Hello Ricardo, it seems rather heavily post-processed or it is HDR, looks more like a painting than a real photo. Anyway, marvellous view of this narrow street during sunset. Fantastic sunset sky, nice inclusion of the woman admiring the spectacle of nature on her balcony.

Kind regards Malgo

Hello Ricardo,
Very nice capture from Brazil. The pov and layout is just perfect but more than this, this colorfull sky is just top of the top.
The cobble stone pavement in the lower part adds a unique taste to your compo.
TFS and best regards

Very beautiful colors in your street scene. A charming image, well captured.

Hello Ricardo,

Good sharpness and the curved street adds deep perspective guiding the eye towards the fantastic bg sunset with its glorious contrasting colors of yellow and orange against the blue clouds. Tfs!

Hi Ricardo,beautiful street in this ols part of the city and a great work in PP,now looks like a painting so well saturared and sharp,i like it! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Ricardo,
Very pretty buildings seen along the nicely curving cobbled street. The church towers are fine focal points in the background, but the most eye-catching elements of the photo are the marvellous and well saturated colours.
Kind regards,

Hello Ricardo,
I am becoming more amenable to HDR and now use it myself from time to time. It brings an agreeable painterly quality to this lovely composition. I like the perspective looking down this empty street. Superb rendering of the details in the cobblestones and the decorative details on the houses.

I really like the composition but not the treatment the image has been given. It screams HDR and that ruins it for me. Reminds me of the work of Thomas Kinkade and I'm not a fan :-(

Bonjour Ricardo,

J'avais bien hâte d'arriver à cette photo dans la galerie,La rue pavée est magnifique et la légère courbe pousse le regard au loin vers ce ciel extraordinaire.



Ciao Ricardo, great view of lovely alley, fantastic sky, wonderful warm colors, excellent perspective and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Ricardo,

We get a nice picture with specially colours at the sky.
Nice narrow street with the old cobblestones.
Light and colours are pleasant.
Sharpness and clarity of the pictures
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hello Ricardo,
This empty street gives the impression that Ouro Preto is an open air museum. But I know that there are many people living.
The wonderful architecture, the cobblestones and the two towers of the church provide a very charming view.
Yet the most exiting part of the picture is that unusual sky with all possible colours in.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ricardo,

Excellent HDR work.

Best Wishes,

Hello Ricardo,
The sky looks pretty dramatic with well-saturated colours and beautifully shaped clouds. The street is lovely as well and the curve makes the composition more dynamic. Well captured.

Bonjour, cher Ricardo,
Une réussite photographique sans conteste. L'ambiance générale qui se dégage est une réussite;
Un moment de grâce.
Superbe !

Olá Ricardo, muito boa vista desta rua interessante e bonita com um céu espetacular no fundo, muito bem composto e capturado nesta foto boa e bonita. Uma imagem interessante, com boa nitidez, profundidade, luz, cor e qualidade. Muito bom e bonito trabalho feito com perfeição, meus parabéns meu amigo. Obrigado por compartilhar este trabalho interessante.

Boa tarde e final de semana feliz.
Tudo de melhor do sul da Espanha.

Olá Ricardo,
bonita imagem de Ouro Preto aqui, e o melhor, conseguiu capturar uma rua vazia. O HDR foi pesado aqui, mas um céu como esse não poderia passar desapercebido.
Parabéns e Abraço,
