What a wonderful scene you have captured here, Jean!
Light is fantastic and so is the sky.
Exposure is well kept and details of the facade of these historical buildings are nicely shown.
A good shot!
Have a nice weekend.

Hi Jean, I admire the capture of this ancient gate and the towers - but honestly - I would love it without the crowd of people. beautiful light, lots of details and a nice cloudy sky.
Thanks for sharing - kind regards Monika

Yes, I have been here, as has may thousands of tourists any given year. It is a lovely little hill top town, feels as if you are in a very strange and beautiful place because of the so well preserved medieval architecture. Nice capture, would have helped to have less people, but you can not help that.

Good wide angle shot in which you have managed your verticals very nicely. The flow of the crowd leads us inward towards the arch. Nice pov and good details.

A beautiful arched entrance to this Italian town of San Gimignano with its Renaissance Architecture. Great details on the walls and facade and of the fourteen dominating towers of the city. I like the action of the people walking towards and from the gate.
Perfect lighting and an agreeable POV.

This is quite an amazing capture.
You give the senese of uneasiness in attacking this fortified building with the angle you use. The walls up high and the entrance like a cauldron of despire for those trying to entry.
I was loosing myself in history then, sorry....... lol
Truthfully, you show the incline so well, the way people lean as they climb. Great rustic colours and sharpness of detail plus very good notes. tfs

Ancient architectures are more durable and some are more beautiful than modern buildings, I can see why tourist would flock to stone skyscraper. Nice to have the people for sense of proportion. Well done, tfs.

the towers of San Gimignano are unique and photographic. here you manage to capture the ambiance of the place with a different approach to this tourist attraction. nice consideration with the crowd. well done.
