This is Babugent, the Balkarian village, where the rivers Cherek Balkarskiy and Cherek Bezengiyskiy (or Cherek Khulamskiy, as its another name) flowed together forming the Cherek River. Administratively this is Cherekskiy District of the Kabardino-Balkar Republic.
In the background the Rocky mountain range is seen. It is cut with the both rivers. We went through it riding our bikes up along the Cherek Besengiyskiy River valley and the canyon partly seen at the top-right corner of the picture.

A very well composed landscape with lovely colours and light. I like the bridge and road winding through the village which is dominated by the pretty church against the soft backdrop of the mountains.

An image very well composed with a POV well selcetd. The bridge and the incurving way give graphism and too prospect effect to the image. Various elements very well collected with the yellow color of the cra which arise very well.
Kielia (23767) 2011-01-11 3:52
this is again a very interesting note to accompany your travel photos. Looking at this image I can very well understand why you have chosen this fantastic region as a destination.
The light is very pleasant and your excellent POV gives a good idea of the village at the river. But most of all I like the mountains in the mist. My compliments!

A pretty common place, with no special highlights.... but I really like seeing such images as well, because a place, a region, a Country is made of all kinds of landscapes and cityscapes and I do enjoy seeing or visiting everything!
Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, dof, colors, pp, contrasts, horizontal format and composition are all very good here!
TFS - congrats,

Well composed capture with the fading colors of the mountains
Like the mix of green and blue colors with touches of yellow and red
The towers of the church are well placed
Wish you a Very Good Year from Argentina

Have a good day,danos

Another good work for sharing the beauty of the countries that you have visited.
In this composition we can see a village with simple and traditional architecture, but with a beautiful church, in an image with a deep perspective, which leads our eyes up to the mountains covered with clouds in background.
The variety of colors and the luminosity they do a very pleasant photo.
Well done, my friend.
pablominto (53744) 2011-01-12 1:25
A well framed scene as we are entering this village!
The curving road is my lead through the composition, and the yellow car is a bit of an eye-catcher...
Technically good, fine feeling of depth and good colour reproduction!
JCG (35129) 2011-01-12 1:36
Summits in background in the fog which brings a particular atmosphere to the landscape and, finally, emphasize well this part of the village that you describe us well in your interesting note. Good composition on a new area of your country, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and an excellent day,

Creative pov with showing a road start from the bridge to lead our sight to the depth, beautiful local architectures, lovely village, nice backgroud mountain chains, full with relaxing feel, distinct photo, good shoot.
saxo042 (37588) 2011-01-12 8:56
The road curves through this village, beautifully situated beneath the mountains. A beautiful landscape here and a very pleasant daily life view with plenty of atrractive colours.
kordinator (19100) 2011-01-12 10:38
Beautiful composition of high quality.
Over interesting bridge and winding road through the settlement of view leads us to the mountains.
Great angle and perfect view photos.
Many nice details, colors, shapes.
Well written informative note.
Excellent work dear friend.
adramad (38832) 2011-01-12 11:43
Very good composition of this landscape, good POV directs the view from the curve of the bridge to the various buildings and mountains in the clouds of the background, it gives a good depth to the image.
Very nice color with this abundance of greens and those gray-blue background, on which stand the light colors of the houses.
P/D. Thanks for your comments, and indeed the picture was in B&W, was a mistake to raise and color mark
macjake (57412) 2011-01-12 12:35
i've enjoyed viewing this one more than your last one, although both are nice.
this one has so much clarity to it, even way into the background.
the winding road is neat, along with the church towers.
cool and simple blue bridge too.
Royaldevon (30745) 2011-01-12 16:12
Gosh, you must be fit after all this bike riding!
Your photograph shows a strong contrast between the developed, habited f/g and the shrouded, formidable mountain in the b/g.
You have taken the shot from a good pov, using the railed bridge as a lead into the shot, and a strongly positioned, brightly coloured van, to capture immediate attention.
My warm regards,
ines8 (6098) 2011-01-14 7:52
Beautiful view, beautiful light and colours.

Сергей, добрый вечер!
Интересный пейзаж. Всего понемногу: мостик, гор, зелень, машины, архитектура. Ну и текст очень интересный.
P.S. В Австрии очнь много велосипедов, целые стоянки. Ждут весны. И дорожки для езды в городе. Напомнило Амстердам. Там есди зазевавшегося пешехода собъют на велике на коричневой дорожке-извиняться никто не будет.

I like this photo very much. This time not only you show an interesting church but also in a context of the whole village. You found a great POV, the road makes a nice turn in the frame. The mountains on the horizon are fantastic and together with the dramatic clouds introduce an interesting atmosphere here.
Have a good day,
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2011-10-02 19:44
Lovely place. Like the road on the bridge curving into the town. Nice to see car and van moving on the bridge. Love the red roofs and green gate. A charming place with clarity and colors.
kennyblack (4207) 2013-02-09 5:55
Very beautiful this photo with the winding road, the presence of the bridge and the two towers of the church on the left. I like the POV and light management that you returned the beautiful details and colors. Thank you for sharing.
The best greetings, have a nice day ... Marino
