Spello, a lovely town in the heart of Umbria, ancient Roman town "most splendid colony Julia," of that era are important remains, including the magnificent port of Venus. Equally rich are the monuments of a later period, palaces and churches, among which we note the larger church of Santa Maria Maggiore, with its splendid frescoes by Pinturicchio, stored nell'interna Baglioni Chapel, and Perugino.
But Spello is primarily a city on a human scale, with an historical center still lived to love and maintained by its inhabitants.
Worth a visit.

This is a nicely composed shot using the alleyway to lead the eye to the women and light. The women add scale and life to the scene. Your light management is outstanding bringing out nice details in the shadowed areas without overexposing the brightly lit area.

Buona sera Silvio,
Charming narrow alley, decorated with green plants in big pots, shaded from summer sun-rays, a perfect place for local gathering in a hot day.
Well collected the nice moment.

A very nice atmosphere: a very old narrow street, where everything is stone, plants everywhere, a group of old ladies chatting and in the shadow in what seems a very hot day... Quite a familiar scene, although I have never been to Italy. And marvelously captured!

une belle scène de la vie quotidienne dans cette ruelle joliment bordée de plantes en pot. Une belle réalisation.

bella scenetta verace, le anziane abitanti accaldate, sono perfettamente inquadrate sotto gli archi.
Le linee della pavimentazione funzionano bene per la prospettiva e le piante verdi contribuiscono a dare colore al vicolo.

Another delightful daily life composition with these ladies gathered together under the archway for a gossip. I like very much the soft lighting and the mood it engenders. Superb rendering of the textural detail in the walls and cobbled roadway.

Very nice perspective of this street with arches and stone facades such, has great charm, all the greenery of the large number of pots, makes the place very welcoming and would ensure that too ..... cool in summer , so the ladies are there, in animated conversation.
An image to enjoy with its beautiful color, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Best wishes my friend.

in questa foto l' effettiva ed interessante descrizione del vicolo pittoresco e' accompagnata da una gradevole scena della vita quotidiana. Hai trovato la distanza e la prospettiva ideali per catturare questa scena senza disturbare le signore e la superba atmosfera intima. La luce e' diffusa calmamente, le tessiture sono catturate con ottima nitidezza ed i colori dimostrano il meglio delle loro qualita' naturali. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

This is truly a charming scene with the elderly folk enjoying a chat out in the well kept old street of the village. A timeless scene from a style of life fast disappearing.
have a good weekend

A charming alleyway teeming with life and lots of gems in this olde and pleasant ambient. I love the depth, perspective and the features creating such a great visual effect painted by soothing colours and rustic beauty. People presence is always a great value to the shot. Lovely street scene, Congrats.

Ciao Silvio, molto buona vista di questa scena interessante della vita quotidiana nella strada stretta, molto ben catturato con grande pov con grande fotografia. Un quadro interessante con una buona nitidezza, profondità, luce e colore. Molto buono e bello lavoro perfettamente fatto, complimenti mio amico. Grazie per aver condiviso questo lavoro interessante.
Buon pomeriggio e felice Domenica.
Cordiali saluti dal sud della Spagna.

A pleasant diffused light and the fg stone path adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The 2 arches nicely frame the bg orange red wall. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs!
PiotrF (10418) 2014-08-11 13:55
Your photo is showing of the beauty of this place well. The exposure looks great of the old architecture . The framing is very good and the light exposure is excellent, such as the sharpness is. Very well done

Hi Silvio, A relaxing scene with all these chatting people sitting in the alley with full of plants around them. Nice DOF created by the length of the alley and the plants narrow it even more. I like the stone walls and they give a solid and old feelings to the area. Great composition with good details. Thank for sharing and have a nice vacation.
danos (88883) 2014-08-19 5:36
nice and charmy this cute corner of the town with the old people to chat sitting in this narrow alley.I like the created perspective as the beauty of the place.
berek (41101) 2014-08-22 21:32
beautiful scene true, the older inhabitants flushed, they are perfectly framed under the arches.
The lines of the paving work well for the prospect and green plants help to give color to the alley.
Have a nice weekend.
