[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Arno River crosses Florence, where it passes below the Ponte Vecchio. The river flooded this city regularly in historical times, the last occasion being the famous flood of 1966.
The flow rate of the Arno is irregular. It is sometimes described as having a torrent-like behaviour, because it can easily go from almost dry to near-flood in a few days.
A flood on November 4, 1966 collapsed the embankment in Florence, killing at least 40 people and damaging or destroying millions of works of art and rare books. New conservation techniques were inspired by the disaster, but even 40 years later hundreds of works still await restoration.
This canoeist is enjoying a calm river and a lot of sunshine.

Good choice of viewpoint and fortunately the canoeist hasn't broken up too much of the reflection - HDR is subtly done

Dear Francis,

A good shot with amazing sharpness and contrasts!
I like the light and mirror-reflections you have captured against relatively blue sky.
The colors are natural and DOF is well handled.
Good job!

Best regards,

Beautiful reflections enhance this shot. The canooist is a bonus. Nicely composed

Hi Francis,
Very good HDR work, so much detail and tonal variations.Well captured the position of the canoeist paddling into the caught scene.
