Old, many were the existing azenhas and many were the millers who if dislocated here to first grind its flour and its cereals, this place until were called Beach of the Millers and only later, were Azenhas of the Sea

Hi Goncalo,
Wonderful POV and excellent light over that town. Your colors are very saturated!

The clarity and sharpness are just amazing. You almost feel as if you were standing on that cliff. The colors are outstanding with the town drenched in a warm glow thanks to the sunlight and a magnificent blue ocean. The horizon is in a good spot as well with the sky taking up a third of the picture.

Well done

Hi Goncalo!

Superb work! A very striking POV and a wonderful view.
The last rays of the sun like a blessing on the village... the softness of the sky... the movements of the sea that come to lick the pool, and the bright colors: I like everything very much. Bravo!

Olá Gonçalo,
Tinha a sensação que tinhas mais do que dois posts anteriores com esta perspectiva. Apesar do PdV ser o mesmo, são fotos bastante diferentes e é muito interessante compará-las. Se é certo que a vista é muito pitoresca, todos sabemos que isso não basta para conseguir fotos tão atraentes como esta ou as outras. A mistura dos tons quentes do sol poente e do azul do céu e do mar junta-se ao padrão geométrico das casas penduradas na arriba para fazer uma imagem lindíssima.
Um abraço, José.

Bonsoir Goncalo
WOW toute une belle scène près de la mer dans de superbe couleurs chaudes et invitantes.

Olá, Gonçalo!

O lugar é muito bonito! E as cores do final da tarde ficaram sensacionais pra mostrar esse belo povoado quase em meio ao oceano! Belíssimo trabalho!

Hi Goncalo,
Good pov to show a resident quarter on the cliff, nice color in a sunny day where there have beautiful blue sky, golden sunlight and tides, distinct image, well done.

Hi Goncalo,
Warm evening light, perfect composition and balance, and a stunning subject makes this a great piece of photographic work. The 40x did a fine job for you here. Very well seen and TFS. Gerald

hi goncalo,
I like the bright and vivid colour in this, nice POV, contrat and framing.
well done

Bom dia Gonçalo, tens aqui uma luz e cores fantásticas de um local já bem conhecido. A verdade é que nunca me canso de olhar para este ajuntamento de casas à beira do precipício. Parece que vinham em peregrinação e agora estão a tentar decidir como fazer para ultrapassar este obstáculo. E enquanto uma caravela não aparecer vão ficando...
um abraço,

Oi Gonçalo

Acho que se eu morasse aí dormiria do lado de fora só para olhar o mar no meio da noite. Um lugar incrível e uma foto fantástica. Parabéns.

The warm golden glow is wonderfully complimented by the vivid blue ska and sky.

Great POV and beautiful colors.

Hi Goncalo,

The capture of the poser of the sea is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the village, it is also leading our eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the photo. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.


Olá Gonçalo.
Quelle belle photo ! J'aime ce village blanc qui s'accroche à la falaise sous la belle lumière. Les bleus de la mer et du ciel mettent en valeur les couleurs des rocher.
Superbe !

Hola Goncalo!
Este foto es estupenda, con sus colores tan vivos, del mar, del acantilado y del pueblo soleados! La composiciòn es perfecta, y debe ser como vivir en un paraiso, tenendo tal vista desde su casa! Es una piscina a bajo?
Algunas casa estan muy cerca de la orilla! Espero que el acantilado no vaya a derrumbarse!
Muchas gracias por compartir!

Hello Goncalo

I love the lighting of this picture and the interplay of sunlight and shadows. The different hues of the ocean contrast well with the golden cliff and buildings.

Prelepa slika i prelep grad, jedna od drzava koje cu sigurno posetiti.

Hi Goncalo
A beautiful, postcard perfect image. The curve of the rock looks almost manmade, and the red roof buildings look superb against the blue sea and wonderfully active sky. Perfect composition, colour and light and a fascinating subject with a great note, thank you.
Best wishes

Hi Goncalo,
Superb utilisation of the great light cast on these sea cliffs. I like the motion provided by the breaking waves and gradual hue change in the sky and water. The village looks very interesting and the uniform architecture is a great subject for the composition.

Boa tardes Goncalo,
Not seeing you much on TE posting's, so i taken the opportunity to look into the main-page photos of yours.
Great divided the view over cliif-top town. Contrast to blue sea is exquisite on the morning light.
