Hi i'm comin over every day and i just want to say you are one of the best photoblog i know !!!
Congratulations and cheers from France !
Great perspective! Very nice shot.
What a sweet surprise to see Florence today. I lived in Florence and adore the city. I am always amazed at the scope and beauty of your photographs - you even make TO look gorgeous.
What a wonderful shot Sam!! The lighting throughout is perfect. Its been a while since I've been there and I have been gazing at this scene for a while, enjoying every minute. Thanks.
in my opinion, this is one of your top 10 shots. great perspective, colours and details.
This is an amazing photo. So much going on but the building keeps it all together. very very nice.
Certainly a lot of effort has been put into decorating the buildings. I'm wondering what time of day this was, but don't expect you to remember.
Great shadow detail considering the contrast range.
Really cool, was there a lot of post processing needed? Looks nartual and unnatural at the same time, but I really like it, really effective.
I notice the f is only 5.6 but the stuff in the distance is still really clear, how was that achieved? I'm still trying to work out that sort of thing.
wow, love the perspective. also loving my own new 10-22 lens!
These are the kind of scenes you buy a wide angle lense for!
Thats like uber wide, just whoa.
Beautiful shot! It has motion in it and it must be the prespective in the photo. What a inspiring location anyway.
wow man....that's really nice shot.
I'd be curious to know how this photo was processed. Some perspective correction? Some dodging and burning to get the lighting of the ground matched up with that of the sunlight striking the upper levels? I assume that there was direct sunlight on the fascade on the right, but on the left, it was reflected light?
nice shot, have you combined different exposures in this shot ?
I'm a long time viewer first time poster,
I just wanted to say that I think this is one of your best shots. I often observe the pictures for under a minute, but this one really caught my eye and I can't stop looking at it. Great job.
It reminds me of one from a few years ago taken in an alley in paris with the top half of the building shining a vibrant gold, which I also really enjoyed.
I really like your site and it gives me somehting to look forward to every day.
Thanks and keep it up, Steve
simply beautiful!! love the angles and the dark light contrasts..once again, amazing!
What a good surprise when I opened your page and saw this photo.
Great shot(s) I'm from Florence and this is a relly good picture,nice light, with also a very good post prosessing though(mix of 2 shots??).
I love this image. I like the converging architectural lines at the top and the everyday people walking at the bottom. Fantastic shot!
I love the perspective. Best of all, I love how you captured those people's moments, each person tells a chapter and you've managed to capture the story.
My days...that 10-22 is just ridiculous...Love this Shot!
Wow. I can't believe how hot that is. It's totally turning me on!
Very interesting perspective. On the ground, the street seems quite wide while the distance between the edges of the roofs seems much much narrower, as if someone could jump from one roof to another.
great shoot! :)
love it... awesome perspective
wonderful, for me it is one of your best photos. it is very simple but so symetric, deep and sharp.
Beautiful, sharp, clean, crisp photogrpahy. Great image.
Wonderful angles! Almost a visual illusion
I feel the motion in the photo! Amazing. Are you having a photo show in NY anytime soon?
Nice angles. Thanks Sam :)
This is really wonderful. You really are a master of the street/city scapes.
This is a stunning photography. Great perspective and colours, and a very interesting scene. Well done!
Hey! I was standing right there just last week! Great shot Sam, amazing perspective. I certainly didn't come away with such a photo!
the colours are really viabrant
i like how dynamic the one point perspective is
very nice shot (:
this photo makes me feel like an ant
i love this picture. i have one from the other direction that i took when i was there. i love florence...and i really just like this picture a lot. makes me want to go back!
i'm in architecture school and i love your architectural shots-- this one especially b/c we're doing one point perspective in drawing and it's ungodly boring-- but you take it to a new level of interest. thanks for the inspiration!
nice line play here with lovely perspective.
That really looks like /Art/.
Just recently acquired a Canon 10-22, as this shot clearly illustrates it's worth every penny!
