Riva street

By oldgreyheron      
As I'm dashing about, here we have another warm Italian holiday image. This is a narrow street in the wonderful resort of Riva del Garda at the Northern end of Lake Garda. I cannot decide if I have this too contrasty / dark - on one of my computer screens irt looks fine, on the other too dark - please do let me know what you think!

If it looked lighter it wouldn't look real. There's not much sunlight reaches the depths of these very narrow streets .... but I think the lighting is good because I can actually see every door and window and even the bumps on the road. It's a beautiful little Italian street scene.

Like the light and the dark shadow areas creates a nice effect.

I think it looks about right. I'm sure the builders of such townscapes were aware of the need to keep cool: didn't the wealthier people live downstairs and leave the penthouses to the plebs for that reason? Just a thought...

I really like this. The pattern of the lamp is so good against the sky.
If it was any lighter this would not look right
Lovely shot
