So many people seem to have visited Portofino lately. A part of Europe that I've missed up to now :(
There also seem to be so many fantastic viewpoints. I guess I could wander around there for days. Although Portofino still seems rather small (on the pictures anyway).
This picture shows the kind of place I really like: very picturesque, typical architecture, colourful houses, mountains near the sea and I guess an excellent cuisine ... can't see that last topic on the pic :)
The composition of this photo is excellent. You've chosen an ideal POV. Also the brightness and the sharpness are perfect.
Best regards, Paul

The hills are framing well the village. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats and of the buildings. The late morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

The wonderful town of Portofino known of the many romantic songs of Italy. A true paradise. I was there by bike twice, once in the evening and once on a hot day, and every time I was delighted. Wonderful colors and perfect picture quality.
צהריים טובים. העיר הנפלאה של פורטופינו ידועה של שירים רומנטיים רבים של איטליה. גן עדן אמיתי. אני הייתי שם על אופניים פעמיים, פעם אחת בערב ופעם ביום חם, ובכל פעם שמחתי. צבעים נפלאים, איכות תמונה מושלמת. שלך.

Good Morning Ike,
A glorious, expansive view of this most attractive, harbourside town.
The details of the boats and the colourful buildings present a sense of fun. The surrounding trees wrap the town in a wonderful, contrasting blanket of greenery.
A most attractive place, sharply displayed.
Have a lovely Sunday,

A splendid downwards point of view on this charming seaside town with its expensive moorings. The pastel colours of the buildings are beautifully captured and make a pleasant contrast with the surrounding greener. Excellent clarity.

a splendid view of this very beautiful place. Your excellent point of view captures very well its character, colours and atmosphere, it looks irresistibly inviting. There's great depth and perspective and stunning clarity so that we may wonder along, into and over the view and delight in the elegant details we discover all over. I love the sweet and vibrant light as well as the wonderful colours. Congratulations and thank you! I like your workshop pictures too, especially the view of the piazza.
All the best, have a lovely evening and week,

This marina looks really amazing with old and colorful architecture and lots of beautiful green hills around. Well seen and executed with good lights and natural tones. Many thanks for sharing.
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-07-29 9:12
There's a Portofino Resort in the Philippines, it's beautiful but not as beautiful as this one. I wouldn't mind living in one of those houses on the hill. Good dof with sharp details and good lighting. Well done, tfs.

Lovely pov on this town, perfectly balanced with all
these details, houses, yatchs and so beautiful light. Tfs.
mkamionka (39133) 2012-07-30 14:06
I think I have just seen a photo of the same town from SWEETFREEDOM today. Amazing location and you show it from a slightly different perspective. Beautiful townhouses and the yachts add some elegant aspect to the photo. I like also the green color of the water which is a different green that the vegetation though and contrasts with it.
Great work, TFS
adramad (47626) 2012-07-30 15:13
A masterful composition of this beautiful place, great view from a high point that gives us a good reference of where the population spreads and its beautiful coastline.
It is certainly a charming, elegant and photogenic with many possibilities.
Magnificent color and brightness. Well done.

Good shot of this famous place! The pov and the colours are very good! I specially like the colour of the water:)!

this sight from a high POV is really magnificent, and offers us the beauty of this small village, its traditional architecture, the green landscape that surrounds it, and the elegant yachts anchored in its marina.
The light and the colors are at a high quality level.
A great work.

jcpix (13930) 2012-08-18 13:53
One of my favorite spots, and you've done a wonderful job with the composition. I like that you've chosen a more expansive view of the harbor area than what's generally seen. Although the exposure may be a bit bright, it's a great shot!
Kielia (24077) 2012-08-19 7:25
a very fascinating scenery that is very well captured.
The photos in WS are also very interesting and giving the viewer an excellent idea of this fantastic place. The composition is really very successful; my compliments!
ChrisJ (116674) 2015-04-25 4:02
Looks like Portofino is the place to go when in Genova. Amazing repetition of the white boats with a good exposure on the highlights and excellent density levels. The curving esplanade provides deep lead in lines and leads the eye right around the bay. I like the colourful facades of the buildings along the waterfront. Tfs.
