[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
La Nava is a polje (a large flat plain in a karst territory) in the Subbética Mountains.

The photo is taken near the northern border of the plain, that is 2 km in lengh and 970 m high. It's the right place for walking, if you want -or need- a flat place!

Have a good weekend!

It looks like a very peaceful place, Jose!
Great colours and mood

uma paizagem que também é caracteristica deste lado! Gosto da perspectiva e das cores de verão! Fica bem Ana:)

hello jose,
nice landscape shot, the natural colours look amazing here, i liked the contrast between the blue sky and the earth, well composed shot with fine pov,
tfs & regards

Hi Jose,
A very nice landscape. Well composed and framed. A spot on exposure has given nice colors with good detail and sense of depth. That is hilly compared to where I live. It is as flat as a board.

Hi Jose.
What a lovely shot you have created. I like the pictured place so much. You have selected POV very well. Especially attractively the bush branches are looked on the left. The dry grass and pictorial hills, nice clear colours and perfect details of the view create a strong esthetic impression. Sweet picture. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Jose,
Very interesting picture. We have also Karst territories in Switzerland (Jura.) But they look quite different from this peaceful and fine landscape. Very soft light on this quiet area.
Bonne journée

Hi Jose,
Great wide angle view of the rolling hills, and flat terrain FG..Nice details, color, and exposed well.
Well done and thank you mf :)

Hello Jose,
An interesting landscape!
Very attractive colour palette, with the autumn beginning to show up in the vegetation...
A well composed presentation, good details!

Hello Jose,
This scenery is quite what I imagined about some places in Spain. This seems to be hot and dry :) I like this POV and composition with the tree in foreground, exposure and DOF. Those colors contrast well; lovely! Thanks,

Una interesante nota con un paisaje agostado por los calores del verano.
Buenos tonos en esta escena andaluza.
Saludos y buena semana, JL.

Hi Jose, fascinating composition with splendid light, great landscape, very well done, have a great week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Jose,
First of all. I would like to apologise for my delayed response to your kind critique on my butterfly picture posted a few days ago. I have started working again as the Director of Academics of a new, aspiring school here in Delhi and find less and less time each day to spend on TN.

Regarding your current picture, I think this is rather a rare landscape composition from you.
It is an evocative image of a lovely area with hills and plains. The golden hues of autumn are already visible in the mellow grasses in the foreground. The hill dotted with trees in the middle section of the picture combines very well with the deep blue sky. The frame is exquisite and finely balanced.
Thanks for sharing this image and warm regards.

Hola José,
Precioso e interesante paisaje sobre todo después de leer los links que nos muestras, excelente información, saludos
José Ramón

Hi Jose,
Nice shot of this special place. Nice pov to see this place in perspective. The image is well exposed and colors are natural. Very well done.

Hola José,
Great habitat shot, typical of the hot Spanish plains. I like the composition and the rich tones of colour produced by the low light.
This looks like the kind of habitat where the Great Bustard is found, a bird that I would love to photograph.
Thanks for sharing,
Un cordial saludo,

Hola Jose,
I liked the POV, composition, light and the color tones. TFS
Un Saludo,

Hola Jose lovely location well composed, good wide format, sharp details good work tfs rgds necip.

Hola Jose !
Este lugar es muy bello, me gustaria visitar algun dia - es perfecto para mi, ya que yo necesito 'flat places' because of my leg ! :-) Los colores y la composicion son muy lindos, como el punto de vista.
Agradecidos y saludos,

Hello José,
a most inviting look into a scenery of pleasantly soft hills, with a lot of space and a wide horizon. A good place to go to find peace.
Looks like there is a large variety of rare flowers between the trees and rocks to be expected in spring, but maybe also after the first good rains in autumn.
Would love to see the same scenery at different times of the year.
Thank you! My best regards,

Hola Jose,]
lovely golden light and a great POV it does indeed look like a great place to go walking!

Hola José Miguel,
Que amplia llanura!
Me gusta mucho la ancha composición que nos presentas, armada con las curvas de las colinas a lo lejos y apoyada en las ramas de la derecha.
El intenso color amarillo es debido a la sequía?
Espero que tu recuperación vaya muy bien.
Buen trabajo y gracias por compartirlo.
Un gran saludo,

Hola Jose, bonito lugar, los tonos oscuros del lugar realzan el paisaje haciendo que la luz paresca más brillante. Sira
