''Perched on a rocky hill which overlooks the valley of Giudicarie outward, the Stenico castle is a symbol of the power of the bishops of Trent in this region.
Fortification of early medieval origin, since the thirteenth century it became their property, the summer residence and seat of the Captain, the officer who was entrusted with the administration of the territory.
Captains and the prince-bishops have occurred through the centuries, changing, altering, embellishing the castle, which today is a robust and composite.
Outside looks like a medieval fortress and imposing severe, while the interior frescoes and sculptured decorations give the appearance of an elegant home. The most significant date back to the principalities of Johannes Hinderbach, caring humanist, and Bernardo Cles, a man of power and refined patron.
The rooms are elegantly furnished with fine furniture today, carved and inlaid, fine paintings, weapons and firearms, antique tools for everyday use copper, iron and wood, from the collections of the Castle of Buonconsiglio.''

looking at this, there is a wide range of greens, therefore the white/beige structures really stand out against it.
the bottom half of the photo is better than the top half, and perhaps even leaving out the top portion would have been an option? ...just my opinion :)
still, its a pleasing scene, lots of charm, elegance, and calming atmosphere.
enjoy your day

Wonderful setting of this castle. From there it controls the whole valley, the beautifully forested mountain slopes and the vineyard on the FG.
On a sunny day like that one, the light creates so many splendid green tones in the nature.
Excellent point of view and composition.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Alessandro, mi piace questa immagine buona e piuttosto interessante di questo castello, circondato da vegetazione lussureggiante e da uno splendido vigneto, buona nitidezza e profondità, una luce molto bella e interessante. Lavoro molto buono e bello il mio amico, le mie congratulazioni. Buon pomeriggio e felice inizio alla settimana. TFS.
I migliori auguri.

Awesome view, Alessandro! Verdant hills filled with light, fantastic feeling of space and air. The castle itself seems a bit out of focus though.

bello il castello, ma molto bello tutto il contesto.
Questa costruzione bianca contrasta nel verde della splendida vallata trentina.

lively composition of lighting, colors and positioning. The white castle is really pleasant to be seen, surrounded by green trees. The mountains and the vines are really wonderful.
adramad (27556) 2012-04-10 7:47
Superb composition with this wonderful picture, I like the POV that shows this first hill with terraced vineyards and the abundant trees behind the image of the castle in the top, nice background with the other two lines of mountains.
Have a great evening.

Un point de vue aérien magnifique qui met en valeur ce château perché entouré de verdure. Le relief montagneux agrémente parfaitement cette vue.

Good Morning Alessandro,
This certainly has a most formidable location but would also have been easy to defend!
Your pov defines its elevated position whilst the b/g gives a strong context as well as creating a fine backcloth, against which the castle stands out.
Have a good day,

Un paysage magnifique de forêts, de montagnes et de vignes autour du château qui surplombe le paysage, bonne lumière , très belle présentation

I like the composition of gorgeous green valley from fantastic pov. The castle looks so impressive on the hill top surrounded by such peaceful landscape. Management of colors, sharpness, clarity, contrast against the beautiful blue sky and I like the backdrop moutains which is marvelous. Perfectly well done.
Awesome work, TFS

une photo qui montre bien les plans des montagnes, de moins en moins colorées en allant vers le background.
J'aime beaucoup la force des verts de l'avant plan.
Un POV de choix pour bien montrer ce château escarpé.
mkamionka (24559) 2012-04-17 10:48
beautiful place. You have chosen a perfect POV to emphasize the amazing location of this castle.
I like the all green scenery with the hills making pleasant landscape.
Very inviting to visit this wonderful place,
