Riomaggiore, Italy

The most southerly of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre on the Ligurian coast, the picture-postcard Riomaggiore captures the imagination at it seems to tumble down the steep hillside into the Mediterranean. If you ever do get to visit, be sure to sample the local wine produced from the grapes of the vineyards above the town.

What does Riomaggiore mean...
does it have meaning like the greek towns and all have...
i have seen 'supermaggiore' in Italy...
 
very dangerous,at the same time very nice beautiful
 
Ah! That is gorgeous!
 
There is a haunting abandoned village in the cliff side between Sorrento and Napoli have you been ther Vicktor? It would be a brilliant photo shoot.
 
+Kay Delaney - do you know the name of the village near Sorrento? I'd be very curious to find out more
 
that is an awesome picture
 
Hi Viktor I will find the details for you and let you know later :-)
 
+Andrew Gilmore - I'm not sure what you mean. Do you see in LDR? Would you prefer I under-exposed the image, or whitened out the sky. Which part of this image do you think I couldn't see with my own eyes?
 
it cool to hang out there

hi Julissa Beltre..I think u r so nice...so I added u...Please come...
 
Wow, that is beautiful!! Did someone paint that?
 
Looks amazing, but I'm afraid that when I get there I will be like:"WOW!!!......now what else is there to do?" And be bored the rest of the day, unless you can safely and freely swim down there. But it still wouldn't be worth a visit in my eyes. Thanks for the picture though....very inspiring!

Visited last year, all five villages were beautiful
 
+Andrew Gilmore I appreciate your comments and opinion. But I do find there is a lot of prejudice against "HDR" photography. I'm reluctant to use the term. I try to recreate what I saw, using multiple exposures to tease out the detail. So this image contains elements from about four exposures. The fact is we rarely see real black, especially in daylight, and we rarely see pure white either. There is always some detail in what we see. But in conventional photography it is common to have large areas of black and/or white. This is accepted because we are used to it.

If you look at the development of photography over the last 150 years you will understand that "HDR" is just another step in the move towards the realistic photographic representation of what we see. We've come a long way since monochrome, duotone and polaroid images. In the near future I believe all camera sensors will have a much higher dynamic range and there will be no need to spend the time on HDR processing techniques. "HDR" will become the norm. It already has for me. When I see "normal" photographs these days, I see what's missing. I see LDR.

I appreciate your comments and welcome them. It's all part of a discussion.
 
Incredible Image! Some of the HDR is done well and some not so well.... this is very well done! Triple WOW WOW WOW Award from me! Fantastic composition too!
 
omg but that place is cute but its floding
 
I looked through all your images you have posted and enjoyed them immensely; a varied and stunning view of the world and yet I noticed there is a void with out images of Canada. I may be a bit partial but, I live in the Vancouver / Whistler area and I think it is the most beautiful place on earth even if it lacks some of the history of some of the other places. I do hope to see some Canadian images from you some time.
 
thats just a picture from end of the world trailer
 
Spectacular image! I want to go there!
 
this is a beautifully captured image of a beautiful location!
 
I was there in September. Incredible beautiful blend of outdoor scenery and architecture. Beautiful photo.

Thanks,

Good to know Italians are not bothered with raising ocean levels... ;-)

Wow. Beautiful picture. I am Italian and I know I will never get to go to Italy. I hope to someday though.
 
Structurally this is such an interesting photo. It's like you photographed the cusp of where nature meets urbanization. Stunning!

On a trip from Madrid to Rome, I traveled along the Costa Ligure and it was breathtaking. I must admit, however, that I liked the French Riviera a little better as it wasn't quite as stark. Beautiful shot.

the reason of green colored is algae,bacteria and plant reaction with water. which caused green colored.
