I've seen photos of the roads like this one in Lesotho, SA and Namibia taken by a friend of mine some 20 years ago and they looked great! Wide, flat and straight, disappearing on the horizon. He didn't mention the speed humps so I wonder if they are a new thing.
We often have preconceptions about so called less developed countries and then find out reality is very different. I found the roads in Macedonia and the main roads in Romania great but I had expected driving in those countries would be a nightmare. You just never know.
I like the monochrome presentation in this image and the composition with the road leading to the mountain in the distance.
Have a nice day

this picture is so beautiful and poetic, you have combined very aptly the rhythmical layout of the boats with the total calmness of the scenery. There's wonderful depth, enhanced by the gradually fading colours. I also like the shadows and the diffusion of the warm tones. The atmosphere is captivating. Congratulations and thank you! I like the monochrome version presented by Will in the Workshop too.
All the best, have a lovely day,

A fine capture of this attractive old house now put to another use. The upwards point of view shows the structure to good effect. I like the play of light and shadow and the lovely warm tones and textures to be observed in the woodwork.

I am quite fond of port, especially the ruby variety, one of the reasons for hoping to go to Porto. Did you partake whilst you were there? The high vantage point has helped you create an interesting graphical composition that is particularly suited to the vertical format. I like the alternate strips of red and white and the shadow play. Good rendering of the textural detail.
