square by someguycalledmark square by someguycalledmark
Taken from the top of the Campanile di San Marco in Venice. The view from the top was breathtaking. This is looking down into St. Mark's Square.

While we were up in the tower the bells started to toll while we were standing about 2 feet below them. Loud would be an understatement.

EDIT: WOW, a DD! :D Thank you so much to everyone for commenting and your favourites. I really appreciate it, especially on a photograph I myself love so much :)

this work is so appealing not only for the intersting perspective (full of curious details such as the multiple pidgeons, the patterns on the floor or the colorful umbrella) but also because of the clever tones and contrasts (that bluish atmosphere gives the photo a beautiful vivid look). congratulations for the DD. :) *

really looks cool :lol:
I immediately also thought about the patterns of the pigeons, like the guy in "A Beautiful Mind"... :o and the people look almost arranged, they just seem to be in the right place and form a pattern
I also like the pattern of white color on the ground and the umbrelle is just great :-)

what a point of view! I love the flock of people and pigeons are fine, they contrast with the floor pattern,
amazes me too the perspective!

You deserved it!
Great job!

The Intircate patterns work so well with the scattering of pidgeons and a little splash of colour there. Really well taken!

I love the pattern on the floor! The birdies and the random placement of the people! Their shadows look so funny! And the colorful umbrella in the midst of all of this! I also like how the floor gets darker and you can start to see the lines of the bricks as it goes towards the edges.

So cool! :+favlove:!

I wish I had the chance to travel to a place like that.

Amazing shot, it would be nothing without the umbrella, but then again I have a wierd thing for umbrellas. :)

The quality and the colors in this shot are amazing. Very worth of the DD. Congrats!
