Very interesting architectural capture, Dee!
I think the clouds are a bit too bright though...seems to draw the attention from the building a bit!

I actually purposefully kept that shot for the fact that, even though the clouds are bright and it seemed a sunshiney day, the duomo still looks dark and heavy and creepy. A La Gothic, KWIM? It would never work for a "normal" pic, but I wanted something that was just this side of surreal. This was part of my "dark period". LOL.

But your point is very valid. Katrina, thank you so much for keeping an eye on my gallery! Your input is invaluable. #2070530

Now that you explain it, I can see that side of it too! ; )

Very cool... I'm partial to cathedrals, and the detail on the facade of this one is amazing! Great subject for a b/w, IMHO! #2135411

The duomo does look very dark and threatening against that sky. I am glad I read all the comments as I was going to say that I did not like it in black and white as it seems a shame to hide all the detail in the colour. But now I see where you are coming from Dee!!! #2138990

Thank you, Kate. Yeah, I like the dark stuff every so often. Not always one for the conventional beauty. Luckily they are actually few and far between. I just have several hundred shots of the Duomo, and it really leant itself to the shadows (as did the weather!). #2139148

I too have a ton of shots of the Duomo and of Florence but none any good. I took them with my first little digital and only used the lowest setting in order to squeeze as many pics as I could onto the card which was so expensive way back then in 2001. #2139229
