Well, it wouldn't be a trip to Tuscany without a picture if the obligatory clump of Cypress trees in the Val D'Orcia. These can be found along SS2 between San Quirico and Pienza. Heading toward Pienza, there is a small gravel turn off just after an elevated stretch of the road that allows a view of this Tuscan landmark.

Great shot in it's simplicity. It almost looks like a wallpaper for your desktop! Fantastic colours, exposure and it's very natural looking too. Thanks for showing!

I love the greens and cyans you are able to produce, punchy but looking natural. Fantastic cloud formation in the skies and the trees looking black stand out.

This is the new Windows wallpaper,right?:)
The photo is very good anyways but I bet you`d like to be in that place at a different time,maybe early morning or late afternoon...
Did you do something to keep the white clouds under control because the light was way to harsh?
If you did, you did it well.

This is a very beautiful landscape with fine sharpness and contrast of colours between the fine looking green grass of the foreground and the clouded blue sky in the background. I think that framing the image slightly to the right so that the trees were settled more on the thirds intersection wouldn't be a bad idea. But this is only my opinion and, in any case, not a major point. Good work!

Very simpel but beautiful with the soft lines of the hills and the verry fresh green. Lovely.

Great colors especially for the grassy hill, and interesting contrast with the very dark green of the cypress trees.
All the best,

Oh this is such a nice place captured so well. Everything around these cypresses is rolling, curvy and in weather like this they stand out so well that one is compelled to yank the steering wheel and stop.
