I like the view here! Good to use the portrait format as it fits the composition very well! Strong colour...

For a shot like this I'd go for a smaller aperture - say f9 instead of f6.3.


Hello Andrija,

Excellent idea of this format,
The colors are normally saturated.
Good composition blur anyway.
Greetings. Yolande

HI Andrija,
Good PP work on this vertical format presentation.
I like the contrast you adapted with the shadows in the FG of, perhaps yourself taking the photograph.
Great details on this architecture.
Good light management and a neat presentation.
My best regards,

dear Andrija,
a beautiful shot of wonderful ruined castle,
in this POV, we can see very dynamic perspective of castle and surrounding field and sky,
light and shadow are effective to show us impressive colors here,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hello Andrija,
Very good composition with all the elements fitting together very well. I think cropping the foreground off would bring the rough wall even more into the picture and make the whole image more "immediate" but very good as is. Certainly worth my marks.

Beautiful shot Andrija. Incredible lighting and shadows, beautiful pov and composition. Great job. TFS, Lori

Impressive light control with artistic framing and great composition. The sharpness is well managed and the color is natural with good retention of cloud details. The interplay between the shadows and the light is very clever! Nice work!

Best wishes,

Hi Andrija,

Even at f/6.3, because of the wide angle used, the shot is nice and sharp throughout. The stone wall leads nicely into the shot and the low POV works well also.

Best regards,

The angle and pov are in line with the type of shot Androk , even the long shadows converge toward the round tower , lovely ruins btw ,oh no trace of snow for this February take , a little surprising when compared to the snow-burried house you posted weeks ago ,like spring has arrived early to Montenegro , -7c in my place today , ha ha,
Wishing you well ,

Hi, Andrija. These old ruins have their own charm, The POV captures the texture and the shadows with the clear blue sky.
good composition with excellent exposure. Chers.

Lovely perspective, Andrija. The composition highlights the tower very well.

Great rythm and perspective in this photo, Andrija.
Nice sky and clouds, rich POV/DOF and almost a very special lightness, colors and exposure.
I like it.

HI Andrija..nice shot..great tones and colors. Well composed.


nice simple shot with great blue.
game of light and shaddow played well.
