TE Meeting with Malgorzata (Emka), Aires (AiresSantos)and Filipe (sacavem)
We meet up in Nation's Park to do some blue hour shots but again the bad weather didn't help much.
Even so, we had a good time, talked a lot about photos, cameras, filters (we even switched some :))
In the WorkShop you can see an older similar photo without the filter and of course the family photo.
Nice to meet you Emka, come again.

Ola Paulo,

Thanks!! I like this shot with tobacco filter, in the bad weather the effect is interesting. Something happens on the sky.
The next day I made some exercises in blue hour near my hostel. I will post it today a bit later. I had great time in Lisbon. Also in the Park of the Nations we had a lot of fun and even if there were only some photos, it is not important. I was happy to meet you and Filipe. Maybe one day I could guide you in Warsaw.

Olá Paulo,

o forte uso do filtro ajudou a realçar as formas das nuvens e a criar uma interessante atmosfera. Outro detalhe é a perspectiva da construção à direita que ajuda a valorizar a profundidade. Belo registro!

Hi Paulo,

Good Pov and good idea use a cokin there. I see balance beetwen sea and sky.

Have a nice day

Oi amigo ,
Sem duvida o filtro aqui criou um céu de fogo , as nuvens ficaram fantásticas, gostei muito da cor da agua com os tons dourados , boa diagonal com o pavilhão de Portugal , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Dear Paulo Goncalves!
Amazing take. Wonderful architecture. Excellent sky. Superb colours.

Olá Paulo,
uma imagem bem interessante essa aqui mesmo, e o tom avermelhado no céu deixou a imagem bem dramática. Curioso mesmo o efeito desse filtro. Belo trabalho, amigo.
Parabéns e Abraço

Não é propriamente o meu gosto :-/ Talvez forte demais.
Gostaria de ver a versão sem filtro mas no mesmo momento.

Hi Paulo,
Such a magical mood and a great view. The depth of field in this photo is incredible. The effect of the tobacco filter is also really nice here. I'm very impressed!
Thanks for sharing,

Dobra trenutak i perspektiva, boje neba daju car snimku, lepe boje i fotografija.
Vrlo interesantna arhitektura, lepo za gledanje.
Sve najbolje, Paja.


Good timing and perspective, color of the sky gives a snapshot car, nice color and photographs.
Very interesting architecture, beautiful to watch.
All the best, Paja.

wauw, marvelous Paulo,
yes I like the fantastic atmosphere, the good perspective and the well taken shot, very good and technical job, well done, My compliments.
regard jaap

Bonjour Paulo,

Je viens aussi de faire l'acquisition de ce filtre. Je trouve le résultat spectaculaire, mais il faut le maitriser et l'utiliser dans la bonne situation.
Ici c'est saisissant.


Hi Paulo,

interesting shot, I like the colors of the sky, good perspective and details, the atmosphere you capture is amazing, well done,

Best regards


Hi Paulo
The filtered sky combined with the billowing clouds adds so much atmosphere and contrasts nicely with the silvery water. Good pov with the building on the right helping draw the eye to the interesting one in the background. Having the cable car is a fun detail too.

You talked about filters.... and you used them! (:-)
Well the place is deserving, the composition well built with a fine perspective and dramatic clouds, and the red filter helped to create a sunset atmosphere... I wonder if you could get a more natural aspect by just worming the colour temperature of the the sky... but sometimes even a cold colour may have some appeal. Anyway I like to make experiments like you! (:-)

I like the photo in the ws too (without filter), I'll try to see what can I do and maybe tomorrow (if I like it) I'll post another ws, OK?

Best regards,

Olá Paulo,

Pelo Ws, nota-se perfeitamente a função do filtro.Os filtros servem para isso mesmos,para nos recriarmos, dar um toque pessoal à foto. Sou a favor da foto ao "natural" como com filtro.
Não houve BH, mas houve dramatismo na cena, bem criada pelo filtro.Gosto da composição e do teu 1º disparo com filtro.

Hello Paulo,
The colours are so strong but so nice, so saturated, but wonderful. Well done.
have a nice day,

Ola Paulo
Um Mestre usando este filtro
Isto não é para todos e eu não me consegui adaptar
Magnifico o efeito do ceu quente
Tambem gostei da foto em WS
Um abraço e bom fim de semana
