Interesting capture. Would be helpful to critique if shooting information is available. Nice clear & colorful image. Only the sky need to be adjusted for the strong light. Very interesting notes. Regards. Latiff.

Good shot. The POV, DOF, color and composition as good. Nice and sharp also. I would like to see one person fully in the frame, for some reason, and a blue sky would make it better. Still a good photo though. Nice note and good framing also.

Just a snapshot with a very informative note but my friend you just concentrate a little more on your photography as here we all thrive to better our skills in a gradual process...
Hope I make myself clear to you & please do not take it as personal as I would like every member here in TE to click better photos each passing day :)

J'aime la belle perspective et la composition de cette photo. Dommage que le ciel soit blanc. La photo reste belle à voir avec un bon dynamisme créé par les obliques.
