[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The cityscape of Bologna is enriched by elegant and extensive arcades (or porticos), for which the city is famous. In total, there are some 38 kilometres of arcades in the city’s historical center and over 45 km in the city proper. The arcades make it possible to walk for long distances sheltered from rain, snow, or hot summer sun.

The photo was taken on June 2010.

Hi Lili...
Beautiful geometry symmetry...
Nice light, presentation...

Hello Lili

A perfect capture here. I like the trailing of the supports. very well done on the pov


Hi Lili:'
Simply beautiful...
well seen & captured...
both your lighting & composition are very well balanced...
Good notes!

A wonderful example of the repeating patterns of the architecture creating a fine sense of perspective. I love how the curve of the corridor denies a focal image to the viewer, adding a sense of mystery to the shot.
Well done; a fine pov.

Warm regards,
Bev :-)

A very neat picture indeed and nice note. It is interesting to see you call them arcades, it is not what I would call them at all. I'm not sure what I would call them other than covered walkways. A very beautiful place though I should visit sometime. Thanks!

Hi Lili,

This is a wonderful photo. nice POV with good exposure, details and very well balanced.

Best regards and TFS,

Jolie perspective avec un bel alignement de ces somptueuses colonnes et belle brillance sur le sol que je pense être en marbre.J'ai fait un WS pour cloner la porte en métal.Catherine
