Hello friends,
Photo 11/4/2011 Lisbon meeting TE members present Josep Marín and his wife, Filipe Rocha-Sacavem, Ana Dores -adores, and me, photo in the belvedere Santa Catarina ,We can see on the horizon the bridge 25 April 25 and the Christ.
Good weekend

Situated in Jardim do Alto de Santa Catarina, since 1883. In the past there was a cross that indicated sailors the way to the port. One can get to this belvedere via the Bica elevator.
It is said that in November 1808 the French General Junot helplessly witnessed the departure of the Portuguese Royal family fleet to Brasil, from this viewpoint, located next to Chiado quarter. There is a Portuguese idiom, which means frustration, based on this historical episode: “ver navios do Alto de Santa Catarina”, that is to say, “watching the ships go by from Santa Catarina Viewpoint”. The view over the river, Lisbon port and downtown could not be better. Right next to it, at an inferior level, there is a cosy and modern terrace.

Hola Gonçalo.
Ya hable con mi amigo Josep y sabia de vuestro agradable encuentro, esta hermosa imagen sobre los tejados de la ciudad recuerda vuestro paseo.
Un cielo con esas nubes de lluvia, al que el efecto del filtro le da un potente atractivo, con esa gran perspectiva con el puente en la lejania.
Buena gestion de la luz y nitidez.
Pasa un feliz fin de semana.
Un abrazo.

So this is a lighthouse or just a place that warned sailors? What a beautiful view. I like the characteristic old houses and their beautiful colours.

Ola Goncalo,
le filtre fait tout son effet à ce moment de la journée, il apporte un peu de chaleur dans une photo où les blancs sont un peu teintés de bleus.
Un excellent POV qui apporte de la profondeur.

- Already the beautiful warm colours of the fall, thanks Cokin filter, the light is beautiful in this PoV on the capital city, nice composition! bravo!
All the best.

Hello Goncalo.Auch this Photo is the color of the sky again the real eye-catcher. If you like, embellish the sky color the entire photo. There is an effect that is considering to be used. Altogether an interesting photo. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Drama on the sky's over Lisbon, Goncalo, very intense by the tobacco-filter to give an extra orange tone on cloudy weather.
The view from POV show well the old town and river with the bridge.
Bom fim de semana,

Bom dia
Lisbon is one of my stomping grounds which I visited in Europe. It is a city beautiful, beautiful and full of the life. And what music was beautiful fado listened by the small bottle of the tasty porto wine. Astonishing the sky above roofs of Lisbon.

Oi Gonçalo!
Linda foto!
Pdv escolhido, formato vertical, exposição (luz difícil), cores, nitidez e composição excelentes e que agradam-me muito!
Parabéns, abraços e um ótimo fds prá ti!

Hello Goncalo,

You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see beautiful city, surrounding sea and sky dyed to sunset. Houses is harmonized and unified by gentle color tones. And, a bridge seen far away gives additional good effect.

Ola Goncalo

A good high pov for this superb sunset with nice orange skies and superb sharpness. The suspension bridge makes a good focal point in the distance. Tfs!

Hi Goncalo,

The buildings are sending my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the buildings. Using a gradual tobacco filter has a special effect on the colors of the sky. Have a nice day.


Dobar dan.
Lep pogled na crvene krovove, most i oblake interesantnih boja, lepa fotografija.
Dobar tekst, trenutak snimka i postignuti efekat sa filterom.
Dobra kompozijica i prikaz lepim bojama.
Dobar tekst koji prati fotografiju sa podacima o nastanku snimka i upotrebljenoj tehnici, vrlo poucno.
Prijatno popodne sa lepim vremenom.
Sve najbolje za vikend.


Bom dia.
Bela vista de telhados vermelhos, cores mais interessantes e nuvens, belas imagens.
Bom texto, gravação de tempo e os efeitos obtidos com o filtro.
Kompozijica boa e exibir belas cores.
Um bom texto que acompanha a foto com os dados sobre a origem ea técnica de gravação aplicada, é muito instrutivo.
Tarde agradável com um clima bonito.
Tudo de melhor para o fim de semana.

Olá Gonçalo!
Conseguiste um bom resultado com o filtro, neste dia bem cinzento! Gosto deste pov, das casas em primeiro plano vistas de cima e da luz ao fundo, a realçar a ponte.

Good evening.
Beautiful photos.
Good oprikaz colors and sharpness.
Beautiful photos from the view of the house.

Lisbona col cielo di Gonçalo!
Molto bella la vista dei tetti rossi e la infinita distanza della città sino al ponte lontano. Lisbona sembra una città immensa! E l'effetto del cielo rende l'immagine drammatica.
Una foto con la tua firma e la particolare atmosfera che solo tu sai creare.

Buona domenica,

Witaj Goncalo!
Ciekawy widok.
Interesujaca kompozycja.
Kolorystyka robi klimat zdjecia.

Hi Goncalo
excellent use of the tobacco filter, i guess this is an effective time to use it if the sky is overcast and white in poor weather conditions. its as if you're playing mother nature :)
I like the steep decline in the lower fg, it gives a sense of height and depth. the bridge way into the bg caps it off smartly.
nice work.

Bravo et amitié


Good Morning Goncalo,

I really like your pov, which produces a fine view of the buildings in the f/g and gives a natural lead towards the bridge. The warm sky perfectly complements the effect, drawing the eyes towards the horizon.
Lovely composition gives strong lines and a good, f/g triangle.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi Goncalo,
A very beautiful view over the Lisbon South part. Great atmosphere and a true picturesque urban agglomeration. Well catch, have a nice Sunday evening.

Ola Goncalo,
The filter adds a nice magical feel to this lovely Old World scene.
The red rooftops lead the eye gently towards the coast and distant bridge.

Hello Gonçalo,

You was in very nice company with different people of TE.
Old Lisboa in old brown colors to the sky.
Compostion and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

Um abraço,

hello Goncalo
very beautiful view above the roofs of Lisboa,where the tobacco filter has emphasized the beauty of the cloudy sky.Excellent.

excellent cnhosen point of view
gold sky full of colors like
an explosion,great mysterious

Olá amigo Gonçalo,
en este mirador no conseguí ningún encuadre interesante, algo que tú sí que hiciste, como podemos ver en esta foto.
Me gusta la importancia que has dado a las casas en el primer plano, dejando la ciudad, el Tajo y el Puente 25 de Abril al fondo, y dando mucho dramatismo al cielo y las nubes con tu filtro tabaco.
Un bello trabajo.
Um abraço,

a vista ficou diferente do comum com o céu tabaco e os edifício apertados no primeiro plano. boa ideia. bem feito.



Belo panorama com um formato WA vertical que ao "atirar2 a ponte para trás proporciona um efeito valioso ao conjunto.
