[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
Two days before the TE Meeting in Lisbon, we had an anticipation and met Filipe, an unpleasant, rainy and windy evening. But it was not an obstacle to take any photos during a walk along the Parque das Nações, when the rain stopped.

The meeting point was the Vasco da Gama Mall, which entry I caught in this photo taken from the interior of the Estación de Oriente, a spectacular architectural work of Santiago Calatrava.

The WS 1 is a capture from the opposite point of view, from the entry of the Vasco da Gama Mall, where it is possible to see the Estación de Oriente.

In the WS 2 you can see my wife with Filipe, posing both at the entry of the Oceanário.

-----------------------------------

Dos días antes del encuentro TE en Lisboa, tuvimos un anticipo y nos encontramos con Filipe, una tarde desapacible, lluviosa y con viento. Pero eso no fue un obstáculo para tomar algunas fotos durante un paseo por el Parque das Nações, cuando paró de llover.

El punto de encuentro fue el Centro Comercial Vasco da Gama, cuya entrada capté en esta foto tomada desde el interior de la Estación de Oriente, una obra espectacular de Santiago Calatrava.

El WS 1 es una toma desde el punto de vista opuesto, desde la entrada del Centro Comercial vasco da Gama, donde se puede ver la Estación de Oriente.

En el WS 2 podéis ver a mi esposa con Filipe, posando en la entrada del Oceanário.

Hola Josep,

el parco do nacoes is a really playground for photo-lovers. Maybe the lght is too strong for my taste...but perspective, symmentries and depth are more than ok
ciao
Silvio

PS: I took a similar shot as well..but I still didn't post yet

Bonjour Josep,
Jolie composition présentant l'entrée de ce centre commercial à l'architecture typiquement "calatravienne". Bon choix de cadrage avec un bel effet de symétrie qui met en valeur la structure graphique de l'édifice. Le point de vue apporte une belle profondeur à l'image et invite à traverser ce couloir pour rejoindre les passants et entrer dans le centre commercial. Bon travail.
Amicalement,
Christian

Hi Josep
you should post that photo in the WS with Felipe and your wife, how funny is that! Memories, life is all about creating memories!

In discussion, a Mall would probably not top the list of any photographer as a subject, but this would be the extreme argument. Wow, what a photogenic subject this turned out to be.
perspective lines going everywhere. i'm so glad you took this shot. Very well composed and executed.
enjoy your day

Olá Josep!
Uma composição muito boa aqui! Gosto especialmente dos detalhes da arquitectura e da presença das pessoas a passar. Creio que não é um pov muito visto e visto asim, nem se nota o mau tempo:)!

Hola Josep!
Wonderful architectural details!
I was there back in 2004 !!!
Truly beautiful picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov, symmetrical composition, horizontal format and contrasts are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Cheers,

Hola Josep,
És espectacular aquesta obra del Calatrava.
M'agrada molt el punt de vista que has agafat, amb totes les linees fugant al mateix punt i amb els reflexes i colors brillants dels vidres.
Perfecta simetria.
Els dos WS també estan molt bé.
Una abraçada, Carlos

Bonjour, mon cher ami Josep,
Un cadrage réalisé au mm ! l'effet de perspective est excellent.

Félicitations pour ces présentations très réussies et fort intéressantes.
Amitiés.

Hi Josep

the lines of the ground and ceiling are converging towards the mall entrance, and you get a stunning essay on the white/green hue.
Cheers

Hola Josep.
Las fantasticas imagenes que hoy nos muestras, son desconocidas para mi, pues esta obra es posterior a mis visitas a la ciudad.
Esta imagen interior es maravillosa y tiene una gran perspectiva, me gusta el suave colorido y buena iluminacion, el marco perfecto con la gama de color de la imagen.
Me gusta mucho la arquitectura de la imagen del WS, me recuerda un poco la Ciudad de las Artes de Valencia.
Como siempre un trabajo esplendido y completo para dar una vision de conjunto.
Un fuerte abrazo para ti y Pili.
Luis.

Olá amigo Josep,

Este local é sem duvida um grande ponto de encontro para muitas pessoas que se cruzam em Lisboa.
O pov é fantástico e apresenta uma grande profundidade, mostra uma parte importante da obra do arquiteto espanhol Calatrava que muito nos orgulha com seu trabalho.
As tonalidades do vidro verde estão muito bem presentes na tua foto mesmo num dia chuvoso muito bem gerida e luminosidade.
Foi uma tarde que eu gostei muito pela conversa e pelo passeio, tu e a tua mulher são pessoas extraordinárias que gostei muito de conhecer.Obrigado.

Um abraço,
Filipe

nota: gracias por su WS

ciao Josep,
ottimo il contrasto di colore tra il bianco dell'architettura e il verde acqua delle parti invetro.
Inquadratura ampia sulla scena con un ottima resa data dalla luce perfettamente calibrata,
saluti

Très bonne précision dans le cadrage, la profondeur, les reflets, une architecture ultra moderne comme toutes celle de ce grand architecte Santiago Calatrava.

Hi Josep,
Excellent POV on this very graphical building. I love the symetry of the composition. The perspective lines of the roof and of the ramps add some nice depth.
Have a nice day,

Hola Don Josep!

Una ver más los elemetos arquitectónicos, su grafismo, sus formas y volumenes...y una gran colección de reflejos y colores. Una gran fotografía, llena de detalles bajo esta perfecta definición...Un gran trabajo...


Feliz fin de semana...

Manu

PS: Hoy he vuelto a visitar tu página...Tremenda!! Gran trabajo, amigo...

Hola Josep

Muy creativa toma del interior del Centro comercial con perfecta simetria, lo que la hace mas interesante para apreciar a la obra de Calatrava
Me gusta el tono verdoso, realzado por el marco

Buen fin de semana desde Buenos Aires
Maria

Simpatico el WS con tu esposa, se nota q lo esta pásando bien

Hola Josep,
I remember well this place. Aires took me there first time for the blue hour and then I came back again during the day. I spent some time there trying to show the beauty of this place (while my wife was shopping) but I was not very happy with my results. Your composition is brilliant but wat strikes me here most except for fantastic geometry is also the greenish touch. May be it is a consequence of the water and white sky which created this very interesting effect here.
Very well done.
Have a great weekend,
M

Hola Josep,

Hola my friend Josep
Another monumental work by Calatrava. The lines & curves, the fins are part of Calatrava style. Fine symmetrical picture with the escalators on either side. The green in the centre is very soothing. Thanks for the WS posts!

Hola Josep,
You managed to post the wonderful place on picture, I was trying almost two years ago to catch.
The multitude of glassware on those modern buildings have a magnificent effect on colors.
POV is super, depth and clarity are immaculate.
Bona tarda,
Ike
