Photographer's Note

This photo presents one of the several little squares which are situated in the old town of my home town, Tarnów. The square was named after King Casimir III the Great. In the middle of the square there is a monument of the national Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz, it is however hard to spot from this angle as it is set against the colourful houses and it faces other direction. The red tower (72m high) belongs to the Gothic cathedral basilica. It was built in first part of 14th century. It has a quite impressive interior. I tried to take a photo of this square a while ago with several shots which I wanted to stitch. However I run into problems as the houses did not seem even or straight. If you look at some of them the distances among windows are not always regular. I thought it was an artefact of my stitching but later I realized that it is indeed real. Still I decided to take this photo as a single wide angle shot which you see here now. Sadly even the wide angle lens was able only to include a fragment of this square.
