Italy Photo -- Pretty Impressive

I have been so busy catching up, after getting back from Italy just over two weeks ago, that I have not had time to go through many of my photos. This was a hard building to photograph. There was another building across the street and it was of such gargantuan size that it was difficult to get far enough away to get it all in. To complicate matters, there were a zillion pedestrians and construction taking place in front of it. Therefore, the best way to take the shot was up high. Even if it is a limited view, it is pretty amazing architecture. This is the main duomo in the ancient city of Siena. And, of course, compared to St Peter's, at the Vatican, this is ho-hum.

hello, Steven,

thanks for sharing. What a beautiful  Architecture! I love Italy. We have traveled through the whole Europe, and Italy is one our favorite countries. I hope you had a great vacation.

Get smaller lense.  Get smaller lense.  I have told my camera that many times!  Great photo though, and eliminating the pedestrian traffic.
