Just an example of architecture in Dubrovnik, simple and "strong" houses, hiding the secrets of each family.. :)
I would have it rather without that shade but sun doesnt care about our foto-wishes from time to time.. :)

Hi Vernika, i think that the shadows was a great part of the image, for the strong cotnrast between the upper blue and full of light side and the dark facade on the down.

I like the sunlight on the upper edge of the house from the right side and it's good perspective. Impressive textures on the walls and magnificent contrast,

usualy, this large shadow could be a probleme. Here it's so important and you composed with it. I think it's nice and it give something more graphical to the part of the houses in the light.
Have a nice day

Very, very nice shot! I like the way you used the shadow in this to give a sense of depth and space to what would otherwise be a blank wall. Strong, simple composition, just like you usually do! Well done.

a good architectual study. Theres a fantastic contrast here between the light and dark parts. The photo has a really nice look, I wasnt expecting the shadow to actually be a positive here from the thumbnail. Its quite good and not too dark which I was afraid it would be.

Not just an example, but a great example of arquitecture photo. Beautiful composition, excellent perspective and amazing colours. The shadow adds another interesting element in the picture. Very well done!

Nice of you to put that typical architecture in the picture. The angle and such is good, but as you say it already yourself the shade is not an improvement (to my opinion). Do continue; I like the croatian series a lot.

A simple but interesting architectural study, Vero. I think what makes it cool is the presence of the shadow that tries to hide - but doesn't succeed completely in doing so - the rich textural detail that is present in the stonework of the façade. Framing-wise, you have a nice balance between the space occupied by the triangularly-topped houses and the fine blue sky. Nice shot.

Dear Veronika ... I always wanted to come back to this one because it has its own style and beauty. I do like the shadow which makes it special and gives the secret touch. By the way, you are a great great writer ... you always make me smile .... so may we see you as an author some day? Best regards. Barbara.

Zdravo Veronika. A strong composition with dramatic light and sharly etched details. Stunning sky.Effective contrasts between shaded and sunlit worlds. Pozdrav. Klaudio.
