i can't believe how well the architechture fits the frame size
Woooowww...You made my day! Thanks Sam...
OMG!!! this is an absolutely amazing perspective!!! WOWW!!!!
I haven't commented in a while but this one really blows my mind. it's the kind of shot that introduces yet a new perspective that you've captured.
Great shot! Perspective is one of my favorite devices in photography. Were you lying on your back? Keep it up!
C'est une superbe cité qu'il faut impérativement visiter… Mais beaucoup de touristes s'arrêtent à Florence et négligent Sienne…
Tant pis pour eux… D'autant qu'à Sienne, on se balade à pied…! Pas de voitures et du coup, c'est idéal pour la découverte… Superbe Photo…!
This is beautiful. Wow. Fantastic.
Holy mexican jumpin bean, Batman!
That's an amazing shot, especially without recourse to a panorama application... kudos.
Great!. beautifull perspective and a very good work with the lightt and shadows.
oooh... very nice.
any way to get a high res for my wallpaper?
wow... natural framing you achieved here is awesome!
This is awesome! The symmetry is just perfect, stunning colors and a perfect shot.
I just love Siena
...and the same when it comes to your photoblog :)
That is an unbelieveable amazing photo. How in the world did you get it so perfect?
Amazing angle. You're right. Seems like Escher. Very nice shot.
WOW!!! The precision is perfect. Nice work Sam
Great shot. Love the symmetry. I really must get used to looking up!
This is really good. I can clearly see the reference to M. C. Escher's work. One of the mos interesting parts of this photo is the natural frame made by the building architecture.
Oh wow. Incredibly geometric. You even managed to get the shadow of the sun right!
And the tower just adds that extra it of ... je ne sais quoi!
That's just a brilliant photo. Great composition, the symmetry and straight lines are great.
Sam, this is a breathtaking shot.
I love it!!!
I guess that I'll be one of the first to request a wallpaper version of it.
Wow your best photo in some time. I like the double framing.
This is what Sam Javanrouh is all about! Welcome back Sam. This is the sort of photo iv been waiting for! Nice!
Nice perspective, MC Escher has lived an part of his live in Italy(florence). So there are influences to see in his work.
nice architecture and GREAT composition.
I've been visiting your page for quite some time. And this is really a nice one!
Very cool photo!!! Great architecture.
Impressive, never seen anything quite like this before!
Must have been a neck breaking shoot =)
Nice photograph as usual !
Ah yes! Escher! For sure. As an artist you can well appreciate his amazing perceptions.
This is a nice catch, Sam.
This is the most awesome shot I have seen recently!
A winner, Sam.. wow! Yes, before I even readd your comment I thought: "Escher"!
Escher lived in Italy for a while, you will not be surprised to hear.
this hurts my eyes. that's a lot of perspective.
Excellent perspective! The shapes and strong features are nicely composed.
Wow, it stopped time for me. An absolute treat for the eye, especially at 7:30 in the morning.
wow! what a wonderful shot! Siena is a beatiful city
Wicked photo! I like the texture, colours, and how your alignment is always perfect! I keep trying to take pictures like this but it never seems to work out...
I've been following your photoblog for a month or so, and greatly enjoying it.
I think that the last two photos are the best two I've seen on here, with the possible exception of the corner building looking up, with telephone wires...
Wonderful, wonderful! Could you post the original, out of the camera, so we can see how much straightening you did?
It kind of looks like being inside a puzzle. A great shot, as well as yesterdays.
Mind Blowing !!!!!
Looks like a postcard/painting.
Great job Sam!
Killer shot - perfect perspective.
Great shot but some very noticeable pincushioning from your 10-22 lens at the short end and at the wide aperture. Did you take the same pic with the lens stopped down further? If so I'd be curious to compare the results
Keep it up
That's amazing. First I thought there was made a border around the picture afterwards, but it's just the image. So I wonder if it is a crop?
I like it very much!
Wow. This one is too beautiful! I've looked at all of the DDOI images you've posted and this is one of my favorites.
Wow! Fantastic perspective!
What a fantastic shot! Very good job on this. The framing and perspective really give the feeling of height. I love it!!!
Nice perspective! :o This would be a nice Desktop
I too was totally thinking M.C. Escher before I read your comment.
Did you use a tripod to center the FOV or did you crop the photo afterwards?
very nice! I too thought of Escher when I first saw this. I now need to decide if "little red bottle" or this one is my favorite.
WOW this is an incredible shot!! congratulations!
Wonderful ! I love the blue tones of the sky. I'm pretty sure you used a polarizer, could you confirm us that ? Thanks and "bravo" again !
