Artist's Description

I realise that this image will not appeal to some people, but i’m on a bit of a HDR trip at the moment – so bear with me on that! (HDR combined from 3 exposures in Photomatix) As for the sky – I can’t say anything other than I didn’t want it to be blue, so I changed it. Here is a little bit of background info for this particular Roman street:

“Via Condotti (officially Via dei Condotti) is a street of Rome, Italy. In Roman times it was one of the streets that crossed the ancient Via Flaminia and enabled people who crossed the Tiber to reach the Pincio hill. It begins at the Spanish steps and is named after conduits or channels which carried water to the Baths of Agrippa. Via Condotti is a center of fashion shopping in Rome, dating back to the atelier of Bulgari which opened in 1905. Now, in addition to Valentino, other designers such as Armani, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Salvatore Ferragamo all have stores on Via Condotti.”
