This time i partially broke my personal 'rule' to not post (and not comment) photos of peoples on TE.
In the night of 1° May i was waked up from a strong, constant buzz under my window: i have looked out and have the surpraise to see literally thousand (i think al least 3.000) peoples coming from everywhere. The park was 'covered' of cars.
Absolutely no idea about what was happening... every girls with a wicker's basket covered with white material, everyone (girls and mans) with a little candle. Everybody going slowly to the other side of the skyscraper where i live.
So, with slippers & Canon (... but no tripod!), i go out to see.
Was a ceremony for the orthodox Easter: the little church (perhaps 20 sitting laces) here under was too little and all the peoples was out, on the road - literally blocked - singing with a little candle in the hands.
Sorry if the shot isn't enough sharp, but i think the whole image can be even so interesting (looking a bit more distant from the monitor as usual the pattern is clearer)
I hope this can be interesting even for you too.

Very well done. The light and the atmosphere is really well done.

Bella foto Giorgio, non è venuta perfettamente, ma hai ben spiegato il perchè!
dalla foto piccola nella pagina Gallery ho visto il tuo nome, poi ho visto la scritta Italia...poi ho guardato l'immagine...ho collegato il tutto è ho pensato guardando l'immagine piccola piccola: "ma che bella foto di acini d'uva! sarà una foto della vendemmia 2004!"
....inizio a perdere colpi!

Nice POV and surely an unusual scene.

It's like river of candles. Excellent shot in dificult lighting conditions. Very effective point of view and angle. Well seen!

Brilliant work. What more can I say? Ive had an idea for a shot like this but I have not been able to find enough candles concentrated like this to realize a shot like this.

It was a good idea to break the rule, because this pic is worth it. A mysterious atmoshere (at the beginning I didn't understand it was people holding the candles!!).
