Ciao, Silvio, my neighbor again!
Impressive composition with the play of the colors. I like this transfer from blue to white through yellow. Amazing combination! I also like this perfect quality, fine DoF!
Have a nice evening!

Hello Silvio - This is a fabulous rural shot. I love trees and here we see a beauty located next to the olive groves and framing the old building. The tree has taken on seasonal colours which the side light highlights attractively. Thanks for noting the location, if we have time we can make a trip here in May. warm regards Rosemary

A very attractive autumnal composition, nicely framed and benefiting from lovely light and colours. The path nicely draws us in toward the fine focal point offered by the sunlit wall of the building. I like also the dappled shade under that beautiful tree. Technical quality is superb, thanks for sharing.

What a superb shot of this giant old tree! Looks like the tree has leaves made of gold foils.
Excellent light colors and clarity. I like the tree being illuminated by the light on one side. The village road gives depth to the picture. Amazing village scene I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful composition, where the protagonist is definitely beautiful oak, its shape and size is majestic, the road gives a nice DOF to the composition, and invites a walk by it.
A very good natural color.
The brightness is very good, as is the sharpness.
Well done. I love my congratulations.
Have a good day.

You have a way of making the rather ordinary look so extraordinary. Really lovely,

anche questo albero è magnifico, bellissimo sia il tronco che la chioma.
Mi piacerebbe sapere perchè è più sviluppata a destra che a sinistra.

Bellissimo esemplare, stupendi a anche i colori autunnali, ottima la compo con la stradina al centro e il casolare.
Sarebbe interessante vedere la stessa immagine nelle varie stagioni, ma tu le avrai già riprese

J'aime beaucoup ce petit coin de ton merveilleux pays. Une joie pour les photographes.
Le regard suit naturellement le petit sentier dans l'image, se baisse pour passer sous les branches de l'arbre.
Une belle image profonde et nette sous une lumière merveilleuse.

I returned to Trekearth after a long time and was greeted by your superb composition. Fantastic framing, colour and clarity. The tree so beautiful against the blue and white sky. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

I'm impressed by the age of that oak Silvio, to reach the age of 250 years old it avoids fires, peaceful countryside path
