Over the Top

by GIULIO57

Just a research on colours: using less dyes as possible to take a picture that depicts a “place or a moment of a landscape”. Camera K20D. Lens 18-55mm on 50mm focal length. Hand-held camera. Place: Torrenieri. Motor-road from Siena to Rome (SS n°1-Cassia). Afternoon. No polarizing filter. I took 5 different shots at the same F-number varying speed-time only. Then I choosed the one with a deep blue sky. P.S. I’m not completely satisfied of result I got. (The same for BW Conversion. Not showed in PUG).

I like the clouds...just enough to balance the lower half of the picture.
The composition is spot on!

WooWW ! I really like this. It's perfect landscape shot. I like the color separation on the mountain and place of the building.

Beautiful blue sky and warm colours beneath, i think of a song my Mother used to sing ... The folks that live on the hill ... a wonderful composition Giulio, we don't see enough of yours.

Beautiful composition and the exposure is spot-on. The simplicity of this shot is deceptive - the more I look, the more I see!

That is a great composition in it's unusual arrangement and I love the sky!
The little building adds interest too.
