The steeply sloping hillside adds interest here. Good density levels and sharpness with superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow orange date like fruits of the palm tree. Punchy light contrasts in the strong sun yet only minimal oe in te white washed walls of the houses. Tfs!

Ola Angel ,
J'aime beaucoup les palmiers des Canaries . Et celui ci apporte un excellent contraste aux murs blancs du village . C'est très bien cadré , pour mettre en perspective le clocher . Un beau ciel aussi .

I like the framing of the small clock with the giant palm tree, as the little one makes contrsat over the white all. The beautiful sky adds to this sharp composition.

a well balanced shot with the beautiful and small square to 'accommodate' in this huge and high palm tree.The bell tower on the backdrop with the brilliant light and the vivid colours complete perfect the whole synthesis.
ourania (18616) 2013-10-07 12:36
this is a very attractive and pleasing picture giving us architectural and daily life details that allow us to infer information on the character of this lovely place. The clock tower has a discreet place in the composition and in the setting. There's excellent depth and sharpness and the colours bestowed by the sunshine are splendid. You've managed the light in a remarkable way, capturing the luminous surfaces, the tonal variations on the tree and the fine blue of the sky very effectively. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
macjake (45588) 2013-10-07 15:24
you can never go wrong with such color contrasts of white and blue.
even seeing the white clouds sweeping in the blue sky too. looks fantastic. you couldn't have picked a better time of day to capture this one.

What an imposing palm tree, and what a terrific way to display its grandeur! Without any particular item of note, this is simply a delightful shot and makes me want to jump right into the scene. :) The natural color combinations are minimal, and yet incredibly effective and pleasing to the senses. Compliments on a splendid exposure, every aspect of this appears within its proper range and tone to show every precise detail and texture. Lovely! have a great day ahead.
Friendly wishes from Arizona,

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui avantage parfaitement ce quartier de maisons toutes blanches sous le soleil. Le palmier se découpe parfaitement dans un ciel parfait.
Noel_Byrne (13314) 2013-10-08 8:21
I love that tree, I want to have that in my front garden. Its like a jungle in a single tree. The clock tower is cool too, but the tree jumps out to me. Love the white buildings against the blue sky too, always looks stunning.
Thanks as always

Beautiful palm tree on the environment, with a relaxed, unique and charming
Beautiful frame with blue sky background
Best wishes to you
aleXundar (583) 2013-10-08 11:14
The two trees automatically attract in dominating whites of the church, the building and the car. The palm with beautiful colors and clarity, is fabulous. A very compact image in vertical format. The lonely bench beside the tree is cute.
Yes, I do like the shot.
Thanks for sharing,
With warm regards,

Interesante una ciudad con una población de 745 personas! Una bella vista de la ciudad con el árbol destacándose en la composición y dándole un muy buen contraste a la imagen! Muy buenas luces y colores! Bello trabajo!
adramad (30905) 2013-10-09 9:46
Un precioso rincon con estas casas tan autenticas de pueblo, que dan tanto sabor a la imagen, pero no nos olvidemos de la esplendorosa palmera, que da un toque de gran belleza a la composicion, muy bonito cielo tambien.
Buena luminosidad y nitidez, con unos vibrantes colores.
Muy buen trabajo.
Pasa una buena tarde.
Un fuerte abrazo, amigo mio.

Hola Angel, lo que me fascina más que todo es el contraste del blanco con el azul del cielo...una maravilla..ahora el arbolito a la derecha con el banco es mi sitio preferido..hasta la próxima que voy a visitar...un saludo

J'aime le palmier en cadrage, les maisons blanches et ce merveilleux ciel, le top avec les voitures blanches qui ce confonde avec les murs blancs, les phares rouges comme le haut de la tour, belle réalisation

Hola querido Angel
A beautiful capture of daily life in this enchanting town. I love the soft blues and how they contrast with the white architecture. The shadow falling across the frame adds to the sense of warm summery weather and fun times. Nice work, very pretty.

another wonderful image that I had not really noticed a long time. The colors are incredible and the details are very nice. The whole image composition is great.
A perfect, great picture. There is nothing more to say. Just beautiful!
Warm regards from the cold north
josepmarin (56479) 2013-10-15 2:06
este cielo es precioso con sus pinceladas de nubes finas y sus tonos azules intensos, gracias a una buena polarización.
Has combinado diestramente la bonita palmera y la blanca arquitectura de este bello pueblo andaluz, que brilla bajo una luz espléndida, y al mismo tiempo nos regala unas estéticas sombras.
La composición es elegante y muy armónica gráficamente, has hecho un trabajo magnífico.
