Piazza del Plebiscito

By Morgs  
Undeniably the best piazza in Naples with the San Francesco di Paola church. But, it's dirty and could do with a real good clean up, as could the rest of the city. But, it's great for photography...........

Thanks for your support on my last image!!

Fantastic image, Dave!

I just love powerful compositions! Grin

Would probably also look really good as a mono....Wink

Do you mean piazza or pizza!! GrinGrinGrin.

Great pov and a wonderful perspective. The colour of the sky balances perfectly with the flagstones. Lovely image.

Dave, simply a superb image, love it and Bill hit the nail on the head, this would so work well also as a mono.

great composition and choice of toning. Well deserved EC.
Morgs 11 20 62 Wales
26 Oct 2011 6:38PM
Thanks for the comments. Re toning, actually there isn't any guys. This is out of the camera and levels selectively altered to balance the exposure and curves used to darken the sky. A bit of sharpening and that was it.

I've only ever passed through Naples [it doesn't have a great reputation], so I was surprised to see such a cracker of a shot - on a gloomy day at that. Superb composition and tones too - I expect it would look good in mono, but I can't help feel it would lose some of the atmosphere the blue tones are giving this.

Congratulations on POTW - well deserved.

Hi Terry,

I use a Nikon D 300s and I used my trusty sigma 10-20mm lens. Shot at F11.
