A most pleasurable page :-) Maybe I'd like a more punchy B&W conversion and one or two straightened horizons (but only one or two) . Nicely varied though.

Thanks for pointing out Mike.Which ones are the most disturbing for you? (you get blind for your own work sometimes and it was an area with hardly any straight horizons anyhow )

Your choice of subjects and converting to b/w creates a very fine series of images.

My favorites in the last two installments:

#50 and #51: I would have never expected American Studies to take place here (and that such a place is accessible for the public) - but rather a museum or something else dating back to antiquity (the fall of empires might be a common denominator). This is obviously a special place and your images share in this quality. very well.
#56: Wonderful exposure; b/w can create some wonderful images of nature (I think that's much more difficult in b/w than in color, but you managed it admirably).
#66: Very good to show just half of the arch - an excellent composition (I would whish for deeper blacks at the end of the histogram, though).

This has been a quite unusual visual document of holidays in Italy - it looked much more like a photo tour!

TFS!

It's nothing serious at all but seeing as you asked, it's 50 and 64. Not so much the tilt in 50 but the geometry isn't quite symmetrical (I'm a fusspot about that for that sort of pic) and 64 makes me feel a little dizzy as the benches are tilted. Maybe tilt more for some fun drama or try a perspective correction.

@ Waldo_post: Many thanks for your comments.
It was a surprise for me as well that the institute for American studies was completely open. All the main tourist attractions and public transport stations in Rome were guarded by heavily armed soldiers.
More black tones in my BW conversions seems a common theme in the comments on this thread. I am here to learn, so will certainly pick that up.
I made this holiday my own photo tour. We usually go out to explore the area on our holidays visiting lots of interesting places. My recent sign up to Dyxym has certainly changed the way I am looking and taking pictures these days.

@Mikey2000: Thanks Mike. I see what you mean now. Pretty busy at the moment with work on the house and family matters, but I will correct and repost later this week.
