love the composition here - one of my favorites - I think I'd prefer to see it with the black tweeked a bit more - but still very lovely - nice job :)

Beautiful place beautiful colors.

A stunning landscape. Nicely done. This might benefit from some more dramatic lighting, though. Still, I think the subtelty of the lighting in this does add a serene quality to the image.

Very nice. Maybe needs a touch more contrast.8

Intriguing place. The sky looks kind of fake, though,

Fantastic, 10. I hope you share a large version of this after the challenge so we can see all the detail!

This is very cool but could use a little more contrast and/or sharpening IMO. Good Luck!

Nice image, but needs work to give it more "oomph".
01/26/2006 04:27:44 PM
That's a very cool shot.
I especially like that switch back road on the right.
Also the building on the over hang from that angle looks impressive.

This is an interesting shot, but seems out of focus to me.I do like how the horizon appears straight (extra point for that) and it does seem to come straight from the middle ages (bumping up).

This does look timeless, and you have captured the image so well.....

Wonderful view! The colours looks a bit too pastel (at least on my monitor), which is something I don't quite adore. I think perhaps a little more contrast and saturation would have helped. All this imo, obviously. Good luck!

Excellent, I wish it had a bit more contrast.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2006 03:43:56 PM
Yes, that is very cool.
01/20/2006 10:28:03 PM
the title is very fitting, it does look like something out of the middle ages. since color doesnt play a very big role in this photo i think it would be even better in black and white...7

Nice clarity and sharpness. More foreground or less sky might have helped some but it's very nice regardless.

That's a really cool village.. Lacking contrast, this photo seems a bit hazy and flat, but the subject is great.

just clone out the cars and you have me convinced :) Won't nitpick so harshly here... strong 7

10 from me....good luck!

This reminds me very much of France...Franche Compté or whatever it's called. Good composition. The colours look very rich and I like how the red subtly contrasts the surrounding green. It might have been darker, overall - mainly in the sky. 8.

would like to see more vibrant colors. I'm sure the color tones here were intended, I just prefer brighter scens, but that's me. Nicely composed

WOW! This is beautiful!
01/17/2006 06:03:58 PM
stunning landscape, good luck
01/17/2006 05:13:31 PM
Everything about this image is a 10!
01/17/2006 11:22:03 AM
Gorgeous shot! Third favorite!
01/17/2006 09:34:34 AM
Indeed...it looks like a scene from a fairytale! Very nice.

Wow what an amazing shot. The coloring is magically looking.
01/16/2006 04:41:45 PM
This is a glorious panorama but I feel like it needs a little richness. Perphaps adjustment of levels or curves would really delve into the deeper tones of brown, green, etc. I do love it though.

Beautiful picture - looks more like a painting than a photograph (given the burning and sharpening you performed).

When I give a photo a 10, it is because I feel it is wonderfual all the way around. Therefore, I have no real comment other than to say I gave you a 10!

Looks like a page from a fairy tales's book, like it!
