Taken on an early May morning in Florence, Italy. I arrived at the plaza at daybreak hoping to shoot this sculpture with minimal interruption, only to find that there were easily over 1,000 people milling about the plaza. People were on and about the arcade where this sculpture stands so it was quite difficult to get a shot uninterrupted. I wanted to eliminate the wires attached to the sculpture (they are there to discourage birds from landing on the sculptures and fouling them). One wire is barely visible on Sabina's thumb. I plan on returning in the dead of winter to hopefully photograph the sculpture with no people around to block the shot. I have entered a digitally altered version of this shot in the Smithsonian magazine's annual photo contest, with a soft filter applied and a reduction in ambient lighting to add a romantic and soft feeling.
