This is a nicely composed shot, the use of the vertical format works well here. The lighting and colors are fine and the photo has excellent sharpness.

Excellently composed photo in very good light. I like the view through the arch. The vertical arrangement showing the staircase and the balcony railing is very good.
Very well done.

Hello Silvio - This is a particularly attractive entrance with both the arched entry and stairs inviting us to enter the scene. A neat vertical composition with good detail and attractive soft colours.

Excellnt framing of this castle, the choice of a close up is certainly original and emphases the size of the site. I love the arch opening on the landscape. The textures are very beautiful.

This detail of architecture is fantastic, so many imagination had the architects, romantic corner with an arch, stairs and a balcony, very well captured

Another beautiful view, the depth afforded by the lead through the arch is superb, while the steps create height and lead the eye in another direction. Very nice diagonal of blue across the top of the scene too, the color is a compliment to the grey and brown tones.
Have a nice weekend

Interesting interior, rock block and mortar construction from the medieval period, with elegant arches, and the stairway leading to the open beam balcony.
Another stimulus for meandering within,

un bel gioco di archi e ....modernità.
Bella inquadratura, mi piace molto la parte alta con le architetture in legno.
Peccato oggi non hai potuto usufruire del tuo carroattrezzi, altrimenti avresti fatto una strage.

Fascinating and original architecture, I really like the POV captured with the game of bows and the bottom of the stairs, towards that wide wooden balcony.
Good variety of colors.
Magnificent much sharpness as brightness.
Well done, my friend.

bonne lumière et netteté, très belle présentation
ourania (44926) 2014-08-12 8:56
una composizione ben equilibrata e solida, ben aggiustata al carattere dell' architettura. Mi piace molto il carattere tanto privato che pubblico dell' architettura. Ottima la nitidezza , molto piacevoli i colori e l' atmosfera tranquilla con qualche aggiunta della vita quotidiana contemporanea. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

The architecture is very interesting. been successful in this environment composition. stairs on the right side, where it should be.
danos (97377) 2014-08-13 0:32
nice the view of this section of the Castello di Protte,with the stairs to lead on the first floor and the open gate to communicates with the other houses of the area.Excellent the light and the colour management of the image.
jacquest (18927) 2014-08-13 10:53
Your angle of view is well chosen with two focal points as the stairway leads the eye to the balcony and the distance through the arch creates deepness and a view on the tree. The light is very good and details are sharp and interesting.
pierrefonds (65774) 2014-08-14 15:40
The arch is leading my eye toward the tree which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of this section of the castello. The good luminosity is ging nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.
abmdsudi (53565) 2014-08-15 8:10
Beautiful capture with viewer gets to concentrate on the amazing details from top to bottom of medieval structures with your exquisite work and pleased with this beautiful composition. The shooting angle offers the necessary depth and love how the fg makes the eyes travel to into the distant. Pin sharp with fine clarity, lighting and glorious colors. Wonderful capture, TFS

interesting view and place. A few themes in one. I like the old stairs, balcony and gate. Good vertical composition.
Have a nice WE.
ikeharel (70589) 2014-08-16 2:05
The wooden balcony is most attractive element in this photo, built above the arch and the stairsleadng to added sense of height to the image.
Clarity and depth through well collected.

Hi Silvio, What a corner....I like the stairway leading up to the rooftop. The beams and the design of the roof look very similar to those I saw in China while I visited there....I like the oriental touch of this roof.
The arch gate and the motor are the treats to the scenery. Good light and tones with details. Regards

un posto assai tranquillo con grande serenita che spunta dalla tua stupenda foto e i colori sono cosi sobrio e fantastico compo.
aliabazari (16168) 2014-08-18 22:05
A good sign of this corridor and old houses. Good composition and exposure. Nicely done. Regards ...
ChrisJ (113111) 2014-08-21 1:54
The arch makes a fine focal point and allows the view a glimpse of the bg scene. The steps at right add fine lead in lines to the upper balcony and deep linear perspective. Excellent sharpness and natural looking pastel colours. The parked motor cycle makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!
lestans (17168) 2014-08-22 15:01
Ciao caro Silvio
I toni scatti di architetture tradizionali sono sempre perfetti e godibili.
Buon week end, io lo passerò in aereo perché vado lontano
alvaraalto (11878) 2014-08-23 5:32
Interesting combination of some different elements. The gate, the stair to the entrance and the balcony above.
Altogether an attractive composition.
