Hello Urs,

I just have the feeling that some travel magazine will be looking at this shot and coverting it for a future publication!
The early morning rise was worth all the effort.
The awakening sun, shooting its rays from behind the clouds, makes a powerful backcloth to this peacful scene.
I like the fact that you have your f/g triangle in the composition.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Urs
So impressive capture, moment and place
Amazing light, colors and clarity
Like a painting
Thanks for sharing

Bonjour Urs,

Wonderful capture with such a great perspective!
A posiive feeling arise whenever one looks at this shot. The sky is simply wonderful and adds great mood into the shot. The colors are perfect and so are the sharpness and POV.

In short, an enjoyable composition!

Have a nice weekend.
best regards,

Wow! Urs, this is an amazing capture. So very beautiful! I am not capable of taking a photo like this, but I wish I were. I'm new at this. Does the f/10 help to give the great DOF here?

Du grand angle de maestro ! Magnifique vue
Le pov est carrément génial.
Impressionnant lever du jour !
Ces architectures sont absolument esthétiques , j'aime beaucoup

Bonjour Urs,
Une image superbe de l'Espagne. Valence est la ville où je pense qu'un enfant de visiter un jour. J'ai toujours aimé la musique de danse Flamengo et en espagnol. J'ai vu que l'Andalousie est une région magnifique.
Avec votre aide, nous avons «arrivé», maintenant et à Valence.
Une bonne journée et jusqu'à demain,

Hi Urs

Fantastic. Si impressive..the red part of the building gives to whole picture a very special -attractive atmosphere.. you managi it perfectly with the light and deep of focus..great job.

Best regards


Beautiful composition with architecture and sunrise. I guess the good light coming from the opposite side of the sun was obtained by an HDR exposure.
Luck you that roof is red!

Well done,

dear Urs,
natural view of beautiful morning scene of the sky and ocean, and human made simple patterns of red square and blue circle, are very well contrasted and combined in this one picture.
it is like one artistic communication between the nature and constructions.
a splendid view shot, thank you,

Hi Urs,
Very impressive photo vith excellent POV, colours, perspective and great sky.TFS.
Amical bonsoir,


hi urs
fantastic image the sunset is amazing,excellent detail and colours.

Hi Urs!

Great picture! Nice colours and composition!


Hello, Urs,
this is a wonderful shot! There are so many interesting elements to it. The excellent graphics of the buildings, all the great lines and angles, outstanding sharpness, the round blue pool and those brilliant sun rays... Superb composition and marvelous balance. I like the way the one building goes in on a diagonal and the one with the red roof is at a different angle. Lovely clear color and a beautiful sky. My great compliments of such a fine shot and many thanks for sharing,

Hello again,
Another magnificent view!
It looks like a painting.
Fantastic colors, interesting architecture, excellent DOF.
