Bonjour, cher ami Stephen,
L'on doit préparer une fête ou bien la fête est terminée à voir les scènes (podiums) et les chaises empilées...
Merci de nous faire profiter d'une aussi belle façon votre voyage au Portugal, c'est un pur régal.

Good day.
Interesting and beautiful view, good text ...
Beautifully shown passage and architecture, good perspective and contrast, nice colors. Nice photo and memory.

Hi Stephen,

You has a good idea to use the arch to frame the scene, it is also creating depth. The point of view is showing the details of the arch and of the facade of the houses. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Stephen,
Nice shot of narrow, cobblestones street through the arch. The steel platforms are probable used by restaurants. Typical south Portuguese architecture.
Well done with long perspective, colors, light and sharpness.
Kind regards,

Nice street scene, I see the terrace is closed, no tables and chairs there. Quite a charming place, well captured.


Bonjour Stephen,

Tu devais vraiment rager de voir ces structures métalliques sur toute la longueur de cette rue. Sinon, la photo aurait été parfaite car tous les éléments sont réunis pour en faire une réussite.



Hello Stephen,

You have found lots of interesting viewpoints in this ancient city and this is another.
Arches are always a plus for a photographer, adding a natural frame and an effective funnelling attribute.
The cobbled surface is so well captured that it is almost palpable, whilst the receding lines of the buildings draw us deeper inwards. The lively sunlight, crossing the shady street, offers new hues and greater interest.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
Lovely and sunny today, after a very wet Monday!

Hello Stephen,

You took the arch as a perfect frame, the through look with the clothing in background is nice photographed.
Perspective and depth are perfect, also an excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Olá Stephen,
uma vista bem bonita e interessante aqui, gostei da profundidade que conseguiu capturar e dos detalhes também. Perfeito o corte vertical.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Hello Stephen, Nice view through the arch. Strange platforms. excellent perspective, nice colours.

Kind regrads Malgo

Hi Stephen
It's an amazing feeling to be the only person in the olde charming alley steeped in history when the early light was really great. Superb use of the archway for natural framing.aided by strong foreground detail. What amazing colour, that rustic 'feel' and all the textures. Very appealing composition, impressive capture, Congrats
Best regards

Excellent idea for a photo, I like this narrow cobblestones street, great view through the arch, great perspective
regards Ryszard

Ciao Stephen
peccato dover coprire il pavimento di sassi con quelle brutte pedane, la prospettiva sarebbe stata molto più bella, ma il commercio porta soldi....

Hi Stephen,

The arch nicely frames the bg narrow alley. I am curious what the metallic stands are there for. An impromptu stage performance or outdoor market perhaps? In any case it looks as though it has either finished setting up and will start later, or the show is over and the workmen will be along shortly to dismantle them. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Hello Stephen
Bonne profondeur de cette ruelle de pavés, belle entrée avec l'arche, passant de l'ombre a la lumière, beau ciel azur
Bonne soirée

Hello Stephen,
Excellent light management and wonderful POV have highlighted the charm of this ancient alley. I think I will include this in my Best of Arches theme. Do you remember what the risers were for?
