The 17th century church of San Frediano with its unfinished façade is the main feature of this piazza that opens into the River Arno.

A noble Baroque building with a bright interior, it is decorated with pleasant stucco work and marble altars.

The dome was painted with frescoes by the Florentine Baroque painter Anton Domenico Gabbiani. As you go out of the church, you will see on the left the granary which the Grand Duke Cosimo III had built in 1695 to store the city's grain.(*)

Hi Jose
This photo is of an extraordinary beauty, for the composition of the image, for the colors that reflect on the water and for the good management of the light.

boa noite Jose',
what a nocturnal view!! so crisp, so clear, so black!
I know it's not really in tune with the church theme, but this black sky and this air so clear made me start singing "because the night - belongs to lovers / because the night - belongs to us"...
I love the lights - they look like perfect stars...

Ola Jose:
a fotografia tem uma definicao excelente,com uns maravilhosos reflexos.
bem conseguido.
parabens pelo bom tralbalho.

Hi Jose, A fine perspective, looking along the river on this angle. The image is very sharp, showing tripod is very useful in this situation in low light. The reflections came out well. TFS Murray.
PS I have a monopod but always forget to take it along.

Ola Jose!

Espectacular foto por terras de Italia... Adoro fotos nocturnas e esta está muito boa, os reflexos na agua as luzes...


Olà Jose.

Beautiful POV with very nice light. Great night shot with no perceptible noise; probably because of the short time of exposistion.
