Hi dear TE friends

Place : Downtown Lisbon(Bairro Alto/ Belvedere de São Pedro de Alcântara)

Theme: Lisbon meeting TE 04/11/2011

To see: map view and workshops

My secund post of the TE meeting that took place in Lisbon on the 4th November, with Josep Marin (JosepMarin)and his wife Pilar, Ana (Adores)and Gonçalo (Bluejeans), with whom we spend one very special and pleasant evening.

Here you can see the wonderful sight of Lisbon from the Miradouro de Sao Pedro de Alcântara, a view contrary to the photos already posted by Anabela and Josep Marin.

In the WS 1 From left to right, Anabela (adores), Filipe (sacavem), my wife, and Gonçalo (Bluejeans).
In the WS 2 an animated conversation with Maria Pilar (wife of Josep), Anadores and Gonçalo to work:)

I hope you like it, a big hug to all the friends of the TE.

Hello Filipe,
you do nothing but reinforce my desire for visiting, one day, Lisbon, and I will need much more than the fifteen small days of holidays annual that I pass to Portugal, so much there are things to see.
It's a pity that the sun did not condescend to grant some one of its rays to light the city.

Cordially, Dino.

OLa Filipe, beautiful panorama from San Pedro, nice composition and colours. But I like first of all the workshop photos, nice to see the Trekkers meeting.

Warm regards from Burma


Hello Filipe,

I like your high POV where you see a beautiful picture.

Best regards,


ciao Filipe,
un ottimo punto di osservazione sulla città da questo belvedere con i caratteristici tetti rossi in lontananza.
Ampia inquadratura e luce ben gestita malgrado le nuvole,

Olá, amigo Filipe,
recuerdo cuando tomabas esta foto, de hecho en mi vídeo apareces en este justo momento.
Me gusta esta vista tan espectacular, que es la opuesta a la foto que ha presentado Gonçalo, en la que vemos los jardines y la parte más moderna de Lisboa al fondo, bajo un cielo con unas nubes muy estéticas, que acabarían en un chubasco que nos pilló en la Baixa.
Buena composición, bien realizada.
Um abraço,
Pili y Josep

Hola Filipe,

otra buena vista de Lisboa, me gusta el cielo tan llamativo que tuvisteis ese dia, el jardin parece un buen lugar para pasear,

Un saludo,


Oi Filipe ,
Uma bela diagonal com o jardim levando o nosso olhar para o horizonte , daqui de cima é uma bela vista sobre a cidade , bons detalhes e cores, parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Ciao Filipe,
bellissima questa panoramica, il cielo è molto interessante, grande nitidezza e perfetta profondità.
ottimo lavoro

Hi Felipe,

Very nice view of the city. The depth of field is great and you make very good use of the lines in your composition. In particular the fence that leads in to the people and also the diagonal line to the right. TFS and have a nice evening!



Hola Felipe

Interesante vista de Lisboa y su cielo ya casi obscureciendo, pero lo que mas me gusto fueron los WS, en especial ver a Gonzalo ( Bluejeans) que los usa, me parecio un detalle gracioso

Felicitaciones y saludos

Hi Filipe,
the panoramic view of the downtown makes the image so beautiful and effective.The colours,the light and the perspective lead the eye on the far end of the scene.

Tanks for your visit Filipe
A high point of view over this three-leveled area of city conveys an informative infinite perspective despite shaded sun.
The "second floor"', taking airs of Versailles Gardens, is particularly attractive.

Hello Filipe, nice to see you all and I envy you since I miss Lisbon. Not only this photo of Miradouro São Pedro de Alcântara, but also Baixa photo in the Workshop make me feel I am in Lisbon. You have chosen excellent PoV for this photo. Best regards, Tolga

Hello Filipe,
Wonderful composition, beautiful view to the city, lovely light and colors, excellent POV and DOF, very good clarity and sharpness, very nice framework, TfS!

Hi Filipe,
good POV, nice presentation of the fragment of Lisboa. Very much nicely he is to see friends from TE and Portugal (WS). I congratulate successful meeting.
Have a nice day.

