High above the bottom of the valley we find this farm, not a big one but the location is splendid!
Maybe not a surprise when I tell that farmers in this area make more money from forestry than from cultivating the fields...
This time I have a question for my distinguished viewers: Which image do you find most appealing, the main posting or the workshop? The subject is the same and both were taken at the same time, the only difference is the framing.
And one of them is my favourite too, but not necessarily the main posting!

mi piace questa panoramica con i monti sullo sfondo e il contrasto che hai messo in rilievo tra il verde del prato e il rosso della casa,
aloyho (6798) 2010-11-11 4:25
I would go for the WS as the feeling of depth is more pronounced with the view of the village down below and the scene is more interesting. The complimentary colours of the hut against the green spice up the whole atmosphere and mood. A good idea!!!
Have a nice day.

A beautiful rural area, great landscape, typical north forest, marvelous green.
The red hut standing mid hill's has suoer contrast to image.
jhm (130620) 2010-11-11 4:53
I gives you a reply on your asks, I like it the WS through the better composition of the farm house is the most beautiful.
But both pictures are pleasant for look at.
Beautiful place for a good stroll through this wonderful rural area.
Very well composition, good presentation too. TFS
asajernigan (19669) 2010-11-11 5:24
This is a nice landscape shot. The positioning of the red barn is nice drawing our eye across the scene. The lighting and colors are fine and the photo has nice sharpness. The slope of the hill creates a nice diagonal through the shot. I agree with Aloyho, I like the WS shot even better.

Hello Pablo ,
Always attractive , those red farms , in this green countryside . A welle balanced composition with superb colors and clarity . Like you , I' find often difficult to choose what picture to post . In this case , I think that I prefer the WS .
jmdias (49653) 2010-11-11 6:15
this image and that one of WS are fabulous, anyway I prefer this one. I liked its simplicity of elements, the contrast of colors, this special soft light and the framing. nice job.
pierrefonds (52564) 2010-11-11 6:26
The point of view is sending my eyes toward the farm building the toward the mountain which is giving depth to the composition. The trees are framing well the farm building. The late morning light is enhancing the colors. I like both photo, have a nice day.
SWEETFREEDOM (20552) 2010-11-11 6:44
nice contrast of colors and sharpness, personally i prefere the workshop picture.
vasilpro (40685) 2010-11-11 8:16
Wonderful composition, lovely colors, excellent light management, very good contrast, beautiful place, very nice POV.
Have a nice evening, Vasilis.

Very beautiful image, the léléments all are well placed, the light is splendid, and that to say colors. A well successful framing.

