[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bard is a town and comune in the Aosta Valley region of northwestern Italy. It is part of the Monte Rosa Mountain Municipality and has a population of 134.
Bard lies at the centre of a deep, narrow gorge at the head of the Aosta valley. This strategic point has been inhabited since the Neolithic period as archaeologists have found several large engraved stones around the area. It later became a major route between Celtic Gaul and the Roman world of the Italian peninsula.
Today the town has many buildings dating back to the 16th century. These include the Bishop's House and the House of the Sun Dial. The Dora Baltea is also crossed by a Medieval stone bridge.
This is the main street of the town, clearly very ancient.

A wonderful perspective with amazing details from the facade of the historical place, Elena!

Great sharpness and well balanced light though it is not that easy when you get a strong natural light.
The POV gives nice depth in the work.
Well done!

Ciao Elena,
The Gothic style had to dominate architectural design in former roman empire for centuries. And you've beautifully caught this image in nice brilliance. Monochrome and sepia tone is adding nostalgic mood which was required for this shot. An awesome presentation, well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hello Elena -

I love this shot and the use of monochrome. Good composition, POV, DOF and sharpness. Looks like a nice place to stroll down. Well done and thanks for sharing


Hi Elena,Ciao,
Beautiful point of view and details of this lovely old architecture,
good contrast and light with nice naturel colors,
well done.

Dear Elena
Nice shadows and highlights in this old street with good details
The clarity of shot is fabulous, and the sepia tone makes it even older vision

Bonjour Elena,
Du sepia pour nous faire remonter dans le passe de ce pays de l'Italie...
Riche idée, joliment travaillée, avec cette rue pavée qui nous emmène au delà de la porte, pour une visite de ces ruelles...
