    That's a great trip. I've been to all those area in multiple times not at once though :) Cinque Terre is my favorite even though I live for 18 years in Paris.

    That really is a great set of photos.

    Only comment is that 'staircase' needs straightening but otherwise they're really good.

    Fabulous set, the really wide angle stuff in particular is beautifully composed. Some look extremely wide, which lens(es) are you using?

    There is quite a bit of wonkiness going on which detracts a little, but otherwise technically these are utterly brilliant.
