[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. "The Five Lands" is composed of five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development.
This is the highest part of Monterosso al Mare where rain was already pouring while my short visit to the place.

Hi Francis.

This is one of those images that will stick itself in the mind of some time. Its such a dramatic scene with a village hanging onto the sides of a mountain covered in trees and mist. Amazing feel and view. tfs

stv ;o))

Hello Francis
What a fantastic image of this village perched on the side of the mountain.This is a very eye catching.Colorful houses and the
fog adds a nice atmosphere.
Well done......Good WE,Robert

Hello Francis,
I'd say lovely and romantic landscape,nicely exposed the difficult light condition.
My regards_Joy

Hi Francis..nice shot...excellent light and tones.


Hi Francis, I like the way the light falls across the buildings, trapped under the clouds.You wouldnt want to be a sleepwalker up there. Fiona

Love the mood you have caught in this wonderful landscape shot, Francis!
Colors are natural and contrasts are well maintained in the scene.
the fog adds drama into the scene as well.
Nice work!

Best wishes,

Maybe dull but I like the effect of the mist on the mood. Nice capture of the colorful houses on the hill with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Francis,
Contours and colors of buildings with fog in the background is refreshing.Well composed.

Hi Francis,
Fantastic setting and surrounding envirnment.The soft colours of the buildings fitting in well with the surrounds.Good reflective light off the side of the mountain as well as the houses.

LOVE this one Francis! The dull/greyness of the day, and the haze at the top, contrasting with the bright spot of light over the village, highlighting the bright green of the hillside and the brightly colored buildings... just perfect. very nicely composed shot!

A beautiful point of view and great details on the Italian Riviera,
Excellent landscape, village and HDR. treatment,
I like the misty atmosphere in the mountain,
Nice architecture and presentation,

Bonjour Francis Xavier,

J'aime les maisons aux tonalités généreuses laissant entrevoir le mouvement d'une vague de couleurs composée à la perfection.
Le ciel gris, chapeaute joliment la colline cela donne un cliché harmonieusement naturel.
Bravo pour ce coup d'oeil partagé et la présentation ordonnée.
Salutations amicales. Agréable semaine.

Lovely pov showing this delightful village in its rugged context. The fog adds an element of seclusion and the hdr enhances the colours. Nice job

Hi Francis,

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a lot of houses standing on the cliff. It's impressive in colorful wall of houses as well as mountains with rich greenery in behind and dull weather, too.

Kind regards,
