    The image is perfect in mono, Fabrizio, though I also like the color. But I must say I\'m beginning to get sick-n-tired of all the great people of the world who have been condemned and killed because of so-called heresy. I think I\'ve been seeing too many movies about this lately! It breaks my heart.

    Great B&W Picture, well Done

    Muy buena la imagen en grises. Le queda mejor a la figura del monje.
    Me gusta mucho el detalle del avión pasando por el cielo en la toma.

    no wonder the statue looks so forlorn and goth like…. the catholic church has alot to be ashamed of doesn\'t it… God used to kill alot of peeps in the old testament, but in the new, there\'s no excuse!!

    splendido bn! vedo che stai facendo buon uso dell\'ottica corta

  7. Posted 6 dicembre 2010 at 10:48 by Guido | Permalink

    Ottica corta… hai preso forse il 12-24 mm? se sì, era favoloso in dx. per diversi anni lo ho lasciato attaccato alla d70s e non riuscivo quasi + a staccarlo. Dal tuo profilo non vedo obiettivi sotto il 18 mm (forse è da aggiornare con i nuovi acquisti?). Comunque un bel bianco e nero in ricordo di Giordano Bruno, un po\' cupo forse sotto a quel cappuccio nel saio da frate. Ma la piazza è così vuota solo prima delle 8?

    Un gran contraste en un blanco y negro precioso. Además de una gran perspectiva!

    favolosa sembra quasi un 3d ! mi piace molto come hai valorizzato i dettagli del soggetto in relazione al fondale , bellissima.

    Excellent monochrome and compo .

  16. Posted 6 dicembre 2010 at 15:01 by Evil Cliffie | Permalink

    Great picture. The angle is superb, but I would have preferred to see a few more features of the statue (his face).

    I prefer the B &W,

    The B&W sets the mood for this somber remembrance. Bravo!

    Estupendo resultado, me recuerda a los solarizados que se hacian sobre el papel.
    Un saludo.

    fantastic b&w quality – I like that the place is empty of people

  24. Posted 6 dicembre 2010 at 18:02 by Giampiero | Permalink

    Giordano Bruno è un mio mito ed appare come nelle ombre del pensiero ;) splendido

    Un procesado de autentico lujo, es precioso.

    There are simply too many squares in Rome.
    I don\'t think I have been to this beautiful one.
    As all the tourists do in Rome, I did throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain.
    Let\'s hope that I can return to Rome one day soon!! :)

  32. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 01:19 by John Maslowski | Permalink

    Excellent perspective, like the tension created by the lines. Beautiful details and great contrasts, nice work!

  33. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 01:59 by rian | Permalink

    love the wide angle feel of this b&w scene you captured.. great tones as well.. :)

    Outstanding photograph, Fabrizio!!! Excellent composition and the light is superb.

    Nice wide angle shot. Monochrome PP is well done.

    Fabulous tonal range, depth, detail and a wonderful composition Fabrizio!

  39. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 08:36 by Oscar | Permalink

    Bon Giorno Fabrizio,
    He estado mirando la foto en color y en B&N, y aunque en color es preciosa, en B&N es mas a temporal, podría ubicarse en cualquier parte de la historia reciente.

    Un saludo

  40. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 09:10 by roberto | Permalink

    Per rispondere a Guido: trovo che la bellezza , fra l\'altro, di questa foto , sia proprio quell\'oscurità che da vita alla statua, che la rende pensierosa. E bravo Fabrizio!

  41. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 11:13 by buntagphoto | Permalink

    I like the BW a lot. Very nice tones.

  42. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 11:17 by Pau Blasi | Permalink

    Muy buena composición. En mi opinión, una de la mejores de las últimas que he visto tuyas. Preciosa simetría y efecto.

    Superb photo with a excellent angle and very nice framing. Excellent work. Bonne journée Fabrizio. Antoine.

    Très belle composition et un beau travail sur la lumière. Bravo!

  46. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 15:20 by 25BAR | Permalink

    So typical. A European square,

  47. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 15:30 by Nazzareno | Permalink

    Ottima scelta compositiva che regala alla piazza una drammaticità che normalmente ( e giustamente) manca, ma che è perfetta per incorniciare la statua di Giordano Bruno in un contesto spesso dimenticato.

  48. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 16:18 by john | Permalink

    you\'ve done an excellent job shooting and editing this picture. love the contrast and details.

  49. Posted 7 dicembre 2010 at 17:39 by Ken | Permalink

    torno sul luogo del delitto perché mi vien da dire che si avvicina molto al delitto perfetto ;-) quoto in pieno Nazzareno che ha analizzato molto bene lo scatto

    ciao e buon ponte (se fai ponte… altrimenti buon giorno di riposo ;-)

  53. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 00:47 by Akaruiphoto | Permalink

    The warm colors with the blue sky are very nice but I prefer the BW version where the statue is better seen as the main subject.

  54. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 01:41 by regzgz | Permalink

    A well taken picture, the information complements the whole package!

  55. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 05:12 by t. becque | Permalink

    A lovely photograph. I like the \"glow\" of the white buildings.

  56. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 05:30 by RobertB | Permalink

    I like you low down point of view. it makes for an interesting perspective.

  57. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 05:45 by peter | Permalink

    This is a great tribute Fabrizio and you capture is very well….the mono brings out the severity of the act against Filippo Bruno ….well done my friend….peter:)

  58. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 10:32 by tede | Permalink

    Straordinaria B & W, morbido e leggero grigio è bello. Non parlava buona filosofia in quel momento. Buon giorno.

  59. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 12:22 by Journey Photographic | Permalink

    I like the way you\'ve positioned the statue in the centre, it lets the lines of the cobblestones draw your eye to the statue.

  60. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 13:28 by MrCrab | Permalink

    I am getting jealous that you have so many commentators lol!

  61. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 15:39 by george | Permalink

    It\'s amazing the way a great picture manages to be great in either B/W or colour, both giving a quite different emotional feel to the photograph. Both are first class.

  62. Posted 8 dicembre 2010 at 22:36 by ValterD | Permalink

    as a physisists, I\'ve red a lot about him, thanks for sharing this lovely place of your town

    Great light and use of angle!

  64. Posted 9 dicembre 2010 at 00:04 by jess | Permalink

    An incredible amount of depth and contrast! The b&w version is very powerful as opposed to the color. You\'ve captured the essence of this man\'s story.

  65. Posted 9 dicembre 2010 at 02:01 by Jose | Permalink

    Excellent use of b&w here

  66. Posted 11 dicembre 2010 at 14:09 by Roland | Permalink
