A brilliant and sharp picture of the tower and the defensive walls of this castle.
The flowers and specially the poppies add colour and make a nice foreground.
Best regards, Paul

This view over the old castle reminded me a similar view of the fort in Belmonte.
Your POV with the red flower has given extra vivid tone.

Thanks and cheers!

Such a shot requires very careful framing! Those poppies are perfectly placed. Low angle gives strong appearance to that tower. Half cloudy sky is nice in the background.

Excelente nitidez e enquadramento. Ótima composição com as flores bem vermelhas contrastando com as cores mortas das rochas que formam o castelo. Bom trabalho, parabéns!

A good frame with this tower and these flowers to give details and colors in the Fg, well made, tfs.

your gallery has plenty of very good shots and today I decided to go for this one. It has very interesting POV with strong foreground - the wild flowers - which make this picture quite original. The colors are saturated and the light well managed. I like sharpness all over the picture.
Have a nice day

esta composición es muy elegante y atractiva, me gusta el ángulo visual hacia el cielo, que es un bonito telón de fondo donde se destacan la torre y la muralla de este bello castillo, pero especialmente las preciosas amapolas rojas en el primer plano.
Luz y colores con gran calidad.
