A very picturesque view. I'd say, a photographers' paradise, thought this would be not fair to the local population, which would prefer to live in normal conditions, I assume.

I agree with Kay - when I opened this, I was confused for a moment as it looked just like a painting. I guess it could be something to do with the contrast between the softness of the background and the stark hardness of the foreground.

Beautiful capture jewlya.
For a second there I thought I needed my eyes checked. What an interesting shot Jewlya. Well spotted.

I like it!
Looks a little like you have very carefully stamped the foreground ruins over the top of the undulating hills scene.
Jewlya: lol, trust me, my photoshop skills are not that good!

o can read the same feelings by the others too smile) good to be able to disturb us
Oh dear, every picture tells a story Jewlya. This hints of abject povery and dereliction in a very strong photograph.

Excellent - it took me a moment or two to realise that it is not a painting. Excellent composition as well.

Superbe !!!!! ... un moment, j'ai cru être face à une peinture ... Une peinture que j'accrocherais à mon mur avec plaisir.
OOH this is more like it! I would perhaps try trimming those electrical things off the right, in fact that area is a bit distractingly white.
I echo Kay's and Ingrid's comments about the simililarity with a painting. Excellent. richard
Wow ! Great one !

It took my eyes a while to realise it's hillside in the background. I need new glasses!

I love this picture, it almost speaks to me, I could look at it for hours.
Such beautiful colors! You definitely make me want to visit.
Yes, like the others, I thought this might be a painting. I think it is that extraordinary sky. I've never seen anything quite like it.

How sad...love to see it in it's original state. Realy well shot.
This is so full of character!The ruins work well on that very special background! I find your portofolio very attractive!
Very picturesque like a piece of painting.
