About This is a shot of the nave and rib-vault of the Duomo in Florence, looking toward the crossing and chancel. It doesn't need further explanation from the likes of me. Compared with the other great cathedrals of England and Europe, it's starkly plain. I think it owes its power to this simplicity. The Dome is another story and I am looking forward to that. I'm experimenting with selective de-saturation, as can be seen here. Please don't take it too earnestly - the RAW image is still there :)

Oh, and congratulations on the awards. Well deserved.

Hi Anthony,

I just ran across this shot flipping through pictures. Very nice! I like the de-saturation leaving the windows and a few splashes of color here and there. Very neat effect. I hope you worked up the nerve to get some shots from inside the dome!

Thanks for sharing,

excellent Ant
Congrats on the award :)
you deserve it my friend :)


Don mecano   {K:141} 7/3/2009
Correction, the post is Siena's Duomo not Firenze. Though I dare say I can dig up some footage of that magnificent cathedral :)


Don mecano   {K:141} 7/3/2009
OK there you go
The same location :P


Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 7/2/2009
Why thanks Don. GET POSTING some of your HD stills!




Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 7/2/2009
Thank you Steve, very much. I very much appreciate comments like yours which add an extra dimension. My desaturation attempt here was rushed, and I certainly wasn't expecting any award for it! The crude smudging on the figure at left irritates me - a lot! And i am sure that many others take the whole idea greatly amiss. I was anticipating that in my "About".

Kind of you to take time to visit and comment.



Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 7/2/2009
What can I say Malules, except thanks. I have been enjoying your series of abstracts in Prague, and my sincerest congratulations on your BIP for:

I DO your # 17 in that series:

Yours ever,



Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 7/2/2009
Armando, your comment made me laugh out loud - I love your humour - and exaggeration! In fact, I should very much love to see your work on Florence. I'm about to look at some i took of the Dome of the Duomo because it absolutely fascinates me, both for its art, and the sheer genius of its construction.

Kind regards and thank you for your words.



Steve Aronoff Steve Aronoff   {K:18393} 7/2/2009
What I like about the desaturation here is that the undesaturated people present the effect of additional stained glass on the floor. The new mimicking the old. Congratulations on your award.


Don mecano   {K:141} 7/2/2009
Congratulations, your recent output has been excellent. That two/three year hiatus you took from this site seems to have energized you!
Great picture and well deserved award.

Armando Giambolini Armando Giambolini   {K:17779} 7/2/2009
Hello Anthony ,

I visited Firenze years ago and have taken a lot of photos included the Duomo too.

I can tell you that in comparison with yours my pictures are to be destroyed...

hahaha...yes .

However this one is a masterpiece , indeed !

Congratulazions for the deserved awards.




Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 7/1/2009
My thanks to you Domenico!




Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 7/1/2009
Warmest thanks indeed Rashed! It's a real pleasure to receive praise from someone like you, whose art and technique I have much to learn from, and which I greatly admire.

Are you still busy in Thailand?

Regards as ever,



Rashed Abdulla   {K:4136} 6/30/2009

I do love my medium format camera, mainly for printing larger prints and capturing detail. I credit the use of film for the appearance of the images that I create. Friendly competition with my brothers also helps alot.
Thank you very much for your kind compliment. You have some outstanding work in your portfolio as well.

Congratulations again.......



Anthony Lound Anthony Lound   {K:6661} 6/29/2009
Many thanks Mike. I see you are a professional photographer (at least I think I am correct).

I am intrigued, because I have just been looking at your portfolio, in particular this quite astonishing image of yours: Simple technical question (for your art speaks for itself here): do you attribute the stunning quality of your photograph to the medium format you used? Even as a web image, circumscribed by this medium, it stands out brightly, and persuasively.

Regards, and thanks again for your interest,
