    There are a few access roads to the south styrian Wine Region.

    Historically, Austria was a Holy Empire and the devotion of the
    people got them to built many little chapels like this one, always
    at the highest point over a valley.

    Actually, this was taken with a long 400 mm from an even higher
    hill, with a chapel as well, and across a valley.

    It's a nice image. I think it could be sharper though (unless the soft focus is intended of course) and the blown highlight on the church pulls my eye.

    Lovely composition and gorgeous light. (y)

    Thank you Dale!
    Not really, Dale!
    Yes if you mean that I could have forced in some
    sharpness in PP — but that's not me. The presen-
    ce of highly humid air being captured by the con-
    vection, between the distant subject and me, the
    air is like "dancing" causing this effect.
    That observable highlight "glow" at the chapel has
    the same cause and serves as visual anchor point
    in the composition that is otherwise bathe in a uni-
    form warm orange tone.

    I absolutely love this, a stunning telephoto landscape with charming processing that suits it. One of your best shots I've seen in the landscapes section Kodiak.

    I wonder if a different crop might work. Telephoto labscapes can be hard in this regard.

    I'd lose the bottom foreground bushes placing the chapel lower. Higher I'd include a bit more tree line. There's two trees in the light that are cut off.

    All just opinion but light and colours are to die for

    TY, Steve!

    these are tree tops
    that will lose to much of the wine slope, wouldn't it?
    Yes, and that is the consequence of cropping out an
    unfinished building on the top right…

    Lovely colours. Is there histogram clipping occurring in this?

    No, the highest value is 214/255 and the
    lowest at 037/255.

    I think number 1 is the best even without the more obvious points of interest. It has a nicer softer quality of light and the mist. This would be my second choice and I like it too. Number 2 seemed a bit harsh
