About the Image(s)

The Douro Valley is one of the most picturesque areas of Portugal.
Sony A7IV 60mm, ISO 250, f16, 1/100secs. Aperture priority. Hand held.
In PS I darkened the horizontal road which was quite bright, darkened the sky and added a light vignette.

Hi Mervyn, what a lovely palette of greens and play of light and shadow! The zigzag line formed by the roads and the outlines of the terrain lead one deep into the image, and the diagonals crossing the frame add to the three-dimensional feeling. I love the bright sunlit foreground against the colder tones further back.   Posted: 07/11/2024 01:52:37

A very nice landscape, with several layers created by different shapes and colors. The house at the bottom provides for a good sense of scale. The winding road leads the viewer to the center of the image and the mountains in the background. But I find that the horizontal road cuts the image in two, even after being darkened. There is not much you can do about it, since it was there.   Posted: 07/11/2024 21:33:26
