Peso da Regua is a small town located at the douro river, in the province of Vila Real in northern Portugal. The area is famous for ist big wine Valleys and most of the area is a UNESCO world heritage site.
A little outside of Peso da Regua, on the wine hills you will find this kind of view very often. The area is perfect for wine. The douro river has carved steep hills on both sides, which are perfect for the cultivation of wine. Although the main use of this grapes is port wine, there are also "normal" wines from this region.

I'm liking the idea here, but I would have to say that the foreground is a tad overwhelming to the whole of the image. It consumes a bit too much of the frame for my taste, I think cropping out a portion along the bottom would greatly enhance the outlook. That being said, the approach is smart, I really like the blurred foreground for depth...and the composition in general enforces that strength in layers both vertically and horizontally.
The thing that grabbed my attention the most are the lined rows of vineyards cutting across the frame on a diagonal, it's a great "stacked" visual. There's also a strong range of greens from corner to corner. Focus looks to be sharp and the exposure very balanced. Nicely done, a good eye to see the potential here! Enjoy your evening. Take care,
All the best,

We get a nice wine culture to see on the mountain hills.
Excellent composition, pleasant green colours.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture nice.
Very well done, TFS.
