Dubrovnik is a beautiful place but it can be overrun with tourists. I took this from the city walls looking straight down the Placa which runs from one side of the old town to the other.
I love the reflection from the tiled street. Makes it look wet.
Another in series of random images from my portfolio.
Comments and question always welcome.
One of the many advantages a full frame DSLR has over any other camera with a cropped sensor is the shallow depth of field. Here on the city walls (ramparts) that surround the beautiful city of Dubrovnik the views are sensational. But I wanted to make a minimalistic picture of the view and this is the result. The dome is one of two round towers on the walls.
the next set of images we posted to our site katin images were taken in croatia. any one who has been there will tell you it is a beautiful country with a spectacular 1800km coastline hugging the adriatic sea.
our time was divided between split and dubrovnik, split being a modern town embedded with a roman palace, whilst dubrovnik, typical of many european towns, has an fortfied old town surrounded on three sides by the more functional ‘newer’ areas of town. so it wasn’t much of a challenge to find photogenic spots.
the only challenges were to put down the camera and enjoy the ambiance of two different cities and to try and take some original shots, which i believe we acheived. this one is taken from the ramparts that enclose dubrovnik old town.
by the way with all the posted images just click on them if you want to see a larger view.
