The Most Serene Republic of San Marino is a country in the Apennine Mountains.
It is a landlocked enclave, completely surrounded by Italy.

Here you can see an image of the Piazza della Libertà on a sunny day in August 2008.

In my WS, different perspective from the same Piazza della Libertà, worked with Neat Image.

Lighting and shadows are fantastic in your presentation of the Piazza. It is a quaint and charming town, and I would not mind visiting this someday. Tech settings appear optimum. Lovely, very lovely. Danilo

Hi Liliana...

Beautiful capture and a beautiful view of "Piazza della Liberta"...
I like your post, light and soft colors.
Congratulations my friend...

Hi Liliana
nice place and nice shot.Wonderful colours.

hello Lili

Something different from you on architecture and a lovely moment of capture in this warm light and blue sky.

We seldom get any news on San Marino but I can see the style is very influenced from its bigger neighbor.

How I wish to sit on the cafe and have something to eat or drink in the sun.

tfs, bill

Ciao Lili, bella vista di questa famosa piazza, ottimo POV e splendidi colori, brava, ciao SIlvio

Hi Lili,
This one is far more interesting than the one in the workshop, although that is good too.
The lighting here is lovely, revealing all the colour and textures of the architecture.
Well seen, and well presented.
My kind regards,

Hello Lili.

Another perfect shot with extraordinary atmosphere you achived. Great pov and so defined, lovely color tints. Great work!

All the best!

Hi Lili,

A lovely sunny square with beautiful buildings.

Because I think the buildings on the left are leaning a bit (probably because you tilted the camera backwards), I applied a slight perspective correction - see workshop.

San Marino, one of those small countries I would love to visit.
TFS it.

Hi Lili,
Great cityscape from San Marino, perfect sharpness on the building and the sculpture. The light conditions were really good to take this picture, nicely exposed sky and pieces of clouds. Wellc aptured daily life snapshot from this place that presents beautiful architectural elements. TFS.
Best wishes,

Hello Liliana
What a very sunny piazza with old continent colors. The place was somewhat deserted on that day. I would have choosen a different angle though. If you had moved to the rignt, we would have seen more of the church facade and that bigmonument would have maskedin the shadow corner oat the left of the church.
Nice place to sip a coffee in the morning.

ciao Lili..
so near to me.. where i actually live.. during the week! ;))
nice at all.. architectures.. light and shadows.. composition! many thanks
ciao Marco

Buna Lili,
Superba arhitectura si lumina. Trebuie sa fie fascinant sa locuiesti intr-un loc ca asta, incarcat de istorie....
Toate cele bune si pe curand !

Beautiful warm colors. I really enjoyed the blue sky and the use of light in your work. Great overall.
Thank you for sharing

Hi Lili
Each one is a revelation! What a great combination of rich colors enhanced by the side light and POV. Excellent details and framing. It's a place I have been too quite a few times and I find it quite picturesque except the vendors of course
Have a lovely w.e. and TFS

Hi Liliana,there are several things that grab my attention,the architechture bathed in that wonderful sunlight,
the small water fountain, which I think has the profile of England's Queen Victoria,but what really got my attention was the scene at the restuarant,a young lady has just walked passed the tables of the restuarant where a single patron,must be a tourist,is busy looking at a menu or newspaper,while the two Italian waiter's are still looking at the beautiful woman that had just passed them,priorities still have their place I am glad to see:)

Hi Liliana

Sensibilidad y bien tu perspectiva de enfoque, el manejo de la nitidez y color bien logrados te felicito.


Hi Lili
This is excellent composition with beautiful
perspective and exposure.Beautiful details and colors.TFS

Ciao Liliana

Beautiful visual and effect!
A beautiful warm light down all the details of this place!
I like the fact that this sheet is in red with the color of the bricks.
She is a picture becomes very calm and quiet.
Congratulations, an excellent shot!

Definitely seems worth a visit, Liliana... especially under that deep blue sky! A nice town scene, the warm colours of the walls make the place look really welcoming.
There's some lens distortion near the edges which could be straightened with PS, but it's not too disturbing.
Nice one. TFS and also for the alternative view.
Merry Christmas!

bonjour Liliana
Juste pour le nom de la place : 2points
la lumière est excellente
Bonne journée

Hi Liliana.

You seems to like to travel very much. And it is very good for us because the world, through you eyes, is very beautiful. ;-)
I like the luminosity and the warm colors of the stones as well as the POV.

Happy holidays.

Hi Liliana,
this is postcard quality. Sharp image, good exposure and saturation.
One thing that I think would have made it even better is if the line of the roof (top left) started right at the upper left corner..

Best regards, Daniel

Beautiful with very warm tones! wish i was sipping espresso on the side cafes!

What a great photo from San Marino....
Realy impresive

Very beautiful picture of the street. Good texture and tones,

Ciao Lili,
"FujiFilm FinePix S5700"...?Pai cum asa? Inca nu aveai 40D-ul,sau ai asta ca si a doua camera?
Nu sa ma dau mare,dar si eu incerc sa folosesc in paralel 40D si 5D,care este full-frame deoarece fiecare are avantajele lui,insa nu prea reusesc,din cauza greutatii si a senzorului,pina la urma.
40D este un aparat grozav insa simt ca 5D parca-mi vine turnat ca o manusa. Este modelul vechi acuma,nu Mark 2,dar calitatea imaginii este superba.
Un aparat mai micutz poate fi foarte la indemina pentru ca de multe ori ocazia pierduta este mai importanta decit calitatea tehnica a pozei.
Oricum,poza asta nu poate fi numita "snapshot" deoarece tehnic este foarte buna iar compozitia foarte inspirata.
Nu stiu de ce dar te tin minte bine de cind ai debutat pe site-ul asta si ai invatat si progresat enorm.
Felicitarile mele,

Perfect colors, nice details...
Agree with RSK!

Hi Lili,
Indeed you have captured the serenity of this scene very well. The golden colour reflecting the sun's warm glow on the buildings is perfectly balanced by the cool blue of the sky. I just love the splash of vivid red in the lower corner. This is a perfect capture of daily life. Well done.

Very well composed photo with excellent sharpness, great vivid colours and a great light control. The photo is wonderful and gives a great perspective of the piazza.
Congrats, mb

Hi Liliana,
I think that San Marino is a little gem of that beautiful jewel which is Italy, and the picture you are sharing here gives justice to the place. There's a very soft and relaxed mood with the people walking around or sitting at the coffee shop and enjoying the beautiful weather. Quality is very good with nice details visible throughout. I like it!
Thanks for sharing it and regards,


Salut Liliana.
Si toutes les cartes postales étaient aussi belles que cette photo, j’en achèterai plus souvent.
Bravo pour cette belle photo.
Bonne soirée.

ciao Liliana!!!!!!!
