18.0-50.0 mm f/3.5-5.6
I like how the sun rays shine through, and the silhouettes of the houses. Very pretty.

Josef - I have been reviewing your latest pictures (probably about 20-25 back), since I just got a new monitor. There were a number that I thought were ok (when I first saw them), but were processed in a way I didn't much care for. Having taken a second look, I think that it was my old monitor that was the problem. I think that many of the last 20 or so of your pictures are way better than I thought at first - very nice stuff. I think some of your 'sweeping' landscapes look so much better than I thought they did. This image in particular is representative of many that I really like. Keep up the good work - there are some really truly great stuff here.

Thank you for you comments!
You last problems with colors maybe is not only monitor, but also my web “error”.
I am a Mac user and most of my images are encoded in Photoshop with Adobe RGB. For Web photos I use export feature in the Lightroom, witch prevent photos EXIF and color information (ICC). That mean, - my photos (files) have more color information than usual sRGB color scheme. sRGB is fine for most of us today, but it doesn't encompass the full gamut of colors that can be displayed on the latest monitors.
On the Web - IE, Firefox and Opera can't display full Adobe RGB colors, and worse, - Adobe RGB images, typically look worse than sRGB on the Web.
Why I use Adobe RGB than?
Because is future. – Forthcoming Firefox 3 browser will include support for richer color and Apple's Safari 3 (witch I use) already support better color display. Safari checks to see whether an image is tagged with a particular ICC color profile and displays it accordingly, tuned to work with the user's monitor.
If you use Windows, check the latest Safari beta for Windows on Apple’s web. More about ICC - http://www.iccsafe.org.
