Wow! Wonderful graphic view in B&W Yves! I love the composition and the people included in it. The white lines in right work finely and the framing is very nice and suitable. Congratulations!

Wonderful shot Yves. Great perspective. I like it, partly covered by shadow.
Nice b&w photo. Well done!!

very beautiful :) I remember the coffee shop as one of the really expensive ones for a sip of coffee (for us, expresso is really a sip :)..
I loved the graphic..very neat...I think it is also good that you could catch the place with only a few people...

very very very fine composition, Yves.
every single element cooperates to make it dinamic yet elegant.
congratulations and thanks for sharing!

The great thing about this is that it's such an interesting and original composition of such an oft photographed place, very hard to do, impressive.

This one works for me, i like the rythem & contarst of your composition, the use of light & shades is also superb. Well done!

Great patterns, very well seen. The split between left and right half is great but then tis little group of people, all in one small area of the picture but still going different ways. Fine B&W-job too.

Wonderful Yves, a sparsely inhabited abstract painting. The b/w enhaces the graphic feel. I like the contrast between round (tables) en square (trottoir). Very well seen & done, Yves.

Very interesting shot here, Yves.
I like those repetitive tables/chairs as well as the lines. Nice shot!

i missed this one somehow, but luckily i found it.
and it is a nice picture, i really like this careful composition of tables and chairs, those white lines are interesting too. and the people there is a nice addition. i like the composition of the picture with three different parts, very interesting picture!

This is just amazing. I really like the balance between both sides of the frame. The tables make nice vertical lines throughout the shot and the play of shadows is really excellent. The characters are nicely spaced out and add a much needed human element to the scene. Wonderful work!

I like the bw view, and the borders. Was so curious when I saw the thumbnail..

This is wonderful, Yves. After the amount of critiques you already got on this one, I'm going to sound like a broken record saying that the geometry in this shot is superb - as is your point of view and choice of b&w. Could almost be a still from an old Fellini or Antonioni movie. Excellent work, congratulations.

amusant ces formes si en rupture les unes avec les autres. Les arrondis semblent prendre une tête d'avance sur les carrés et les angles. Bataille rangée sur la piazza san marco! Bravo!

Superb image, it has great ballance and range and is exquisitly presented and IS Venice.
One of my favorites.
Josh69 (1437) 2004-04-21 8:51
Excellent. Works very well in B&W - I think any colours would be distracting. Even the brickwork has a good pattern.

I like very much this picture too, very original!! You have got an extraordinary eye for the composition. It’s very sharp and also the shadows are very legible and the people included make this geometrical shot animate! Beautiful!
Luko (14000) 2004-05-19 12:26
Superbly seen, it reminds me some HCB geometry play, but to IMHO the upper character the guy carrying his child should be cropped out of the frame.
tootsie (400) 2006-01-03 19:52
this is an amazing shot! i know there is not much room up there and you must have had to zoom quite a bit to capture this as you cannot really take a photo looking straight down. i love your choice of half chairs and half piazza ground. really interesting mix of geometric patterns!
rui_seabra (205) 2006-10-06 16:58
so nice, so geometrical...
and the B&W works just perfectly...
