I was admiring your photo when I looked at the exif to see what kind of camera you use and a bit blown away that this was with a compact. Super work!"The poetry of photography will always be more important than the mechanics of the camera..." - J-H. Lartigue
It was taken near Arles - van Gogh moved there because of the quality of the light... I just point-and-shoot I did find the result surprising as well, for a compact. I do not wish to get overblown, but there is something of a Constable or a Stubbs in the way this (unplanned) shot has panned out.
