great composition leading the eye through the arches.well done Joe

Great pov and framing of the old buildings! v

Exquisite composition - I adore the bright blue sky with wispy clouds against the rigid warmth of the brick structures.

Joe Bonita replied:

Thanks so much, Ely. -- Joe.

Wow, this came out awesome, great work!

Thanks, Bill. The tower is really an anomaly against the ex-abbey arches, but that's what's there and it creates an interesting contrast, I thought. -- Joe.

Excellent image Joe!!!

Juergen, Lenore and Ann, thanks so much! I was struck by the anomaly of the church ruins and the modern, coastal defense signal tower so I had to take this picture. I'm glad you all liked it, too. -- Joe.

Fantastic composition, Joe! Wonderful color and detail, and the contrast between the ancient and the modern is great!

Joe~Love this wonderful architectural abstract, full of texture, blues, browns, and fantastic lighting. Excellent. V/F.

Wonderfully composed and beautifully photographed Joe ... love it!

Bonjour Joe! Love this angle!! The positive and negative space is great too!!Well done!

Joe Bonita replied:

Thanks again, Joy. I really appreciate your compliments! -- Joe.

Love the contrast of the strong blue against the tones of the structure. Beautiful angle and shot! Michael

Nice Joe - Also, I just figured out a nickname for you (as previously stated in commments), "Fantastic Joe". Keep em' comin' Joe.

Joe Bonita replied:

Thanks, Ron. My obvious humility keeps me from throwing your nickname into my bio. Well, maybe not! -- Joe.

Thank you all so much for your supportive compliments! I'm overwhelmed. This photo was taken with a full frame camera and a 15 mm lens. The perspective created by this made the picture really interesting, I think. The wide lens also accounts for the great depth of field. Glad you all liked it! -- Joe.

Wonderfully composed with unique perspective -- great image.

Fantastic Joe!
