One from our recent trip to Rome.

I always find city photography a challenge, and especially in a place like Rome where everything has been captured millions of times from every possible angle. Even more difficult in some ways than Rannoch Moor Wink

Anyway, this was just before a particularly heavy storm (as you can probably tell from the sky) which at least had the advantage of creating some atmosphere!

C&C welcome as ever, many thanks for looking

Impressive architecture, well photographed. Love the reflections in the wet paving.

Nice composition. The glistening ground makes it stand out.

Surprising lack of people. Well composed with great colour

i think the reflections make this just about right, without them, it would be only half as good. A wonderful image Chris.

I agree Anthony - for once I was glad to have rain - at least it meant I'd get something a little different!

Chris - this is excellent! Having been here myself and going again in the new year I think you have captured the essence of the magnificent architecture which is so abundant in this city. A glorious shot with great lighting. You must have been up early for this as this square is normally packed.

Lovely work

Andy

Thanks for all your kind comments. I'm undecided between the versions, I love the tones in the colour version but it has a different feel in B&W.

Andy, lucky you to be going back. This was our 3rd visit and there is always something new to discover. Might get round to posting a few more images soon...

Lovely image! As Anthony said, those reflections really add something Smile
Can't make my mind up which version... have you thought about a selenium toned mono too - just to make our lives more difficult Wink

Cheers, Goggz

All three are good Chris, but V3 for me. I'm a sucker for a great mono image!
