A view of the Alhambra taken from the Generalife, the country estate of the Nasrid Kings,just north of the Alhambra.
The Alhambra was built in the late 13th century under the rule of the Nasrid Dynasty, they believed that they were constructing their idea of "paradise on earth".

I was able to get a slightly higher PoV so that I could capture the Alhambra with the surrounding landscape in the far distance.

Bom dia Jean,
You're right is a paradise.
Photo extremely well done, from the design of the tiles from the FP to give a special charm to the scene.
Great density and sharpness. Impressive depth.

Hi Jean
I've had to look at his shot several times. When I first looked at it, I thought the right hand side was a little "heavy". It dominated too much and caused a little imbalance. But the more I look at it the less I think so.

Hi Jean
splendid Andalucían view. fine typical architecture. well captured and composed in panoramic format.

Hi Jean,
I have been here and I have to say this is one wonder of a place. The original builders' imagination to think of something like this is just crazy. You have captured a good POV here.

Hello Jean,
I like this shot, I love the details and colors on the tiles on the right. Almost blends into the city in the distance. Love the POV.
Good job!

The lay of the land and the Alhambra together are a joy, I also like the letterbox style frmaing choice as adds something different to the table, as they say.
Mottled tiles will always caught the tile, especially this type.
Neat job you.

Did you get the rain last night? I was out there at 2am move water from the butt....now theres a true recyclist teheheheh.


Ola Jean
