[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I did not know which picture to choose to honor Adam's new site, so I thought if this site must become a Dream Place, I should choose a dream place... :o)

Visiting Kulla Peninsula in Skåne - Scania, south west of Sweden.

[More infos will follow soon]

Bonjour Viviane:-) Lovely Swedish blues give it a sense of place.I like the sloping line of the rockwall.They say Sweden makes the best farm ploughs in the world and I can understand why....plowing fields with hidden rocks requires a sturdy frame.

Lovely place! Colours look great and light too! A little bit unfocused on the left don´t you think? Looks a nice place to rest!

Hm...Never thought of those type of houses as swedeish. I haven't seen them where i live. I think they most be charachteristic får Skåne - scania. A very nice first choise Vivianne and a nice note too.

It looks great with all the surrounding greenery. I'd apply some USM if it hasn't been done yet.

A very pretty scene, I love that rough stone wall. It is a pity that the leaves obscure part of the houses. The roof tile look interesting.

Very dream looking picture Viviane. Great idea using the tree top and the stone fence as a frame for the picture. Colours and contrast works well here. I surely would like to live in a place like this.

Yes, this lovely view does have a dreamy effect to it. Love the detail on the stone wall, and all those lovely ferns ....

Hmmm... I could have live in the same type of house and the same area if only I had married my girlfriend (her parents own a house just like this one in the Kulla peninsula) when I lived in Sweden 14 years ago. But I decided that I was to young and run away.

Anyhow, I'm not sure if the blur is intentional to make the picture more dreamy but to my opinion I think the picture would work better if it was sharper. Nice composition though.

The blur in the picture - intentional? I would prefer it sharp. But it is a lovely photo - Sweden has many beautiful places!

Beautiful shades of green, Viviane. I like the way you have framed this shot with a darker 'border'. The blues are a nice touch. Well seen.

J'aime beaucoup cette prise de vue Viviane, elle exprime le calme et la tranquillité. Un endroit où il doit faire bon pour se reposer. Belles couleurs.

Très belle composition, Viviane, qui rend bien la quiétude de l'endroit. J'ignore si les feuilles de l'avant plan sont intentionnellemnt sur la porte et sur la fenêtre, comme pour préserver encore plus l'intimité du lieu, mais cela correspond au sujet. Le flou (intentionnel ou non) ne me gène pas, dans la mesure où il rajoute de la douceur à l'image. Le bleu est parfait dans l'ensemble

Charmant endroit Vivianne où il doit faire bon vivre le flou donne au lieu un caractère irréel comme sorti tout droit d'un rêve... "I have a dream and that was this place..."

Hello Viviane, this is surely a beautiful place, the photograph is well composed with wonderful detail and beautiful light. The vertical and diagonal lines of the houses add lovely order to the whole ambiance of the scene. Yhis is a well captured and presented picture.
Well done.

repos et tranquilité absolu cette prise de vue, on devine cette petit chaumière par les feuilles qui la cachent un peu trop à mon avis(rire) car cette composition est déjà bien chargée en soit par le feuillage, les pierres et le tronc en avant plan,et la verdure sur le côté, toutefois, ils font partie du décor...j'aime bien le bois mélange aux briques c'est bien l'architecture de l'endroit,
le flou présent ne me dérange pas car il donne une certaine athmosphère et ambiance...BI

It does look a bit dreamy. I like the way you've filled in the sky with the leaves of the tree yet you can still see all the house. The red brick stands out as looking unreal, another hint that we are in a dream

Vey nice photo And veery nice place indeed :)!!!
Sweden is a beautiful country and you pictured it nicely here. The photo is a bit blurry so i made a ws for you, but you didn't allowed any so I cannot post it... So here goes what I did: I added sharpness to it with PS. It got better i think.

Take care, Stef

Looks like a very peaceful cottage to stay at, all the textures of the bricks and the blue color is nice. All the bright green gives it a fresh look also. Well done.

Hello Viviane,

It's a beautiful plce and a nice shot.
Congratulations and TFS

Ciao Viviane
