Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer this composition of the clock tower with oranges giving a touch of color, from the pretty village of Benaocaz, villa in the mountains of the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, hope you like it, to then a few letters on the history of the villa.
Benaocaz is a Spanish municipality in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia. In 2005 it had 745 inhabitants. Its surface area is 70 km ² and has a density of 10.74 inhabitants / km ². Its geographic coordinates are 36 º 42 'N, 5 ° 25' W. It is located at an altitude of 793 meters and 120 kilometers from the provincial capital Cádiz. It is located in the Sierra del Endrinal, south of the river Tavizna, and is part of the Route of the White Villages. There is evidence of human habitation from prehistory (Sima of Veredilla, [VI millennium BC]) and then Iberian and Roman presence is attested. That period is the road connecting with Ubrique benaocaz of the few that remain in the area. As village was founded by the Arabs in 715 and was taken to the Christians in 1485 by Rodrigo Ponce de León, who also won Archite Ubrique Grazalema and closest to Rosario and the two castles Aznalmara (Tavizna) and Fatima or Cardela. All these villas and castles were known before the Christian conquest by "The Seven Villages", renamed "Dominion of the Siete Villas" In 1490 it became the property of the same nobleman within the lordship of Villaluenga who gave him the Kings Catholics. Preserved remains of the Moorish quarter with its old stone and has been declared a historic site. Virtually the entire term is located in the Natural Park of the Sierra de Grazalema.

A very nice idea on this composition, the oranges do give great color to the scene, a fine contact with the white and blue. The church towers above, you go a great sense of height while the sky behind has an excellent 3D effect. I could swear this sky is moving as I look at it!

Beautiful view of the clock tower with great framing and pov. The contrast provided by the tree in the foreground with the oranges is very attractive. You managed the exposure really well in what appears to be a backlit situation. Excellent exposure with pin sharp clarity and lovely details.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

A well framed composition making an interesting and colourful juxtaposition between the orange tree and the white clock tower. I like that cloudy sky as well.

it was a good choice to include the orange tree in the foreground of the tower. It gives a better depth and is a nice colorful feature! Impressive clock tower and a good composition, i like it!
Have a nice evening/

This is a very well composed shot, the f/g orange tree and the opposing tower beautifully balanced. I like how the tower so very naturally takes us up to the focal cross. The details are crisp but, maybe, there is a little over-sharpening as the tree has a slight halo around it.
My warm regards,

Buena composicion de contrastes en una captura vertical y adecuada para la torre de la iglesia, con las naranjas dando la nota de color
Lo mas interesante es tu exelente manejo de la luz
Un saludo y buena semana

Excellently captured church tower from very well selected viewpoint. The view from lover angle makes the tower majestic and dominant. The light is perfect, the contrast against blue sky superb. The orange tree in foreground creates excellent contrast.
Very well done.

This is an interesting landmark and you managed a very good picture to capture it. The centering of the subject works very well here because you wanted to emphasize the structure and nothing else. The oranges however add a nice natural foreground to the clock tower.

Hola amigo Angel.
Sencillo y bonito campanario, con esa combinacion de blanco y rojo, magnífico POV al incluir la chimenea y esa preciosa rama de naranjo, un bonito cielo es el complemento ideal.
Gran luminosidad y perfecta nitidez.
Muy bien ejecutado y presentado.
Feliz fin de semana.

This is a good presentation of this lovely clock tower and I like the framing with the branches full of what I think is oranges. You worked with the light very well and the result is an interesting image of fine quality.
