This photography was done in San Quirico d`Orcia on a cold April morning of 2018. I was in a company of two other dear photographer friends, whit whom I traveled for a week photographing in Tuscany. We had decided to go to photograph on that day the famous "Podere Belvedere" farm at sunrise. In the moment we arrived to the shooting place, the two trees that are the main subject in the foreground, were situated in the distance on the right in relation to the position of "Podere Belvedere" farm, they immediately caught my eye.

The composition was almost intuitive even though I tried more two or three slightly different compositions, those beautiful trees as main subject on the down right third, the first timid color of the morning, the hills and the mountain in the background provided the layers, there`s also a negative space that is the all sky which allows the image to breathe. It was done with a 100-400mm lens which compresses beautifully the image helping to give a sense of depth.

Post processing is a full part of the photographic work, I usually let the image guide me to a final result, there is always an aesthetic and creative sense imposed by the image itself. Editing is always a very creative process. Sometimes i know what i want out of an image and I have already a final image in my mind when I start to edit, other times the image comes out on its own through the post processing work. In the this photo I did a slight crop and also a smooth color enhancement.
