Another shot of the Ponte Vecchio, but this time focused on just one small part of it.

"The Ponte Vecchio [Old bridge] is a medieval stone closed-spandrel segmented arch bridge over the River Arno, in Florence.
It is noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common.Butchers initially occupied the shops;the present tenants are jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers.
The bridge spans the river at its narrowest point where it is believed that a bridge was first built."

Thank you for looking.

Nice sharpness, all the parts in the photo is well lighted without anything being overexposed, i like that. Nice one. Thanks for sharing.

Much better close-up of the previous post, although I like the other post also. Good pov and dof with sharp details. I like the lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Love the strong yellow tones of the facade of buildings and their partial reflections on surface of waters, Jean!

Great view with amazing light and exposure, however, the sky tends to OE but it doesn't decline the overall appeal of the picture.
Nice shot!

Kind regards,

Hello Jean

Wonderful reflections in the Arno River & smart choice of a vertical frame. Good sharpness and vibrant color. The small canoe or gondola under the bridge adds interest. Excellent shadow detail too. Tfs!

Ciao Jean, lovely composition with fashinating reflections, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Jean.

Can never tire at seeing this bridge and what it has to offer, evry one posted is so different. I like the portrait style frame to highlight just one arch, the boat underneath and the light and shade across the water becomes more important within the scene, very neat capture Jean.

stv ;o))

I'm glad you have posted another view of this interesting bridge Jean, the architecture is fascinating. It is strange to think that these buildings have always been shops. The colours of the buildings are reflected beautifully in the water and I like the addition of the gondola under the bridge. It adds a touch of mystery.


Hi Jean...excellent shot with great tones and colors. Nice work.


bonjour Jean
