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 in the street Calçada da Glória , at this moment the elevator starts to walk, he walks very slowly.

Elevador da Glória

Linking the Baixa Pombalina (Restauradores Square) to the unique Bairro Alto (the stop is right next to the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara, with a magnificent view over the city), in a journey of 265 meters, the Elevador da Glória was inaugurated in the 24th of October 1885.
Conceived by the Portuguese engineer Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, it started functioning with water deposits, afterwards it started working with steam and from 1914 on it finally started working by electric energy.
Two elevators carry out the journey, ascending and descending, transporting tourists and residents, being this the busiest elevator in Lisboa.

Hello Goncalo

A nice capture of this yellow tram. Love the sense of movement. The murals and the tree completes the scene in a nice way. Great work:) TFS. Have a nice day.

Best regards, Erling

Olá amigo Gonçalo,
fue fantástico como todos buscábamos una buena foto del Elevador da Glória, y eso que la luz ya no era la mejor.
Tú hiciste esta interesante toma con el elevador en movimiento, que da un gran dinamismo a la escena, trabajando muy bien con una exposición lenta para conseguir este bonito efecto.
El color amarillo del elevador y el grafitti de la pared al fondo, dan mucha potencia cromática y mucho grafismo a la foto.
Buen trabajo.
Um abraço,
Pili y Josep

hola gonçalo,

me gusta el dinamismo de esta image...con el mitico elevador do gloria en movimiento...que contrasta con las artes graficas en los muros...


namaste Goncalo,
another interesting composition from you. The motion of this elevator is captured nicely which made nice contrast with the part of town behind. Excellent light and depth. Superb clarity. A nice one indeed. Tfs.
Best wishes.

Hello Gonçalo,

The long exposure time makes the street elevator look like a Lamborghini..!
A picturesque street scene well captured, an artistic composition...
And finally the eyes end with the graffiti!

Pablo -

Ola Goncalo,
Lovely original capture of that symbol of Lisbon. Perfect dynamic catch, well seen.
Enjoy a beautiful day.

Good Morning Goncalo,

A fine diagonal composition which adds to the impact of the rapidly moving, downhill tram. Great efect from the sharpness of the b/g to the blurred movement of the yellow tram.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi Goncalo
imaginative composition this, love the sense of motion especially effective with the amazing detailing and colours that are around the tram car. Compelling work!

Have a great day - Brian.

Hi Goncalo,
a superb impression with attractive composition and details, the timing is excellent, great shot, Tfs! Have a nice evening! Kellemes estét kívánok!

Olá Gonçalo

Sua foto me lembrou uma brincadeira que fazíamos quando crianças. Mais ou menos assim: desenhava-se metade de um trem e quando o outro perguntava: cadê o trem?
- Passou.
Adorei a foto.

Ola dear Goncalo

Ehehehehe, excellent title Warp Drive, the cable car looks to be travelling very fast. Good control of the shutter speed to give us this great sense of movement. The grafitti in the background is alos a nice contrast and very attractive. Parabens!

Um abraco

Hi Goncalo,
Good dynamic effect with the blurred yellow color in the left side, good contrast with the colourful wall in the fg, good light management.

Bom este tiro de rua, com destaque para o mural/grafite de rua com o velho elevador a partir para mais uma viagem.
Gosto muito da calçada no primeiro plano.Enfim uma composição com muito grafismo. Parabéns.
