The village of Atrani, which is around the bend from Amalfi. Late afternoon light. The road between Salerno and Positano is very scenic and fun to drive... until a huge bus is encountered coming in the opposite direction. Surprisingly there is only a single other photo so far posted from Atrani on TE.
Lee systems 0.6 ND grad soft edge filter used.
The lower left corner is blurred because I removed an ugly concrete block which I could not avoid including in the frame.

The sun looks not so strong and that's give very nice lights.
I note also a vey good exposure balance with the shades.
I have done a WS with a difficult correction of the blurred corner.

looks like a postcard.
Guto (1738) 2008-03-20 18:11
Wow, it seems to be a very pleasant place. Your picture is clear, sharp and very contrasting with a very good composition. I wouldn't notice the blurred corner if you hadn't told us.

Tebrik ederim bu muhtesem fotograf için. Her bakimdan sahane bir kare kompozisyon, renkler ve netlik. En asagi 12 kez gördüm Amalfi Coast'i fakat hiç doyamadiigim bir manzara, bilhassa Positano'nun.
Maalesef, National Geographic Books' basicagi kitapda sizin verdiginiz (Amboise) fotografini kullanamiyacagiz. NGS kendi resimleri varmis, fakat çok tesekkür ederim verdiginiz müsadeye.
Selam ve saygilar,

Good to see post some shots these days Tan. I kind of missed those clean landscapes.
I like how the shot is divided in two with the light and shadows zones. The soft color tones of the buildings are nice.
Didi had a good idea with the left corner. The job is not perfect, but it is definitely something you could consider doing.
The grad filter is visible, but I kind of like the darker upper part of the sky.

Curiously, I only noticed the blur after reading the note. So, it is not that bad. Otherwise, it is a very nice picture of a wonderful place. Well done.

Superbe composition!Ce village est superbement situé et le cadrage de ta photo le met encore plus en valeur. Très beau travail!

Hi Tan... We went to this part of Italy in 2006 but we cant stop in this village because it was full of cars with tourist like ourself. I love this POV, not very usual to portrait one of the nicest areas of the world (of course by the mediterranean, where else?). Take care.
delic (6735) 2008-03-21 1:09
I'm not sure about the aspect ratio of this one but the composition is very pleasing otherwise. Your timing in capturing the wave was very good. Seems like you cropped the right-hand side, because the upper left corner looks soft, am I right? I would consider cropping the bottom to remove the blurred area (aka the ugly concrete). The use of two-stop neutral grad filter is obvious, the darkening in the sky looks unnatural. I don't think it was needed here anyway. Regards,
carper (96) 2008-03-21 1:09
Wauw, fantastic view Tan,
marvelous depth in the shot, great light andvery good composition, a photo to be proud on, have a very good day.
Floydian (30970) 2008-03-21 2:11
I like your crop, the tight framing which includes the foreground and the mountain in the back gives the picture a good balance. You could put more warm light on the buildings, but have to admit this also does not look bad a t all.
The bottom section does not disturb me because it's easy to fix.
Nice work, very powerful composed and framed.

