Just a lovely minimalist landscape.

I've never tried the long exposure approach to shooting skies, but your images have inspired me to have a go.

Over the top processing, ruining a potentially good image. I think you mistook it for Iceland, where such processing might work.

Thank you very much Jeremy! :)

Thank you very much Bill, glad you enjoyed it! :) The fact that my work is inspiring you to try something new, is the best compliment you could ever give me - thanks!

New take on a classic… I like it very much, of course!

Thank you very much indeed Francois, glad you liked it! :)

Thank you very much Paulo & Eric, glad you enjoyed the B&W! :)

Slobodan, I didn't mistake anything for anything else, it all looks exactly as it should be in my mind's eye. Perhaps you are trapped in the cliché of thinking that Italian hills should always look as in "Under the Tuscan sun", but I can ensure you that this is not the case - we have storms and dramatic skies here as well.

As far as the "Over the top" comment and the general tone of your comment, I think it is you that once again mistook your personal opinion for universal truth, something that seems to often happen to you when commenting. Your opinion is just that, someone's personal opinion, and of course you are entitled to it and I respect it. However, it doesn't gain any more weight if you offer it in such arrogant and patronising way as you often do, I am sorry to say. On the contrary, in doing so even potentially valid opinions immediately lose their value, which is a pity. Just my .02 of course.
