Continuing the mini-theme of iconic buildings (basically an excuse for me to recycle old pictures).

Today it's back to the “old world” and the Leaning Tower - unmistakable and a true building icon… but probably for all the wrong architectural reasons :-)

      very interesting shot ... the people hold up their end of the third element by being in color

      i`m having a serious jet lag... from nyc to sydney and now pisa... what a great idea to present it from such perspective, close to a straight building and so emphasizing its slanting.

      Great shot - I like your choice of framing to really contrast the straightness (or otherwise!) of the two buildings.

      I really like the composition with only a portion of the tower showing. Very nice!

      Very nice angle ... of the shot !
      The tower looks even more tilted compared to the other building...It gives me nausea...I wouldn't have the courage to stand nearby....but I bet you went up to the highest level to see the view ;)) !
