A view of the farm Catenazzone and in particular on the tower.Builth in the mid-1700s, is often served as a lookout point, being located above the valley of the Ticino, which looks towards the Piedmont.It's a place that to me is close to my heart because here was born and raised my mother and my grandparents lived until their death.
Una vista sulla cascina Catenazzone ed in particolare sulla torre.Costruita a metà del 1700,è servita spesso e volentieri come punto di avvistamento,essendo collocata al di sopra della valle del Ticino che guarda verso il Piemonte.E' un posto che a me sta molto a cuore in quanto qui è nata e cresciuta mia madre ed hanno vissuto i miei nonni fino alla loro morte.

Hi Luciano, This is a nice view of this farm Catenazzone. The tower and its surroundings look deserted but they are still pleasant to look at. Awesome colour contrasts with good light along with great details. Have a good weekend

A simple image but very effective.
Well composed. I like how the shrubs frame the old buildings.

Ciao Luciano, Nice view of this tower and two other buildings. I like some palms here, but why it is not green grass in fg? Is it already burnt by the sun? Superb sharpness and colours.

Ciao Caro Luciano,
A lovely bucolic scene creating a sense of timelessness and calm. Though simple, it is very well composed with contrasting textures and natural colours.
It will have strong memories for you.
Thank you for sharing this special place.

Beautiful sight over the farm and guarding tower, shown with excelent clear details. Home of your ancestors, well taken on photo, and much emotion you had expressed on your note, that's natural.
The FG yard with the hay field, gave a good depth on view.

like this! It is a perfect mix of natural and man made elements that seem to complement each other so beautifully. Effective and compelling.
Have a great Sunday - B.

e' molto bella la tua presentazione di questa cascina pittoresca ed attraente. La tua composizione in verticale e' elegante, mi piace lo spazio nel primo piano che fa' antecipazione ed accentua il mistero delle parzialmente viste strutture. Ottime tessiture, luce e colori. L' atmosfera creata traspira nostalgia. Che bello essere collegato ad un luogo delizioso ed importante come questo. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona domenica,

Good Morning Luciano - A shot that is dear to your heart and one for me which encapsulates so much that impressed me about the Italian rural locations. Traditional buildings still in use and wonderfully settled in the landscape.
Silvio1953 (140815) 2014-06-08 3:32
Ciao Luciano, gran bella cascina e splendida torre, poi i luoghi delle origini hanno sempre un fascino particolare, foto di ottima qualità, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui en utilisant le champs jaune à l'avant plan donne de la profondeur à la composition.L'ensemble est harmonieux et les couleurs douces sont très belles.
mirosu (16041) 2014-06-08 5:29
I like very much how you have isolated this attractive small house and tower in a grand and rewarding vertical frame. You have offered us lovely, clear details to study and appreciate the architecture. Your composition is nicely balanced and has an interesting and delightful sky backdrop. The light has a very agreeable consistency, the colours are beautiful. I especially like the effect of the strong color contrasts.
Very well done.
Noel_Byrne (30487) 2014-06-08 6:49
Beautiful view of this old farm, and how great that it still looks so well dating back so long. I doubt there are any farms in Ireland this old, so this is a fine piece of heritage. I like detail of the look out tower too, it's very intricate for such a structure. Nice comsition of the foreground too which makes it feel like we are approaching into the frame. I love these kinds of historic every day place.
Thanks for sharing.

a nice view of this special place to you. interesting how the shapes of the tower make it looks like a giant chimney.

Hello dear Luciano,
Another "topclass" capture in your gallery.
Very good composed.
papagolf21 (99698) 2014-06-08 11:23
Bonsoir, cher Luciano,
Il y a dans tes nouvelles photographies un effet de relief façon 3D très réussi.
L'image présentée est un pur régal pour les amateur d'architecture et de paysage.
photoray (13981) 2014-06-08 14:12
A worthy place to be born and live with family. My start was a Los Angeles County simple frame house.
Catenazzone farm looks even older than the 18th century in its medieval look, and the tower with the top arches is dramatic. And hopefully it will continue for many centuries more.
Thanks for sharing,
adramad (44846) 2014-06-08 14:26
A magnificent composition with this nice contrast in height and volumes of the different buildings, the tower looks magnificent with its considerable height, a nice place to live childhood memories, in a place with nature and with great serenity, Normal you feel very attached to the place, which is also beautiful.
An image to enjoy, with its colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Happy start to the week.
mvdisco (17794) 2014-06-08 16:00
Bonjour Luciano, Ciao,
Nice architecture de cette tour du milieu du 1700 s,
Joli point de vue et détails bucolique,
superbes couleurs et présentation,
bien fait...tous mes complimenti,
jcpix (13914) 2014-06-08 19:44
What can I say, you've served your family members well with this rendering of their locale. Amazing what a personal connection makes to the final result of a given photo. There's a heartfelt attachment to this old farmhouse and tower, and it's clear you've taken this with a conscious regard. Relatively simple, but very meaningful and well presented with your usual clarity, detail and solid composition for an optimal presentation. Thanks for sharing the personal association with this image. Have a great week ahead. All the best.

It must be in outskirt of Milan, very quiet and picturesque. It's a wonderful spring day to be enjoyed.

Mi sembra di ripetermi ma le tue foto hanno raggiunto una grandissima qualità.
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-06-09 10:19
first of all I have to say I really like how you process your images-excellent HDR,which makes the graphics of your images so eye-catching!
And concenring the composition itself-the scene works well with your vertical format(these different layers starting with the burned grass in the FG are superb!)
Have a nice evening
Tigerlily (3379) 2014-06-09 13:53
Beautifully processed image with wonderful colour. I love the shape of the cloud in the sky...it shows the movements...against the stillness on the land..
A very good evening to you.

eldancer1 (36343) 2014-06-10 10:15
Where your parents came from is an important part of your history and this looks like a very nice place to have originated. It's amazing to see buildings built long time ago and still standing. Nicely captured with good details. Well done, tfs.

It could be a painting from the XVIII century as the so outstanding composition and ama ing mediterrane tones.

Ciao Luciano. Your work reminds me of Clementi in the way both of you create the soft colours and delicate atmosphere. he never gave his secret away but I think he used a touch of grey in selective colours option. Nice effect, whatever you did, to make the photo look a little like a watercolour. Beautiful. Cioa. Klaudio. Forza Italia.
pierrefonds (65276) 2014-06-16 17:11
L'étendue du champ donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des bâtiments de la ferme. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
delpeoples (57278) 2014-06-21 3:20
Un bellissimo ricordo della tua famiglia. Immagino che la tua mamma e nonni abbiano vissuto tanti momenti di felicita, anche tristezza ma sopratutto, abbiano vissuto vite, ben-vite. Un dolcissimo omaggio alla tua famiglia.
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-06-21 4:06
is it HDR? Because it is very nicely done and although I am not the biggest fan of the technique I quite like the result achieved in here. Very subtle enhancement brings up the beauty of the place which looks very quiet and peaceful. I like the colors very much as well as very eye pleasing framing.
Thanks for sharing
All the best
abmdsudi (53047) 2014-07-01 8:17
An excellent architectural shot, simple, direct and perfectly exposed as the historic watch tower stands out so well against the surroundings and that blue sky. This looks so pleasant and i just love love the clean lines and sharp detail under that brilliant light. Nicely done shot, Congrats
Angshu (56750) 2014-07-11 0:09
The tower for sure is a attractive ad strong focal point! The HDR treatment you have done is welll done and makes this picture very attractive. The framing done with the foliage is also beautful. Reading you note I understand how nostalic you are about this place...
Have a good weekend!
