Gracisce is a wonderful village on a hiltop on the east side of Istria but still in the mountains. Its situation is as wonderful as the place itself with its old houses, alleys, churches and see-throughs

Nog een mooie hoek van deze stad uitgehouwen in steen. Ik hou echt van de compositie en licht.

Hi Gerrit, I can see how difficult the light conditions were here with extremes of harsh sun and shade, but you have done well with it. What a magical little village you have brought us, thanks for sharing, Lisa.

composition is nice. You have divided the frame into two parts. In lower part there is a beautiful scene of a alley and some buildines, and in upper part it is a portrait of a lovely window. Sharpness and clarity is fantastic. A bit less exposer may delete the detail of wall of upper part, so it is perfect. The stony path in foreground increased its beauty. Tfs. Have a great time.

Good morning Gerrit,
really a nice corner of Gracisce with the earthy road and the native architectural style of the houses.The arch creates a perfect frame from the interior of this village.I'd like the light to be a little bit lower.
Have a nice day,Danos

You have made good use of the arch to frame the view of the town beyond. I like the warm ambient light and the tones of the old stones. The old paved road makes an interesting lead line.

Wonderful composition. The arch is not simply used as a frame but you have also included plenty of interest on this side with the church-like window. Well done
ChrisJ (95174) 2009-09-09 20:38
Nice use of the fg arch to frame the bg alley. Good colour, lighting contrasts & sharpness. Excellent textural details in the fg cobblestones. Tfs!

Typical Mediterranean alley and very nice arrangement with this view looking through arch. Well done.
mauro61 (52623) 2009-09-10 2:25
ottimo dosaggio delle luci con la finestra in alto ad abbellire la composizione.
Mi colpisce l'ottima profondità e la buona gestione in PP dei colori.

The vertical format, the management of light and the composition are the real highlights here!

Good frame and vertical format, light is well managed with these strong contrasts, good idea well presented.
jlbrthnn (79791) 2009-09-11 8:41
I like this image much, it is a composition skilful, effective, descriptive, and not very easy to realize because of contrast between shade and light. Clearness is very good. congratulations.
Have a nice day.

Excellent shot well composed with good control of lights/shadows and the textures are very attractive. Well done. Regards, Consuelo
belido (19934) 2009-09-12 6:03
I can say you have managed the exposure perfectly in this one. It's such a difficult situation but I don't see it was a problem for you. Super fine definition and excellent natural colors/lights. Very well done!
jafadabret (56501) 2009-09-12 6:11
J'aime beaucoup cette photo. Tu as bien maîtrisé les différentes lumières pour donner autant de détails dans les parties à l'ombre que dans celles exposées à la lumière du soleil. J'aime l'équilibre de la composition.
Amical salut !

Hi Gerrit! A picture that impresses with the different dynamics of levels above and in and lightings and shades also Good vertical composition and architecture of impressions Idea irreproachable
batalay (35061) 2009-09-14 5:19
What an impressive scene, Gerrit. The composition, colors and textures are all first rate. Although I've visited Croatia many times, most of my visits have been on cruises. I know Hvar, Trogir, Split and of course Dubrovnik, but I did not know about Gracisce.
Dyerco (10185) 2009-10-02 20:04
Great light management. We can see detail in both sunny and shaded areas. Good POV as the arch provides a natural frame for the street.
daddo (23104) 2009-10-19 3:52
Zdravo Gerrit. Looks like a charming place and your photo has captured the ambiance so well. There is such a variety of textures and such a lovely display of light on walls, stones and gravel. Very inviting image. I assume it was not an easy shot to take considering the bright light. Regards. Klaudio.
