Had you gone up there dear Pom? It must be a very interesting place, I can see it's gaudily ornate, turrets, statuary and everything. Nice pic dear Pom'. :)

I wanted to, Niki, but I couldn't : it's closed until the end of march... So I have to plan to go back there, by boat, of course :)

e.m.r. 2 - a picture… on March 14, 2009

Wonderful building, with those many statues. And probably the view from the top of it must be great!

probably, emr, I'll have to check it out next time, because so far I could only admire it from a distant place...

It's a good shot, Pom.

Not perfect, but i think, this is a very difficult situation.

You did it well, that the mountains are soft, but the problem ist, to capture the island AND the boot sharp.

Maybe one or two f-numbers more, could solve the problem, but i don't really know that.

A very good shot, anyway...

Best wishes, Frank

first of all dear Franck:-) thank you again for telling your mind with sincerity, too often Panoramio people fear to hurt the other's feelings and when they dislike something in a picture they just shut up, and only speak to tell compliments, which is certainly pleasant, but it doesn't help to improve :)

you're definitly right about the boat, and I had noticed this fault. the only way to deal with it would have been another cut, closer to the island, but I decided to keep the boat in order to have a perspective in the composition, and also because of a private joke with one of my friends who is a boat lover.

many thanks again for your useful comment Franck:-), and I hope to read more of that kind when you see something wrong in my pics ! I'll try to help you in the same way if ever I notice something questionable in your own works ;)
