Nice picture. Nice light.
Are you trying to see all things human from a philosophically distanced point of view? ;-)

Shelley, thanks for your kind comments and suggestion. In this case is the light in the end of the afternoon, that give this special mood. I did not realize, until know, about the landscape slant to the right, I posted a new version in which I tried to improve the picture!. Best regards,
Ricardo

Hola Juan, Thanks for your comments. A very interesting and complex question, in spite of I don?t understand very well what you mean with "philosophically distanced".
I shall try to give you a simple answer in my rudimentary English.
Of course, I have a (philosophical?) point of view about the life, and I am aware about this, in consequence I can tell you that I can not avoid to see and "feel" all the things without this approach. The photography, and in general all the arts, let us to express this "mysterious inner world", without words, without analytical ideas. And I believe this is very important because, I am sure, not many people realize about this very interesting process.
Saludos Cordiales,
Ricardo

As you say, your way of seeing things shows off trough your works, even if you (or any other) don't realize it.
But also your way of looking to other's works is influenced by your personality.

You are looking to your Village from a hill, but also from a graveyard. There are, thus, two distances: the physical, and that one separating the busy, maybe happy but unconscious villager, from the person who feels how transitory life is.

This is my "philosophically distanced" point of view, explained in my no less rudimentary english.

Anyway, what I most like of your picture is the nice light that tinges the houses and hills in the distance.

Un saludo

Juan
