As we arrive to Siena, a heavy thunder-storm greeted us, and we all found refuge from the rain inside the Basilica-di-San-Domenico in picture. What's inside? In future posts.
The famous Torre-del-Magnia rise on the BG .
Location of the piazza: 43.3204, 11.3264

The last days get we always thunderstorms about Belgium with a lot rain and very cool for the time of year.
You create a very well image the church and buildings to the left.
I wait on your interior shots, perhaps can I learn of you.
Composition and presentation are pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The lady with the lilac umbrella helps set the mood here. I like the point of view with the road directing us toward the far tower, which follows on nicely from the one in the foreground. Agreeable soft light occasioned by the rainy atmosphere and a harmonious palette of colours.

Sienne est dans mes villes préférées d'Italie. Même sous la pluie elle demeure belle. Ceci n'est peut-être pas le plus beau coin de la ville mais le ciel donne un beau contraste.

Very nice picture of a little-known corner of the city, but no less charming for that, despite the rainy day has a good image and a nice light color.
Enjoy the weekend.

Nice image taken on a rainy day. We are waiting for that big hurricane here in New jersey. Can't get out for pics. This one is a good shot with new and old structures with people walking. Nice colors.

The road is sending my eyes toward the tower which is giving depth to the composition. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the Torre-del-Magnia. The threathening sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

Nice shot. here the rain still not so heavy. When you can find a shelter in beautiful church - it is great. Impressive walls with no decorations.

Hi Ike, Your post here just reminds me of so many times when we plan and research our trips the weather can get in the way or not in your case, where we see a daily rain scene of Siena, with its super Architecture,TFS, and Well done, Cheers Iain.

almost empty the place in front of the Basilica because of the rain.But i can say that i like to see the place without the crowds to cover the place.Good presentation as good the light management.
Have a good Sunday,Danos

despite the cloudy day the image results interesting, the detail of the tower in the back and the presence of the woman with the purple umbrella are well captured, well seen,

Dobro bi dosla jedna kisa kod nas, ovih dana smo imali tropske teperatura sa vise od 40 C stepeni.
Dobar trenutak snimka, pogled na mesto i arhitekturu, lepe boje i fotografija.
Prijatno popodne i sve najbolje.
Well the rain came one of us, these days we have had with tropical temperatures over 40 C degrees.
A good time recording, look at the place and architecture, beautiful colors and images.
Pleasant afternoon and all the best.

nice urban scene here. Rainy? Cannot say that I see a lot of water around :-)
As always, very good details, colours, viewing angle and clarity. I can already recognize your photography without looking to signature or comments.
You made your own *signature* on TE :-)
Thank You for sharing,

With this capture you've left the photos and conventional views of Siena, showing other architectures also very interesting.
Despite the rainy day, you got a good light and colors.
Excellent composition and detail.

I like the stormy sky and the wet pavement. Clarity of the image is stunning. You are walking towards the old city centre. The photo explains itself very well. We have a glimpse of the famous Torre-del-Magnia. You POV and its angle tell us that you were also fascinated by the stormy sky and its colours. Often I feel that your photos are almost always self-explanatory. It is a very intriguing image. Thank you Ike.
Very best wishes,
jmdias (57061) 2011-09-11 15:24
despite the rain and the dark clouds, the light was nice and I liked the sharpness , good details of the place. I hope I get to know it next year..

Une arrivée sous la pluie qui fait un beau contraste des couleurs de la basilique avec le ciel, et une prise parfaite,

Thunderstorm, that explains the umbrella. It looks like most of the tourists are not bothered by it, though. Siena is a very nice town, TFS.
