Duomo Upper Central Section Facade Close Up in Florence, Italy

Some Duomo critics protest that it is over decorated. However, I was mesmerized by all the intricate features on this Roman Catholic basilica and thankfully a long lens brought them up close for inspection. An example is this huge, gorgeous rose window. Below it is a statue of Mary with the infant Jesus. In fact, the entire façade is dedicated to the Mother of Christ.
