I have just finished processing and posting the first of three galleries on my trip to Italy earlier in the month. Here are six pictures from that gallery, I hope you enjoy them. All images taken handheld with a D2H and 17-55mm f2.8 lens.

Assembly hall, Uffizi palace, Florence

Great stuff Gordon! I especially like the last one - it shows the texture of the stone and you can see the agony that both the subject and the artist went through. Keep processing and show us more!

PS on image #2, is the camera tilted, or does the building slope like that - it's Italy ya know so ... ;)

Thanks Chris. Image #2 was shot with my 17-55mm lens and because the scene is so large you have no choice but to tilt the camera up. This of course leads to converging lines at the top of the image. If there were a way to shoot from higher up and keep you camera level that would not happen but alas there is not.

Very nice love the forth one it just reached out and grabbed me for soem reason great comp on your part
Thanks Mike, I gave a lot of thought to that image. I purposely let the focus on Mary go soft in order to give emphasis to Christ. It is also one of my favorites. Handholding the camera for all of the indoor shots was a challenge in that it was fairly dark in almost every building.

Gordon, You are giving us all a major treat. First wife and now Florence. Small typo - it's Uffizi. But under any name it is lovely. What a treat to look back on! I too like the tomb, but it's a hard choice over the soft madonna.

Good to see your photos from Italy, Gordon...
... but the best part is having you back 8).

I just finished my tour of gallery 1. It's filled with wonderful images, but for me, this one stood out from the pack.

Hi Frank, thanks for taking the time to look and comment. As for the above picture, I think we all felt that way, I just couldn't find anyplace to sleep like that. After 40 hours in route we were pretty wasted.
