As soon as you arrive in Taormina, you will feel the magical, mythical atmosphere spread all around which has enchanted visitors from all over the world for years and years. Settled on a hill of the Monte Tauro, Taormina dominates two grand, sweeping bays below and on the southern side, the top of Mount Etna, the European highest active volcano, often capped with snow, offering to the visitors a breathtaking, dramatic and memorable view over almost one hundred miles of Mediterranean sea. Taormina really seems to be born as a tourist resort since past times, when ancient people like the Sicels, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Saracens, Arabs, Normans and Spaniards chose it as their residential site thank to its favourable position, mild climate and magic atmosphere.

A most attractive and nicely balanced study in tones and textures. Well composed and benefiting from a good even light. Lovely colours and excellent rendering of the textural detail.

J'aime beaucoup ces cadrages très précis qui cernent bien un environnement très invitant avec de belles portes et surtout de belles fleurs. On sent une belle texture dans l'ensemble.

really like this. So perfectly composed and captured. The colours, textures and detailing are just irresistible but it is the light and your management of it that make this quite special. Well done!

Some of the most interesting pictures that grab my attention are often the simplest of subjects...and this is a great example. The colors and rustic textures are a beautiful mixture here that exudes a quiet charm of the every day elements that surround us, which make for a very pleasing image. Nice recognition of the opportunity here, it's turned out to be a pleasing visual and representation of the town. Have a great day ahead.

I like the horizontal margin of decorated stone at the top & the 3 horizontal stairs at the bottom. They frame the shot nicely. Good sharpness and the purple flowers add a good splash of color. The arched door at right makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

very beautiful compo accentuated with the mauve flowers on the wall. I don't even mind the slight tilt in perspective, everything looks so rustic and unique.
Thanks and best wishes

Daniel, a marvelous picture from a legendary and very elegant place to visit..traditional, fantastic Taormina in Sicilia, a dream vacation place as is your picture!!

a very lovely composition of eloquent details, textures and colours. Your picture conveys elegance and mystery and immediately enchants the viewer, just like mentioned in your note. I like very much the upward point of view and the well cropped full frame. The rich colours of the vegetation and the rough textures of the building make a fascinating combination. The moody lighting creates a fine, romantic atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
