Very, very nice and powerful, in the best chiaroscuro tradition.

If that is Tuscany, then it must be Dante's Hell version of it.  ;) Or just a forest fire.

thanks for your compliments.
The picture was taken in the lower Garfagnana a country called "Lo Cascio". The morning was not beautiful, but when we arrived on the square of the church, I saw the low clouds, but there not was a ray of sunshine. I waited about 2 hours before you start taking pictures, I was lucky

Which just goes to prove there's a 'decisive moment' in landscape too!

Bellissimo!

You made your own luck.  :) Definitely different from most of what is seen here and a very pleasing change. You should print this and hang it your wall for all to see.

 Damn it, Andrea! I love to criticize, and you are simply not giving me the opportunity! I can not find anything at fault. I am devastated. ;)

What? You expected an Italian would go off half-cocked?

Andrea

As everyone else has said, this is really excellent work. And very appropriate indeed for the Luminous Landscape Forum. I am not quite sure why you are bothering to show them to us, get yourself a website and a gallery and start selling prints!

However, there is a little something to criticise in this last landscape. The top of the frame is somewhat weak, as there is very little sky and it is too light to define the top edge of the print properly. Hence this edge of the picture looks unfinished. You could get around it to some extent by using a darker matt than usual when it was framed, or by using a thin box rule set out by 3mm from the edge, as I sometimes do where the sky is just too light.

Very good pictures!

thanks a lot John
 I care about to show you because my style is not very appreciated in Italy, their observation is to use too much post production, and I believe that photography is finished when the hang on the wall.
 I congratulate you for the defect found, and I must say that his observations become is right, now I'm covering the image of the same opinion, I have no apologies for defending the photo, in my landscapes I try poetry and sometimes I do take from the hand
 Best regards

I agree, John. But I like that tree at the top. And then I saw this

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-13156213

and just had to point out that there is precedence for the sliver of sky at the top.

I join the chorus of "great work". Most luck is made and not found.
