vespa with love
Vespa (Italian pronunciation: [ˈvɛspa]) is an Italian brand of scooter manufactured by Piaggio. The name means wasp in Italian.
The Vespa has evolved from a single model motor scooter manufactured in 1946 by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. of Pontedera, Italy—to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio.
From their inception, Vespa scooters have been known for their painted, pressed steel unibody which combines a complete cowling for the engine (enclosing the engine mechanism and concealing dirt or grease), a flat floorboard (providing foot protection), and a prominent front fairing (providing wind protection) into a structural unit.

L'idée était belle et la réalisation efficace pour nous montrer ces trois Vespa de couleurs différentes dans le même cadrage. Efficace et coloré.

Really nice scene, the colours of the bikes and the variety of angles they are parked at are very appealing. Such cute little vehicles, they make a cool photo!
All the best

So cute three scooters! very attractive picturesque composition, but why you focused on the red one only?
I like that old design, it reminds me the shapes of FIAT500, VW Beetle etc.

Excellent framing of the three colorful scooters with fine details, good light and clarity. Sharpness and contrast are pleasant. Excellent composition, very well done, TFS.

a pleasantly colorful trio of this iconic italian scooter. Well spotted and nicely executed. Only small critique, the DOF could reach all the way back to the blue scooter, but that is really nitpicking.
have a good evening

A beautiful trio of slightly different Vespas on three bright colours. A modern design classic that has ability to renew. A bit pity that the one in back is out of focus.

Hello dear Costantino,
Amazing capture of this beautiful trio !
I had also a metallic blue Vespa in the sixties and was quite happy with it ! Not necessary to say how many beautiful girls I had on my back saddle !!
TFS and best regards

Μεγάλη σύνθεση που επιλέγεται. Τρία πολύχρωμα σκούτερ, το καθένα με διαφορετικό χρώμα, συλλαμβάνονται από τις χαμηλές επιλεγμένα POV. Έμφαση λίγο αδύναμη, αλλά το χρώμα και τη σύνθεση του πλαισίου τέλεια.

Effective tight framing on the 3 bikes with good sharpness and a wonderful primary colour combination of red, yellow and blue. Good sharpness and saturation. The shallow dof works well here. Have a nice Sunday!

A fine street, the old vespas which are rare find nowadays and the glossy stunning colors bring back old memories of the 60s. This is a wonderful shot and something special that you have adopted a very personal angle into this photo and what a coincidence of colors there. Cute is a word and it certainly suits very well here. Keen eyes you have, a well spotted opportunity. Well done.
