Hi dear TE friends

Place : Marvão

Theme: (Trip) Portugal,on North of Alentejo (I)
To see: map view

Marvão - World Heritage candidat
Nearby the border with Spain, situated between Castelo de Vide and Portalegre, on the highest point of the lovely São Mamede mountain, in Alentejo, is situated this charming village of Marvão.
In a peacefull and relaxing environment, surrounded by 13th and 17th century defensive walls, Marvão rises high, with its lovely white houses, narrow and winding streets, showing that time is not as quick as it often seems.
The archaeological vestiges of the region date back to the Palaeolithic and Neolithic Period, with many menhirs and antas all around the area, as well as an important Roman archaeological station.
A spectacular medieval walled village perched 900 metres high on a rocky crag.


I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends

Olá Filipe.
Tudo bem contigo?

a vista é extraordinária com a vista sobre a vila e os montes ao fundo, criando um enquadramento de grande beleza.
Lidaste muito bem com a luz que se vê ser bem forte e do meio do dia.
O ponto fraco, ou menos bom, da tua foto é o faco de se notar uma dominante de cor naquele primeiro edificio que era suposto ser branco, talvez o que devesses ter feito ao acertar as cores era criar uma outra camada, independente da original para que depois não se notasse no resto da foto o acerto de cores.
Outro detalhe, este já não sei se são as cores da Nikon conhecidas por serem mais saturadas do que outras marcas, mas parece-me que exageraste um pouquinho.
De resto tens aqui uma bela foto e um enquadramento muito bonito.

Abraço.
Paulo

Olá, Filipe!

Bonita vista da cidade construída no topo da montanha! A foto tem uma profundidade muito boa, com as montanhas ao fundo muito bonitas, além do céu que está igualmente belo! Belíssima composição! Bom trabalho!

Verry good photo with nice colours and subject.Well done.Regards.Alin.

Olá Filipe. Um POV muito bom a dar uma grande sensação de profundidade. Elementos muito bem colocados emparticular a gurita e as primeiras casas. As camadas de montanhas fazem também um efeito muito bom. Quanto às cores, sou obrigado a concordar com o PAulo Mendonça :) ou então o meu monitor está marado :). Um abraço. Paulo

Ola Filipe,
It's not yet done with the UNESCO World heritage ? The place deserves it, one of my favorites in Portugal. The PoV from the castle is good but you have spoiled this image adding too much color saturation, more is not always better...
Have a nice day JY

Olá Filipe,
realmente um local bem bonito e interessante esse no alto do morro. A visão é impressionante e gostei das cores fortes também em sua foto.
Parabéns e Abraço

well Filipe,
a very nice view here from a nice place, I like the light in the shot and the fine balance, good perspective, fine photo job here, have a nice evening.

Olá Filipe,
Beautiful capture of this interesting village on top of the hill. Nice with the green gardens on the foreground and great view over the forested mountains.
Best regards, Paul

Hola Filipe.
Beautiful place on top of the mountain with a magnificent panoramic view, your high POV is good and also your frame. Maybe your saturation is a little too much, otherwise your photo is very good.
Have a nice week ahead.
Best regards.

Esta vista sobre a zona histórica de Marvão está muito boa apesar das cores demasiado puxadas. A imagem tem uma tonalidade azul muito acentuada o que a torna um bocado irreal.
António

Oi amigo ,
Um belo ponto de visão sobre a igreja os jardins e a muralha deste lugar magnifico , já estive aqui uma vez , gostei das cores , só foi pena parede da igreja ter ficado com uns tons azulados , bonitos detalhes da muralha no primeiro plano , boa profundidade de foto,parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Hi Filipe, the photo seems to me a bit oversaturated but still wonderful view of this Ale ntejo town. Charming church and the regular garden. Nice city walls.

Regards

Malgorzata

Olá, Filipe!
Portugal me traz lindas lembranças. É um país que amo de paixão. Linda imagem, belo trabalho. A única coisa que falta é uma nota em português. Parabéns!

Hello Felipe,

the view of this village is really fine and deserving, but there is something in the colours that doesn't convince me. Maybe it's my monitor but I see too much saturation and perhaps, due to the strong light, you used the highlights/shadows tool to reduce highlights. The result is not satisfying.

Best regards,
Donato

Hi Filipe,
nice presentation of this sight with great point of view. The walls are nice to see with all the houses and the greeneries. A bit over saturated colours through PP. But others are O.k. DOF is very good. Brilliant contrast with the sky. A very well composed capture. Tfs.
Have a nice day.

Olá Filipe,
Não vou insistir na história das cores (li as críticas e respostas). Também concordo que há diferenças enormes entre monitores.
Apesar de tudo, gostei da foto.
Cumprimentos,
F.

Ciao Filipe,
bella immagine di questo castello, fantastici colori con tendenza all'azzurro.
Buona settimana.
Peppe

Hi Filipe,
Nice shot. I like your POV and framing. TFS

Hola Filipe.
Una extraordinaria vista con un gran panorama a su alrededor, la saturacion del color produce un efecto bonito y original, la situacion de esta villa es grandiosa.
Un abrazo.
Luis.

Ola Filipe
As cores fortes ficaram muito bonitas.
Excelente perspectiva de Marvão. Já lá estive mas estava tanto nevoeiro que nao deu para fazer boas fotos
Um abraco Amigo

Hi Filipe,
a nice panoramic shot of Marvão with the hill to dominates the whole area.I don't know about the World Heritage candidate but the colours and especially the blue and the green are oversaturate.As i read your answer PixelTerror you must calibrate the colours of your screen.

