I like the blue hues in your composition and the low point of view. I wish the foreground was more in focus though but that may be how you wanted it...

the light was not the best, a bluish tone permeates the image, but the low POV you chose makes the picture absolutely exquisite.An excellent composition well showing all the elements that constitute it.

£adna kompozycja i nietuzinkowa kolorystyka.

The wideness of the space in front of the chapel is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the chapel. The early evening light is giving darker colours to the scene. Have a nice day.

This is a very well composed shot, the church strongly positioned and framed nicely by the two shadowy trees. The blue tones emphasise the cold, which you mention in your notes.
I'm not sure about the blurred f/g but you may have intended it.
Have a lovely day,
marabu61 (11061) 2013-05-09 2:44
Attractive blueish hue and an interesting POV makes this composition very pleasing to look at. It has some gothic allure to it with the barren tree and the massive foreground.
have a good day

I appreciate a lot that you are presenting us the lesser known churches of your interesting region -especially such an interesting architecture! You are presenting a beautiful impression with a fantastic atmosphere in this wonderful light. Excellent photo work!
timecapturer (49288) 2013-05-09 3:53
a creative shot of this little church, it looks like you were lying on the ground to take this, but your notes give us a clue about your POV. Superb light management that adds drama and power to the image. Well done!
Regards - Brian.

All the best,

Belle prise a ras du sol, qui accentue la profondeur, le flou donne un coté étrange, j'aime les teintes bleutées, l'angle de vue de la chapelle et l'arbre sans feuillages, belle réalisation
batalay (39127) 2013-05-10 15:32
The wide angle lens has given an intriguing look to the simple stone chapel. The stonework is vry impressive, with heavy walls and massive stones.
Um Abraço, Gonçalo, have a good weekend,
jhm (154490) 2013-05-11 7:17
You took these picture out of the low position, with a lovely result.
The small chapel becomes bigger and the distance very far.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
You chose an excellent angle, this gives depth and perspective.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Have a nice weekend,
williewhistler (16398) 2013-05-11 12:05
Hello Goncalo,your low view point helps to emphasise the position of the rugged chapel against the interesting Spring sky.
danos (99160) 2013-05-11 22:17
nice the view as the presentation of this small and village chapel with the low POV to adds perspective and depth in the image with the leafless oak tree to allow us to see and admire its details.
Have a good Sunday,Danos

Very impressive blue ambiance on this church
Peacefull and quiet ambiance
I think that you should close at f/8 to give more DOF on the foreground
leonorkuhn (16235) 2013-05-12 17:03
Sou testemunha que o dia estava muito frio. Mesmo assim, você fez um ótimo trabalho aqui. O ponto de vista destaca a fachada da capela, tão singela e tão atraente. O carvalho parece montar guarda zelando pelo local. O sol se foi, mas a nitidez é muito boa.
Abraços e uma boa semana
npecanhuk (75592) 2013-05-12 19:29
Destaque para o manuseio de luz difícil, ponto de vista escolhido e composição!
jmdias (65105) 2013-05-13 7:12
muito bom este seu pov baixo apanhando a textura do chão. a luz estava bem difícil , mas a foto ficou muito boa. lindo trabalho. parabéns.

è sempre un gran piacere ammirare le tue foto e trarne spunti interessanti :)
Questa è davvero una gran bella immagine.

quel effet de cadrage sur cette chapelle sueprbe tout en pierre et cet arbre avec le ciel bleu clair quelle gestion des lumière merveilleux.
Bravo et amitié
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-05-15 23:13
Another attractive shot from the same area.The chapel in the blue hue looks very nice.Excellent light and colors. Thanks for sharing this good work.
ChrisJ (115493) 2013-05-16 2:39
I like the soft focus fg & sharply defined midground including the little stone church. The gnarled old tree at right adds good graphism as well as adding depth layering and graphism. Good sharpness and superb shadow detail. Have a fantastic weekend! Friday tomorrow!!!
delpeoples (58572) 2013-05-17 22:39
Ola dear Goncalo
I really like the cool blue caste here, which adds to the sense of cold weather and solitude. The little chapel is very pretty and quaint in amongst the trees, and I like the low POV which you used, so often your trademark. Excellent work and the frame works well too.
bukitgolfb301 (42652) 2013-05-18 2:29
Hi Hola dear Goncalo
Perfect balanced and compositioned image as your originality. So sharp and clear presentation is so comfortable to see as usual.
Best low and wide angle setting and branches above are so nice output of your deep cosideration.
Thanks a lot and have a good weekend!

Good presentation of this small chapel from frog perspective during the blue hour. I like the result.
adores (45715) 2013-05-22 15:29
A partir deste pov o local parece bem diferente. Gosto do pov baixo e do enquadramento da igrejita entre as árvores nuas. Esta luz do final do dia também dá uma boa atmosfera!

Nice shot of this great stone church. Very well captured, great light and colours. Wonderful church. Very fine architecture.
