Carousel, Piazza della Repubblica, Florence

    Newer Older

    A carousel on the Piazza della Repubblica in Florence's old city.

    I had spotted this scene earlier, in the daytime, and determined I needed to go back at night to catch the swirling carousel lights. I wish people had done a little more moving and a little less standing around (since they're not perfectly still, they just look blurry instead of either still or in motion), but I like the cluster of people in the corner, who provide a little visual balance.

    Fiorentino per Passione, and 10 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      This photo is, of course, fantastic. But I do also have to give you extra credit for visualizing the scene with people in motion. Well conceived indeed....

      Motion and colors are real nice, but for me this image is all abou depth. Nicely done.

      I like it cause it´s crooked and round at the same time.

      This looks like flying saucer that landed in the middel of classic Florence street scene.

      Thanks, everyone. I'm proud of this one.

      I go back and forth on that aspect. The wide-angle distortion definitely adds something interesting here. It depends on what moment you ask me whether I think it's good-interesting or distracting-interesting.
