After my two cold winter snowy compositions I'd like to come back to this sunny place. This photo was taken in Santa Barbara on the TE-meeting with Benedic Ong.
Special thanks to Ben for this trip around the Southern California or SoCal.

in questa foto c'è la semplicità del bello:
Una composizione molto ben fatta si arricchisce di colori vivaci e assai brillanti.
Bello ed efficace anche il soggetto.
Ciao e buona settimana

A very fine picture with this beautiful building below the very blue sky. A pleasant reminder of the day we spent here five years ago. I hope you saw the very interesting museum here!

While snow looks good, a sunny sky feels a lot better. I understand your nostalgia for southern California. This is well composed with good balance between the crucifix and the church and a nice invisible diagonal between them. My favourite anyway is the cute little cloud.

Quite stylish church with Spanish influence I guess. It looks very clean, without signs of gone centuries like many counterparts in Europe.
Well framed airy scene with plenty of blue sky and green lawn. That little cloud is a nice detail.

Belle perspective sur cette église avec les montagnes en arrière plan et ce petit nuage dans le ciel bleu. Très beaux contrastes des couleurs. Bien fait.

Nice colours and good framing for this one. The unique cloud adds something more in the picture.

Hi Serghei, We have something in common, we love travelling and meeting people :). How nice that you met there TE friiend. Splendid view from SoCAl. Beautiful colonial architecture, bright blue sky and palms and mountains. Is something to miss when there is snow behind the window. But I hope you have already sunny day or they will come very soon.

Sensational composition with a superb POV, splendidly showing the façade of this former mission, with the beautiful backdrop of mountains, lawn care and the cross in the foreground are the ideal supplements to the success of this lovely postcard.
A colorful splendid, which enhances the beauty of the image.
Very well managed lighting and very good sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
I wish you a good day.
All the best.

Very attractive presentation of the Santa Barbara Mission in its beautiful surroundings.
The nearby mountains make a splendid backdrop.
And I especially like that little cloud in the middle of the blue sky. Very pretty.
Best regards, Paul

Lovely SoCal, with deep blue skies and just a puff of smoke for clouds. That building makes a nice contrast with its surroundings.
PS. Thank you for the image you uploaded as an example. Did you see the original raw file I uploaded to the workshop? Do you think the color in that one is off, too? It might be that my postprocessing is exaggerating certain colors. I checked COLOR SPACE in the camera's menu, it says sRGB. Thanks for your help.
