Regular

I found this plantation in the middle of Southern France. I like the regular disposition of the trees and that they’re almost all similar in size. The long lens compression effect helps a lot this image.

Colourful cornfield and sky

Walking in the surroundings of my home, I saw the great contrast between the oblique row of corns, the bare tree and the sky. I admit I pushed a bit with contrast, saturation and so on, but this time, NO HDR! 🙂

Golden bars

Sunset close to the Turin Politecnico Remote Heating Plant. There was a interesting light contrast between the golden metallic elements (looking like gold bars) and the clear sky.

White symmetry

Early morning after the biggest snowfall of the last 20 years here. I was fascinated by the symmetry given by the trees and the garden seats. Also the “sky” done by the branches was intriguing. The image is b/w, but there were so little different colors, that also in color would have been almost the same.

Update: this is my first image which has been accepted on , a very interesting artsproject. If you like great images, take a look there.

Update2: This image was selected as a noteworthy in the Photofriday challenge with the “White” theme on 20 January 2009. Thanks to all who voted for this image!

Frosted leafs

The autumn is leaving space for the winter. One of the signs of this period is the little frost you can find over a carpet of leafs in a public garden. Of course you need to wake up early in the morning to take this kind of pictures, because the frost is very delicate, and it’s quickly melted by the normal temperature of the period.

Remote Heating Plant Politecnico

The new Remote Heating Plant built in the center of Turin (close to the Politecnico technical University), where it’s functionality is coupled with an urbanistic and architectural project. Mostly built in steel, it has a futuristic appearance.
