My first post of the TE meeting that took place in Lisbon on the 4th November, with Josep Marin and his wife, Pilar(josepmarin), Filipe (sacavem)and Gonçalo (Bluejeans). In spite of the bad weather, we had some great time in the old city.
I'm starting with one of the most famous views of the city - It was taken from S. Pedro de Alcantara Viewpoint. From here we can see the roofs of the city downtown, the Cathedral and the Tagus River.
Just a few minutes later it started raining a lot.

Hi Ana,when the last sun kiss the houses and there is a dark sky in background,the result is always a great spectacle.Your choice of the moment and point of view was truely fantastics,a great pic,i like it! Have a good night and thanks,Luciano

Hi Ana!

I liked the lighting, the illuminated houses looks great against the grey skies creating a wonderful architectural abstract. The Ship in the background adds another dimension in the image. Nice mood and ambiance! Great POV, shows us a good glimpse of Lisboa.

Have a great day!

Hi Ana
lucky you :) a TE meeting in Lisbon..i can only dream!

the lighting right before the rain is magical isn't it.
just look at how the buildings are illyminated, and especially the cranes on the ship.
this is such a lovely shot of mother nature.

Hi Ana, Indeed the weather seems not good and in Poland we still enjoy warm and sun, sand fabulous autumn colours. but in good company even in the rain there is fun. Yes, this is well known view. Quite attractive with this gloomy light. spectacular view.

Hi Ana,
What an ideal place for meeting, just a beautiful old city on the coast, good capture to a big cargo ship and a small ship that working together for complete the shipping works, fantastic soft sunlight against the dark cloudy sky, distinct image, good shoot.

Olá Anabela,
¡que bien captaste la luz tan especial que había en aquel momento! Recuerdo que no era fácil gestionar la exposición, debido a los cambios de luminosidad en este magnífico paisaje urbano.
Pero has hecho una gran foto, que hace brillar la blancura de las casas y potencia los tonos rojos de los tejados, en este encuadre que deja un buen espacio al espectacular cielo tan oscuro para dar un fuerte dramatismo a la escena.
Es una bella postal de Lisboa, parabéns.
Pili y Josep

esse encontro do TE foi mesmo sensacional! Sinto falta de um desses aqui no Brasil, particularmente em Brasília. Gostei do contraste com os prédios mais iluminados pelo sol e o céu, avisando que a chuva está chegando!
Parabéns, grande abraço e ótimo final de semana.

Olá Ana,

Gostei muito de participar neste encontro Ibérico :)

Este fim de tarde com boa luz de inverno, produziu uma boa foto desde o Miradouro de S. Pedro de Alcantra.
Uma composição muito rica em diversos elementos, tiveste sorte em "apanhar" aquele carregueiro no Tejo.
Muito bom o pov esquelhido. Parabéns.


Ola Ana ,
Foi uma bela tarde bem passada ,belo momento com estes edificios bem iluminados , gostei muito do contraste entre as paredes e os telhados vermelhos , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Ola Ana,
Very beautiful capture from that amazing city. I spent some great days there. Great work, have a nice weekend.

Olá Ana,
I remember this viewpoint with its best views in the evening.
The alternation of white facades and red roofs offer a beautiful city scape and certainly in contrast with the dark sky and dark Tagus.
Just before the rainfall the light on the city was still very strong.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ana, despite the closed weather, the soft sunlight reflecting from the facades of the old buildings looks beautiful. A nice "silence before the storm" photo. Best regards, Tolga

Dopo quella di Porto la riunione di Lisbona produce ottimi frutti.
Luce radente e cielo cupo sono i miei preferiti e ne faccio gran uso.
Soffro le alte luci, una gradita condivisione di una splendida città ....la San Francisco d'europa.

Hello Ana, It's nice to see that you got some photography done before the rain came, I like the light, gives it a great mood & atmosphere. These TE meetings are great, love them, my dream would be to travel the world & meet like minded people, take photos, eat, drink & talk, maybe one day. I trust you enjoyed the occasion.
Thank you
Take care

Hi Ana
The dark sky provided superb contrast with the sunlit cityscape. Nice warm colours and good framing.

Hi Ana,

You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful scape with a lot of houses, river and tasteful background. It's impressive in houses with red roof and white wall, too. And, leaden sky with thick cloud draws ou additional good effect in this image as well as a ship sailing the river.


Hola Ana,

bonita foto de Lisboa, me gusta esa luz que ilumina las fachadas, el punto de vista es interesante, buen trabajo,

Buen fin de semana!


Hi Ana,

Bonjour Adorable Ana
Je note ici un intéressant contraste de la ville par rapport à l'arrière plan plus sombre, cela donne un très bel effet.

Hi Ana,
such a famous view but I don't recall seeing it with such a dramatic dark sky. The contrast is amazing, very well emphasizing the buildings in particular the cathedral.
You were in a great spot at the perfect timing!

ao menos é bom quando o tempo está chuvoso e temos estas aberturas de sol, como focos de teatro, o que por vezes cria ambientes mais belos até que os dias ensolarados.é o caso aqui, muito bonito contraste da zona iluminada e do céu escuro. belos detalhes da velha sé e arredores, bartco muito bem colocado na cena. uma pena que não tive tempo de ir a lisboa, apenas vi tudo do céu.



Hello Ana,

The lighting on this photo is truly exceptionally beautiful. Often when a storm passes the sky darkens and the contrast with the sunlight increases. I am not sure if this was the case here, but the result is similar, I think. All the houses are bathed in this warm light. And all the details of the scene are accentuated. It is truly a remarkable shot. The balance of the framing, the light management, everything works out perfectly. This is a truly a remarkable image.

With my very best wishes,
Have a great week ahead, Ana
