Photographer's Note

Quoting Lord Byron, it's quite fair to name Dubrnovnik as the "pearl of the Adriatic". Being a great merchant republic for more than seven centuries, it was together with Venice the main trading city on the Adriatic area, which offered wealthiness to its inhabitants and led to that magnificient architecture.

The picture, like the previous ones, was taken in the early morning from the ramparts built in 1466. It is said it is the best-preserved medieval city in the whole world. The tower bell belongs to the XIV th century Dominican Monastery located at the entrance of the old harbor (left side).

Original picture, I ran it through PTlens to limit barrel distorsion, then I applied USM filters.
