Happy birthday, PWS, and thanks to your curators for your inspiration and support!
In my opinion, this pictures is worth seeing for a couple of independent reasons. First, it renders a wonderful spot: the Ponte Vecchio (or old bridge) in Florence, Italy. Second, as it is often the case in photography, unexpected circumstances contribute to its attractiveness: The camouflage-like look of buildings on the left side was caused by artifacts stored in front of a spotlight. Third, it demonstrates the considerable progresses of electronic photography: It has been taken with an Android smartphone, Google’s Nexus 5 of 2013. Fourth, it shows how well common software now process photographs: The panorama has been generated from several pictures. Finally, many will, as I do, like this picture!
