This is my next two-levels photo from Segovia. This picture was taken by Panasonic DMC-LS5, cheap small "soap-box".
There is the Roman aqueduct and the ancient part of the city on the background.
Segovia is one of the most interesting cities of Central Spain.
Wish you were here too.

The highlight of a visit of Segovia!
You've chosen an excellent POV to show us both church towers between the arches of the aqueduct.
Well composed. Great sharpness. Well done!
Best regards, Paul

In the first moment I thought it's a roman aqueduct in France Pont du Gard
Wonderful composition I suppose this aqueduct is 2000years old.
I like it (but in the upper left corner the sky is a bit green - but this oversight doesn't change my opinion that it's wonderful shot and composition)
Have a nice weekend!

this view is spectacular, perfect exposure to bring out the detail of the stone aquaduct while showing such a pin Sharp view of the city beyond. Beautiful composition resulting in a really fine shot. Thanks for sharing

eccellente qualità, immagine ben costruita e piacevole.
Una bella serie di archi che ci lasciano vedere anche il bel panorama posteriore.

Have a great weekend.

Zdravo Serghei. I wouldn't mind being there as it looks like a place full of history and architectural marvels. Nice composition which allows us to admire the aqueduct and the city beyond.Excellent exposure delivers the natural light and colours. Ochyen horosho. Klaudio.

Greay POV. I like the contrast between the blue sky and yellow buildings.
PS: In safari I use 70-300 mm lens which was a must. Though wish had a bigger zoom lens :) Hope Ngorongoro won't stay as an old dream. Worth every effort!

an inspired composition this and YES I would like to be here experiencing this beautiful view. Love the texturing and subtle light that makes the glimpses of the architectural majesty beyond all the more compelling. Cameras do not make photographs - talented photographer's do! and you are most definitely in that elite category Serghei! - well done!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

una Segovia d'eccezione grazie a questo tuo scatto molto particolare e di grande suggestione.
Ottima la definizione, ma soprattutto eccellente il taglio verticale che permette di racchiudere in una bella cornice uno spaccato di questa bella città.
Colori perfetti e contrasto eccellente rappresentano ulteriori pregi
Ciao e buon fine settimana

original, beautiful and effective frame within the frame. The acqueduct is presented in a graphical way with excellent perspective and sharpness. The view of the city through its arches is intriguing and promising. The range of details is considerable, your elegant composition has combined foreground and background interest in a wonderful way. I also like the dramatic effect of your light and contrast management. Congratulations and theank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Priviet Serghei, I wish I were in Segovia too! But there is no time for verything :(. Charming views in the upper "windows". marvelous composition.
macjake (57074) 2013-09-07 13:05
imagine how this looked in the past when it was first built too. I wonder how much architecture was there at the time.
great light, great colors, and cool compo
see you around

Hello Serghei, a magnificent picture, with great panoramic view of the ruins and part of a very remarkable city! very attractive vertical, fabulous color!!
all the best

What can I say, just more proof that it's the eye of the photographer, not just the camera that makes for a captivating image! Love this composition, multiple windows looking out beyond...feels like we're getting a two-for-one. The foreground aqueduct cuts across the vertical frame with immediate impact and presence, while the city and sky behind give much color and interest that keeps the eye going further into the picture.
I get the very distinct impression that you had consciously arranged this so that the two towers were smartly placed in full view between the upper row arches of the aqueduct?? :) Sharp detail, texture and well balanced light. Very well done, this turned out great! Have a pleasant day ahead. Take care.
Friendly wishes from the desert,

I once attended a weekend Nikon School, where two world class photographers showed off their masterpieces using cheap small cameras. It's the eye behind the view finder, much more than the camera. You've shown this artistic composition composition, and more than adequate sharpness.

Very good capture of this wonderful Roman aqueduct. The idea of this close-up with a very well managed DOF to include and present fantastic architecture in the background is really great! Well seen and done. TFS.

I wish I were there, too. This reminds me of the Roman aquaduct in Istanbul. Yes, those "cheap, small soap-boxes" will also deliver beautiful photos when the conditions are right. I love your framing through the arches.

Excellent up front vertical view of the famous Roman aqueduct, especially being a two decker, then the distant Segovia town, all in fine resolution.
s_lush (16134) 2013-09-13 6:20
Очень удачная композиция. Мощная аркада акведука не заслоняет, а только улучшает и украшает вид этого старинного города. Хорошая идея, грамотно реализованная в этом снимке. Поздравляю с отличной работой!

Once back from my vacation at the beach, I'm active again in these pages.
Superb composition, typical of a teacher, looking for something different is his framing, I love this closeup of the aqueduct, and especially as churches have placed in the doorway of the arches. Superb image.
Very nice range of colors which gives us this picture.
Magnificent both luminosity and sharpness.
Very well done.
I wish you a happy weekend.
