It certainly pops. love the arrangement of lines in the foreground that you have composed to take ones eye around the image as a whole. like

Lovely shot Giulio and a nice explanation of what you have seen.

Looks so idyllic...hard to imagine an earthquake striking there. Such strong , vibrant colours really stand out and great composition.

I really like it.

Thank you Karlo for your well appreciated words. Idyllic...right Word to describe my soul when I edited that file Just a few days ago. I did several attempts processing single files but at each time I was not glad of atmosphere. So I grave to HDR a chance using my fav software PMatix. Bad results when trying in Photographic, Balanced, Soft, Smooth, Natural presets...I don't like grunge style so I didn't go into that Path. Painterly2 gave the Mood you look at and detail enhacer made the rest without further useless efforts. Brightness of the whole scenery had its highest level when working in HDR painterly2. I set sliders of saturation, Shadow and light smothness at normal levels for my taste....so to remind me of the beautiful light and vivid colors I watched when taking pics. The whole picture could appear fake...I'm aware of this troubles when using HDR...but strange to Say for me....this time I'm almost satisfied of final results.

regards

Karlo
