[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is postcard of Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.

Most of the major tourist sights in Florence are within easy walking distance of each other. It is possible to walk from one end of the historic center of Florence to the other - North-South or East-West in a half hour. Walking is not only an easy way to get around, it also offers the chance to 'take in' much more of the city life. Be warned though, that electric motor scooters are small enough to fit where cars cannot. They are silent but quick and in the summer they often travel into the plazas. Some of the streets in central Florence are closed to traffic. Many more are simply too narrow for buses to get through. Therefore, bus and car tours are not recommended. This is a very small, very compact city that really needs to be seen by foot. And, of course, if you need to, you can always buy a new pair of shoes in Florence!

Hi Francis.

Pleasing height to this view showing much interest, and conrasting shapes and colour. The tower to the right acts as a good focal point, the river helps lead the eye. tfs

Hi Francis,
I know where you took this from - Piazza Michelangelo, across the river. Florence has to be one of my favourite cities that I have visited. amount of history packed into the small space is simply amazing.

Hi Francis...beautiful shot of Florence...excellent perspective, tones and colors. Very nice work.


You caught a fantastic view of the city of Florence, and indeed this picture could potentially be a postcard, Francis!

The details you managed to fetch in here are praiseworthy, and light and exposure are well done.
Sharpness and clarity are nicely done, and DOF is excellent.
Good work!

Kind regards,
