Cattedrale di Santa Maria Matricolare

By TrevBatWCC    
Quite close to the Adige River in Verona and at the northern end of its main city centre is its 12th century Duomo (Cathedral). As you can see, by this time the sun had finally come out! 😎 Didnít actually get inside, but quite impressive on the outside.
It's a bit awkward to photograph as itís in quite a confined space surrounded by other buildings. Quite free of tourists around here too, everyone seemed to be doing their Christmas shopping in the centre where all the shops and markets were!
Just to the right of the large doorway at the front of the Cathedral was this bronze statue (V3), The Blue Angel of Acceptance, or Hospitality, by Albano Poli.

Many thanks to Graham (Ericsamson), Kate (Irishkate) and Dave (HobbitDave) for their User Awards on my previous upload L'Officina dell'Arte , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 👍

Fine set of the architectural detail in this fine Cathedral in Verona: I particularly like the close up of the clock in the first version, Trev.

The correct running order but I do like the closer details particularly the statue, Trev.

A very interesting and well captured set, Trev.
Very well detailed images. I particularly like V1 and the POV of V2.
Good of the people to be doing their Christmas shopping and keeping out of your way!!WinkWink

V2 is my fave out of this set, love that brick work combined with the blue sky!
A superb set Trev. Looks to be a very interesting place to visit.

A lovely collection of images! I think I'd go for the lead and Version 1 - I really like the close up of the clock and the way the framing/composition makes the most of the symmetry and geometric shapes. SmileSmileSmile

Love the statue of the angel, who looks as if she is staggering home wearing heels after a night on the town!Wink

It is good to focus on Verona instead of the more usual scenes of Venice.

Wonderful architecture - will people flock to see our modern buildings in years to come or will they all be flattened for something newer again>
