Probably my favourite image from this years summer holiday and soon to make it onto a large canvas for the lounge wall Grin

Taken about an hour after my last upload and from a different viewpoint but of the same farmhouse which I believe might be Belvedere in San Quirico d'Orcia.

Thanks for taking a look and for the support on my other holiday snaps.

Darren.

This is superb Darren - can understand why you want it on your wall. Personally I am not sure that the vignette helps it and I would do without but as always it is just personal preference.
Thanks for the vote on my image - I am now going to look at the rest of your Tuscan images!

Thanks Jason. The vignette come free when shooting a wide aperture with the 70-200 at 200mm, the VR II cured this 'problem' but personally I don't mind it usually although I agree it possibly doesn't work quite so well with this image. Oh, and before anyone says I shouldn't be shooting landscapes at a wide aperture (f/3.2 in this case) I did shoot the same scene at f/16 but thought I'd try to isolate the farmhouse from the background by opening up a bit and in my opinion this was the better of the 2 images.

Darren.
