Ola Alexandre,
The beautiful two side's identical houses are beautifully illuminated, where details shown marvelously.
There was some reflecting light on the lens from passing cars - but not a great issue, the place worth the interest, as you written about.
Boa tardes,

Hello Alexandro,
Except for the sign in Portuguese I could have thought this was somewhere in Germany. The buildings are nicely designed in any case, and with this illumination in the dark night they look terrific. Maybe best of all I like the lights from the cars. It's a cleverly exposed photo and the colours get a remarkable intensity in the black surroundings.
Best regards,

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hello Alexandre,
This is a very fine nocturnal image. I like half-timbered buildings and this gateway is nice looking with fine colors.

Very nice colorful twin houses, a good idea for a gate to a city, you have used the illumination of houses very well, great night photo
regards Ryszard

Dobro vece.
Lep pogled u noci i trenutak, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak u noci. Lepe fasade i detalji, lepa arhitektura u noci.
Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.

Good evening.
Nice view at night and a moment, good text ...
Beautifully shown, good contrast, beautiful colors, beautifully captured moment at night. Nice facades and details, beautiful architecture in the night.
I wish you a nice and peaceful night, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Hello Alexandre,
I expected this to be a picture of Blumenau ... but it's taken in the state of São Paulo.
Excellent light management. The building is standing out nicely and very sharp in the dark night.
What an unusual gateway to a city!
Best regards, Paul

Bonjour, cher Alexandre,
La Porte de la ville sait se montrer belle et accueillante sous cette forme. De plus, avec ces pans de bois, cela devient tout de suite plus agréable.
Cette image nocturne (difficile à réaliser) est fort bien rendue.

Salut Alexandre,
Well managed your night shot, good light capture, interesting effect with the white lines, interesting architecture, tfs.

Hello dear Alexandre and have a nice time
and a happy new day
lights and shadows here play together

Hello Alexandre, There are low temperatures, does it also happens that it snows there? Beautiful night shot. The interesting building of the gate to the town. A kind of half-timbered construction. Lovely picture.
Kind regards Malgo

bela vista desse conhecido portal germânico que simboliza a cidade. o efeito da iluminação contra o fundo escuro ficou bacana e diferente da vista comum que temos desse local.
uma coisa que sempre achei curiosa é que quando aqui faz frio de verdade, na mantiqueira não faz e quando aqui está com frio fraco lá é forte.


Hola Alexandre.
Magnífica esta composicion nocturna, en la cual destaca el arco de entrada a la poblacion y las dos casas de forma muy simetrica a ambos lados, por cierto que su arquitectura me recuerda las casas de entramado de madera de Alemania.
Buen manejo de la luminosidad y una nitidez excelente.
Muy bien hecho. Mis felicitaciones.
Todo lo mejor y un gran dia.

Hello Alexandro,
Very nice nocturnal capture from Campos do Jordao.
The composition and colors are also very good.
Nice presentation.

Hi Alexandre,

You have captured well the light made by the moving cars. Using a tripod and probably a slow shutter speed is showing the details of the houses and of the gate. It also has a special effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

Ola Alexandre,

I like the symmetry of the 2 half timbered buildings either side framing the road. A superb nocturnal shot with good sharpness. The long time exposure has also given a light trail of a passing car. Tfs!

Hello Alexandre
When I first saw the photo, I thought for a moment that you had made a trip to Germany or Austria. I do not immediately think of Brazil with this half-timbered architecture.
Wonderful result in this nocturnal atmosphere.
Well done
Have a nice day, groet Rob

Hola Alexandre
Belle nocturne, le rendu des détails, des couleurs, la prise de l'éclairage, les filés des voitures, belle présentation
Bonne journée

Olá Alexandre, muito boa fotografia noturna desta linda entrada da cidade, muito bem captada nesta interessante imagem, com boa nitidez, luz, cor e qualidade. Muito bom e interessante trabalho perfeitamente feito, meus parabéns meu amigo. Obrigado por compartilhar este belo trabalho.

Boa tarde e final de semana feliz.
Saudações calorosas do sul da Espanha.

Hi Alexandre,
what a lovely gate to the city. I thought at first these are stylish houses in a remote village so the trails of the car in the very middle of the road worked quite surprising.
Very original night photography.
Have a great weekend,

O portal à noite ficou excelente, com ótimos efeitos e realçando bem as formas suíças da arquitetura. Excelente trabalho!

Ola Alexandre Nobody can miss the city gate at night, given thier elegant design. Your photo essay turned into a masterpiece of accurate exposure despite harsh light on the buildings. Very well done. Abraços
