I love Italian architecture. The third one (Sienna) is very interesting, great angle.

I recognised the arena in Verona straight away. Lovely city.

Thanks everyone. I've been struggling a bit recently to get enthused with photography. I seem to go through these down periods occasionally but hopefully I'm over that once again.

Thanks Phil
No 5 is Villa Sauli Pallavicino, in Parco Comunale in Arenzano near Genoa.

Thanks Andy. The Siena Tower is one of my personal favourites from the trip. Weirdly, I don't really remember taking it!

The Laowa took a bit for me to get used to. It works very well on the K1 but it does have a couple of quirks. There is a mild colour shift due to the vignetting it produces at certain apertures. It is also not supported on my preferred RAW converter but as it has very low distortion it doesn't seem to matter too much. Easily fixed in post-process. I really like the colours it produces straight from the RAW file and it is sharp enough for my failing eyesight.

Gt set... looks like quite a trip... no. 3 for me from your first set is a beaut... and the first one from your second set too...

Brings back memories from our trip to Italy in January 2018. Very nice.
