When I look at the photo the sky jumps out at me, but other than that, there isn't any real focus it seems to me. If the building had some color/contrast, and 'popped' like the sky does then it would be a better photo IMO. Or you could try a different angle on the building (maybe getting closer to it and focusing on some aspect of the architecture). The people in front are kind of distracting.
thanks campbell glad you like it...KamaKazzy thanks too....doenoe yep really the square needs to empty or people running...perhaps I should have...ah never mind. ranmyaku fair comment, I did try and work on the buildings more but without doing a heap of PS work it's not going to go there....this scene would have been a good candidate for HDR, next time....thanks joey.
Of the two conversions, I love the red. It is even more apocalyptic than the yellow. The sky IS the thing that rendered this view to your attempts of creating this "apocalyptic scene", I would think?
The distortion is quite much here with the wide, wide angle, but then this scene is LARGE and really wide ... I created (with prints and sellotape!!!) my first panorama photo out of four pics taken of this very square once ... and now here it looks like people might well use it as a skating bowl ... cool effect.
Corrina my g/f (who is Italian) thinks this is the most beautiful square she has visited and in a way it's a shame to distort it so lol, I would have liked to be able to access that tower to get some pics, now that would look cool....cindy that was my thought too, blissfull ignorance then wham heh heh....chiller thanks man....Trenton thank you too.
