This is a beautiful shot! I like how the road and the church lead the viewer's eye into the wonderful scenery in the background.

Love the flow of this one, that road was made for you!
Stunning background really elevates the simple beauty of the church and you show me how to get all of the spire in (I managed it today ha ha).

@Curly: Yes, Curly. I placed an order to have that road built for me! :) Regarding the spire...well...no ice cream queue here to distract me, so I had no good excuses. :))

A wonderful diagonal line connects the mountain top, the spire and the light pole and the the curve of the road pulls the eye right down into the village. This is beautiful!

To me, I see great balance in this image on top of the beauty and peaceful appearance her. The cross high atop the steeple overseeing all, brings such balance to the rest of the frame...just a wonderful scene here, Maria! All the best!
