Nelle vecchie città medioevali dell'umbria la luce si insinua tra gli stretti vicoli e ne viene proiettata al di fuori con magici effetti, qui siamo in una delle più deliziose cittadine della mie regiome, Montefalco, la ringhiera dell'Umbria, terra del Sagrantino

Moody shot, Silvio.

The harsh, contrasting light gives additional atmosphere to the misty street.
I like the small lens flare just to the left of the woman and slight chromatic aberration just beside the drain which adds a tiny splash of colour to the shot.

I notice a ghostly looking shadow directly beneath the woman's arm too, which again adds a mystery and eeriness to the shot.
I'd be happy with this if I'd taken it.

Good job,


Awesome composition and great contribution to Friday's theme. Good use of backlighting to create the mood. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Silvio,
What a distinctive presentation depicting a great light source. An awesome contre-jour capture with nice play with shadows and highlights. A rather monochromatic presentation.
An original approach to this weekend theme.

Super shot Silvio, it caught my eye from the thumbnail. I love the way the ray of light is cast across the cobblestones. Good POV, looking up the road at the woman but we cannot see what she is doing or what is behind her because of the shadow. This adds much mystery to the image. I like the vertical framing, allowing us to see the detail of the cobbles as well as the lines in the paving. The drain cover acts as a good lead in for the eye. Lots of atmosphere with the b/w and great addition to this weeks theme.


Hi Sivio, tell me the name of the movie - thats what reminds me of your excellent shot mystic, moody atmosphere - I am just waiting that a hand reach out of nowhere to grab the woman.
Great pressentation as well as contribution to the Theme ...
Thanks for sharing - kindest regards Monika

Ciao Silvio,

Your snapshot reminded me Christmas season of two years ago when I visited Pisa and Firenze. Misty atmosphere is looking interesting and excellent use of a passing by person to add life. Fantastic idea for the theme my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hi Silvio,this is a very dramatic image with strong visual impact.The light,the fog and the cobble stones all the elements work together like in a piece of music.Fine work,Otto.

Hi Silvio...I like this moody monochromatic shot...good work on the cropping.


Hi Silvio

Hi Silvio, this is an excellent contribution to Fridays Theme. I love the source and the shadow. The texture of the stone is well captured. Good work & TFS

I like the immense mood you have captured in this shot, Silvio!
The B/W tones give the picture even a more intense look with superb sharpness and clarity.

Hi Silvio.

Lets hope more will pick up on this superb capture and try this themselves. Its a wonderful capture, the mood and tones used are so dramatic, especially the lucid ouitline of a person and the brightness of light obliterating all. Stunning.

stv ;o))

Have a peaceful weekend.

Yes very Moody
Light shadow and texture are balanced well in this photo.
good job
