Another photo of Safira! This one was taken this Spring and this year it had almost no poppies at all.
Safira is an abandoned village and what we see in front is what's left of the 16th century church, devoted to Our Lady of Nativity (that I've posted before). In front of the church, we have the ruins of several different houses - what we see in foreground is what's left of a big chimney of a typical house from this region.

The composition of this picture is very good. The ruins in the foreground give some depth to the image.
The light is perfectly managed.

It was a good idea to include the ruined house, for it sets the scene and it produces a fine sense of depth. Your well chosen viewpoint follows a nice angle across the frame linking the two focal points.
Love how well we can see the textures, they're almost palpable!
My warm regards,

Another abandoned but beautiful building. You have composed this very well by placing some details of a ruin in the foreground. From this POV you also had the nicely shaped clouds perfectly placed above the old church. Very lovely and well saturated colours.

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical.Le point de vue derrière la vieille barrière est très bien choisi et donne de la profondeur à la composition. L'église est magnifique dans ce très beau ciel.

A very pleasing spring scene with this attractive old church. The ruins in the foreground add a good focus point from which to start exploring the beautiful scenery. The polarizer has worked wonders here in saturating the greens and blues.
have a great weekend

I like very much this composition in a tight vertical frame with great depth; you've enhanced the impact of the scene, the colours and the contrasts, making the view look even more dramatic and vibrant. The ruins in the foreground enrich the scene in a stunning way, frame the ruined church, provide superb textures and contrasting warm tones. The details are exquisite all over, I appreciate the clarity of the skyscape too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

un luogo molto particolare, trovarsi tra queste case diroccate e pensare che un tempo c'era vita, è senza dubbio molto strano.
Bella la tua foto, è ben composta, il vecchio camino da la spiegazione del luogo, mentre la chiesa continua a stagliarsi verso il cielo, nonostante l'abbandono.

Hi Ana, The ruins look like this architecture was once been a great art in the history. The ruin in the front framed the one in the back perfectly and it also provides sense of depth to the frame. Wonderful sharpness and details with good light. Thank for sharing

Despues de mis vacaciones por la Provenza, ya estoy de nuevo activo en las paginas de TE.
Veo una gran variedad de nuevas y hermosas imagenes en tu galeria.
Gran constraste el de las ruinas de esta pared, con sus multiples texturas, con el edificio de la iglesia abandonada, el verdor circundante y un cielo esplendido, contribuye al exito de esta imagen tan proporcionada y bonita.
Una imagen para disfrutar, con su hermoso colorido, gran luminosidad y perfecta nitidez.
Que tengas un feliz dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Très beau ciel avec ces nuages blancs et bon rendu des textures des pierres au premier plan

A fine picture of old and abandoned buildings. The church building is very obvious given the bell tower which has since got silent. Your processing is very good as well, complimenting the fine composition well
Best Regards & have a good WE

great composition, obviously very well thought through. The ruin in the foreground adds a nice touch here. I like the vivid colors with the dark blue sky nicely decorated with pleasant little clouds.
