tutta la bellezza dell'Andalusia in questo vicolo che si dispiega tra due pareti bianche come solo le case di questa regione sanno offrire.
Una bella ripresa dalla nitidezza e dai colori impeccabili oltre che caratterizzata da una composizione e da un taglio perfetto.
Ciao e buona giornata

J'ai beaucoup d'affection pour les murs blancs de la région andalouse.Ici la contre plongée est excellente et donne une belle démonstration des difficultés de vivre dans un village sur les collines.

A perfect scene in which to have no people, focusing the eye on the depth and sweeping curve of the street, leading uphill too getting to all the senses really well. The vertical lines of the bars on the windows create a great contrast to the sweeping curve. Wonderful textures too.
Thanks as always

I like very much the upward perspective and the balance of your composition which is well adjusted to the character of this picturesque alley. The lines, architectural elements and textures of this view are simple and clear, you have exalted the graphical character of this quiet alley. The colours are sweet and pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Lovely cobblestone narrow path taking the viewer to the end of the alley, lovely doors and windows on either side of the charming white wash buildings scene. The colors, sharpness and depth are superb. Excellent snap, TFS

Fine view through the narrow alley, Angel, white painted walls, and with only black color to contrast.
The wrought-iron bars on doors and windows, is in superb sharpness.
DOF and uphill's view well collected.

the classic black iron against the white is what makes it work so well. fine post

Hola querido Angel
Ahh this reminds me a lot of the streets of Benalmadena Pueblo near Malaga. I love the narrow lanes and white-washed buildings. So characteristic and attractive. Well done, querido amigo.
rogerl (1616) 2014-04-29 6:02
What a lovely street! Is there a rule that you can only use white paint? The effect is really pretty stunning. This looks like a beautiful place to wander around in, and I'd love to see more photos of the town. This shot is very nicely lit, with both the brighter portions on the left and the shaded on the right showing good detail. Thanks.
mcmtanyel (22216) 2014-04-30 21:05
A lovely alley rendered very effectively. Very pleasant perspective lines, excellent sharpness and a lovely composition. I am wondering if saturation levels are a bit too high. A very pleasant photo nonetheless.
tatadalou (7459) 2014-05-10 1:45
Me encanta el encuadre, que pone en valor estas fachadas inmaculadas y sus herrajes. El suelo tiene un aspecto extraño, que paso ?
Hansaphotos (8081) 2014-05-23 13:37
I could tell this was yours even without looking at the photographers name. A charming scene from Cadiz region. Wonderful stonework and fine white facades. Splendid composition and well managed colours and light. Great work! Thanks.
Have a nice WE.