Ola Pablo ,
Beleza de primeiro plano com esta casa vermelha sua cor se destaca nesta paisagem de tons verdes, boa profundidade de foto , boa luz e cores, parabéns !!
Um abraço Gonçalo
saxo042 (35170) 2010-11-11 12:55
I prefer this version to the WS, I think this original is better balanced with less details inside the frame. The red barn really stands out here and the backdrop view is just fantastic. Such a beautiful country, Norway is!
ciakgiak (30395) 2010-11-11 14:12
another effective insertion the red house in a such superb scenery!
The contrast of colors are magnificent and the quality is really excellent.
Congratulations and TFS.
AKITA (15125) 2010-11-11 18:45
the red & black farm house looks very vivid in this mild green and blue view in mountains,
maybe it is a proof or an appeal of the habitants to the surrounding nature,
anyway, beautiful view shot of splendid landscape with farm houses,
the light and the air are superb,
thank you for your excellent shot,
emka (67259) 2010-11-11 20:04
Hi pablo, The inhabitant of this small house has a wonderful view! Beautiful red house beside the grass. Great panoramic view. I prefer the workshop version, with a view of the valley and other houses.
Cricri (95347) 2010-11-12 0:53
Un magnifique paysage verdoyant ou ce détache le rouge de la maison, j'aime beaucoup celle en WS qui donne un aperçu sur la vallée, mais les deux sont agréable a regarder
mikolaj_kawa (0) 2010-11-12 1:32
Hello Pablo! Superb red house, amazing scenery and background, wonderful landscape. Perfect colours, ideal saturation and brightness. Good frame. Sophisticated cut. Good luck!
gildasjan (40028) 2010-11-12 1:46
Le rouge attire beaucoup l'il dans l'image bien cadrée de cet apaisant paysage de Norvège.
Kielia (21953) 2010-11-12 1:54
this is exactly what I appreciate here. A wonderful impression of the place where you live and a challenging question! These are two very nice photos of this interesting place, and the original one is very fascinating but I must confess that I like the wider view in WS even more. My compliments!
Royaldevon (23402) 2010-11-12 1:55
You have set a difficult task, here, Pablo!
And I do mean difficult!
I find this problem frequently when I am posting my shots. I will compose a shot showing a building in its wider environment but, as I look more closely at the sharpness, I wonder why I don't post the building close-up for its intimacy of detail!
I love the first shot for the reasons I have just outlined and there is a stronger sense of a f/g triangle.
However, the w/s does show the wider context and there is a lovely balance with the bush at the botton l/h corner. On the whole, I suppose the w/s just wins ... which is probably why I post the wider picture!
Have a good day,
Silvio1953 (109249) 2010-11-12 2:55
Ciao Pablo, wonderful landscape with lovely little house, fantastic autumnal colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
jplebrun (21208) 2010-11-12 4:46
de toute beauté ce paysage de montagne avec cette maison rouge qui transperce la verdure.
UlfE (14449) 2010-11-12 12:27
I really enjoy this picture. Marvellous lighting and very attractive colours. I think both photos are equally good. I appreiate that the red barn is closer in this picture, but on the other hand side the lines are more attractive in your WS photo. TFS and have a nice weekend!
macjake (48333) 2010-11-12 21:51
I took a look at the workshop photo.
and i have to admitt to you that i prefer that one, the one in the workshop.
it shows more of the landscape, and the red barn/hut is more of an added element as appose to the main subject.
i like both, but prefer the other.
hope you dont mind!
both have beautiful lighting, colours and sharpness.
well done all around
Graal (93562) 2010-11-12 23:50
fine contrast, nice red house with the green background. Good presentation of farm. WS is better because there I see more valley. Well done photos.
Have a nice day.
s_lush (16128) 2010-11-13 2:43
I like your shots with small wooden red houses among the greenery very much. This one also is very good on composition, combination of colors and excellent use of the sunlight. In addition, there are beautiful woody mountains in the background under the wonderful pure blue sky. Perfectly good capture and as usual highest quality!
I like both images in this post, the WS seems to be a bit more informative.
Nicou (109629) 2010-11-13 3:02
sueprbe maison rouge, amngigique dans ce décor naturle, quelle bvue et iamge, elle est parfaitement placée dans l'image, avec la diagonale vert, grandisoe.
bravo et maitié
JCG (35129) 2010-11-13 3:09
Really gloomy weather in Brittany in this moment Here is an estival and luminous panorama which gives again the moral one !!! I like the effect of relief of your catch of sight with the mountains in background. Very pleasant natural landscape. Pretty glance and thank you for the more general photograph in WS.
With all my friendships of Brittany and a very good WE,
papagolf21 (80932) 2010-11-13 5:51
Bonjour, mon ami Pablo,
Cette ferme isolée bénéficie d'un intérêt certain avec ses façades à la couleur rouge ressortant à merveille parmi un écrin de verdure.
Une composition une fois de plus très réussie.
TopGeo (38126) 2010-11-13 8:14
Hi Pablo!a perfect point gives a impressive view in landscape! The live and brilliant scene combines the luminous green that gets involved with red house in a plan with a mediocre BG level but beautiful total of composition ws are perfect also, greetings
agulberk (3794) 2010-11-13 12:02
very vivid colors
a wonderful composition
red color looks perfect on home natural orema
a piece of heaven
gunbud (34066) 2010-11-13 17:55
What a splendid view these farmers must enjoy from their high up farm.
The red barn looks very impressive sitting against the mountains and pale blue sky.
Very nice colors and sharpness to this fine scene.
wgreis (8267) 2010-11-14 5:22
the place seems to give much peace. The green vegetation denotes the rich biodiversity of the site. The little red very nice way to break the regularity of the image.
Congratulations and hugs.
Didi (52415) 2010-11-14 9:26
Lucky peoples who live in this farm house they profit of the dominant point of view on the valley
Interesting touch o f red.
emilbo (21960) 2010-11-14 12:02
Merveilleux point de vue et excellente perspective. la bâtisse rouge ne manque pas d'attirer l'attention et ajout un belle touche de couleurs à la photo. J'aime bien l'avant-plan en diagonale et le beau contraste de couleurs. Je préfère le WS.
Félicitations!... et bonne semaine,
yedirenk (11242) 2010-11-14 12:42
Hi dear Pablo,

subhendu_bagchi (23593) 2010-11-14 23:38
another nice capture of the valley. Nice to see the lone but colourful cottage in the slope of hill surrounded with nice colourful lands. A very well composed shot. Tfs.
jafadabret (56497) 2010-11-14 23:55
Les deux images sont excellentes. Le rouge de la façade est bien mis en valeur par le vert de la nature environnante.
Giorgio (11279) 2010-11-15 0:02
- Splendid composition Pablo, red spot in the verdant ambience and the diagonal of the hill, excellent job, well done!
All the best.

