I like this photo. I love the old stone building next to the more modern, but still old petrol station.
I wonder if a little darkening may help the photo? The bright areas seem a little too bright for my eye.
Well done though!

Nicely composed with good detail, apart from the path, which is blown and has no detail at all.

Hello Joop, a fitting subject for the theme, with good textures and pleasant colours.But, the over exposure does detract from your picture I am afraid.Did you adjust the contrast at all?
Tfs, regards Jean.

hello Joop, I like the atmosphere in this shot. You seem to be shooting into the light but I like your pov with the old buildings in the shot also. It looks like the gas pump was abandoned a long time ago and is well past saving. Nice addition to theme

I just saw some of the old gas pumps like this at an auto meseum in Williams, Arizona, on my was to the Grand Canyon. Nice capture of this abandoned relic of the past and a good contribution to Friday's theme. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Bonjour Joop
Very good for the theme , but the picture is overexposed as you say ; I tried to improve it a little more
bon dimanche

Hi Joop, nice to see you have a go at the themes. You're not the only one who loses a few to the bright light...I guess you have found a double abandoned with the building as well as the pump. Fiona
