    Hi Noel
    A fine view of this quaint little town and appealing colour palette with the eye catching statue perfectly placed - a key feature in an ideal location against lovely pastel buildings. A fine piece of artwork and really looks commanding accentuated by the fantastic sky drama! Superb capture and cool on the eyes. Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    Interesting title !
    Difficult conditions but you have managed to get those natural colours, beautifully detailed and illuminated in their proper context. Direction of the diagonal light makes this image really work adding a lot to the compo....like a spotlight from the angel! Rather better than a pure record, gives a more pictorial appeal as if a piece of history has suddenly appeared....

    Remarkable capture and tfs, enjoyed reading your in-depth narratives.
    Best wishes

    Hello Jorge,
    What a refined and at the same time imposing architecture!
    You present this palace from a good angle and the lamppost and the small garden make a very pretty foreground.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Great idea of you to climb the tower. You were rewarded with a gorgeous view over the town.
    Beautiful architecture along the square but especially the church is striking with its light orange colour.
    Excellent clear and sharp presentation.

    Hello Beverley,
    A beautiful picture of the old town with buildings on different levels.
    The huge wall which we saw already on your other pictures looks most impressive.
    The three waving flags are a beautiful and colourful element of this photo.

    Hello Lisa,
    What a wonderful decorated and painted ceiling of this church!
    Excellent capture of the sunbeams that fall in in a beautiful diagonal line.
    Even when people don't go often to church, it can be an excellent location to quietly think things through.

    Another charming square surrounded by beautiful buildings with richly decorated facades and balconies. Also here a part of the charm is made by the outdoor restaurants.

    Hallo John,
    Mannen met baarden zijn wel één van je lievelingsonderwerpen in fotografie.
    Het verbaast me steeds weer hoe je al die haartjes uiterst scherp hebt weergegeven. Eveneens de heel kleine rimpeltjes in de jas van deze man.
    De bakstenen muur is dan lichtjes wazig om de persoon des te beter te benadrukken.
    Ik heb bij deze foto een vraagje. Dit is niet kritiek maar ik merk dat veel fotografen bij portretten een stukje van de persoon afsnijden. Soms is dat een klein deel van het hoofd bovenaan. Hier betreft het een minuscuul deel van de muts en van het haar en de baard van de man. Ik ben helemaal niet goed in portretfotografie en maak bijna nooit dergelijke foto's maar spontaan zou ik trachten het hoofd helemaal weer te geven. Nochtans merk ik dat vele fotografen dat net niet doen. Is dat een regel in fotografie?
    Vele groeten, Paul

    Bonjour Christiane,
    Un paysage bizarre et pourtant différent du plus célèbre Monument Valley.
    Ici les structures rocheuses sont également très élevés mais très minces.
    Cela semble une image d'un road movie américain.
