Ciao Carlo, certo la voglia di staccare la spina c'Ŕ, ma penso sia utile in questa fase far vedere i luoghi colpiti dal sisma e sollecitarne la ricostruzione, la perdita di vite umane Ŕ irreparabile, ma gli edifici con la buona volontÓ e i soldi si ritirano su, di paesini fantasmi ne abbiamo anche troppi, interessante l'iscrizione, splendida nitidezza, bravo, ciao Silvio

what a picturesque scene! The framing is amazing, you have used it perfectly here it goes so well with the scene, even filling the tiny bit between the trees. Beautiful natural blue and green colors.
Pleasure to look at!

I just found this photo which I had not seen before. You combine a lot of the beauty of my city in one picture with a very relaxed atmosphere and fantastic colours and light. I have seen this view many times, of course, but I am still amazed that my city looks so nice.

lovely composition. I like of course the industrial foreground with so many lines and patterns, well spotted and used! However what I like most is of course the fact that you have also included the silhouette of the empire state building. This anchors it in NYC, by introducing a very characteristic element!
Great idea and perfect quality realization,

This is a classic view, more than most places, and the beautiful architecture tells us why. The people in the square animate the view, and especially one woman in red and one in yellow add bright spots.

Good repetition of the geometric patterns and shapes formed by the support structure of the iron bridge, with excellent sharpness and tight framing. The blue sky provides a superb backdrop. Tfs!

Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent sharpness and a nice downward pov of the harbour from an elevated position. The solitary red roof stands out and contrasts well with the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

of yes, this brings back alot of memories!
driving past these large trucks on the hwy with only an inch to spare on either side going 100 km\hr..yikes!
I have to hand it to the locals though, they know how to dress up their trucks, its a cultural theme for sure. You would never see such things here in Canada.

The tight framing works well here although some would prefer inclusion of the tops of the spires. Great reflections in the ornamental fountain with good sharpness. The perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Tfs!

how on earth did I miss this one in your gallery?
glad I happened to stumble on it now.
so you had a 10 hour layover, did you stress out time-wise when you were in the city, fearful of not getting back to the airport in time? Because once you leave the gate, you then have to re-check in and go through security ALL OVER AGAIN right? that would suck, but the benefit is you get to explore the city a bit.
and looking at your WS photos, you certainly had the right idea to get creative and try some panning. Love the WS photo's of the engines, I never knew they were that large!
the final result of this main post is kind of haunting, but in a good way. love the rainbow of colours and the streaking visual effect. awesome!

You observed this moment very nicely. I think this kind of close-up tells us more than a wider view of people re-enacting an ancient battle. It's a well composed photo, nicely cropped and with very good colours.

excellent shot, even the small buildings way off into the bg look very sharp and well defined.
the orange rooftops dominate the scene, other than the blue waters of course.
bright, colourful, sharp, clear, its got it all. and the speedboat provides some fun action to the scene.

hmmmm....when I think of canals like this, Greece doesn't really come to mind right away.
We don't get to see canals from this country on TE, so this is a bonus for sure.
and it looks like another sweet day in Greek Paradise with this weather too. Lots of bright light, the blues and greens come alive in the warmth of the day.
sharp and clear image.
