This is absolutely perfect--the bright sun on the white façade, the diagonal shadows at just the right time of day. And the whimsical addition of a person protecting themselves from that intense sun--great touch--did that present itself or did you pose it?   Posted: 11/05/2021 12:57:26

Thanks Stephen
The man was there, but the red umbrella, I provided it to him, I always carry one in the car, thinking of giving a note of color in the green rice fields, but here it immediately came to my head and I asked the man if I could hold it to counteract the intense blue of the sky (the photo was conceived in color)   Posted: 11/05/2021 17:14:34

Gee! I love these types of architectural designs! This why I enjoy traveling through New Mexico, that enjoys similar structures.

The BW offering is fantastic!   Posted: 11/14/2021 12:24:04

Jose this is beautiful. So sharp and clear. Have you thought of maybe taking the b/w version and making the red umbrella red in it. I like the shadow of the steeple on the front of the church and the two windows on the right side of the building balancing out those on the left with the umbrella. Where is this?   Posted: 11/16/2021 01:30:50

Hello Jose, this is a great photo of the church which pops better in B&W. The architecture of the church with the beveled edges stands out really well and the person with the umbrella is a nice element in the photo. The exposure of the all white church is well handled. Super!   Posted: 11/20/2021 13:43:46
