    I like them. I would have liked to see the first one in colour.

    wow!
    Welcome to the forum! I see you are already a master at the art!
    I love each of these, esp. the DoF of the first and second pictures.
    I also like the effect of Sepia on these... What kind of camera do you use?

    Thanks for sharing! I hope to see more of your work!:)

    the first shot is excellent! i like how you can sort of see his drawing... and with the DOF, the bridge/background almost looks like a drawing in itself... very good stuff, and welcome to the site :)

    Thanks Guys,
    LittleMan, I shot the top image with a nikon5000 P&S, and the mimes were through a canon elan7e on ilford hp5 film.
    Canoncan, here is the river image in color.

    I bow to your expertise, the b&w is a far better choice. I humbly refrain from suggesting otherwise. Great shots!!

    These images are very timeless. I like, particularly the first one as it makes me want to be the guy in it. He even has a striped shirt, gotta love it.

    My thoughts exactly!!!

    Though I've never been to Florence, I would assume what we see in the first photo is an often photographed motif. You, however, Allan, manage to make it unique, non-cliché, very atmospheric, and, as Jess said: timeless.

    Your other two photos give us a glimpse of the individuality or uniqueness (whichever is the more appropriate word here) your photo series from your trip to Florence must have!

    Yes, you are a master of your art and know how to bring atmosphere into your photos.:hail:
