Bjelila is a tiny village on the Lustica Peninsula on the southern side of the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska). No-one was around on the sleepy October Sunday when we stopped by. But there were the sounds of singing and general Sunday lunchtime merriment from a house just to the right of the place where I made this photograph.

A nice framing to highlight the beautiful architecture of these old houses, so typical to this part of Europe. Nice light !

An interesting note - what a wonderful feeling that must have been wandering around this idyllic place on a peaceful Sunday morning.
Your photograph is superb and really does give the impression of peace and tranquillity. Not a soul in sight and the calm water, the crumbling buildings with their collapsing roofs and the wild natural gardens seem at peace with the World.
A fine composition, the near water leading the eye gently into the frame and the buildings nicely and pleasingly arranged. Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

Nice composition, the only thing I can criticize is the slight leaning toward right, which is mainly visible on the building on the left.

A well composed picture with interesting houses and a good depth with that foreground plant. A peaceful view and fine reflections in the water.

the light here is lovely, not sharp but illuminating the buildings in such a way that the forms are well presented. The sky has an attractive colour which contrasts with the soft warmth of the stone buildings. The composition is excellent. My compliments!

A very attractive location for the house at the end of the canal; the house nicely framed as the main object of interest.

Without being able to hear the singing, there is a great sense of tranquillity in your photograph. The composition is very well conceived, the cactus for f/g interest, the waterway guiding, the houses having a good connection and the reflection adding that special, little detail.
See you soon,

Hello again Will,
Beautiful clarity and wonderful colour, I especially like the sky..

A neatly composed shot of a beautiful little rustic village in contrast to the peaceful surroundings just catching the eye strongly there. You have great eye in identifying the opportunity and successfully exploited the potential to max impact. Lovely how the waterway actually grabbed the wide view of this charming little sight very well. It's pleasantly exposed and coloured to the best. Well done, Congrats

An interesting scene you have found for taking this shot. The river created a great composition with leading us directly to the building in the background. Very well seen and done.
Have a nice day!

Seems a beautiful and calm place and maybe not overcrowded with tourists yet! I like our composition and the little canals, it must be really nice to follow them on those little boats. I also like the details of this house in ruins and the agave in foreground. Good colours also!
