Hat Tip to Willy Ronis.  A book on him explains the results he gets from shooting down, which I have almost always found disappointing.  But if you use it to separate the elements of your shot, you can get nice results.  Dear beloved Peter Dumont had suggested some time ago that for these fountain shots I should get down the the same level as the subjects.  But this is better, holding the camera over my head.

of courese its better you wont get wet.  There is a nice diagonal line connecting the three major players but beyond that is well ok not grabbing me. The fountain screams for watter even a gurgle of water and without it we are guessing fountain. The body language of the girl in front is wonderful and the mirror image of the two with there detritus on the founding lip is working for you. maybe tighter crop but I am not sure. Its good but I expect more from you Fad
