An interesting note and a most striking photograph in which you have used the strong sunlight and resultant strong shadows to utmost advantage.
Your composition is superb, the lines of the ornate foreground fence and its shadow leading us perfectly toward the little Italian style structure with its steps and domed roof which itself is perfectly placed in the frame - bang on the right "third". The benches on the left nicely balance the little building perfectly.
Glorious light and vibrant colours, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.

Hi Brian,red and blue and a magnificent shadow effect on the ground,truly beautiful and original this perspective,the empty benches give a peaceful effect,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

This really is a cracking shot!
It has the amazing ability to just pull you in; of course, the vivid floor tiles combined with the shadow pattern make a stunning lead an are responsible for that!
It is a beautifully composed shot and exhibits pin sharp clarity.
What a change from the recent rains!!
Have a great day,

I´ve just commented one of Ourania´s picture,where I praised the contrast between red and blue:)
So I´ll write it agian-it looks really superb!
Alone the color scheme and contrast are something,which make the shot so spectacular,but here you could also benefit from so great play of light&shade.
Creative and fabulous shot!
Have a nice day

Excellent photography Brian, top notch!
Like your attention to composition over here to take this fine shot. Great use of the ornate railing and its beautiful shadow to lead us to the beautiful dome in the BG. Marvelous colours contrasting so well on every inch of the frame. My compliments on a fine fine capture. Thanks for sharing.
macjake (62280) 2014-03-06 2:12
this photo was taken yesterday?
Looks like you're having some beautiful weather for a change.
good on ya to take advantage of it.
love those shadows, they really do grab our attention don't they.
and we all know how much you enjoy your blue sky :)
excellent color combinations, and the sharpness and level of detail is first class.

The curving line of the criss-cross shadow makes this shot Brian. It sweeps the viewer's eyes straight to the pavilion which stands crisply white against a gorgeous sky. Of course the colour contrast is classic and gives a big punchy look to the overall composition.
What lovely weather for a day at the sea.... lucky you!
Warm regards Rosemary

