Thank you for your votes and comments.

To tell the truth I don't think it deserves such score, but I'm happy to get a top 10. I didn't even want to enter it.

This place is Civita di Bagnoregio a wonderful small village that is connected to main town only through this narrow bridge. It's a breathtaking view and I was very disappointed because I didin't fully show its beauty

Johanna you're perfectly right! Italian is losing all it was famous for in the past: art is dying and it seems that no one is really interested in preserving many of our beauties. This bridge is one of the worst examples even if the view is still extraordinary.

I've been here!!! I knew it was Civita from the thumbnail. What an extraordinary place. I wish they'd designed the bridge with a little more thought about style, as I think the modern look detracts from the town :-)

Wonderful light! I'm really curious where this is. Only negative is that single light lighting up the walk. It steals too much of the viewer's eye away from the city, I think.

Very exquisite! Great light and I love how the composition takes me through and beyond... Well done, Alessandro!

What an interesting place! Perhaps a bit overtweaked (although I can say the same about my entry, too.)

HDR works well in this with the light and color. Love the leading lines and there is enough detail in the subject to make it interesting.
