The old facade of the Duomo in Florence, Italy was the work of a number of artists and was never completed. In 1864 a competition was held for a new facade and in 1871, Emilio De Fabris was the successful winner. The marble used for the facade came from local Tuscany towns and was completed in 1887.
On the facade of the Florence Duomo, you can see all the intricate work put into the design and the wonderment of the architecture which makes the Duomo a very popular tourist attraction. Not many tourists who visit the city of Florence in Italy, can say that they bypassed the Duomo, and if they did, their trip would not have been complete.
I photographed this photo with the digital SLR camera model Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, aperture of f/4.5, exposure time of 1/200 sec. on ISO 100, as always I used a original Canon Lens, the focus lenght for this picture was 200mm.
