Despite being ravaged by earthquakes in 1613 and 1693 and floods in 1833 and 1902, Modica has maintained some of the most beautiful architecture in Sicily, in the Sicilian Baroque style. The city possesses a large Baroque Cathedral dedicated to San Giorgio. While the cathedral was rebuilt following the earthquake of 1693, like many other parts of the city its roots are in the Middle Ages.

impressive architecture, but the village as a whole looks pretty neglected.
About the picture, I like how full the frame is. Such a central framing ofthe cathedral would have been dull with a blue sky in the BG, but the village adds a nice counterpoint balancing the whole composition. Congrats!
All the best

J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de terre de cette très belle église.Ainsi que les couleurs passées des maisons en arrière plan.

You did capture the cathedral very well. I like the narrow frame and the pov is very effective. The contrasts in the picture are creating extra historical effect. Nice colours and great light.

Interesting and special how the cathedral almost dissolves in the houses behind thanks to your tele.
Special fine shadow colours, a remarkable result.