Have a nice day,Danos

Hello Filipe, i think you choose de perfect POV to catch this wonderful place. Personaly i found the sturation a bit to much. But that's a question of personal taste.
I hope this place would get the World Heritage status because it is wonderful.

Hi Filipe,

Good composition of the picture, with many details to consider. Maybe the colors a bit overexposed, but I guess it was your intention.

Depuis ce POV on a un bel aperçu du village et de tout ce qui l'entoure, un paysage splendide sous un bel effet de lumière et un bon rendu des couleurs
Have a nice week end

Bonjour, cher Filipe,
Je suis toujours émerveillé par vos compositions où les couleurs pétillent de mille feux.
La vue plongeante sur ce petit village est de toute beauté.
Une réalisation qui réchauffe les yeux et le coeur.
Amitiés.
Philippe

Hi Filipe.

Excellent view! The lovely POV with that depth and the colours creates a lovely picture!

Well done!

Hi Filipe,
Beautiful image! The sky looks very impressive. I also like this simple composition with fantastic depth of field. Congratulations!
Thanks for sharing,
Darek

Hello Filipe,
Verry good photo with nice colours and subject.Nice shot. I like your POV and framing.

Hello Filipe,
Interesting view of the city. Great sharpness and beautiful colours.
Best wishes,
Achim

Hello Filipe

Wonderful portrait of the little village. The composition is exellent, and the sharpness and DOF as well. I like the way your well chosen POV enables the old wall in the lower part to correspond with the mountains in the background. Very good work! Thanks for sharing.

Best regards, Erling

Zdravo.
Manastiri i crkve stitili su se bedemima, sada ih ovom dobrom fotografijom, kompozicijom i bojama, pokazujete nama da gledamo i uzivamo u lepotama ove stare arhitekture. Dobar rad.
Puno pozdrava i uspeh u daljem radu , Paja.

Oi Filipe!
O lugar é bem interessante e muito bonito!
Sua foto está muito boa e atraente!
Gosto do nível de nitidez, da exposição, da profundidade, do ponto de vista bem escolhido e privilegiado e das cores! A composição é eficiente e com resultados visuais muito belos e convidativos!
Parabéns, abraços e até logo!
Neyvan

Olá Filipe,

Linda cidade construída no topo da montanha e cercada por antigas muralhas. Excelente POV, que deu muita profundidade à imagem. Ótimos detalhes e muito boa nitidez.

Abraços e bom final de semana
Leonor

Ola Filipe! Amazing cityscape, excellent landscape. Nice lightness, fantastic colours. Perfect POV and capture. Good exposure. Very good focus. Saude!

Hi Filipe,
very difficult light but you managed it really well.
The point of view is so great that it was worth to work on that. The setting of this village is breathtaking. Your composition is excellent: I like the wall with such a rich texture in the foreground and an amazing mountain panorama on the horizon,
Great work,
M

Olá Filipe,
Dando largas à minha má-língua alentejana, por este andar há-de continuar a ser só candidata por muitos e muitos anos. Dizem as (outras :) más-línguas que o dossier de candidatura foi considerado muito mauzinho. Mas não me parece que Marvão precise da classificação. Escolheste muito bem o enquadramento, com a muralha do castelo em 1º plano e a parte visível da vila dando a ideia clara de como está empoleirada no cimo do morro. Acho que exageraste na saturação e no balanço de cores - as paredes da igreja estão meio azuladas meio-esverdeadas e no geral está um bocado para o escuro.
Um abraço,
José

Olà Filipe,

it really seems to be a very beautiful place, good pov and details, the nice church seems to be a bit too blueish

Parabéns!

Ola Filipe

You really have a nice gallery with bold and vibrant colors. It was a bit difficult the select one of your photographs, in the end I clicked this one. You have selected an excellent view point to frame the picture. The color hues are very bold and well saturated, however what borders me a bit is the blueish tint which most probably was produced by the extraordinary light you had. So far I had this phenomena very seldom, despite being since more then 40 years in photography. What so ever you photograph is very impressive. Well done

best regards
Urs

Hi Filipe,
Great depth with this pov and these walls in the fg of your photo, strong colors ... maybe too much blue ...

Hola Filipe,
Precioso día y magnifica captura, yo no tuve tanta suerte cuando estuve ahí, el dia estaba un poco nublado.
Excelente composición tomando el primer plano el castillo para darle más profundidad.
No se si te habrá comentado José Pires que va a ir la Valle del Jerte la próxima semana, yo también voy a ir, asi que si te animas y puedes me encantaría que conocieras ese pedazo de mi tierra.
Un fuerte abrazo,
Charo

Ola Filipe!

Enquadramento maravilha! ponto de vista bem escolhido para dar um maximo de profundidade! O uso do filtro polarizador deu um toque original à fotografia que talvez não fosse necessario. Um abraço e bom fim de semana!

Antonio

Ola Filipe,
The view of the red roof-tops houses on top of a mountain here, remind me the view I saw in Belmonte: also built on high ridge and with a landscap scenery from all around, very similar.
Fine shot, a bit enhanced blue tone, but that's no matter at all.
Bom fim de seamana,
Ike

Hello Filipe, one of Portugal´s marvels in an extraordinary picture showing all the natural beauty and panoramic surroundings along with a historic place!
Great angle used to show an extended point of view, great sherpness and bright colors!
A beautiful souvenir from Portugal!
Best regards,
Eleni
