Selection of December 2018: Toscany by Isabelle Bacher
Terra Quantum has been enchanted with this picture of Isabelle Bacher taken in Italy. Beyond the composition which is perfectly mastered, we have loved the contrast between the curves and the straight lines of the trees, the roundness vs. the sharpness. The texture is not left behind either and the colour palette is just magical. read more.
