Une composition verticale très avantageuse dans ce genre de prise de vue. En arrière plan , l'édifice religieux ressort bien sur ce fond de ciel bleu clair et l'avant plan très coloré donne de la vie à l'image

A fine composition of this delightful corner where we can see the chilli peppers hanging out to dry in the Southern Italian sun. The seat is nicely placed to sit out in the warm sunlight. Well composed with good colours and sharpness.