The beautiful red color of the farmhouse arise very well in this beautiful landscape. i like too the composition in differents palns which give depht to the image. Superb natural colors under a beautiful blue sky.
John_F_Kennedy (41884) 2010-11-15 7:05
Really nice shot! Great colours, a great capture of a autumn scenery. It's a wonderful shot.
danos (80252) 2010-11-15 8:11
nice mountain scape view with the brilliant light of the day to enhance the colours of the area.The red façade of the wooden home dominates the image making it as the eye catcher of the image.Well done.
Have a good afternoon,Danos
pajaran (44316) 2010-11-15 11:48
Mnogo lepo mesto i pogled preko farme na planinu i plavo nebo, dobra kompozicija.
Uradili ste dobru seriju radova na temu farma, dobar prikaz lepim bojama i mnogo lepom fotografijom, moje cestitke .
Very nice place and views across the farm on the mountain and blue sky, good composition.
You have done a good series of works on farm, a good representation of many beautiful colors and beautiful photography, my congratulations.
baddori (19153) 2010-11-15 15:35
Questo rosso io lo associo sempre alla Norvegia ...ma sbagliando al mare.
Poche foto di zone montagnose .
Bellissima location e colori .
Nitidezza ed un grande panorama
foozi (7101) 2010-11-15 21:25
such a dramatic view of the country. How the green undulating lines of the grass give a lovely graphic. The sharpness of the grass too is very exciting.
the red house attached the eyes to the beauty of of your work.
Waylim (24338) 2010-11-15 23:23
Fantastic shot, taking us back to the warmer summer days. great light perfect day to be up in the hill enjoying the nature. I like the strong contrast in red gold and green. Good sharpness and clarity, and composition is also very good.
josepmarin (57065) 2010-11-16 1:18
The vivid red color of this farm, which is placed in the high of the valley, creates a chromatic splendid contrast with the greenery of the grass and of the forests in this beautiful landscape.
The light of a summer day and the natural colors provide a great level of quality to your composition.
A good work, my friend.
sacimar (25971) 2010-11-16 5:04
other good picture with a red farm, as you say the location is splendid, good light management and colors, well done,
kordinator (14805) 2010-11-16 14:05
A nicely composed photographic element.
Great landscape with amazing red house.
Sharp and clear image.
Perfect light,nice natural colors.
Very well framed image.
clic (13006) 2010-11-17 5:59
You win a gold medal for this take, Pablo!
It features the colourful diagonal of terrain over the modest tones at backdrop for a sparkling impression of serenity.
mesutilgim (75524) 2010-11-19 23:20
Nice capture; good pov and good compo.
The eyecatching red color of the barn gives life to this still life compo.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Hormon_Manyer (380) 2010-11-20 14:36
Hi again Old Friend,
I can't escape from your gallery. :) The first occasion I saw this kind of red houses was when I firstly visited your gallery years ago, and I was (and still am) always embraced by its beauty. Seems like this color is quite popular for huts in Norway. About this photo: marvellous view with fantastic colors, awesome composition with a closed hillside, a mountain chain in the far bg and the sky! Probably I'd cropped the other house from right to get more simpleness (obviously this is the answer to your question: the WS photo's even better) - but the shot is very effective this way, too, and the color harmony is beyond words. Stunning image. Bravo. Also congrats for being brave enough to post your fave as a WS, not a main post!
I hope to meet you here soon, friendly regards, László
shevchenko (18989) 2010-11-21 18:36
Attractive red barn among the green, nice to see some plants turn into autumn color, nice dense clumps, lovely fresh and natural environemnt, good frame, distinct photo, well done.
Angshu (53659) 2010-11-21 22:46
Both a fine pictures, but my personal opinion would slightly tilt towards the WS post, because of the wider view, where the diagonal of green is more strong creating (for me) a better visual appeal! Your teaser is well appreciated ;-)
npecanhuk (58184) 2010-11-26 4:38
A very pleasant-looking picture, full of peace and tranquility!
Colors, light, sharpness, chosen pov, horizontal format, black & white borders, pp, contrasts and composition are all excellent here!
TFS - congrats,
Juntas (7958) 2010-12-03 6:51
Hi Pablo. The view(s) are amazing with great colors and very good definition. The main post more concentrated on the house shows better its nice details but the ws has more depth and is better balanced than the main. So I'll stick with the WS :).
HAve a nice weekend.
jemaflor (76568) 2010-12-13 10:50
Well composed with this red farm in this britghtness and colourful landscape, nice result, well made.
La_Tulipe (2794) 2011-02-11 10:58
Jolie petite ferme isolée au beau milieu de toute cette verdure. Sa couleur rouge la fait ressortir parfaitement et la luminosité met en valeur l'ensemble du décor
