    A lavender field in the Provence (South France) with the abbey "Abbaye Notre-Dame de Senanque" in the background.
    Sadly the lavender wasn't blooming.

      From the building and bckwards, it looks very flat and 2d to me. Othe than that, a very pleasnt picture, and one that I could happily look at for some time.

      you achieved what you wanted. cheers.

      but i think YOU were lost. what do you have to say about that place? "to catch the beauty"? well, alright. but thats not interesting.
      i want to know what YOU FEEL when you see this place. or WHAT you felt in that MOMENT regardless of the place. then the tention between those feeling will manifest itself in yout photographic expression.

      i know this might be a little bit mixed up with hybris, but i will refer you to a phot i shot that does that, just to make the point clear...

      Score 10/13 (from the Judgement Day
      group)Lovely, the way the rows of lavender lead us right back to the Abbey in the background. Only a bit of dull sky to distract from the score.

      so my Score is 11/13 (from the Judgement Day

      Nice lines and composition. Lovely shades of green. Does look like a postcard. I suppose a bluer sky might be even better.

      beautiful! It's nice to see the same landscape in different seasons! ;-)

    14. Pixie Dust 109 months ago | reply

      I love the rolling hills.

      Will you go back and take a picture when it's blooming? What a nice pair of shots that would be!

      Here and here are a couple of my lavender shots :-)

    15. *SΛM 109 months ago | reply

      Unfortunately I don't live in france / provence. So I can't go and take a photograph of it.
      But I will when I see it next time.
