tu me fais plaisir avec un tel ciel, je viens de passer quelques minutes devant à l'admirer. Le polarisant a contribué à contraster un peu toute cette surface et renforcer probablement la couleur de la prairie.
Très belle petite touches de jaunes avec ces milliers de petites fleurs.
Parfaite exposition, la lumière est parfaite.
Excellent week-end à toi.

Hi Fernando, It is a little surprise to see your photo not near the water, as I have been used to it :D
Nice shot with clear contrast of the green course and the blue sky with white clouds. Good to include the golfers in the course.

really spring, beautiful landscape, great sky. I like the colours and composition also. Nice place. Well done.

Beautiful colors, great composition, light and excellent POV! Great work!

Just before I saw this lovely picture of you I rewarded this picture of elihesamian. It’s amazing that two pictures with the seem element can have such a totally different atmosphere. Very interesting for me to experience.
elihesamian (26149) 2006-04-08 15:12
a great high sky you show us that is very beautiful and attractive and the green ground and the poeple are nice elements here,the undulating ground with tonalities of yelow is very beautiful here,
also a great perspective and depth you have here,very well composed and I like it a lot,Fernando,

That is the configuration of a sea side golf course, built on sand and left quite natural to play like in the ancient and royal from Saint Andrew ( I am a golf player, a bad one:-))
This is well buit a picture and also a nice natural view for a golf.
I like it
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-04-08 19:04
Hoje uma composição com muito e belo céu, do qual gosto muito. No chão um belo colorido, e contrastes acentuados pela luminosidade ou falta dela causado pela nuvens.
Gostei muito desta composição.

