A rural view in a small Bulgarian village, almost deserted, very calm and peaceful.
I just applied Auto Contrast, cropped and resized for TrekLens.
Thank you for looking at my photo. Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Andreaa,
Indeed very peaceful, a nice composition with the dirt road as a perfect lead-in towards the village. Very attractivem nice sharp and perfect colours!

Hi Evgenia, is this just a snapshot to show this area? The road does lead the eye in, but disappears to quickly. The foreground is not very interesting, and takes away from the whole photo. The village on the hill is almost lost because of the rather busy foreground. The tree on the left is also very distracting. Cropping it out when you were taking the photo would have helped a lot here. The sky is rather bare and featureless except for 2 little wisps of clouds.
What would have worked better here is a different view point. Less sky, unless there are some interesting clouds. If you were to include a road, it should create a diagonal line from the bottom into your photo.

I have looked at some of your other work, as I always do when I write a critique like this, and it is quite good. This photo is not up to your usual standard. I sincerely hope that I am not sounding to harsh here? It is not ny intention.:)
