    Hi there! First I though fine wide range ... on the second view I saw the peoples on the top of the duomo, and that's exactly what I like on this picture!

    You do a lot of travel...fortunate, indeed. I'm a fan of this sort of wide engulfing view you got here. Nice job.

    Oh ! I miss the old stone made buildings in Europe ...

    Interesting that most of the roof tops are the same color, a spectacular view, especially the lovely dome, along with the beautiful mountainous landscape. Excellent capture.

  • Bob Towery on 13.12.2009 @ 11:12

    Fantastic POV. What an amazing place, eh? I'd be tempted to add a bit of GND to the sky, in Lightroom.

    Superb use of wide angle, with some great foreground interest - love it!