Excellent view through the colonnade, nice light & colors, superb light and shadow play.
Very well done.
jhm (145134) 2014-03-06 5:37
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Everything nice on one point to the end of the picture.
You play excellent with light and shadows.
You took a very nice picture with a lovely composition.
The clear sky shows a nice contrast.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
CLODO (32544) 2014-03-06 6:14
nice POV, the railing shadows guide the eye to the white tower, and fortunatly you had a good weather with an astonoshing blue sky; typically your style
yquem46 (38750) 2014-03-06 6:15
A superb compo, for the luminosity, the colors and the pattern of shadows on the ground
dkmurphys (53481) 2014-03-06 6:18
A superb work of art here. I like the composition with the strong shadows over the pavement.
Enjoy a nice evening.
Nicou (131358) 2014-03-06 7:12
sur ce pavage rouge quel effet d'ombre et quel dessin cela fait sueprbe cpatage et iamge merveilleuse vue avec les banc et cett coupole en fond grandiose vue.
Bravo et amitié
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-03-06 9:59
good choice of the vertical format for this image - it enhances the character of the scene and makes the red pavement leading an eye even better. I like the shadow on it which makes its own pattern. The white building at the end finishes off the composition in lovely way. Very pretty, bright blue sky provides good and contrasting background.
Giustiniani (3632) 2014-03-06 14:17
une belle composition avec de la profondeur, de belles couleurs et un jeu d'ombre intéressant et esthétique. Superbe photo,
dekanski (4310) 2014-03-06 15:27
extremely well done! Everything is in right place. All praise!
carlo62 (39651) 2014-03-06 15:40
grande prospettiva, l'ombra è molto bella e aumenta l'effetto della profondità.
Molto bella anche la luce e i colori, saturi al punto giusto.
Una foto magnifica
Corry (4508) 2014-03-06 21:01
Beau point de vue sur cette colonnade. J'aime beaucoup cette rampe légèrement courbée et son ombre sur la tuile rouge. Très bien fait.
rychem (28911) 2014-03-06 22:35
Wow! Very impressive, the play of shadows and the combination of colors are simply fantastic
jjcordier (79275) 2014-03-06 23:26
Magnifique photo, composée à la perfection. Le jeu d'ombres est superbe, tout comme la luminosité de l'ensemble et les oppositions de couleurs.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-03-06 23:31
What is striking about this photo is how beautifully you have made the shadows be a perfect carpet to the stairs. Of course, the building too has a wonderful structure.
annjackman (21053) 2014-03-07 7:41
Stunning! The strong shadow on the red, sunlit floor draws my eye to the dome. This is a master class in composition. Immaculate processing and has to be a favourite for me.
Kind Regards, Ann.
gildasjan (42718) 2014-03-07 9:53
Une composition avec une ligne d'horizon centrée qui se justifie ici par la bonne complémentarité apportée par ces couleurs bleu et brique.
Noel_Byrne (27742) 2014-03-07 11:16
This is very striking. The blue and red combination is one that I always find myself attracted go and no difference here. In fact I would be more drawn to this as the image contains such fine shadows with intricate details, (not easy I find in shadows) and then at the end this fantastic little temple. And all of this with a fine seeping curve of hee balustrade. Class shot, as always thanks for sharing.
ACL1978 (7511) 2014-03-07 18:34
Great use of the railing and shadow here, Brian - a really perfect lead in, specially in this nice bright light that makes the shadow thick and dark. The color contrast is beautiful too, and the brightness of most of the frame allows the dome to really stand out in its lack thereof. A real beauty here - thanks!
COSTANTINO (60561) 2014-03-07 22:49
I could say tiles and shadows and amazin blue sky
a shot with strong and dynamic contrasts
creating a fantastic atmosphere
magnificent shadows effect on the
ground this curving line makes the
difference adding beauty
original version indeed
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2014-03-08 1:00
what a lovely composition it is! I like how you framed it with the decent patern created by the shadow of the fence. Nice architecture at back completes a superb composition. Great image quality. Very well done. Tfs.
kasianowak (7573) 2014-03-08 8:55
The foreground and leading lines created using this shadow shadow - what an amazing idea! Love the saturated colours of the sky and the tiles.
Have a nice weekend
ChrisJ (105455) 2014-03-08 12:04
Nothing to fault here. Density levels are perfect with punchy light contrasts and splendid saturation sahrpness and warm cold color contrats. I also like the shadow play created by th railing at right. Have a fantastic and hopefully warmer week!
abmdsudi (47542) 2014-03-09 0:32
A superb composition captured from a wonderfully advantageous point of view allowing one to capture as much of this great scene as possible. Wonderful clarity and interest in depth strengthened by combination of shapes, lines, shadows and the intensity of colours, Great capture, TFS
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-09 9:20
quella di oggi è bellissima, ma questa per me è insuperabile sia nella composizione che nella contrapposizione di colori, tutti saturi nella migliore delle maniere per un risultato incredibilmente suggestivo.
Ciao e buona domenica
Cricri (112009) 2014-03-09 10:51
Magnifique comme l'ombre de la barrière se dessine sur le sol d'une netteté incroyable, comme un dessin sur le sol, bon POV, lumière et couleurs, très belle réalisation
HimalAnda (10323) 2014-03-10 13:57
The shadow on the red ground is beautiful, very graphical, with a perfect sharpness. It drives the eye in an elegant curve toward the dome in the background.
A beautiful picture!
delpeoples (55254) 2014-03-11 1:42
I really like the effect on perspective that the vertical frame has had here, along with the shadows cast by the wrought iron barrier. The curves splay beautifully out of the foreground corner and guide the eye in one sweeping movement towards the colonnade. The rich colours are delightful too.
npecanhuk (70782) 2014-03-11 19:01
Lovely and charming details!
Very beautiful and attractive picture!
Sharpness, management of light, (saturated) colors, contrasts, vertical format, dof, chosen pov and composition are all oustanding photo qualities here!
Special regards to the lower fg, with that fence and its shadows... a real highlight!
TFS - congrats,
Robert1969 (7160) 2014-03-14 13:20
Once againg a picture with beautiful warm and
bright colors. Excellent point of view: the
hence and it's shadow creates a lots of depth
and vertical position emphasize that extra.
Composition and light management are also
dta (72033) 2014-03-14 13:24
Hello Bryan ,
This one is so striking . A superb blue-white-red , with fine curves , lines and patterns , and splendid shades on the red bricked floor .
adores (41618) 2014-04-02 14:19
Very well captured! I really like the shadow of the balcony on the pavement, leading our eyes to the white dome in background. It's a well thought composition, with great colours!
jmdias (59190) 2014-05-28 7:02
excellent framing using well the shapes of the shadows and the elements of the place. the light and colors are fabulous. a beautiful work, well done. TFS.
