This is the Church of S. Pedro, situated in the countryside, a few kms far from Borba. Surrounded by vineyards, it's now a ruin but it's still magnificent outside and inside. Above the door we can still find an inscription with the date it was started: 1570.
The place is magnificent.

Le sentier nous conduit naturellement au sommet de la colline vers les ruines de cette église avec son toit couvert de végétation. Beau point de vue avec une bonne profondeur d'image. Bien fait.

L'église est idéalement placée à un point fort de l'image et les rangs de vignes conduisent notre regard vers elle. Très bonne photo.

Like this country scape a lot! The path leads us directly to this old ruined building and build the depth so perfectly here. Nicely saturated colors created a very charming view. Well done!
Have a nice weekend!

Superb view across the vineyards to stone house on the top. All in superb light and excellent contrast against blue sky. Beautiful image.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

A fine photograph. Strong lead-lines escort our eyes through the serried ranks of over-wintering vines to the undisputed subject: the abandoned church. It's placed in the strong thirds position; indeed the whole composition is exemplary. The colours too look natural and unforced (not too saturated!) I expect you took a lot of other images of this building, closer to it probably; but this distant view is a real winner.

un paesaggio molto simile a molti luoghi della Toscana, anche se le differenze di coltivazione sono abbastanza evidenti.
Bella la prospettiva creata dai filari ed evidenziata dal sentiero, una bella composizione, con un cielo leggermente macchiato dalle nuvole.

Lovely pov that puts the church right at the top in this very natural and gentle scene.

A magnificent vineyard landscape in beautiful natural colours. Very nice with the many yellow spring flowers.
There's also a nice graphical effect on this picture.
The church is beautifully placed on top but not in the center.
Best regards, Paul

Le regard suit naturellement le sentier entre les vignes vers cette superbe chapelle au milieu du vignoble. La lumière est spectaculaire et fait ressortir le vert du sol. Le ciel est spectaculaire.

bello sia il soggetto che lo stretto angolo di ripresa che lo ha immerso in maniera magnifica nel paesaggio circostante.
Colori e nitidezza contribuiscono anche loro alla riuscita della foto che si fa notare soprattutto per la composizione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

very charming and pretty little church sitting on the top of the hill is indeed photogenic subject, but the foreground in here is even more captivating. The green path leads an eye through the vineyard towards the ruins and splits the picture into nicely proportioned two parts.
Great light and well handled. Lovely and natural colors.
TFS! Best regards

A very nice composition where you had positioned yourself in a perfect place to make the ruin look like it is exactly at the top of the hillside. (I suppose there is a distance of at least a few metres.) The green "road" between the fenced in rows of vines leads my eyes perfectly up the hill. You balanced the composition nicely according to the rule of thirds.

A nice compo of these vines at winter time, with the long green lane leasing to the house
Good luminosity and natural clear colors
have a nice WE, best regards

A very beautiful place, and your capture shows it do well, with the depth being created as we lead through the vines. Nicely placed in the frame Too, the building does look ruined, but no less beautiful for it. Th is one of those shots that makes me wish I was there and could go and explore further.
Thanks as always
chrislo (3729) 2014-02-22 14:43
The POV is excellent and it almost creates a symmetrical feel to the shot. I like the view along the rows of vines leading to the church at the top of the hill. These parallel lines make for a strong foreground and the blue sky with the beautiful light clouds complete the picture for me. Well done.

Masterful composition with lovely colours. Great depth and the old church highlighted with perfection. Thanks for sharing and have a great new week.

like they are all waiting for the up-coming new season. a beautifully composed scene indeed.

i really like vineyards and especially their products:)
I recently visited a wineyard in Argentina by the way. Interesting ruin of San Pedro Church, beautiful situated in the middle of the path. Nice natural light and colors, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Fabulous shot of the church in the coutryside.Truly exclusive.Excellent pov and sharpness. Very well done ,TFS.
cebe (1467) 2014-02-25 14:04
A very nice photo. Simple (few elements) and efficient composition with the path leading the eye to this well placed old church. Pretty blue sky for sure. Nice with the matching dash of green on the roof. When comparing with what I see from my window, you sure have a much milder winter over there!

Ola dear Ana
Wow, what a beautifully composed photo, detailing amazing subject-matter. The perspective created by the line of vines, draw the eye deep into the photo and towards the magnificent ruin on top of the hill. Stunning colours, textures and contrasts.
mkamionka (28420) 2014-02-26 3:57
Beautiful composition here. I like the vineyard stretching up to the horizon. Great light and colors so well saturated and all natural. It looks like polarization filter. You have perfectly used the road between the vineyards -it is well places and it leads the eye to the lovely church far in the centre. The sky is lovely decorated with some little charming clouds.
abmdsudi (36288) 2014-02-26 20:28
The precious sunlight created an attractive image holding it together and a real feel of scale directing all eye to the quaint church on the horizon. It does look extremely inviting shaded by clean blue sky, great depth and lovely touch of green. Indeed a standout shot so well executed, Good work, Congrats.
jcpix (9244) 2014-02-27 17:07
Quite an illustration in natural perspective, this is a fantastic composition which takes us on a fun little journey through the vineyards. :) Placed ever so justly along the thirds line, the chapel rests as a perfect focal point and centerpiece. The bright blue sky and scattered green fields are a delightful combination of color and element. All in all, this is a most pleasing view and sharply executed image! Very well done indeed. Enjoy the weekend ahead. All the best.
macjake (49274) 2014-02-28 2:19
I remember this photo from a few days ago, glad to see it again.
wow, thats really cool to see the date of 1570! Imagine how it looked back then!
excellent exposure from top to bottom on this one. the lighting is spot on, and I like the compo you chose to set up the scene so smartly.
This is certainly a place I'd enjoy seeing on my own.
claudeD (28842) 2014-03-02 10:32

Agréable perspective en côte
Ce lieu est magnifique sous cette belle luminosité ambiante
La version large me fait plonger dans le décor
romanaa (7740) 2014-03-25 15:05
very beautiful perspective here, the path provides a good lead in to the house that seems to be in the sky.
Well seen and done.
