Delightful town of about 20,000 stands on a hill overlooking the Tiber valley, its name comes from Tutere, which means "Border Town", in fact, founded in the eighth and seventh centuries BC by the Umbrians has long been a meeting place and contamination with neighboring Etruscan civilization.
In 340 B.C. became Roman changing the name in Colonia Julia Fida Tuder with effect from the first century BC, and acquired the right to mint its own coins.
During the Middle Ages was a powerful free town, as evidenced by the buildings of the splendid Piazza del Popolo, then passed under the rule of Acts, Malatesta and Francesco Sforza, before finally becoming part of the Papal States.

Ciao, Silvio, my neighbor today again,
Excellent view! I really like this photo, but I'd like to show you my version in WS.

Glad to have you back today with a traditional picture, luminous, colorful and well composed
As a matter of fact (sorry about that) I'm not at all convinced by HDR images that, to me, are very artificial and look like cardboard, except in rare special conditions with extreme exposure range, difficult to cope with
have a nice week, best regards

The view of the rooftop in your picture is stunning! This is one of the reasons drawing travelers around the world to Italy. I miss Umbria.

The delightful vignette effect occasioned by the lighting conditions makes for a very attractive composition, whilst also concentrating the viewer's attention on the town itself. Lovely warm colours and excellent clarity.

The pool of light is lovely falling on the town. It really stands out against the darker FG. A lovely crisp picture with a wonderful view of what lies beyond the town.
Kind Regards, Ann

Nice pov on the town, interesting architecture and nice result with the light, the contrast with this Fg in the shadows is well managed.

What a beautiful panoramic view with fantastic light, the FG is clearly separated from the BG, great depth

sei salito fino al cucuzzolo per ritrarre una Todi splendida.
Non avevo mai avuto modo di vederla ripresa così dall'alto e devo dire che è proprio bella con lo sfondo della campagna.
Bellissima anche la luce che scolpisce il disegno delle case.
Ciao e buona aerata

Beautiful view of the town with the buildings illuminated as if by special effects! The dark foreground and the endless paddy fields merging with the sky are lovely. Thanks for sharing. have a nice day.

A nice cityscape this seen from a well selected high point of view to get so much interesting details and architectural elements. Well executed even during a quite difficult light condition. Like it! TFS!

Ancora una bella vista sul vilaggio. Il POV mostra la piccola città nel suo ambiente. Il grande panorama da una impressione aerea molto spettacolare. Peccato che il primo piano sia all'ombra.

Todi è molto bella, ma questa foto è splendida per conto suo, un panorama fantastico con l'aiuto di una bella luce che illumina il centro storico.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-02-03 14:59
May be the WS is good, anyway your composition is superbe with the small village so well light that its posible to admire the old towers and the rural landscape at the back
Thanks for the informative note

The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the buildings of the town. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice dya.

Très jolie lumière sur cette petite ville et ses beaux bâtiments anciens dominant la vallée.
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-02-03 23:51
Spectacular view of the town overlooking the Tiber Valley.Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.TFS.
jhm (155370) 2014-02-04 3:09
I like the shadows in foreground, this cares for excellent contrast about the area.
Also the village with church and monastery are a very nice architecture.
Nice panoramic view with a little bit fog in background, make these picture lovely.
Composition and captured, are excellent presented.
Very well done, TFS.
abmdsudi (55706) 2014-02-04 3:56
I love the light and shadow overlooking wide view of the old town nicely taken on a bright brilliant weather. The compo works well packed with details, so richly coloured and excellent contrast to blue sky. A photogenic scene when the catch light makes it very cheery landscape shot. Congrats
Subhogen (4067) 2014-02-04 8:31
Nice view of the sunlit town from your high POV. Great timing to catch the wonderful light on a part of the town. Fantastic shot with magical light, natural colours and excellent clarity, thanks for sharing.

Superbe vue en plongée sur cette ville au-dessus de la vallée. La lumière permet d'apprécier l'ensemble. Netteté excellente. Bien fait.
dekanski (5642) 2014-02-04 10:46
Lovely view Silvio. Pity that the humidity was so high and visibility is not greater, with a clear background it would be more attractive.
jurek1951 (42196) 2014-02-04 12:23