Tan Bey merhaba,
Boyle bir guzelligin hakkini fazlasiyla vermissiniz,
anes_lc (14968) 2008-03-21 2:34
stunning view ,this place must be one of the most beautiful in the world :)
Tue (42216) 2008-03-21 3:31
Great photo from this village, well placed on the left hand side with a nice view along the coastline towards the mountain in the background. You had great weather with a fine light and a nice blue sky. Thanks for sharing!
PixelTerror (0) 2008-03-21 3:56
Here again a lovely image at the right time of the day to egt exceleltn light on the buildings and a vey nice succession of curves along the coast
Have a nice day JY
dkeus31 (27735) 2008-03-21 4:01
very nice image, I like the line formed by the shore leading the view to the building.
Gerrit (52165) 2008-03-21 4:30
Man, you realy can choose your POV, This is another fantastic one. Great light and composition. Good broad foreground with the typical vulcanic black sand.
p.s. Is Amafia just a whriting mistake (Amalfia) or referring to the Mafia (that here is called Chomorra)
sleon (9402) 2008-03-21 4:58
The filter here gives a subtle and natural enhancement and the square format suits well the subject to give a wonderful sense of space. A really magnificent Italian scene.
delkoo (68) 2008-03-21 5:20
I definitely like your POV in this shot ... it provides such good perspective.
i like this view, nicely spotted and well executed.
macondo (19780) 2008-03-21 5:30
Very fine shot from a well chosen viewpoint. You have used the natural curve of the shoreline and the line of the viaduct to create a strong perspective, enhanced by the second headland in the background, giving the shot depth and filling out the right side of the horizon. The white foam along the shore leads the eye, and the town's remarkable buildings emerge into the sunlight to stunning effect. I can see how cropping instead of cloning the intrusive block of concrete would have destroyed the curve of the wave at that point, so it was a good choice.
I am intrigued by the possibility of using a ND filter together with a CP filter. Anyway, the result is marvellous.
Cormac (26565) 2008-03-21 6:53
Great shot! I like the foreground especially, with the delicate curve of the shore, and the nice reflection off the wet sand. This seems to give the photo a huge feelig of depth or three dimensions. Beautiful!
lestans (17168) 2008-03-21 9:21
the curve of the shore captures the eye to look at the wonderful backgroud.
Sea and sky are so nice.
Well used square shape.
Very good work!!
jonathan_hart (21276) 2008-03-21 11:34
great clarity, fantastic wide view, well composed, excellent light and natural colours, this shot do justice to the beauty of this place
gilou530 (34) 2008-03-21 15:16
une vue de ce village qui je pense tu nous a présente en vue plongeante, belle couleur et le grand angle donne un bon POV
guillaumejm (0) 2008-03-21 15:23
Great place. perfect sky with clouds looking to be in 3 dimensions. the depth is great too.
chpp (4283) 2008-03-21 16:48
thius is a beautiful shot, grea POV and composition, good depth, natural colours and the balance of light and shadows is very good.
I like the details in the buildings

have a nice weekend

belle photo de cette jolie plage avec ce village accrochés au rochers,
Ces voitures garrées sous cet espèce de pont a arches semblent etre des petittes fourmis, j' espère que la grosse vague, ' la sélérate ' ne va pas arriver sinon aie aie pour ces autos.
Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté de cet endroit.
Belle vue sous un bon POV.
flory (4848) 2008-03-23 3:33
it's very clearly for me that you know how to frame an image.nicely divided this one with good light for the buildings..ufff and love this clean water;)
nes7 (735) 2008-03-23 4:43
Bakış noktası çok iyi. Manzara mükemmel görünüyor. Deniz, gökyüzü, kayalıklar, karşıdaki yarımada güzel bir bütünlük sergiliyor... Denizin hemen kenarındaki mimari yapılarda çok hoş. Seyri hoş bir sunum...
leo61 (0) 2008-03-23 4:48
Looks like you were standing on a ladder...
Great POV and wonderful light at this part of the village.
Great depth ,caused by this little foaming wave.
Greg1949 (9011) 2008-03-23 18:02
Tan, you have a good eye and good skills. I often see shots like this one here but I very seldom am able to capture them this well. Colorful and detailed and a fantastic composition.
coco (30439) 2008-03-23 23:49
What a great view and landscape. THis is a winner and I love it.
This is an almost square format and I love it.
giorgimer (34941) 2008-03-25 1:05
wow! Great view! Excellent mix of nature and architecture, very good DOF.
Ninello52 (7576) 2008-04-10 1:56
Mi fa piacere che un gran fotografo giramondo come te sappia apprezzare anche i nostri paesaggi. Questa ad esempio offre un buon POV, e una buona profondità, bellissimo il mare e la montagna, ombrata dalle nuvole, sul fondo.
donluicu (24724) 2009-03-02 13:34
nice square format
ps: are you coming back to Europe?
