Dear All,

I'm joking with the title of my last picture from Pena Palace... for now !

I put in WS the same achitecture's from another angle.

The fantastic Palácio da Pena is one of the best examples of 19th-century Romantic revivalism in Portugal.

Situated at the top of the Monte da Pena, the palace was built on the site of an old monastery belonging to the Order of St. Jerome. It was the fruit of the imagination of Dom Fernando of Saxe Coburg-Gotha, who married the queen Dona Maria II in 1836. After falling in love with Sintra, he decided to buy the convent and the surrounding land to build a summer palace for the royal family.

I hope you enjoy it

Hi Aires.

Excellent silhouettes!!! The contrast with the background is great.

Hmm, let me guess, four and half? Nice picture Aires. The silhouettes against the blue sky create a very nice contrast. Very good definition and colors. Cheers :-)

Very good silhouettes with both monument and people in front of this blue sky. Very well done.

Hi Aires, good silhouette reflection of palace and the two people sitting next to the pillars. Image appears lacking in contrast and also a tilt to the right. I hve done a ws for you which please c and let me know your thoughts. A beautifull composition against the blue sky and thank you for the note.

Good shot with nice silhouettes here: they are very neat and the little dome is fascinating too.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Aires,
a very interesting silhouette. And also something for amusement.
Much appreciated.
Regards Ulf

Hi Aires,

I think we can see two people, I like the dark silhouettes against the sky and certainly against the white cloud behind the tower. Very well done!. Thanks for sharing.

Ola Aires,
Two persons, am I right? :)
I like the dark silhoettes of the tower on the blue sky and the composition is very good.
It's a wonderful place, Sintra.

Nice shape of the silhouetted palace which contrasts well with the blue sky. Good framing too.

Excelente composição fotográfica aqui, Aires.
As formas arquitetônicas, em harmonia com as formas humanas, contrastando com o céu azul, resultaram em uma linda fotografia.

Um abraço
