    Interesting scene. Love the colors and textures. That bit of the lamp seems a bit distracting to me... probably mainly because it's just close to the people (not that you could have avoided it).

    I also have this overwhelming urge to say "Oh no! THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE SHOT!!! GET THEM OUT!!!" but you have to keep in mind that a lot of photography I take of buildings is for commercial real estate and architecture firms, so I have this tendency to think people in my shots are eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil. So, um, yeah... just ignore me. :lol:

    BTW, as an arch. kind of guy... you could have had a BLAST with that building. It's a disaster. :lol: Lots of neat architectural features pretty much going to pot. Once you get done with those EVIL PEOPLE, zoom in and around and focus in on all the interesting bits, funk up the lines to get some cool angles, look for lines that lead into each other at interesting focal points in the frame, etc. Fun stuff... well, for whackos like me anyway.

    I'm loving this "active topic" thing... makes it super easy to find your posts! :)

    Pretty cool. So what do you think the story is?-

    My best guess;

    "Some second honeymoon Gerd, you lock us out of the room and there's only one chair."

    "Gerd"?
    Why HIM? ;) (That's what my f-i-l is called).
    He doesn't look like a typical "Gerd" to me. The sunglasses don't go well enough with that name ;)

    Nice one of your visit to Italy Corinna, the colours and shapes are very Venice....I think the couple are Italian and she is complaining about the tourists.

    Okay-okay-okay... New scenario;

    Jerri - "Some second honeymoon Ben, you lock us out of the room and there's only one chair."

    Ben - "Yes dear. That's our karma for complaining about the Italians. I must admit, these Italian sunglasses are really nice."
