[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of many old ruins on the wheat plains around South Australia's Clare and Barossa valleys. Low rolling hills layered with wheat crops are occasionally interrupted by these beautiful yet lonely reminders of times gone by. Tone mapped from a RAW image using Photomatix software.

hello steve! hello ioana! :)
i like the colours and tones in this picture! you have done a wonderful job! a good composition also! those trees,lying almost on the ground, are very expressive! loneliness in the sky - loneliness on the earth!
good job!


Hi Steve and Ioana,
Lovely image of this old ruin! Thought it looked South Australian! Great composition with the trees which look pretty old too. I like the textures and colours of the building and the sky is gorgeous! Well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

... but still standing. after all, it's not so bad, isn't it? and it could be renewed by someone, someday...
regards, cal

I think the strong colours here make this picture stand out - the contrast between the blue of the sky, the vivid green grass and the building is excellent. Nice photo!
