'Over the rooftops' of some hillside houses in the old part of the town of Chianciano, looking across to the Tuscan hills.
The terra cotta tiles add so much character to these Italian buildings.

Our first day of rain, hence the grey clouds.Earlier the rain had been so heavy that any view was completely hidden!
Thanks for looking.

om dia Jean,
Placement in FP of the old roof is an important contribution to the gracious DOF you got. The dark rain clouds make a special counterpoint to it.
Great creation.
Tenha um bom domingo

Hi Jean.

The lay of these roofing tiles gives this view a sense of rustic character. The different heights and types of chimmney tops adds to the marvel of this scene. I like the snippit glimpse of the countryside laid out in the distance, the low clouds adds much too.
Very creative of you Jean to add this roof to the capture, I reckon many wouldn't....and their loss.

stv ;o))

Ciao Jean, lovely composition with nice chemins, great POV, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Love the mood you have caught in this scene, Jean!
Good sharpness and well clarity with nice contrasts existing within the scene.
Colors are natural and DOF is well maintained.
Good going!

Best regards,

Hi Jean,
A nice capture beyond these terra cotta tiled roofs of Tuscany! Perfect focusing and good light management. I like the depth into perspective with such a lovely landscape. Nice coolness contrasting the warmth of the roof tops.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier
