NIce scene, love the out of focus foreground--

Really nice perspective. I would have had just a few less flowers in the foreground (cropping just slightly at the bottom) and I would definitely lose the border. I'm not against borders at all, but this one really seems to overcome the nice photo.

The border seems a little bit overpowering. Interesting DOF, I like how sharp the church and town are, yet don't seem oversharpened. Nice composition.

Bucolic indeed! A lovely shot - a shame the sky wasn't a teeeeny bit bluer that day, but still an eye-pleaser!

Countrified I say. Nice light.

If this is real, then I want to come visit! Beautiful balance of saturation, depth, and color.

Nice viewpoint. The scene is a bit busy otherwise but I also like your DOF across the field. Strangely the church appears to be sunlit but the light looks quite flat elsewhere.

Thats beautiful...love the transitions from flowers, to old church, to village, to hill and sky. Great colors, and a great shot.

The border distracts from the picture.

Nice Shot! would have liked to see a little more depth of field for a sharper fore ground, but good composition and perspective.

I wish I knew where this was taken, then I would know where my next vacation would be. I especially like the DOF, with the flowers in the foreground being out of focus. nicely done!

NIce image.
Black border is too thick, reminds me of an obituary photo.

This would make such a pretty postcard.

Great lighting in a pleasant composition. The yellow out-of-focus flowers are GREAT, but I'm sure some will complain. My biggest problem is the bald white sky that detracts.

very nicely done with the flowers in the forefront and the church steeple (slightly left leaning?) and forested hills.

I might have liked this better with the dandilions in focus, but it's still a beautiful scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2004 02:20:30 PM
Dandelions in foreground are a nice touch

I would like to see this with the foreground in focus

'bucolic' great word and lovely shot...my gosh it's just a magical little place! VERY nice entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh, my! Lovely shot! There seems to be a bit of haze in the air that keeps the saturated colors of the foliage from being all it could be, but your composition is beautiful, and I love the inclusion of the foreground.

Very well composed image with high contrast mid ground and low contrast foreground & background which gives the feeling of sunlight illuminating the subject.

You have caught the light perfectly here, very good DOF, real picture postcard image - this should do well in this challenge - well done.
