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.

Posted by Andrew at October 25, 2006 11:18 AM

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!

Posted by jesse warren at October 25, 2006 11:40 AM

These are the kind of scenes you buy a wide angle lense for!

Thats like uber wide, just whoa.

Posted by Pete Carr at October 25, 2006 11:51 AM

Beautiful shot! It has motion in it and it must be the prespective in the photo. What a inspiring location anyway.

Posted by SlicesofLife at October 25, 2006 11:55 AM

wow man....that's really nice shot.

Posted by heju at October 25, 2006 12:45 PM

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?

Posted by Ted at October 25, 2006 01:24 PM

nice shot, have you combined different exposures in this shot ?

Posted by schmonsequences at October 25, 2006 01:43 PM

Hi Sam,
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

Fantamazimbulastic! :-)

What a good surprise when I opened your page and saw this photo.

Posted by nferreira at October 25, 2006 02:20 PM

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??).
Good job!

Posted by fabio at October 25, 2006 02:35 PM

I love this image. I like the converging architectural lines at the top and the everyday people walking at the bottom. Fantastic shot!

Posted by Gabriel McIntosh at October 25, 2006 02:41 PM

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.

Posted by Jenny at October 25, 2006 03:33 PM

My days...that 10-22 is just ridiculous...Love this Shot!

Posted by Philippe at October 25, 2006 03:39 PM

Wow. I can't believe how hot that is. It's totally turning me on!

Posted by Kimberly Way at October 25, 2006 03:40 PM

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.

Posted by vg at October 25, 2006 05:02 PM

great shoot! :)
love it... awesome perspective

Posted by Rui at October 25, 2006 05:35 PM

wonderful, for me it is one of your best photos. it is very simple but so symetric, deep and sharp.
great job.

Posted by sylvainman at October 25, 2006 05:50 PM

Beautiful, sharp, clean, crisp photogrpahy. Great image.

Posted by Michelle Bialowas at October 25, 2006 05:52 PM

Wonderful angles! Almost a visual illusion

Posted by joy at October 25, 2006 05:52 PM

I feel the motion in the photo! Amazing. Are you having a photo show in NY anytime soon?

Posted by Tara at October 25, 2006 07:16 PM

Nice angles. Thanks Sam :)

Posted by annemarie at October 25, 2006 08:08 PM

This is really wonderful. You really are a master of the street/city scapes.

Posted by Laurie at October 25, 2006 09:00 PM

This is a stunning photography. Great perspective and colours, and a very interesting scene. Well done!

Posted by Joyce at October 25, 2006 09:13 PM

Hey! I was standing right there just last week! Great shot Sam, amazing perspective. I certainly didn't come away with such a photo!

Posted by Scott Murdoch at October 25, 2006 09:20 PM

the colours are really viabrant
i like how dynamic the one point perspective is
very nice shot (:

Posted by christine at October 25, 2006 10:52 PM

this photo makes me feel like an ant

Posted by joanne at October 25, 2006 10:59 PM

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!

Posted by tai at October 25, 2006 11:10 PM

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!

Posted by lizd at October 26, 2006 12:48 AM

nice line play here with lovely perspective.

Posted by m a r i n u s at October 26, 2006 06:36 AM

Simply stunning!!

Posted by Kris [PiXistenZ] at October 26, 2006 07:00 AM

That really looks like /Art/.

Posted by Jens Meiert at October 26, 2006 06:11 PM

Just recently acquired a Canon 10-22, as this shot clearly illustrates it's worth every penny!
