I really like the lighting and soft colors.  It seems like a nice place to escape the hot sun in midsummer.

Agree to Tom: light and colour are very well captured and convey the atmosphere of the old cloister really well. The rather static composition dominated by the white columns could be a bit too stiff but I think in this case it works well as underlines the calm, quiet atmosphere.

Regards, Wolfgang


P.S.: would love to this is in a higher resolution :-)

Wolfgang, thanks very much for your appreciation of the image. The large column is indeed quite massive, but I wanted to include the vine to the left as well so I couldn't easily escape it. The image in higher (original) resolution shows more detail (Leica M8 in fine jpeg mode at 10MP, I forget which lens, it was either a V-C or Leica lens). The following slight blow up of the vine, albeit at low resolutiuon, may give some better idea of the tonality and detail.

Tom, Pierre and Wangham. I much appreciate your comments. The colour of the digital camera was quite faithful I think, although it reminds me of Velvia film colour rendition which tends to exaggerate slightly the greens. I don't remember, but I don't think I had to even rebalance for neutral blacks or whites. The overcast day did provide nice lighting under these covers of vegetation and also soft shadows that seem to go with the subject. A nice place to be on a hot day, although the cloisters are not generally open to the public as they are part of a local religious retreat. Again, no thanks to me for the lighting or colours, although this is the type of natural lighting that I usually look for.
