This is a very pretty little square with fine houses. The sky is grey but it suits the white walls and the dark grey stones of the ground very nicely. The trees and bushes and flowerpots increase the homely and pleasant atmosphere of the place. It's a nice composition and the colours and light are very good.

Good angle to capture attractive frontage, perhaps because of the architectural style, the way of building frontage
A good resolution
Have a nice day and I wish you all the best

Nice view of a pretty and cosy village corner with these fine houses. I like the cobbled path vanishing in between the houses. The white coloured houses contrast the dark skies very well. Well presented with an informative note. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend.

An attractive little square where peace and serenity reign. I like the point of view and the limited colour palette. Good rendering of the textural detail. I wish you a pleasant weekend.

A beautiful place, I love the upwards momentum of the hill leading up that laneway, and the fine detail of the stonework in the ground. A beautiful place indeed, lucky people who live here!
All the best

A cozy little corner this is, and you've done a fine job in composing the scene to highlight that feeling. A beautiful courtyard are as well, the simple charm is well perceived here. Always a difficult arrangement in a confined space, but you've certainly made the most out your options. I also like the darker, cloudy sky...it adds another element of atmosphere to the imagery. Sharp and detailed with even lighting, looks great! Enjoy the day ahead.

although this street is totally empty it does not look sad and abandoned but rather quiet and peaceful at the moment probably just to burst with life soon. I like the POV and the angle you shot from. The cobbled lane and white washed houses make very nice combination together. Fresh and natural colors and excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

That doesn't look like a Spanish sky! But the flat light has actually done you proud, as it has avoided deep shadows and burnt-out highlights, and allowed us to see all the beautiful details of this charming corner of this village. Very attractive!

Precioso rincon de este pueblo blanco, la calle en cuesta da una buena perspectiva a la imagen, que tiene el encanto de estas bonitas fachadas a las cuales el verdor de plantas y arboles, da un precioso complemento, un buen grafismo ese piso enlosado.
Muy bien la luminosidad y la nitidez, con unos hermosos colores.
Bien realizado. Me gusta
Ten una buena tarde y semana.
Un fuerte abrazo.

You have found a nice corner for taking this image. Like it a lot! The white houses look great and created a very interesting scene. Quite moody sight due to the grey sky. Well done!
danos (80252) 2014-01-24 7:16
very nice the view as the presentation of this 'corner' of the city with the narrow alley to adds depth in the scene.I like the light and the colour management of the image as the beauty of the place.
macjake (48333) 2014-01-27 13:23
you know what my favorite part of this scene is? its that blue-grey door!
I love that color, its the color I want inside my own home :)
I also like the overall tones and diffused light, nice shot

Bonito detalhe desta vila tão mediterrânica. Gosto dos detalhes de arquitectura destas casitas brancas, tão parecidas com as do sul de Portugal. Mesmo com o céu coberto de nuvens, os detalhes estão muito bons e conseguiste uma boa luz.
