Approach to Ponte Vecchio

The Ponte Vecchio is a medieval stone bridge over the Arno River, in Florence, Italy. It has a lot of shops built right on it, mostly jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.

I like the way that you framed this Ayush... there is nothing i like more that to be able to shoot something that is older than Canada....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thanks Peter, I haven't shot much lately, so been throwing back from the archives.
A truly wonderful picture. The color is perfect.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Frances, it was a beautiful day
I just love the whole image plus the treatment, but in particular the picnic scene of the last days on the right. smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Juan smile
Very nicely capture Ayush. I love the tones!
Ayush Basu: Thank you Richard, it was a lovely day so my work was cut out.
This rates as one of the best pictures I have ever seen of this bridge Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for that comment, Brian. I am pleased you think so.
Very nice capture Ayush - a bit of subtle tone mapping at play?
Ayush Basu: Nothing much escapes your observation, does it smile You are right, the sunshine in the late afternoon was creating stark highlights and rather dark shadows. The treatment helped to bring out more of the scene.

What a great bridge! I can only imagine what it took to build it. I like that you included the people in the foreground. They add interest and scale to the scene.

Ayush Basu: Thank you for your comment Sharon. The picnickers definitely chose a brilliant spot to enjoy the afternoon.
I've heard so much about this bridge, one day I want to see it for myself!
Ayush Basu: It could be your resolution this year smile
Great shot Ayush! My Ponte Vecchio photos will be upcoming... our sky was gray and dreary however- yours is much more lovely!
