Fabio very good colors . I like the flowers at front. It makes the composition very intresting.

I like the POV and angle but I find the light a bit too harsh. Still a nice picture with the flowers contrasting with the rest of the picture.

ottima foto! veramente ben composta e scattata, con una bella "composizione floreale" in basso e il mulino che si staglia verso l'alto. ottimo anche il controllo della luce e dei colori nonostante avessi il sole praticamente dentro l'obbiettivo!

Ah, yet another windmill ;-))
I like (and admire) here the excellent details revealed for a shot against the sun, so that we can see the style of this one is definitely southern and somewhat related to Portugal, the flowers are nice too for adding a touch of color.
Have a nice day,

Nice composition and POV. I like the red flowers in the foreground to contrast again the blue. Beautiful colours and detail.

Excellent composition Fabio, with a shot against the sun. Very good light management and great colours. The point of view is wonderful. Splendid work!

A nice distingished windmill between nice sky and flowers. Well done.

Excellent composition Fabio. I like your POV looking up at the windmill. Good work to show so much detail here despite shooting into the sun.

Hi Fabio - superb compo - great DOF and great control of the light -
You are a master, Fabio

Ciao Fabio, mio caro Don Chisciotte. Con questo mulino a vento non hai potuto avere problemi se no di digestione, mangiando troppo in osteria ;))
I colori sono bellissimi e il mulino in contro luce ti e' riuscito decisamente bene. Mi piace questo "POV" da uno che si sta arrampicando sul muro e poi rimane nascosto tra i fiori a guardare sul terrazzo del proprio vicino. AAA+++

Hey Fabio, great angle looking up at the windmill! Does it still turn? Because this exact same photo with one of th esails eclipsing the sun woudl be great!
That said though this one is certainly a good photo! Its not your typical angle and I think that makes it so much better. You like these low down photos dont you, and I think you like chairs too, as 3 of your last 4 shots have had chairs in :P
My girlfriend is going to Arizona in october with her job so I was showing her some of your photos from the area, she was very impressed, especially she liked Spaghetti Western POV, but ive already commented on that so I thought I woudl let you know here!

good clear picture fabio good POV and detail i like the flowers inthe front
ChrisJ (107039) 2005-08-31 3:58
I like the graphism of the wind mill sails against the sky & the splash of color from the foreground flowers. Bellisimo!
everlasting (14704) 2005-08-31 4:47
I first thought that the windmill was had started again:)
The compsition is nice, with the flowers in the foreground and POV is imaginative. Shame the sun was so high for you, but you can never have everything.

POV et cadrage très bien choisis.
Il est souvent délicat de photographier en direction du soleil mais là, c'est pas mal réussi.
Le présence de cs fleurs rouges intense au bas de l'image ajoute une touche naturelle et bien colorée, un élément que tu as bien fait d'inclure.

An interesting shot, with good colour and contrast. Although the lighting is a little intense, it conveys a sense of the heat of the day and the wonderful sky. The framing and cropping effectively present the foreground in dynamic fashion. Well done, Fabio.

Very nicely shown wings of a windmill - very low point of view makes this object huge! Interesting idea with putting the sun into the cadre. I like the color of sky and pretty good contrast for a photo taken against the sun. Good job!
igorb (758) 2005-09-03 6:02
Very, very nice colors, Fabio and excellent composition.Clear and sharp.
Xalkida (11744) 2005-09-08 4:32
Fantastic photo. The opposite sun works very fine here. I love the colors. Very nice.
jafadabret (56501) 2005-11-05 15:46
Fabio, ce cliché est très aérien et léger comme une brise qui aurait mis ce moulin en action ; la lumière venant de face est peut-être un peu forte.
shiva_sg (600) 2006-02-22 4:37
Sharp picture again, beautiful composition. The colors are good and nice POV. I like the dense clouds on one side and clear sky on the other side with bright sun. And this is a very different windmill. TFS.

Extremely lovely, great angle on it too.
