From my room more one sunset.
I put in workshop another photo of the same local but in sunrise.
Tangier is a Moroccan port city located near the Straight of Gibraltar. It was originally an ancient Phoenician trading post, and later became a Carthaginian and then a Roman settlement. After five centuries of Roman rule, it was captured successively by the Vandals, Byzantines, and Arabs.
At the cross-roads of Europe and Africa, of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, Tangier opens the door onto Morocco. There is still an air of mystery about the city, going back to the time when Tangier was an international zone.
Since Tingis was founded in the IVth century BC, Carthaginians, Romans, Phoenicians, Vandals, Arabs, Spaniards, Portuguese and the English have jealously fought for the right to control it. No African city is closer to Europe, no other Orient is more dearly loved by European or American artists - painters, musicians or authors.
Delacroix, Saint-Sains, Matisse, Van Dongen, Tenesse Williams, Jean Genet, Joseph Kessel, William Burroughs and Paul Bowles, to name but a few, have all lived in Tangier.
I hope you like it.

Hi Aires, what a fantastic sunset!
the light and the reflection in the swimming pool and on the sea are wonderful!
great contrast and focus and a perfect POV to have a long view!
ktanska (24318) 2006-03-29 7:30
I see Tangier has received a few wonderful sunsets lately. The clouds accompanied with city lights look quite psychedelic. I also like reflection from the pool.

P.s. About the workshop - I prefer this original, after-sunset version :))
barrufeto_77 (28876) 2006-03-29 7:38
Both pictures are great. Maybe this is more spectacular althought. In any case, you were lucky to enjoy views like this.

Tue (26976) 2006-03-29 14:46
Great view over the bay with a fantastic sunset. I love the colours as well as the dark clouds in the sky. The lights of the city on the other side look also very nicely. Well captured!
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-03-29 16:11
sem duvida que em Africa não é dificil encontrar pores do sol incriveis, mas este é sem duvida muito bonito, assim como a sua composição.
Parabens pela foto.
ahmetgedikli (25448) 2006-03-29 16:47

alekpet (4663) 2006-03-30 2:28
This Paolo type photo is truely fantastic.
The clouds are amasing, they look so close and so fast moving.
The city lights at the back add to the atmosphere.

Hi Aires, A perfect timing for this picture at the blue hour. A well composed picture with nice PoV and excellent contrast and beautiful color combination. The view dramatic cloud made this picture attractive. The warm colors in the middle well highlighted this cold color based image. Well done.
MvS (4163) 2006-03-30 16:05
Nice place - the sky is superb. Fantastic colours.
Galmeida (12559) 2006-03-31 5:14
Antes de mais quero-lhe agradecer a referencia do meu nome na sua pagina de apresentação e introdução no TE. Muito grato por esse facto meu amigo. Durante anos e anos dediquei o meu trabalho no seu tipo de actividade como Director de Departamento em Informatico em grandes formas Portuguesas, e por isso também viajem bastante especialmente a Alemanha.
Está excelente esta captura após o por de sol em Tanger. Por estes lados aterrei 4 vezes. Conheço por 3 vezes Agadir no Sul de Marrocos, que gosto muito. Bom enquadramento, luz, cores e "Sharp". Bom trabalho e bonito momento. Parabéns e um abraço amigo,

pablominto (53744) 2006-04-02 1:27
Another interesting night time photograph, where you master lighting conditions very well!
Fine lines in this well balanced composition, plesasant colours where the dominating black and blue work well together...
rabdelnoor (3421) 2006-04-02 10:55
Very impressive night shot, especially due this fantastic sky. Nice colors and superb light.
rosaline (0) 2006-04-02 13:29
A fantastic shot here. The contrast is spectacular and the lights are well caught in the scene. The exposure is good and the sky is amazing. I've never seen one like it. Good work.
coco (30439) 2006-04-02 15:14
Really impressive view.
Only the lights over a few palms dislikes to me. But the rest of the photo is great: that sky, that light and that colours.
Thanks for share.
elmec (12210) 2006-04-02 17:09
I like the magic sky! The black clouds are unbelieveable!
Great light and frame!

Hello Aires, another beautiful sunset. I like a lot the reflection on the water. The cloudes creates marvelous shapes and luminance. Very good DOF. Thanks for sharing, Gabriel
MiriamVolpiceli (362) 2006-04-03 1:34
A pretty nightfall. Beautiful shot, with colors, definition and perfect light... the heaven this pretty.
Rossignol (2289) 2006-04-03 17:39
Excellent shot, Aires. That sky is absolutely incredible and the timing and exposure in the blue hour are perfect. Nice composition with good foreground interest in the nice shaped pool, good view of the lights on the headland and that sky, which steals the show completely. Very much a decisive moment.
banyanman (7789) 2006-04-04 9:48
An amazing sky, Aires. Did you consider cropping off the top one third of this (just below the distant shoreline) and presenting this as a panoramic shot? I think that would have made a stunning photograph. Cheers . . . David
Marlis (2298) 2006-04-04 16:23
I love this late evening shot. The light of the distant city look lovely under the very interesting sky. Beautiful cloudpattern.
The pool in the foreground and the lit palmtrees give a romantic feeling.
Well seen, well captured.
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2006-04-06 5:42
Wow, amazing picture. The clouds on the colourful sky are excellent. Also beautiful whole image with the light good illuminating the pool, and the coast in the background.
HOBO (5276) 2006-04-13 2:29
what an atmosphere, amazing sky pattern and colors. Great view on the town. Reminds me on my once and only trip to Morocco in 1967...
Thanks for recalling memories...
josepmarin (57593) 2006-04-23 7:31
Un anochecer impresionante. Precioso juego de luces, en esta espléndida vista desde la habitación. El cielo es maravillosos, con tantos colores y las pinceladas de nubes, parece una pintura. La foto tiene gran profundidad, y se pueden ver claramente las luces de la ciudad al otro lado de la bahía.
Muy bien gestionada la exposición y los ajustes.
Una foto excelente y muy bella.
langaloo (489) 2006-04-28 6:12
Impresinante foto! Like pau says.
Tangiers is magical. Your picture is like a Delacroix painting, dramatic, full of details, movements, darks and lights.
What you say about Tangiers is strong. I was there many times, in the 70's and 80's, and the first evenings, I could not believe the parfum of Exotism there, with yet, a very european feeling with the cafes, the busy mediteranean streets, the painted signs on the walls, in spanish, french, and suddenly a man walking by with a long "dress" (djelabah), or a woman with her sinister grey outfit and a white hankershief covering her mouth... Oh, yes, I am at the northen Gates of Africa, going all the way down south to Cape Town.
starbug (6924) 2006-05-20 7:26
Idon't think i've ever seen a sky like that, a magical and beautiful view, especially over a fascinating town like Tangier, i spent there only a day but i wish i had spent more, thank you for reminding it and presenting with such a fascinating sunset.
have a nice weekend:-)
light (865) 2006-06-08 7:24
Incredible SKY. What a sunset, and what a perspective. Beautiful play with the light, very good definition, and excelent composition.
abulafia (4900) 2006-06-09 5:50

Desta vez foi um comentário do Tolga que me fez procurar esta foto na Wikipédia.
Está realmente uma bela imagem, com um grande efeito dramático dado pelas nuvens.
Gurtay (66) 2010-09-28 23:34
Magical impression ! Have you applied HDR ? A very successful light-color composition. Congratulations.
