    Beautiful!

    I'm going as part of my honeymoon cruise of the Med in August. I can only hope to get some pics like this!

    My wife's favorite city, and you captured it well, I think (she agrees!). The level of detail on that first shot of il Duomo is remarkable!

    Yes defo visit if you get the chance, such a beautiful place!

    Congrats! Let me know if you need any recommendations, Be sure to watch the sunset from piazza Michelangelo - it's a must.

    Thanks - glad you both like the photos! That was with the 35mm really could have done with a much wider lens to get more of the building in shot.

    Two of the three David's I saw in Florence. (The third is the copy in front of Palazzo Vecchio, just to the left of the door in shot #2, above)

    The original David at the Accademia Museum. A6000, SEL24240@28mm, 1/60th@f/8, ISO-2000
    22494829119_555e78403f_o.

    Close-up of the original David. SEL24240@112mm, 1/100th@f/8, ISO-3200
    22873517942_a3313c2643_o.

    The Bronze David at Piazzale Michelangelo. SEL24240@28mm, 1/60th@f/20, ISO-250. (I didn't notice I had accidentally spun the dial to change the aperture from my preferred f/8)
