That's awesome congrats!   

I remember when these were posted on canon rumors a while back.  It's cool knowing so many people will be seeing it.

Congratulations! Did you carry an umbrella just in case? :D  I believe i prefer the rectilinear and horizontal form of the first image also. Did you use a wa lens correction or a different lens on the first image? I see the 2nd image begins at a lower point in the building and has curvilinear distortion, unless i am just hallucinating :D

Congrats!  I imagine it must be a great feeling to know that so many people have viewed your work (even if they don't realize it).

Beautiful capture!  Did they modify your photo to come up with the final version?  Looks like some PP work was done between the two.


Like the first better, but get the vision you had with the original.


Congrats on the exposure (pun already disclaimed in earlier post).

Wonderful shot.  May I also offer congratulations!  I also prefer the tighter crop and squarer angles of the first version.  In that version the building fits perfectly in a 3:2 ratio composition, which I found quite interesting.  I guess the Renaissance architects and artists, especially from that region near to Florence, would have used the 3.2:2 Golden Ratio, which is quite close.

Well done!
