Assisi and the Basilica di San Francesco.
My aim in this shot was to show the basilica dominating the hilltop, and looking out over the Umbrian countryside.
The basilica is one of the great Christian shrines and receives vast numbers of pilgrims each year.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Jean
I took a shot from the same spot... thanks for memory lane...
fine POV for impressive Basilica. well composed with nice green lawn and splendid horizon.

I like the composition, using the basilica to show the beautiful valley beyond. I'm glad you included the people, adding human element to the composition. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Jean,
A lovely postcard of Assisi. I like the POV of this church with such a panorama in its back.
Excellent exposure management producing good white and perfect greens and blue.
The road in the left is enhancing the presentation.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Perfectly composed picture. I like the way the pavement leads the eye into and immediately out of one corner of the image.
