This is a very beautiful and elegant tower, nicely placed on the hill. The palm tree is very well placed in the foreground and I like the inclusion of a few pople walking up the hill. They provide interesting spots of colour and life.

Hello dear Ali,
your composition is elegant and effective, you've given the tower great perspective and a lovely backdrop, the tree and the deep foreground offer agreeable balance. A challenging shot in terms of lighting but you achieved excellent definition on textures and details as well as fine, moody colours. The people make an interesting contribution too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

mi piacciono le linee diagonali dove passano le persone, è una bella contrapposizione rispetto ai due grandi elementi verticali, la palma e la torre.

I have read your note with interest and the picture is a fine illustration for it. Good POV as it allowed to include in the composition also some other elements like palm tree or some visitors. Nice use of vertical framing and natural colors.
Thanks for sharing

A superb composition with the great contrast between the original and beautiful tower and palm tree, which is a great ornament to the image, people close to the wall, give a good idea of proportions.
Have a good weekend.
