Beutiful colors of early summer. We have had it exceptionally warm here in early June (upt to 30 centigrade).
A larger version (about half from original) can be seen here.

Nice view from the church on the hill. Fun colors of early summer, green grass and blue sky contrasting with the red architecture.

A beautiful image of such a green hill and of the church in its higher point.
The luminosity of the photo and its vivid colors makes a very attractive and pleasant composition.
The architecture of the church is very slender and elegant, and is outlined well on a blue very clean sky.
The people provide a good reference to the ensemble.

This is really a luminous and harmonious composition. This church is a magnificent subject and the lawn is literally shining with light! Those two people give the necessary focal point and enhance the sense of great space. Last but not least the sky is splendid.
A very fine photo,
