Simply a shot from my window. My interest was been attracted from the contrast between the top of the white birch (directly in the light of the sunset), the dark of the water of the river and the many lines of the shadows.
In my workshop you can see the same scene but at the morning: more saturation, better definition but completely different atmosphere. I find it interesting, i hope you also.

Quando vedo una tua fotografia non posso fare a meno di ammirarla, anche questa, a parte la prospettiva interessantissima e quasi indecifrabile, presenta un equilibrio di colori che denotano una grandissima sensibilità, bravissimo!

belle immagini entrambe, sia l'originale che il workshop.
Questa sembra un misto di pittura impressionista e fotografia.....

Beautiful Giorgio! Like an impressionist painting. I like the composition very much, especially the strong horizontal line of the river.

The first thing I must think on by seeing this is a van Gogh, and that meaning as a compliment, very nice photo, great colours and a fine angle you took it, very good job Giorgio.

Very nice one George ! The thumbs looks like a draw, a paint. I love the way you croped here, and the power of flatness. Very well made, one of my favorites !

Ciao Giorgio, molto ben riuscite tutte e due le foto e come hanno detto già in molti sembra veramente un quadro impressionista! Vedo che abiti in mezzo al verde, spero per te che non ti taglino gli alberi! Potresti farne una serie ;-) Molto bella anche l'acqua con lew alghe, è un ruscello? Aspetto la continuazione...

Very nice perspective and depth, Giorgio, an excellent view from your window... :-)
I like the colours, detail, sharpness, light and shadows. I also find it very interesting, good work!

Very nicely spotted - the fine mix of colours works relaxing - amazing to watch the difference the light makes at your workshop - thanks Giorgio, for sharing this - reminds me of a shot never posted.
You have lovely views, from your window.

Very nice and colorful composition. You've managed to capture both the beautiful light and contrasts and the nice mood of the scene.The crop is perfect and I like the textures of the different parts of the picture. Great shot !

Wow! This is truly an Impressionist painting, Giorgio. You have produced a wonderful effect here. I like too the definition on the trunk of the birch and of course the wonderful colour in the water. The soft colours and depth are a feast for the eyes. Well done.
