Gualtieri, today.
Camera: K50 
Posted By: flaviopetrone, 11-16-2014, 11:23 AM

These pictures were taken with two different lenses (DA 18/55 AL WR, A 50mm 1.7), in Gualtieri, a little city just on the side of the Po river.

Any kind of opinion and critique is always very welcome!

To be honest, I'm not sure.

In the past was a tradition, for sure in the south of Italy, to leave some holes in the wall while building a new house, to give a den to the birds. I don't know if it is the same reason or not. This building is very old...

I like that tradition. I think the holes are explained.

Unfortunately with the new brick-less buildings they stopped to do so... It was nice, now everything is about the look.

A very nice set. I really like the first one although i might had gone closer woth a vertical shot. But anyway a great picture. Also no.3 is spot on.

Yes, I always use the landscape orientation, I don't feel very comfortable with the portrait... But I need to start to use it, sometimes it is the best choice!

Phenomenal series! Number one is my favorite. There is something about city arches. They lead into other worlds.
