Piazza Grande, Arezzo, Toscana.

Although I prefer taking night shots, I decided to show this photo anyway. It was taken at 14:44', on the way to Florence. It is not the best time to take photos, because the tight at this time of day is usually to strong.

Arezzo is a historical town, that gave me the feeling I had travel back in time.

In my WS you can see the same shot in "sepia".

Arezzo is one of my favourite cites in Italy. It's good to see, that the main square is still in good condition. (I been there ten years ago.) You made a good composition, the details are fine both in light and shade, other values: natural colours and excellent sharpness. Precise job!

Hello Liliana.
This piazza reminds me a little of Siena, although a different shape. It's the slant of the tiles, I think. Apart from the rather pale sky, I like the lines of the buildings and the figures in the large space. It looks hot. I just looked at the WS; it is one way of dealing with a washed out sky but I think I prefer this version. I would say that in the bright light it is a good exposure.

buna lili
o vara plina pentru tine,superbe locuri ai vizitat :) devin geloasa :)
deosebita imagine .calitate deosebita
pe curind

Hi Lili,

I hope you liked this italian square, it's one of my favourites.
Nice image, I only think it's a little weak in exposure, as the church is a little dark and the people/building a little too overexposed.



Hello Liliana,
I like your images taken of night, but I like the images of day too. This one very is successful. Perhaps that a small correction of slope and prospect was necessary. But it does not remove anything with the beauty, the interest and the quality of this image. Spend a good day.

so, you really CAN take photos at daylight, liliana! :-) this one turned out great, well composed with a nice pov.
the light was very harsh, but you managed that ok - for that i like the sepia-version even a little bit more.
take care & best wishes, thor.

Hello Lili,
Even with strong light but captured well with good exposure and focus!
good pov with sharpness, clarity, good colour and so much details for us to enjoy!
well done and thanks for sharing

Ciao Lili, bella cartolina da Arezo, mi piacciono molto questi POV dal basso, splendida luce e ottimi colori, brava, ciao Silvio

Hi Lili,
Beautiful square. I've always liked old Italian architecture. Steeply sloped pavement adds interest here and makes lines look a bit twisted.
Midday light is rather harsh though.

Interesting architectural image. It's not easy to deal with all the lines and angles which get distorted both by perspective and the lens. Your task was made even more difficult as the ground also slopes. Maybe it just needs a little straightening so the central verticals are properly vertical. I think you managed the difficult exposure well.

Ola Liliana,
Bonita praça , gostei do angulo de visão , mais baixo que a praça , a arquitectura das casas e muito bonita , as pessoas na foto ficaram muito bem ,gostei das cores, parabens!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

You could have almost meet another TE member that were in toscania this summer : inasiajones, but he was later that you as i check the time of shoot.
Good one, perhaps a little too much high tones, marvelous italian architecture.

Bonjour Liliana
très joli cadrage de cette place. Tu as bénéficié d'une belle lumière qui permet de montrer de nombreux détails. Bravo, beau travail.

Hi Lili,
That's true you show more night shots, but the architecture to be seen here is very nice, although the midday light is quite harsh.
Have a nice day,

Hola Liliana,
Estupenda luz y gran nitidez en esta toma.
la plaza parece muy bonita con sus elegantes soportales y los edificios de bella arquitectura.
Buen trabajo

Bonsoir, mon amie Liliana,
Il n'est pas toujours facile de réaliser des photographies au bon moment. Malgré la lumière forte, le résultat est très bon et nous montre un bel exemple de l'architecture italienne. J'aime bien l'effet sépia qui donne à la composition un caractère "carte postale ancienne".
Très bien fait.

Hi Liliana. not the best time but the picture is lovely. I remember clearly that square and it is a pleasure see it again.

Rgs, Oscar

Hi Liliana,
Woooooooowwwwww, the shapness and details, especially on the left side of the building is wonderful. The light is very bright but there is a special color to it. No part is overexposed, instead, it gives the photo a superb feel.
Very nice.
Best regards. Salvator.
PS. Your ws is very nice, much better than mine. Thanks.

Really a nice picture, colour and POV.

Hola Liliana.
Beautiful architecture captured in your wonderful daily life shot, despite the hour that was taken it is a very good shot. Your POV is good plus sharpness and colors contrast. The presence of the people add a lot to your photo.
Well done.

hi liliana,
i like very much your photo,especially the way u framed it and the nice point of view!it seem a very nice square..
kind regards

Hello Liliana,

I am very happy to see this wonderful shot of Arezzo. The piazza reminds me somewhat of the one in Sienna, but I have not seen it personally. On the road connecting Arezzo and Florence, I wonder if you came across the bridge used by Leonardo in the scene behind the Mona Lisa. In my Intro page, I wrote "I have always had an abiding passion for photography. In doing a GOOGLE search for Ponte Buriano, the bridge Leonardo da Vinci had used in the Portrait of Mona Lisa."

Warm regards,


Ciao Liliana,
I am so envy! During my Easter trip in Arezzo it was raining so heavy that I was not able to see this wonderful place. Beautiful point of view and harsh lighting well managed. Congratulations, Dario.

Hi Liliana.

Nice composition and also nice light and colours for this photo. The tilt square, the buildings and the people are really worth for this picture.

Well done.
