Patricia- They say some of the worlds best known masters of art come from this side of the world and I can see why from this gorgeous work of art you were there where you belong, among the masters. This look is stunningly beautiful. What a work of art with the composition, I love the colors and textures and feel of the picture. The details of the house are gorgeous and I love the landscape its found in. I especially love the depth and the gorgeous view of the background.
You are gifted my friend.
Have a most wonderful day. #9015772

Oh, Patti, this is just so awesome. I'd love to have a print of this image, as we had some wonderful memories in San Giminagno, which is lovely and charming area. The lighting, the colors and tonality, the composition, and editing is absolutely amazing. You deserve the Grand Prize for this absolutely gorgeous image.
Congratulations on your GP win!!!!!!!!

And, I'm serious about a print, please let me know of your prices. I think it would make a great birthday present for me, or a father's day present for my husband. #9416729
