Beautiful scene of a very old church, like your framing and details. Lighting is very good as well.

Ton horizon penche un tout petit peu mais j'aime le cadrage que tu as choisi, une petite chapelle face à la mer, c'est très beau

Lovely shot Paco, withthe cable leading the eye to the hermitage. It looks suitably remote.

Very nicely composed, with lighting that gives a rather charming ambience to the scene. Superb

I can imagine that cable being a direct line to Above from that perfect placed chapel on the cliff. There have been many sad moments there - and some happy ones - I'd guess.

@Ronnie 2¢: Yhanks very much, Ronnie.
In my last post to this is exactly the title of the photo:

A wonderful shot reminding me of my last holiday. A small chruch in front of the sea. Very good. Has a dark mood...

This is such a stellar rich in drama and mood, deep colour and so emotive. I like the line coming into the if to hang onto it's existence. Bravo!

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

A very simple temple, only a round window over the door, in a desolate place. Almost the definition of hermitage.

Wonderful old church looking out to sea, it seems a bit isolated there. Superb natural colors.
