Spring Showers on Ponte Vecchio, Florence

Concept: Depth (diluting depth); Perspective (tonal); Perspective (colour); Perspective (sharpness); Muted colours (contemplative)

Description: The presence of historic Florence is immediately felt due to the downplay perspectival clues.
  • linear perspective - convergence of lines decreased using the zoom facility
  • tonal perspective - diffused lighting lowers the difference between foreground and background contrast
  • colour perspective - the lack of bright colours as worn by the pedestrians (by fortunate circumstance) and muted by lighting conditions, causes the foreground elements to recede, while the bright golden orb atop the Duomo appears to advance, compressing the viewing planes together. 
  • sharpness - outlines of distant buildings are only slightly less sharp
