These two elderly people are taking care of their grandson and are caring to let the child take a look from this lovely window and have a view of the main square in Verona.
So beautiful architecture and structure of these two windows.

Hi Francis.

No doubt they would have been pleasing with this capture of them. I like the window idea and the snip of their life holding the grandchild. Pleasing tones and shapes contrasting so well, tfs

stv ;o))

Ciao Francis, lovely composition with beautiful windows, nice scene in one open, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Francis
Indeed there is a lot of work in these windows,beautifully carved
Like the old pink on the wall...and nice to see people in their
daily life acton

Bom dia Francis,
Happy capture. In a single moment you brought us a sky reflected in the windows and on the other a sweet family moment, with the best features of a candid camera.
All in a high quality photo.
Best regards.

Hello Francis,as Steve suggests, the couple would have been delighted with this 'moment in time'; they look happy!
I was looking for a reflection in the glass of the other window,but thinking about it, a reflection would have distracted us from the family.So that little bit of sky was just enough.
Well observed.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis, Lovely POV and subject. The colors are natural and focus sharp. IMHO the image is slightly tilted to the left, but it is still awesome. TFS

HI Francis, you captured this scene perfectly, so that there lives "life" in this photo.I love the architecture of these windows.. Very well composed.
Regards Rose

From what I can see it does look like a beautiful architecture. I wonder how old the building is. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

My first thought: Romeo and Juliet in Verona. But there are grandparents with their grandson, nice scene

Hello Francis,

A view through the window is looking nice. It feels like there's a couple and a young boy giving his grand parents a good time. Nice atmosphere and lovely mood. A beautiful snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hi, Francis. Nice capture of this lovely daily scene. Well seen and presented. Composition, colors and sharpness all balanced to give this photo a unique look. Cheers.

Hi Francis,
Nice architecture of those old windows,
great details and point of view,
Nice daily life scene in Verone,
Nicely taken and Very neat work..

A well seen shot with super details and clarity, Francis!
Good sharpness with amazing daily life moment you have caught in here.
Light and exposure are well handled.
Good job!


What first caught my eye was the dirty colour of the wall, then the details of the windows and finally the human presence. I thought the photo was exposed and composed well, except the architecture at the top prevents perfect symmetry (which I like). I did find it slightly distracting that the windows arenot parallel to each other, and the white line at the top isn't level. But I think this is a necessary compromise.
