The most popular view from Piazzale Michelangelo.

Florence (italian-Firenze) is the capital city of the region of Tuscany and lies on the Arno River.A center of medieval European trade and finance, the city is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and was long ruled by the Medici family. Florence is also famous for its magnificent art and architecture. It is said that, of the 1,000 most important European artists of the second millennium, 350 lived or worked in Florence. The city has also been called the Athens of the Middle Ages.

On the left side you can see - One of the bridges in particular stands out as being unique — The Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge), whose most striking feature is the multitude of shops built upon its edges, held up by stilts.First constructed by the Etruscans in ancient times, this bridge is the only one in the city to have survived World War II intact.

In the middle - Heart of the city is Piazza della Signoria where is located Palazzo Vecchio (the Old Palace)and The Uffizi ("offices")where is one of the finest art galleries in the world.

On the right site - The best-known site and crowning architectural jewel of Florence is the domed cathedral of the city, Santa Maria del Fiore, known as The Duomo. The magnificent dome was built by Filippo Brunelleschi. The nearby Campanile tower (partly designed by Giotto) and the Baptistery buildings are also highlights.

I posted workshop, there is the shot without frame for a larger view (I can´t post LP).

Thanks for any words, enjoy the day!

What a nice shot. Good details!
i like the colours and composition
well done. Carme

HI Jikta,
Indeed a beutiful image from Firenze. I've never been there myself, but I wish one day i can also see all those wonderful sites.
Your photo is indeed a busy one. Loads of roofs, loads of things to see.
It seems like a panorama to me, so if I'm correct, I would like to see a larger version of it. It's worthy, since you show so much.
If I'm not correct and this is not a panorama. I would suggest you ditch the frame and use all the space with your image. Don't get me wrong, frame is nice, but for such a busy image, larger area is better.

Great work and TFS!

take care, Stef :))

Ahoj Jitko,
krásná fotka, krásný město. Budu se tam někdy muset podívat. Líbí se mi rozvržení fotky, ostrost i mraky nad městem.
To je zajímavý, jak člověk rád dělá úplně něco jinýho než by zrovna měl :-)
Pěkného dne přeje

Beatiful landscape of this great city, not far from my home :-)

Perfect cut.

Congrats, Jitka and TFS.


Hi Jitka,
I agree with about Florence. It's beautiful and your composition excellent.
I like this POV, details and colours. Very well managed the light and framed the picture.
TFs and greetings

Saludos Jitka

imagen digna de postal te felicito


very nice cityscape Jitka. Good use of the river to encourage the eye to wander throughout the frame.

Ahoj nevernice:-) I hope you love Czech as much as Florence.
But I understand to you. This town is very romantic. I was there 4 years ago and I am sure I will have to go there again (and again)...
I know you lost small part of your heart in Florence. But however it could hurt, you would know that Florence is waiting for you - everytime you would have chance to go there.
Glad to see this beautiful panorama.
Have a good day:-)

What I really like here is the wide format you used, Jitka. The framing works too, the multilingual title makes it look like a postcard. Couldn't you crop off a bit of the fg and of the sky to get to the 1:2,5 ratio?
Anyway, the ws version is nice too. Haven't been to Firenze yet, but it's on my list... as is Venice!

Wonderful presentation. Beautiful colours. Very good quality of the photograph. I'm at a loss for words to express my admiration. Your photograph is reminding me Canaletto images. (translator)

this is great "postcard-like" shot and very educational. You caught nice sunny day and the sky is pretty dramatic too.
I'd fly there, yes.
