    The second part of my holiday took me to Florence where we did some day trips to Sienna, Luca and Pisa.

    Here's a short selection, enjoy!

    There were also some panoramas done that you can click and zoom around. Looks best in full screen

    Nice work. I like 6 and 10. Plenty of potential there in 11 also.

    I loved Florence...one of my favourite Italian cities :)

    My favourites from your sets so far are always the panos. I am also very jealous that you get the opportunity to head up to the vantage points on dusk. The few times I've been there with my then girlfriend (and now wife) she is sick of walking around all day by then and is thinking of dinner lol

    My girlfriend is very, very tolerant and supportive. Especially when we were heading off to the Florence lookout and I'm saying "come on, walk quicker! you're carrying my tripod and I need it on the top in 5 minutes!". She's a champ

    Yeah that one was bitch. Cos it's a pano and shot fairly wide there is some distortion in there. I didn't have PS on my laptop when I was travelling but you're right, now that i'm back I should have a shot at fixing it up.

    I also shouldn't have shot as wide to avoid distortion. I was just lazy and didn't want to take so many photos!

    Thanks guys!

    It's a photo of the leaning tower of Pisa.

    haha yes fully aware of that but I wasn't happy with the mixed distortion in the photo regardless of that bloody tower!
