Porto-Venere is an old fishing town built along a ridge, with the other side shown on the no.1 WS, taken from the St.Pietro church at the far end of the promenade, on the south-tip of the La-Spezia bay.
The place enfolds much history, ancient as first century.
The no.2 WS show a closer view on houses along this marvelous place.
Will post more of this beautiful place.

Very nice postcard photo. A lot of Italian towns are similar. The same architecture, similar colours and piers for the boats and yachts. Good report from Porto-Venere.

I like this small harbour with the colored houses. The trees on the right bring a nice green color spot.

A very attractive town and port.
Well composed with the curving road on the foreground.
The picture in the workshop shows the coastline in another way: wild and rough.

The distance between the street and the buildings is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the buildings. The good luminosity is bringing out the pastel colors. have a nice day.
ourania (50541) 2012-06-23 5:01
beautiful colours and atmosphere, lovely and powerful light make an immediate pleasant impression upon viewing this picture. There's also great depth and perspective and excellent sharpness and clarity all over the rich view. I like very much the inclusion of the curve on the foreground and its subtle contrast with the slight curve of the seafront. I love the vividness of the picture. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

The beautiful color postcard of the wonders of Italy. Colorful houses on the sea, the old fortress, a marina, fishing, green pine trees and two old fishermen - all this creates a beautiful picture. Super colors and sharpness.
צהריים טובים. גלויה צבע יפה מפלאי איטליה. בתים צבעוניים על הים, מבצר ישן, מרינה, דייג, עצי אורן ירוקים ושני דייגים ישנים - כל אלה יוצרים תמונה יפה. סופר צבעים וחדות. שלך.
divail (8334) 2012-06-23 18:54
La composition nous laisse entrevoir un peu de route, un peu de plage, des passants, et beaucoup de très jolies maisons, le tout sous un beau ciel bleu.

very beautiful this view of the town with these colored façades and the tower of church peeking above. I liked the quality of the image, excellent light, sharpness and framing; unfortunately this area will be out of my route when I go to italy.
clic (18186) 2012-06-27 9:05
Those juxtaposed dwellings, painted of different colors, compose from the judicious angle you chose the soul of the city and a touristic attraction that one cannot ignore!
josepmarin (58359) 2012-06-29 10:47
A great photo here, in which we can enjoy the beauty of the traditional architecture of this beautiful village, and the fantastic colors of its houses, in a very sharp image, with a good light and a few colors very well managed.
The deep perspective adds a good graphical effect.
It is as a nice postcard, the composition is extremely attractive, and both WS increase the quality of your work.
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-06-30 4:36
This looks like a beautiful place for tourists. A nice boat ride would be fantastic. What a charming view of these facades with many beautiful colors. The blue sky makes it a perfect day for strolling. The sharpness, lighting and colors are fantastic.

A place that i would love to visit. Your photo gives me even more desire to go there.
Didi (60590) 2012-11-12 14:35
I note here a correct exposure of this picture because most of the picture zons has the same value of reflected lights.
Nice view with these coloured houses
jcpix (13930) 2012-11-15 17:57
Nice layout of this seaside village Ike, I especially like how it pulls the eye from right to left through the frame as the building facades become more compact in appearance. The two gentlemen in the foreground add that human element to the scene and shows the daily life aspect. Such vivid colors, looks fantastic. On a personal note, I sure hope the situation over there stabilizes quickly and doesn't escalate into something even worse. Be safe, take care!
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-04-26 4:18
beautiful houses' facades so tipical of this part of italy.
excellent light and sharpness.
silah (2798) 2014-12-28 4:21
Very good composition in photo. Old and new very well combined. Framing and colours look so nice too. Also I liked clouds. TFS my friend. I wish happy new year to you in 2015.

Nice shot with attractive colours and excellent light conditions!
mcmtanyel (27928) 2016-12-02 20:51
What a pretty miniature beach! I like to see seaside towns with beaches still clean enough to swim. The multi-colored buildings in the background make this a charming town.
