The gardens of Villa Rufolo, Ravello

Villa Rufolo was built between the XI, and the XIII century, when Ravello was founded by Roman aristocrats. The Villa Rufolo is a standing example of the Arabian style architecture that was typical in the south of Italy during the Norman domination.

The beautiful gardens and the view of Villa Rufolo, that have bewitched so many travelers, were also the source of inspiration for the famous Richard Wagner, who used his experiences from the Villa to compose his “Parsifal”.

Villa Rufolo is also mentioned in a famous work of Italian ancient literature, the "Decameron", by Giovanni Boccaccio.

The view from Villa Rufolo's terrace is a must see in Ravello

Hi Tsilla,
A nice geometrical composition with floral islets in a public garden. Very nice colors and all sorts of patterns. A great beach slash in the BG. The POV is ideal for this sort of shot.
Good management in lighting and nice play with shadows.
Very nicely presented.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Tsilla,
A beautiful shot of this beautiful garden,the shot is taken from a good POV where you could cover the FG details very well while the 1/3 framing also works beautiful,the BG sea with mountain makes a good contrast composition with FG.
Best Wishes

The point of view is terrific Tsilla , having been there myself it is a really cute place , you left enough of the sea there in the top third of your composition to give the viewer a sensation of height/depth as it creates a nice perspective to the flat even foreground composed of the exquisite gardens , could not be composed much better i believe ,i have a similar shot in my archives , thanks for sharing and for the note,

Hi Tsilla,
this is a wonderful garden, I love the different forms and colours.
Your POV is excellent, pretty place, sunny day, what will you have more ...

I love the POV you have managed to get in this colorful shot from a well decorated garden, Tsilla!

The sharpness is great and a higher POV works so well here. The colors are original and management of light is well managed. Well done!

Best greetings,

Hi, Tsilla. The POV of the garden in the foreground and the mediterranean sea in the background has made this a unique photo with both perspective and composition. Colorful neatly layed garden and creative framing further embellishes it. Cheers.

Hi Tsilla
Jolie composition avec un beau graphisme sur ces jardins et beau BG ace cette mer en contre-bas.Bravo!Catherine

Hello Tsilla,

Little part of the sea and town in the background are bonus plus to your composition.

Perfectly shown colors.
