Hi Silvio, Lovely settlement on the top of the plateau and the rows of the different colour flowers create this awesome scenery. The numerous height of mountains framed the houses well with the endless forests around them. I like the soft light and the tones. It absolutely worth my 2 points. Best regards

The length of the flower fields is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the buildings of the village. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

una "cottaemangiata" del tuo feudo.
Bella la base multicolore sotto al Castelluccio, sembra che non eri proprio solo, ma la tua idea è stata scopiazzata da altre 2 o 3 persone almeno....
Ottimo scatto, come sempre, in questo genere hai pochi rivali.

well done for spotting this lovely village and choosing such a good POV to take picture of it. The meadow with flowers in the foreground adds so much beauty to this image! I like this landscape a lot and the fact that the little town seems to be in perfect harmony with the nature around it.
Nice quality work!
Thanks for sharing

che bella la citta in cima della collina, spicca meravigliosamente e con ottima chiarezza nella luce brillante. Mi piace il modo in cui la circondano le ombre e la foresta. C'e gradevole profondita' ed armonia nella tua composizione, i colori sono superbi. I prati colorati sembrano un arcobaleno steso a terra. Complimenti e grazie!

I like the rainbow of colourful fg flowers and the saturation. They contrast superbly against the olive green bg hillside. The hilltop village makes a wonderful focal point, and the dark trees top left add a welcome graphic element. Tfs!

Lovely composition here with the inclusion of the rainbow fields in the foreground. The off center placement of the village gives the photo a nice sense of direction. The lighting is fine as is the photo's color and sharpness.
macjake (73059) 2014-07-08 9:46
here is another one of your classic Silvio photos :)
nice to see the town sitting up top on the hill, and the really tall steep slopes in the bg too.
attractive colors in the lower fg to give it more life and interest.
enjoy your day

The place and picture are really amazing. However, a better sharpness required here for making it brilliant. Colors blend well, nice POV.
