Hello friends,
Photo 11/4/2011 Lisbon meeting TE members present Josep Marín and his wife, Filipe Rocha-Sacavem, Ana Dores -adores, and me, photo on the Elevador da Bica.
I chose the version black and white because the sky was white because of the clouds, I cut the part of the sky.

The Bica Funicular (Portuguese: Elevador da Bica or Ascensor da Bica) is a funicular in Lisbon, Portugal, that forms the connection between the Calçada do Combro/Rua do Loreto and the Rua de S. Paulo. It is operated by Carris.
The Bica funicular was opened on 28 June, 1892. It climbs the Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo for 245 metres from the Rua S. Paulo. The lower station of this funicular railroad is almost hidden behind a facade on the Rua de S. Paulo with the inscription "Ascensor da Bica". It was constructed by Raoul Mesnier de Ponsard and opened to the public in 1892.In 2002 it was designated a National Monument.

Ola Goncalo,

Focussing on the graphic/geometrical aspect here, rather than on the typical Lisboa coleur locale, this is a refreshing take on a familiar scene. Logical choice to go for bl/w.

Benny

Hi Goncalo,
Great shot indeed... superb perspective....
well chosen B/W.... beautiful composition...
Excellent sharpness & good management of light....
good photography, Tfs!
Regards,
Madhumita.

Ciao Goncalo, fantastic perspective, wonderful B&W, splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Olá Gonçalo,
recuerdo este momento, cuando estabas buscando el encuadre perfecto para captar esta fantástica perspectiva de las vias del Elevador da Bica.
El blanco y negro da más contraste a esta escena, y fue una buena opción teniendo en cuenta el cielo gris de aquel día lluvioso.
La composición es limpia y directa, y dice muchas cosas con estos sencillos elementos.
Excelente trabajo, y un buen recuerdo de un encuentro muy agradable.
Um abraço,
Pili y Josep

Ciao Goncalo,
la versione in bianco nero è perfetta, con una gamma di grigi molto estesa indice di un tempo di esposizione perfetto.
Grande prospettiva e profondità, eccellente nitidezza.
Un saluto a te e agli amici presenti al meeting.
Buona serata
Mario

Ola Goncalo,
I remember very well this "Lisboa" dimension, the ascending feeling of the city, as if projected into the sky... the crop and the wide angle have accentuated this upward (or downward...) movement, the b/w makes the eye focus on the essential lines. a nice twist on a classic Lisbon shot.

Olá Gonçalo!
Parece que foste o primeiro mais uma vez:)!
Uma óptima composição e uma boa opção pelo b&w. Evitaste mostrar as obras do prédio da direita e o tempo bem cinzento. E o grafismo dos carris é excelente!

Hi Gonçalo,

a great B&W composition! The strong perspective effect is very appealing ehanced by the perfect light management.

Have a nice evening

Hi Goncalo,
it's unusual because street in Lisboa is without famous trams. Good perspective and contrast. Fine effect in B&W. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
Aleksander

Hi Goncalo,
Wonderful composition with the well known trails of Lisbon's tram. Good bw choice, well seen.

Olá Gonçalo,

Muito bem esta foto a preto e branco, impressionante a profundidade de campo obtida. Boa opção para eliminar aquele céu chuvoso e com luz forte de frente.
A composição está muito bem definida e quase vemos todas as camadas de cinzentos até ao preto.
Bom encontro este com o Josep e sua esposa.

Um abraço,
Filipe

Olá Gonçalo,
sensacional! A visão dos trilhos se perdendo no horizonte ficou ótimo... em preto e branco, melhor ainda.
Grande abraço.

I love the downward pov here. It seems to accentuate the diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point at the bottom. Good sharpness & tonal range with excellent graphism in this superb b&w image. Tfs!

Hi Gonçalo, I have seen many phptos of "Elevador da Bica", but this one is impressive with its graphical beauty. Those parallel lines take our eyes from Bairro Alto and leads to Rio Tejo. Best regards, Tolga

Dobro vece.
Vrlo interesantan i dobar tekst sa podacima o mestu ...
Dobar snimak i perspektiva, lepa fotografija.
Volim crno belu fotografiju, mnogo sam je radio.
Dobar tekst koji prati fotografiju sa podacima o upotrebljenoj tehnici i elementima za dobijeni snimak, vrlo poucno.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc sa lepim vremenom.
Sve najbolje.

