perfetta la saturazione del verde che molto bene contrasta col cielo nuvoloso.
Ottima la scelta del soggetto, perfetta la qualità.
Un caro saluto.

The beauty of theses ruins are emphasized by the light and by the menacing sky, together they creating a special atmosphere. i also like the contrast between the grass and the old stones. The human presence is a bonus!

I really like what you've done here with the diagonal lines, both of the old wall and of the main edifice. The colour saturation is lovely and strong yet still natural and the clouds make a dramatic statement.
Tfs and I wish you a lovely day

Its not often that we see pictures from Paraguay!
Nice picture of the ruins well captured in a diagonal which creates depth. The group of people help provide scale of the ruins. Well done!

A lovely and highly interesting photo. These archaeological ruins are a great photographic subject and testify a little know piece of history. I like a lot the sense of perspective and the fine contrast between the brilliant lawn and the dramatic sky. Good to have included that group of people to have a reference. Excellent clarity and vivid colours.
A very good job,
