I think if I'd have seen this I'd have been annoyed, but you made it into something beautiful and amusing at the same time. I like that the shapes of the roofs don't exactly match and how the satellite dish has such wonderful light on it, as if it's illuminated from above and becomes part of the spiritual rather than the ugly and mundane. Amazing light too - and such clarity.

Wow! What a nice combination of the old and the new. Well spotted!

This is what I was talking about yesterday. Warm colors all over the image. A more typical Yakumo' image...

@Mirko Herzner: Thanks for the visit and the comment. I'm flattered that you'd look carefully enough to notice. I do indeed love the late afternoon light. My absolute favorite time of the day.

I'm like "cat" ! My first idea was why didn't he take off this horrible thing :-) Humour, humour
16 Mar 2009 7:58am
Very beautiful colouring here...

I like the juxtaposition of styles and of course ther glorious light!
16 Mar 2009 11:38am
gorgeous! I especially like the warm light

The lines and yellow colours are just wonderful. I like how it seems to reflect into the clouds. Well seen.

So well spotted!:-) The tonality, textures and details are wonderful, as always, but it's the beautiful form of the clouds that is setting this apart! Love this very much!

One considers the dynamics of history, oppression, economies...

I did not even think about new vs. old etc. This image is so strong in shapes and colors that every other consideration escapes me. Even the ubiquitous dish becomes an integral part of the wonderful composition. And the differences between the roof lines create a fine tension and the contrast or comparison (simple vs. grand ornamentation) is great design. And love the luminous color! And the framing is perfect.

Merveilleusement graphique et joliment coloré! Ils sont bien branchés dans cette maison! :O)

Nicely spotted, an eye to the sky. Enlightenment at the push of a button.

That satellite dish is awesome, giving such a huge contrast between the traditional roof and modern construction. Nice warm color and nice shot.
16 Mar 2009 5:23pm
A wonderful juxtaposition of the old and the new. Lovely light.
16 Mar 2009 5:29pm
excellent lines and colors
16 Mar 2009 7:16pm
Unbelievable light. This is the golden hour of photography.. And you took this photo just at the right time.
I love the graphical side here, very geometrical .
16 Mar 2009 7:33pm
The old and the new...like it.
16 Mar 2009 8:13pm
Mmm - such warm light - and great juxtaposition.
16 Mar 2009 8:51pm
Wow, I adore. The construction of the photograph with the installation of the lines. The so hot, penetrating and dense light. And of course, this opposition of the round, generous construction which exceeds the right, the non-imaginative Bravo ;)

An amusing touch of the abnormal here . . how noticeable it becomes in such a harmonious setting.
16 Mar 2009 9:39pm
Very nice composition, I like the different kind of building :)

Cat makes fantastic points about the misalignment in the rooves, the light hitting the satellite dish, etc., and I agree with all of them. The light again is just beautiful. I even like the strip of red above the window, bottom of frame-right. Lovely

Beautiful lines, colors, light and sense of humor!

stunning light and composition. for me, the dish really adds interest - a reminder that the world is unruly, quirky, human.
17 Mar 2009 11:26pm
this is fantastic! i see what you mean about this one offering it's self to you. the colors, the light and the satellite dish - all really great.
