[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On one evening I met with Aires, Filipe and Paulo in Parc of the Nations to make some blue hour shots ( see )
. But it was raining and instead we had grey hour or tobacco shots. But we had a lot of fun, exchanged some ideas and toys and I learned something from good photographers. The next day I went to Evora, which I liked very much (I will show some not used POVs later) and in the evening I was returning to my hostel. In the Parque Eduardo VII, I spent an hour or so waiting for the blue, to make some exercises. But I was too impatient, the blue hour didn't come. The view from there is very beautiful when the day is clear. One can see Marques Pombal Monument, Castle Saint George and even the other side of Tagus River.

A very beautiful depth, rather impressive and saturated colors at point. Framing is perfect. Very beautiful discovery.A very nice cloudy sky.

Hello Malgorzata,
Maybe not really blue, but a very colourful evening anyway. The sunlight is very nicely reflected in the clouds and the distant buildings on the hill, and the very green lawns and hedges provide a dramatic contrast.
Kind regards,

Hello Malgorzata!
Those gardens in Lisbon are very attractive for the plants, monuments and view!
Your picture is very beautiful, with very good sharpness, exposure, pov, colors, dof and composition!
TFS - congratulations!
Best regards,

Ciao Malgo,
splendida prospettiva con le siepi a creare un bel motivo grafico in primo piano. Bellissima la luce sulla collina e sulle nuvole in un magnifico contrasto col cielo azzurro. I meeting riescono quasi sempre a regalare splendide immagini, come in questo caso.
Un caro abbraccio.

Podziwiam Lizbonę po ataku bomby neutronowej. Bo to chyba tak musiało być, skoro nie ma żadnych ludzi w tym mieście? :)

not an easy one with the light here Malgorzata
but even that I like the shot, it's well composed, the sky is great, good lines, perspective and contrast, nice photo job here, have a good day.
regard jaap

Namaste Malgorzata,
nice perspective and you have presented it with a nice high POV. Great to see the monuments and other visible part of town. Great light management which offers sufficient light to foreground details. Excellent job. Tfs.
Have a nice day.

Hi Malgorzata,
I remember this magnificient park, we were here something like sixteen years ago... A beautiful view indeed and some very fine colours. The late sunshine over the clouds and the castle of Saint George looks very pleasant!
Kind regards

Witaj Magorzata,

A superb light and a very impressice coloured shot. Great depht too, the green garden in the FG give an incredible prospect especially to the top of the Alfama well located in the light.
Have a nice week,

Ciao Malgorzata, nice waiting, splendid composition with wonderful clouds in fantastic sky, superb light on wonderful city, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

WItaj Malgosiu,
Szczesciara z Ciebie- ja na takie niebo czekalem tydzien, ale niestety takich chmurek nie udalo mi sie upolowac. Niesamowite swiatlo oraz kolorystyka.

Ola Malgorzata
Magnifica foto neste lindo local as cores estăo bem suaves de final de dia , mas o que gosto mais e o céu tem umas nuvens fantásticas com aqueles tons dourados , boa profundidade de foto, parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Witaj Malgosia,
Wspaniala kompozycja i ladne swiatlo i kolory. ale i tak jak zwykle workshopy ciekawsze niz glowna tematyka ;o)

Ola Malgorzata
IMpatient is the word, seems to have still a while to wait here before enjoying the blue hour, time for a ginjinha, or two, or a few bottles... Still here good graphical perspective under the warm cloud
Have a nice day JY

I guess the best of Lisboa is not blue hour.
In any case, here you've got a beautiful golden hour.

  • Great

Witaj Malgosiu!
Piekny widok,
super swiatlo w glebi kadru.
Ma zdjecie swoj klimat.

Ciao Margherita,
hai trovato una luce fantastica che ha colorato queste nuvole bellissime e anche la cittŕ

Świetny ten trawnik ze wspaniałym wzorem z niskiego żywopłotu, dalej pomnik i oświetlone złotym swiatłem miasto. a na niebie prawdziwa feeria kolorów, niesamowite chmury.

Ciao cara Malgorzata,
perhaps too saturated, but surely a photo of great and pleasant effect. Very interesting the graphics of this garden, whose perspective conducts the eye up to the monument.
An excellent prelude to the blue hour! Brava!
Ciao, have a nice night!
