This picture was taken from the book, “Spectacular Vernacular: The Adobe Tradition”, written by Jean-Louis Bourgeois and Carollee Pelos. Pelos and Bourgeois are photographers and writers who toured the world and collected images of adobe built structures. Their tours brought to West Africa, Southwest Asia, and the American Southwest where they cataloged adobe structures from simple homes, to complex ancient metropolitan buildings. Many of the photographs of the book have been displayed in the Simsonian, and also appeared in the New York Times

  1. really cool. i like the gradient for the sky. perhaps you could have done a little more landscaping to the right of the building to give it more depth. good work.

  3. I think you did a nice job but you could've gone into more detail and more texture in the landscape.

  4. I would have liked if I could see alittle more detail in the building. For instance, you created the the swirling thing but it blends in to much with the wall for me to really see it like you can in the photo.

  7. Nice building choice. Good job too. Might've wanted to see a little more detail in the yard, not a lot, but the right side looks a little empty.