Very cool, seems like a puzzle missing its last piece.
Probably Escher was inspired there:)
This is annoyingly good. There's the perspective, sure, but the way your shadows and sunlight balance - neither too bright nor too dark - is hard to get, and hard to look natural. Bullseye, nicely done.
very cool. perfect cropping. makes me kinda dizzy looking at it. definitely a favorite of mine.
what a fantastic shot! Feels like i'm looking down at the sky - if that makes sense ;)
Absolutely awesome! Great, great shot!
OMG, this one is amazing. Your best shot in some time. WOW! Wallpaper picts please!?
Amazing shot Sam!
The architecture is amazing, too!
"amazing" ain't enough...
Awesome shot Sam! I tried this in a rotunda once but it didn't come out near as good. The colors in this one are great together.
this is damn nice. very damn nice
this is great photo. great optical illusion, it feels like i'm flying & falling at the same time!!
wow, perfect shot ! beautiful and very cool !
This is really terrific. Perfectly framed and exposed.
Amazing shot. Your photos are consistently excellent but this is a breath-taker...
i feel dizzy looking at this
Just one word:
Wallpaper size in 1280*1024 available? Would be marvellous!
DAMN this is great, I really like the pics taken with the 10-22
I almost get dizzy wathing this image
Brilliant! The perspective is amazing....
Great shot - any chance of a wallpaper-sized version?
It's amazing dude .... well done!
Greetings from Chile
OMG ! Just amazing. wow !!!
Stunning picture, Sam! That's the Palazzo Publico and Torre del Mangia. I lost my camera case there twelve years ago. (Minolta SLR if any one found it?) Inside is the famous equestrian portrait of Guidoriccio da Settignano by Simone Martini. Magnifico! Thanks for the memories.
absolutely incredible...by far one of the best shots on your photo blog. thanks
i would love to have it on my desktop. :)
Wow... This is absolutely beautiful! excellent shot!!! (:
great! it's one of the most beautiful pics which i have seen in your blog.
Wow, that's really somthing Sam. Thanks :)
The border that the lip of the building creates is fantastic. You've really outdone yourself with this one :o)
Every once in awhile you post a picture that reinforces the fact that you are one of the best photographers around! It's great to see all these amazing places through your eyes.
WOWWWW!!!!!!!!DAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL.DAT MADE MY DAY!!!!!!!ALSO PUT A SMILLE ON MY FACE:)
this is just breathtaking. the symmetry, texture, colors, alignment are perfect. fabulous job!
Probably my favourite picture you've ever done.
This photo is dizzying! Nice one.
Wow. Amazing upward shot. Makes me feel like that frog down the well.
Stunning shot. This could easily be a best selling postcard. =)
you have a great eye and talent!! this is just too amazing to just leave without saying so. :D
amazing. its mind blowing.
although after looking at it for a few minutes it made my head hurt. >_>
Why are your photos so damn brillant?? You are so talented!!!!!!!!
looks like a silicon chip in the midst of the hazy motherboard circuitry.
I really thought that it couldn't get any better than yesterday's incredible shot... but today I'm practically leaning into my monitor, saying 'Wow!' out loud over and over... How do you DO that?!
Great architecture, amazing pic...
How did u do diz Sam? lying down der ?
This is an absolutely fabulous framing job! Wow, is all I can say. Fascinating!
Wow, excellent shot! wonderful perspective and great use of wide angle.
This is a marvellous shot. So far, I think no one can beat you with this kind of angle and perspective.
Wow - this is fantastic. The perspective sucks you in and has an almost dizzying effect.
Wow - this is a great architectural, travel and artistic image. The symmetry is wonderful and the leading lines just mesmerise the eyes. A wonderful shot.
I like how it feats in the picture. Is it me or does it seem that the top wall is bending a little? I like the tower and the fact that the sky is darker on the left side.
A brilliant shot! Thanks for sharing! :-D
You made my head snap back with this shot! LOL
All I can say is WOW! This is such an awesome shot!
I absolutely love your photography; and find it so inspiring. Thank you for yet another amazing shot!
Perfect symetry. I just love it. And isn't Siena the greatest city? So beautiful. If you ever go back find the American Cafe - the guy sings and plays guitar to old Elvis songs and such. It's so funny with the heavy Italian accent.
Oh Man........ ya done good!
Waw. That blew me off. Just wanna eat my camera and forget about photography after seeing that.
una perspectiva impresionante ,maravillosa.
I have almost the exact same picture. Great minds think alike I suppose haha.
