This picture was taken outside the St. Peters Basilika in the Vatican City. Despite the fact this usually is a crowded place, I was lucky to find a small area almost empty for people.
I wish you all a pleasant weekend!

Hello Erling ,
This is a superb capture of these huge columns . The presence of the red shirted woman is a real bonus for the composition .

This is a fine composition. from the Vatican. Very good use of the person to show how huge these columns are. I like the arc formed by these massive columns and their shadows. Very unique way to show the Vatican. Thanks for sharing a good one.

Good evening Erling,
The lady in red, taken a moment to rest afoot of the big pillars. You managed beautifully to collect that moment, and she gave good scale to comprehend the size of this arcade.
My best regards,

The woman seems really tiny compared to the huge columns, I find the viewpoint well chosen to make them appear on different plans, which creates an interesting perspective !
Have a nice week-end too !

I´m glad to see Your new picture!You´re right-I´ve been few times there and it´s almost imposible to have so much space practically for your own.But here you had even more luck with this lady sitting at one of the Column.Firstly she gives fantastic color contrast to the surrounding and secondly she gives good sense of scale.
The last thing I enjoy about your picture is the way you composed it and how you created repetitive pattern from these Columns.It helsp You to create so strong graphical impact of the image.
Wish You a nice weekend

Ces colonnes du Vatican permettent de bonnes compositions photographiques. Tu as exploité au mieux la présence de la touriste en rouge.

une très belle composition , j'aime beaucoup la présence de la personne avec son pul rouge au pied des colonnes imposantes; le contraste est impressionnant.
C'est bien pensé.

Det eleganta viset som du beskurit den här bilden på, betonar verkligen de vertikala linjerna på ett mycket övertygande sätt. Kvinnar i rött fungerar som en effektiv ögonfångare. En mycket snygg bild.

nice to see you back.
i've been wanting to see more of your italy photos :)
Its always a sweet koment when a lady in red is in the scene, it automatically makes it that much better :)
Love the way you styled the architecture too. Fine shot.

Well spotted, nicely managed and presented.

Very nice capture from Vatican city with perfect graphical effect. The red shirt of the woman deep in toughts adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and best regards

very nice the view as the creative perspective from the columns of the St. Peters Basilika.I like the tight frame with the man with the red blause to contrast perfect with the other colours of the image.

Wonderful picture with special regards to the colors, contrasts, exposure and, of course, superb composition!
TFS - congrats,

Excellent result, a composition perfectly balanced between big columns and this red lady, well made.
annjackman (21903) 2014-02-15 3:35
I recognised this location immediately. I love the way that you have used the tall columns to give a stunning visual effect. The lady in red is just perfect and a very important element of the composition.
Kind Regards, Ann

una composizione semplice ed efficace, dove le colonne sono rese ancora più possenti dalla presenza della persona e la foto ne guadagna con il punto rosso bene in evidenza.

I like this vertical composition. The woman looks so tiny next to those giant columns! I also like the play of light and shadow on the ground. Because the woman's clothes are so bright, she really stands out, and makes this scene an attractive one. By the way, I hope your shoulder is feeling better now. :-)
