View across the fountains in the grounds that surround the Bil-Bil Castle on Benalmadena Costa on the Costa del Sol in Spain. This tree looks so out of place amongst the more traditional palm trees that are dotted along the edge of the coast here.
Regrettably I have found it necessary to add a discrete watermark to my images posted on TE as some have been hi-jacked and are now being used commercially on other websites, without my permission.
I realise it is impossible to stop people sharing images once posted on the internet and I have no real issue with that, it is flattering to know that they like them that much………but to make money from them is another matter and infringes copyright.
My anti-virus software dislikes the forums on TE! So please do not think I am rude if I do not answer any comments or questions raised…………

Hi Brian,I thought of a runway of an airport looking at the thumbnail in the gallery ... ehehe ... a picture in which the prospect has made a difference, simple but very original and colorful as ever.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Good Morning Brian,
Oh, this has guide lines in abundance, and a great sense of perspective.
The tree has a great importance, giving a b/g focal point, a contrasting, softer shape and adding that bit of greenery to these strong blues and oranges.
Have a great day,

Hi Brian - A good contrast of geometric and organic shapes here and we see your expert use of lines of perspective in this composition. I like the 'dancing' water here as it add a little hint of freedom in the orderly hard landscaping of the location. Warm regards Rosemary

Genuine colors of Southern Spain. I like you scene with simple elements. Well taken.

Good Morning Brian,
Coincidentally I also posted from Andalucia today. I hadn't looked at even your thumbnail before I uploaded mine. Here I like the strong warm cold color contrast between the yellow and the blue. Good perspective and sharpness with excellent density levels and light contrasts. Tfs!

Very nice POV along the fountain, great graphism of the trees against the sky, excellent deep colors

oggi ho notato immediatamente la tua foto, ma avevo i minuti conati e dovevo tornare subito al lavoro.
Stasera, con più calma sono tornato a guardarla e devo farti i miei complimenti per la perfetta riuscita dello scatto dalla composizione perfetta e dai colori impeccabili .
Una foto di grande effetto realizzata ottimamente.
Ciao e buona serata

lovely use of the vertical corners has given the image a nice perspective with the trees providing a fine focal point.

hi Brian, interesting composition with blue and golden brown. Great POV. Like the little fountains in row. Great sky at top. Nice atmosphere. Very good image from it. Light/ depth/ sharpness all are very good. Excellent. Tfs.

Jolie composition et belles couleurs(peut-être légèrement trop saturées?). Les petits nuages dans le ciel complètent bien l'image.

I like the strong graphic elements in this image and the strong blue colours. How good to catch a cloud in the sky that both fills part of that glorious expanse of sky and seems to mirror the shape of the elongated fountain.
Kind Regards, Ann

A simple shot with a striking long perspective and depth, its the catchy deep colours really draw all the attention in. The clarity is excellent as too is the exposure. Well done shot, TFS

mi sono perso un pò di foto negli ultimi giorni, cominciò da questa che mi ha attirato l'attenzione.
Mi piace la composizione, anche se non capisco perché hai lasciato quella piccola striscia verticale a destra, sicuramente hai fatto il meglio, come sempre del resto, il tuo occhio e la tua bravura sono indiscutibili.

I had to backtrack a bit this evening, this one was calling out to me! :) Another splendid illustration of perspective...and you guessed it, the ample blue color gets my attention straight away! The combination of that, with the rustic and even golden tones of the surrounding pavement is a thing of beauty.
A nice and easy lead looking out to sea...and a refreshing way to get there. Strong lines and big sky, a pleasing combination. Enjoy the day ahead.
Cheers from the desert,
A kind gesture to comment on my photo today with your limited internet access. Truly appreciated! I hope your service is back in working order soon. Take care.

Strong and efficient full geometric composition. Only the trees are giving a piece of Nature inside this frame. They are at the same time by opposition making stronger the rendering of the straigh lines.
Well seen and composed.
