sicuramente meno in vista , ma molto bella e interessante.
Bello scatto, con la fontana in bella mostra e le facciate illuminate.
Il controluce ha creato un bellissimo gioco con le nuvole e la chiesa sembra irradiare tutta la santità del luogo.

Marvelous view of the famous city. I admire the way you have been able to capture details in such dark shadow in the FG. The church has an unique architecture and the whole square looks magnificent through your lens. Light also is very well managed. Thanks for sharing and wish you a very happy and healthy 2014!

love this! Your POV and light management here are just superb. The detailing and atmosphere the backlight creates is both compelling and wonderful. Excellent!
All the very, very best for 2014 - B.

This is a superb image and playing with challenging back lighting with the sun hidden behind the Golthic Church and what an effect we have got here. The clarity is so good finely balanced in beautiful almost blue-white combination. A lively old town square and so appealing with the fountain anchors and leads into the scene. Detail is spot on and focus is pin sharp. It is very obvious a lot of thought has gone into this, well composed and it is a very well worked out shot. This one is absolutely fantastic. Great work, Congrats
Have a great 2014, Happy New Year.

The wideness of the square is giving depth to the composition. The pont of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the Sanra-Chiara church. A good management of the back light which does not hurt the output of the colors. Happy New Year 2014.

Ciao ami Silvio
Belle lumière derrière l'église, qui est une architecture intéressante bien présenter avec la fontaine

in questa foto mi piace molto la gestione delle geometrie e l' impatto delle prospettive che rendono la tua composizione attraente e gradevole. La chiarezza e' stupenda, le tessiture ed i dettagli fanno gran parte del fascino di questa vista. L' effetto della luce e delle nuvole eteree e' incantevole ed aggiunge un dinamismo sottile e piacevole nella parte superiore. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