Hi Goncalo,

Wonderful meeting in Lisboa, with Josep guest from Barcelona, Ana and Filipe, and what about Aires? He doesn't appear here and also do not mlike the meeting now. A pity. Elevador da Bica, I made many photos here also, with funny silver train. Good option of b&w, incredible depth and sharpness.

un noir et blanc qui par sa perspective bien saisie, donne de la profondeur et rend bien l'impression de descente. La prise de vue est d'une grande netteté et bien exposée.
Un cadrage parfait.

Des rencontres très sympathiques lors de ce meeting

Belle soirée

Hello Goncalo,
Wonderful B&W composition, excellent POV and DOF, very good graphic mood, lovely light and tones, great photo work!
Have a nice evening, Vasilis.

Hi Goncalo
this style of composition is always hard to perfect.
its also very personal and subjective in setting it up.
For example, I probably would have cut the length of the railway in the lower fg, but thats just a personal preference thing.
The key here is the long perspective and lines that draw us and attract us visually.
nice work and excellent subject/creativity
cheers
craig

Oi Gonçalo!
Linda foto!
Gostei em especial do pdv escolhido, da composição, do formato vertical, da exposição e do preto & branco!
Parabéns, abraço e até mais,
Neyvan

Ola dear Goncalo

Beautiful perspective here, the cobblestones provide a wonderful texture. Of course your trademark large foreground and excellent depth of field instantly tell me this is a Bluejeans photo :) Parabens!

Um abraco

Hi goncalo

But they are converging! So the title is absolutely wrong!
Good B&W perspective well enhanced by the use of the wide angle.
Greetings
CLODO

Ora che sono stato a Porto capisco la necessità di queste funicolari! che salite! E vedo che anche Lisbona necessita di questo mezzo di trasporto!
Molto bello l'effetto della prospettiva creato da questi binari e graziose anche le textures delle pietre di granito.
Il bianco e nero rinforza l'effetto grafico e dona una atmosfera interessante.

parabéns,
Donato

Your TE meeting there had great results, great pics :)
Excellent depth and i like it more in B&W
All the best

The perspective of the tram tracks work well, taking us deep into the picture into a fine vanishing perspective. Looks good in black & white

hello Goncalo
impressive depth and impressive perspective.The graphism is well enhanced by the B&W,and I like the little man at the end of the street making the sensation of depth still stronger.

Hello Goncalo,
This is a very graphic and pleasing image. I like the way that the eye is taken down the lines to the point in the distance. The light on the cobbled street is lovely and is excellent in b/w.
Imaginative composition.
Regards, Ann

Olá Gonçalo

Bela foto em P&B com as linhas férreas convergindo no final da imagem. super bonito o efeito.
Abraços

Hi Goncalo,

Simple but great art!!! Yes art, low POV, strait lines go down
plus b&W. This one could be in an album.

Have a nice evening

Bartek

namaste Goncalo,
a nice composition in vertical. Chosen B&W Format is superb. The lines added graphism here and the lights reflected on it is just great. A nice presentation. Tfs.
Best wishes.

Bom dia
Eléctrico de Lisboa é uma coisa maravilhosa quando você subir abruptamente para que depois as ruas estreitas do bairro de Alfama. Imagem muito boa da escola simplesmente um exemplo do uso da perspectiva.

Bom Dia Goncalo,
This represents and summarises the feeling of Lisboa in a creative way. The depth and composition and lines are excellent. I also love these dark B&W tones, they feel rich and focus the image well, ascentuating the lines and depth even more. I spent some time in Lisboa many years ago, and it was my favourite city I have ever visited in all my travels..
Cheers
Justin

Hi Goncalo,
Well seen the b&w vesion ideal for the subject and also the great depth with your choice for the frame, well made.

Olá Gonçalo,

What I like best is that I remember standing at the same spot three months ago on a most happy day. Beautiful photo and note, and in B&W there is a timeless quality.

Warmest regards,

Hola Goncalo,

esta es una excelente imagen, me gusta mucho esa perspectiva con un resultado visual magnifico, el blanco y negro es todo un acierto aqui, muy bien visto,

Un abrazo,

Hello Goncalo,

You've produced an almost hypnotic pattern based composition. The metallic reflections, the shiny cobblestones, the delicate criss crossing of textures are very well rendered. Congratulations.

Emmanuel

Hello Gonçalo,

Browsing through your picture I've noticed this one. What a great picture. Very nicely lit and well framed. Your choice of black and white was a great one.

Good job.
