Ola Goncalo,

a real good capture, the conversion to black and white was a very good decision! perfect lead in and drive trough with the rails of the elevator!

thanks for sharing, um abraco, Bernd

Hello,
Very nice pov for made this black and white picture of Lisbonne. I like the men walking not easy this mount...

Have a nice day,
Thierry

Ola Goncalo!
I love wide angle because it distorts and stretches the world in such a marvellous way! Of course not all the photos are going well with 10 mm, but you have found an excellent opportunity to show its merits. The rails and cables give a great depth to the result. The old man is a bonus, and B&W conversion works very well to reduce the complexity, emphasizing on the perspective graphics of your photo.
Best regards,
Deniz

Bonsoir Gonçalo,
Interessant POV,avec une excellente qualité d'image.
Merci du partage.

Hi Gonçalo,
In Lisbon people do not need to go to the gym...I remember during my visit to your beautiful city that I fell dead at the end of the day. Imposing shot in B&W, these rails and cables give a lot of character to your image.

Cheers,
Juan

Ciao Goncalo,
un esercizio in B&N realizzato con gusto e tecnica.
Gamma molto estesa di grigi e ottima prospettiva e profondità.
Buona serata

Acho que estás a deixar o pessoal envergonhado:)!Mais outra boa contribuição para o tema! Gosto do pov, da composição com o homem a passar e até do efeito dos fios em cima.A conversão foi certamente uma boa ideia para disfarçar a chuvada que aí vinha:)!

Hi Goncalo

Hi Goncalo

The hill seems steep, and the use of the wide angle includes a man trying to reach the top.
Cheers

Hi Goncalo,
A superb graphical shot. Very artistic angle, well seen.
Have a beautiful day.

Hi Goncalo
amazing POV this and so sharp with exceptional DOF and sharpness considering F3.5! It is an intriguing image and works so well in B&W. You just want to roll down the hill and see what is around the bend. Love it!

Olá Gonçalo

Love the downward pov in this superb b&w image. Good linear perspective with the tram lines converging towards the vanishing point. The man adds scale. Good graphism & tonal range. Tfs!

Ciao Goncalo,
spettacolare bianco e nero, fantastiche geometrie, ottima la presenza dell'uomo a destra.
fantastico lavoro
peppe

Ciao Gonçalo,

una bella e lunga prospettiva in discesa accentuata dai binari che attira l'occhio come un magnete! Sembra di scivolare giù verso il mare! Buon bianco e nero che crea una atmosfera "retrò" e buona anche la presenza del signore che sale. Mi piace il forte contrasto e le textures delle pietre nel selciato. Un documento di una Lisbona meno conosciuta.

Buona serata,
Donato

Ola dear Goncalo

I love these converging lines, what wonderful perspective you have seen and captured. The B&W was a superb choice and is well contrasted, accentuated by the textures of the ground below. Excellent vertical frame and the person walking towards the frame gives us some dynamism and sense of movement.

Um abraco

Ola Goncalo,
nice the vertical format,the created depth from the tram lines as the electrical wires hanging on the air.I like the existence of the 'climbing' man in the narrow road with the B/W format to be superb.

Have a good day,Danos

The parallel track-lnes give excelent DOF to the image, Goncalo.
B&W was good choise for WB, as the wires above give good contrast.
The man climbing seem to be used to do this daily...
Bom dia
Ike

Oi o Gonçalo,
a pessoa que escala o declive é importante na composição desta fotografia artística e criativa, as grades fora as quais convergem longe, também. Realização de qualidade excelente. Bravo.
Dia bom.
Amicalement
Joël

Hi Goncalo,
Well framed in a vertical presentation, perfect for the subject with lines to give depth, good idea also with the b&w for contrast, interesting the man to add a detail and life at the view.

Hello Goncalo,
Wonderful composition, beautiful view to the street with the tram lines, excellent POV and great depth, lovely light and contrast, the presence of a man is adding to the atmosphere, very nice framework, TfS!
Warm regards, Vasilis.

Olá Gonçalo,
otra espléndida composición en la Calçada da Gloria, utilizando solamente la pendiente de la calle, su perspectiva y el grafismo de los raíles y los cables, con la inclusión del hombre que sube por la calle, para obtener un buen resultado fotográfico.
El blanco y negro da un buen dramatismo a la imagen.
Bien hecha.
Um abraço,
Josep

Olá Gonçalo,

Boa fotografia,gosto do pov e da inclusão do homem na foto, é interessante e mostra bem o esforço para subir esta rua. A conversão para preto e branco acrescentou mais expressão e contraste.

Um abraço,
Filipe

Hello Goncalo,

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent B/W tone, so it's impressive to see the track rail of elevator with the slope. You're thinking and doing well the corner of this rail as setting bottom-right and bottom-left. It's interesting in buildings of both side, too. And, it's effective for the perspective way in this photo.

Bonjour Goncalo
Very nice picture with a well built composition, excellent perspective and i like the human presence to the right! Great work!
Have a nice WE
Best regards

Hi Gonçalo,
Congratulations for this beautiful perspective. The tracks bring us straight in front. I find that the treatment in black and white gives a drama to your image, reinforced by a threatening sky.
Sincerely,
Delphine

The wide angle distortion works well. The perspective looks good & the depth created in 3 levels...the man, the cable poles work well to create the 3D feel. Good conversion to B&W. Good work!

Hi Goncalo,

I really enjoy photographs with people figures in it.

These figures may be either small or large but in my opinion they should be in the photo. This simple operation adds life to a photo, makes it more interesting .
The result of this simple operation, we can watch it in this photo. The photo lives ...

Regards,
Mirek

Hello Goncalo,

your perspective accentuates and makes palpable how steep that street is. The cables, the rails, the man's attitude are enhanced by the choice of black and white. Bravo
