...slowly going to colour pictures...
I can't post a sunset photo after the last B/W pictures ;)))
Been here last sunday. Wonderful weather, all together... I think that's been told very much about Motovun... maybe just two couriosities:
- Every year it's a host of a famous world film festival.
- In this town is born Mario Andretti, who was the formula 1 world champion in 1978. Anyone remember him? Well I do, because I'm old enough... at that time I've had 12 years and my room was full of formula 1 posters...
In the workshop you'll find the wider view.
I wish you a pleasant weekend! No stress...

Very nice picture with a good sky through the window. Yes, I am also “young” enough to remember Mario Andretti, when formula 1 was more interesting to watch.

oggi sei particolarmente poetico! Il cielo in una stanza....
Certo che il luogo non può non ispirare!
Bella anche idea di mostrare solo un pezzettino di cielo, però per fortuna c'è il WS che ci illumina sulla bellezza complessiva.
Ciao e buona domenica!

I like this synthesis!Minimal feeling but works very well with the window as a "door" to enother dimention,full colors.Nice work !

I remember Mario Andretti in his Lotus. He won that year the grand prix of Holland in Zandvoort. I must have heard the sound of his engine for I life about 5 km from the circuit and the wind often comes from that direction. I can’t combine this interesting picture easily with racing, but the link is interesting.

Hi Tomi - this one works very well, especially when we also get to see the wider view, it enables the viewer to appreciate the shot & maybe what you were thinking at the time (in terms of composition).
I've only heard of Andretti, I don't remember him. My earliest F1 memories would be of Keke Rosberg, Alain Prost & Niki Lauda in the very early 1980's!

This battered wall has seen many years of history, that is obvious. The exposure level is such that one can discern every pockmark, groove, crevice, and wear and tear. Yet through the barred window one beholds the beautiful blue sky of the heavens, promising hope for the future. This is indeed a dramatic shot. I also like the linear silver border in the foreground. Very fine work, Tomi. I am glad you posted this in colour. The WS is also well captured.

Maybe an horizontal view could be better in this case.
The sky through the windows was excellent.

Good shot of this window in the old wall. The composition is good with the off-centred placement of the window. The sky reflected in the glass looks very nice and works well contrasting with the other colours of the shot. Good work!

Almost a picture in a picture with the window as subject, the clouds and the blue sky are very well!
Have a nice day,

Great picture with great composition and light managment. I like to see the "decline" on the wall, but also the hope in the sky reflected in the window. Congratulations!

This old structure is well marked by the tooth of time..!
A pleasant composition, the textures in the wall is well captured...
Good reflection of the sky, telling the story a pleasant weather this day!

vedo che hai una scaletta per la presentazione delle immagini ben definita. Ci stai regalando i colori un po' per volta. Mi piace il taglio e i dettagli della foto e in primis il bellissimo contrasto tra il cielo azzurro e il grigio del muro.
Complimenti e stammi bene!
p.s.:se ce la faccio ad alzarmi il weekend prima di mezzogiorno, andró a Belvedur :o), perché non ci sono mai stato...

This is very impressive too, almost surrealistic. Excellent compo, framing and textures.

Hi Tomi, a facade in the original sens of the word. I love all those weathered textures and cracks in the masonry. The xposure was spot on. And wow Mario Andretti, I didn't know he was born here. Very pleasing work!
Have a nice weekend too.

Very interesting idea. The almost monotone nature of the wall and window sets a nice contrast to the blue and white sky behind. An interesting story can be told through this shot...one of sin and redemption, death and birth, good and bad...so to speak. A lovely contrast indeed. There is a little quality loss due to the severe crop...Very good idea and nicely displayed.

Hi Tomi. Outside looking in or inside looking out??? Great photo, well conceived and executed. Good composition and exposure. Thanks for sharing.
AmiBe (6042) 2007-03-08 16:40
good crop, good contrast between the blue sky and the grey wall.
In 1978 I was 1 year old... so, I don't remember Mario :)

I missed this one! You have captured excellent detail in this old wall. The view of the sky is perfect and it stands out well against the neutral colour of the wall. Interesting to see the wider facade in the WS too.

I'm a sucker for ruins and ancient buildings.
This one is a great example, and is made by the blue sky through the window frame.
All your photos are so varied and of a consistently high quality. You're going into my favourites!