Ola Filipe,
I knew about this Miradouro sao-Pedro prior to my visit to Lisboa - but did not have time to go there, and I miss it: the place has one of the most fine POV over the Baxia, and here I can see the part of it.
Even with dominating shaded area - you managed a good photo with the length of the place and town on right, and a big cloud aloft.
Lovely, bom dia,

Hi Filipe,magnificent choice of point of view to create this neverending perspctive,very impressive sharpness and a lof of elements,details and colors,very well done,have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Filipe
Amazing capture with very good layout and nice soft colors.
I wished I could be there as well !
TFS and best regards

As I have said previously the weather was not the ideal that day, so that most of the city was without light.
Any way the composition is fine and the clouds in the sky are deserving.

I've done a workshop trying to give more light to the shadows. I hope you like it.



Olà Filipe,

I know this belvedere and the nice POV to the city. Your photo is dus a memory forme , thanks for this memory. I like the POV well selcetd which give an image rich in various elements with the details well collected. Beautiful natural color too welle collected under a cloudy sky.

Hello Filipe,

A great image begins with a very creative FG, a handrail. I like how the entire image naturally flows to the right following the stepped landscape down towards the town. The depicted scene is very relaxed. The large sky and the clouds cover the entire scene so naturally. I like the photo very much. TFS

With my very best regards,
Have a very nice evening, Filipe

great cityscape with fantastic point of view over the lisboa
very beautiful garden with great colors
i love the blu sky and white clouds
dear friend

wow, a fantastic frame obtained nicely using a high POV. Great light / colour and sharpness. A superb composition. Tfs.
Best wishes to you.

Ciao Filipe, great POV on beautiful City, fantastic sky, splendid light, wonderful natural colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Filipe,

The distance between the belvedere and the buildings in the background is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the belvedere. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Witaj Filipe!
Wonderful view, beautiful panorama.
Good frame, composition and colours.
Well done.
Best regards

Ola Filipe,

Lisbon is a city that I have never visited so such shots are always of interest. I do like the way that you have used the converging lines, not only as a lead into the city, but also to create a sense of perspective. The warm terra cota colours give a welcoming appearance, whilst thatinteresting sky provides a fine backcloth.

Have a good w/e,
Bev :-)

Hi Filipe
i recognize this scene right away, from one of the other TE members posting.
great angle of the city, with dimmed lighting, but still beautiful to view.
excellent depth and clarity.
enjoy your w/e

Hello Filipe,

in my mind Portugal is sunny country. Even here, optimism is waiting trough the blue sky. In any case, your gallery is the real richness of your country's sceneries. So, if you try a toil on canvas, the blue here is phtalocian blue. All compliments friend and friendship,


Oi o Filipe,
a luz moderada não prejudica na qualidade deste panorama urbano, nem no charme da atmosfera. Qualidade excelente da limpeza e a profundidade. Bravo, também para esta reunião fez um sucesso com fotógrafos muito agradáveis.
Dia bom.

Hello Gonçalo.
Despite a fairly cloudy day, it was a good afternoon at the TE meeting with Josep and Pili, since I'm viewing photos both are splendid.
Here we show a stunning panorama of the city, this beautiful garden in the foreground, the sky is beautiful with these pieces of blue and clouds. stunning view of the image. Good job, I like it.
Have a nice weekend.
Best regards.

A lovely meeting between different members of TE.
Excellent composition nice panoramic image.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice Sunday,

Bonjour, Cher Filipe,
Une réunion très sympathique entre amis de TE. Merci à Josep pour les photos présentées en atelier.
La vue proposée est étonnante avec ces petits carrés de jardin entourés de sculptures de différentes sortes.
L'arrière-plan droit ouvre sur la ville d'une excellente façon.
J'aime l'originalité générale et l'amitié manifeste dans cette rencontre.

Oi Filipe!
Belo belvedere!
Outra linda foto dessa cidade encantadora!

Destaque para o pdv escolhido, a composição, o manuseio da luz (difícil) e as cores obtidas!
