(-- oops I got confused with the "repost" and "workshop" features, so here is the real final version of this photo --)
When you are granted access to the castle of Baux de Provence (7 euros fee), you have the privilege of dominating the plains filled with vineyards and olive trees.
I chose to keep a large amount of sky because of those clouds.
This is typically the type of image where you struggle to get acceptable sharpness: small detailed green foliage in the distance, 10mm focal length, only 8Mpix...
Shot RAW, to get maximum details in the shadows while avoiding burning the nice clouds :)
Developped with Silkypix.
REPOST: increased contrast thanks to PixelTerror remark , and and reframed (rule of thirds) thanks to Salocin51 comment.
