Hello Alexandre,
Oh, at first I thought it was a glass door with a reflection, but now I see it's an iron gate. It frames the cemetery at the other side so well. The yellow goes together really well with the shades of blue. Excellent composition with a very pleasant light.

Ola Alexandre,
the door of the cemetery looks so heavy with the two skulls to decorate perfect the two parts of it.The tight frame enhance even more the details of it.


Most times, Alexandre, I do not like to write about cemetery pictures, but this entrance looks strange - and only due to the crossed-bones and skulls depicted on the doors.
This is very usual, in my humble opinion. But the picture is showing the sight through the bars and good added part of blue sky.
Bom novo dia,

Hello Alexandre,
The gate could make me think this is a cemetery for pirates. The skulls and crossed bones inevitably catch my attention, but it is in every way a well composed and interesting photo with a fine symmetry and an interesting view of the tombs through the gate. It is not the most common kind of photo on TE, so it serves well the purpose of teaching something about the world. It is no disadvantage that it's also a technically fine photo.
Kind regards,

Bonjour Alexandre,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image.La légère contre plongée donne une belle ampleur à la porte et la symétrie est parfaite. En, plus on voit bien derrière.



Hello Alexandre,
Nice capture of this beautiful gate in Sabara.
Allthough it opens the way to another world, your capture is a perfect one, showing partially what's behind it.
TFS and best regards

bela vista do portal com as caveirinhas sinistras na parte de baixo e as gavetas adiante. uma compo bem feita.
por aqui estamos no meio das faltas causadas pela greve, na loja já não há ovos, batata, frango, fermento, leite está acabando.. combustível e gás já acabaram na cidade. mas sobrevivemos, é uma cidade pequena, nos viramos com o que temos. mas e vcs que vivem nas metrópoles? difícil. um perigo a coisa explodir de vez..

Hello Alexandre,

Effective door framing on the portal with fantastic sharpness and wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the pale tan yellow and the blue tones. Tfs!

An unambiguous symbol on the gate indicates that there the dead are resting, very well captured and framed
regards Ryszard

Ciao Alexandre, lovely composition with beautiful gate of sad plece, foine details, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Alexandre

The yellow arch is framing well the doors. The point of view is showing the details of the metal doors of the cemetery. The light is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.

hello Alexandre,

Interesting entrance to the cemetery. Nice composition. I have seen some beautiful cemeteries in Latin America - Recoleta in Buenos Aires, cemeteries in Chile and in Cuba. Nice colours and sharpness.

Kind regards MAlgo

Bonjour, cher ami Alexandre,
Voilà une composition originale avec ce portail orné de têtes de mort (l'ambiance sympathique dès l'entrée), quant à la suite, j'ai l'impression d'être dans un columbarium ou similaire.

Hello Alexandre,

I was very surprised by the details on the huge, ornamental gates to the cemetery. I understand that they link to the contents of the cemetery but the skull and crossbones is the normal symbol for pirates! I'm sure that the cemetery is not full of the remains of pirates!!
However, you have given us a fine photograph, neatly cropped symmetrically, with good textural details.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hola Alexandre
Bon cadrage précis de la porte d'entrée très impressionnant avec les têtes de morts!! bonne lumière et couleurs
Bonne soirée

Hola Alexandre.
Muy original composicion, captada con una perfecta simetria de la puerta, adornada de forma muy tremenda, muy bonito como las verjas de la misma enmarcan las tumbas y los arboles asomando por encima, sobre un bonito cielo azul.
Colorido, nitidez y luminosidad se capturan de manera eficiente.
Muy buena composición. Me gusta.
Que tengas un buen día.
Cálidos saludos.

Hola Alexandre,

buena imagen de las puertas de este cementerio, me gusta el encuadre centrado donde la protagonista absoluta es la puerta y sus detalles, bien visto,

Un saludo,

Hello Alexandre,
A very nice view of beautiful gate in Sabara.
I like good composition,good light and superb colors.
Fine presentation

Hello Alexandre
A remarkable access to this cemetery.
The skulls and the bones beneath them are more reminiscent of a pirate flag than at the entrance of a graveyard.
Beautiful observation and excellent photographed.
Well done
Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Hi Alexandre,
after reading the title and the note I had a second look at this image.
Interesting: the decorating motifs resemble more a pirate flag than the cemetery but I suppose the motif is chosen for the same reason. Wonderful sky on the other side.
Also interesting design of the tombs.
Very interesting reportage,

Me gusta visitar cementerios ¡Creo que son lugares de descanso y meditación sobre NUESTROS o or LOS fallecidos, o sobre la vida y la muerte, que es el final inevitable para todos nosotros!
Siento que es triste eliminar los cementerios mediante la cremación.
Nos dicen mucho sobre la vida y las costumbres de una comunidad, una religión, un país.
A menudo están llenos de flores, como jardines de paz.
Esta es una bonita foto colorida con el amarillo al rededor + los árboles y el cielo azul sobre las tumbas vistas a través de la puerta.
Gracias por compartir y que tengas un buen domingo.
¡Pero, no me gusta mucho el cráneo en la puerta!