Every time I come to TE I get amazed by your photos. This one is just beautiful, the green field and the awesome sky…the big clouds look so soft almost occupying every empty “space”.
Enjoy your day :)
Gerrit (46794) 2006-04-08 21:49
a very lovely scenery with the sunbading rolling hills with yellow flowers under the withe and blue of the sky.
thanks and regards, Gerrit
singuanti (15250) 2006-04-08 22:12
Hey Fernando. What a fine capture with you Evolt! I'm glad you had the polarizer on for this one. That's a whopping sky you captured. tfs Fernando!
pitai (3985) 2006-04-08 22:19
Hello Fernando, first of all thanks you for the dedication. I am really overwhelmed. I am kind of short of time for the TE right now. I will try to catch up soon. About your picture, as always splendid colors. What I like the most is the depth. The view is fantastic, with some touches of sun lights and small yellow flowers. You can really feel the spring. Very nice. Thanks again and have a nice Sunday. Gabriel
pablominto (53744) 2006-04-09 3:35
Colourful golf course... I like the lovely yellow carpet of spring!
Fine composition, a good thing they were wearing red shirts to give a fine colour contrast!
And a beautiful sky, my friend! Please continue giving us spring images, we haven't quite come that far in my place...
jinju (14265) 2006-04-09 4:10
what a nice scene here. I like the sort of minimalistic "Windows" landscape which you chose to pepper with people. Good wide angle photo.
ChrisJ (95734) 2006-04-09 4:10
I like the simple composition, of green, white, & blue. Good sharpness, color & tonal range. Parabens & obrigado!
efigesta (12188) 2006-04-09 6:59
lindo contraste de cores entre o verdejante e o ceu azul, muito bem elaborada esta composição e mais uma vez pelas suas palavras na nota sempre interessantes e sempre apelativas, desta vez para o gabriel que tem efetivamente um portfolio muito interessante
Giorgio (11279) 2006-04-09 8:12
- Very nice picture, colour is splendid, surely the polarizer filter still adds in this, the key of yellow brought by the small flowers is very pretty, the threatening sky contrasts with the rest of picture, well done!
TeresaT (10806) 2006-04-09 11:05
Mais uma composição bastante simples, com poucos elementos mas que resultou muito bem.
fez muito bem em ter dado primazia ao céu porque de facto está lindissimo.
Bom contraste e luminosidade.
jafadabret (56501) 2006-04-09 12:13
Un vrai temps de printemps, Fernando, avec un ciel merveilleux et un gazon parsemé de fleurs sous une lumière d'un soleil qui passe à travers quelques nuages.
Une bonne leçon d'optimisme !
emjleclercq (15780) 2006-04-09 12:25
You have a very nice sky, with vapourous clouds, which make a very good contrast with the sharpness of the green golf course. A very interesting and complete note again.
All the best,
riclopes (35577) 2006-04-09 13:29
Mais uma vez me desperta a vontade de experimentar este desporto de contacto directo com a natureza. Ainda por cima nesta altura, em que os campos estão a ficar cheios de cor. Também é mais uma prova da qualidade da sua nova E-500. A composição é lindíssima, com o fantástico céu enublado a dominar a imagem e o 'tapete' verde, pontilhado por pintas amarelas (combinação perfeita de cores complementares) a rematar o nosso ponto de vista. As imagens em ws também são muitíssimo boas e imagino a sua dificuladade em escolher para postar. A habitual excelente nota e homenagem a membros, reforçando o sentimento de partilha que eu tanto aprecio. Muitos parabéns e obrigado!
Um bom final de fim de semana,
carper (96) 2006-04-09 13:31
very nice one Fernando,
the good point of view, the good details with the nice colours and the good sky and the well taking composition, good job Fernando.
Emile (20350) 2006-04-09 15:03
As you know my hobby is to play golf, I love to see pictures with golf courses. At this moment there are celebrating the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, USA. The most important golf tournament in that country. Hope you are able to see it in your TV at home.
The picture is very good, nice to see the flowers in the fairway surrounding the green.
Well captured, good POV. Composition is great, good colours and sharpness.
Well done. TFS.
Fixfocus (9385) 2006-04-09 16:12
Amazing sky and the low placed horizon makes this really visible.Beautiful contrast between the meadow and the sky and the included golf players add life and colorspots.
huynt (5079) 2006-04-09 21:02
I like your wonderful compsition. I also have a similar in VN. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes. huy
jhm (137518) 2006-04-10 2:06
I'm back after three day, I can see the first spring flower in grass, with the lovely clouds to the sky, the people are in summer attire, have to the temperature are very nice.
Lovely picture of the golf environment.
Didi (56001) 2006-04-10 5:31
Somebody in the foreground, thats ok; it's gice an interest point with the small path.
You put the horizon down to give more importance to the sky.
feather (51130) 2006-04-10 6:09
The polariser has certainly given the wonderful sky some more ooomph. Lovely foreground pattern too with the yellow flowers in the green grass and a nice detail of the golfers. I also like both of the WS photos. I'm not a golfer but they add a lot of interest to the photos here.
papagolf21 (84628) 2006-04-10 6:11
Bonjour mon ami Fernando,
Ah ! ce ciel, il semble vouloir dévorer la terre ! Que dame Nature sait de montrer belle, encore faut-il savoir la saisir au bon moment pour lui rendre hommage ; c'est que vous avez fait avec talent, cher Fernando.
bertolucci (13358) 2006-04-10 11:36
Hi Fernando, you reserved quite a lot of space for the polarized sky here and the resulting deep blue hues work wonders with the golf course in its fresh green and yellow spring colours. The golf players work very well as accent. Very good work and together with the two WS pictures we het a good idea of the surroundings and the player. Very good work with impressive colour contrasts.
Have nice week
anavazao (5592) 2006-04-11 11:03
bonita vista toda verde e amarela! Bonitas cores, luz, composição....
Rinie_Hoff (9340) 2006-04-12 2:36
Hello Fernando, promise us to leave these clouds behind when you come to the Netherlands, OK?
Lovely colors with those yellow flowers in the green grass, overall a very pleasing picture to look at with a beautiful sky!
See you soon, I'm really looking forward to it.
john_c (24662) 2006-04-12 10:29
Well composed and springlike. The lighting is very fine, with good shadow effects. I like the artistic way you have framed this, with the large sky and the path on the right leading to the golfers. A great capture, Fernando, and a fine note.
Jribeirosantos (1916) 2006-04-18 5:40
Olá Fernando :)
