And here's my first shot of the umbrellas of this year.
Once again the little town of Águeda was decorated with colourful umbrellas. Many hundreds of them have been hung with wires, bringing so much colour and also visitors to the city. The ground gets some really nice shadows, too. But his year the urban art has really invaded the city - wall paintings and colourful benches are just exemples of what we can find there.
They will be there till September.

Excellente photo de cet alignement d'ombrelles colorées. Il semble que l'idée de la municipalité d'Águeda ait été reprise dans d'autres villes du monde.

The famous umbrellas really are an attractive photographic subject. The vivid colours really stand out from the BG and the diagonal composition helps give the strong visual impact.
Kind Regards, Ann

I'm very glad the umbrellas have been installed this year again, the colours look different, deeper but maybe it's the lighting conditions that give me this impression. I like very much this first picture, a delightful, creative approach to the extraordinary urban scenery. The graphism is very attractive. The umbrellas look like flying, the filtred light creates lovely plays of colours and the shadows enrich the atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This is a fine and extremely eye-catching composition. I like the diagonals you created and how the view is divided into three sections. It's very well done, especially the colours and the light are superbly handled.

The clever use of umbrellas as shades for the sun is attractive as always. You framed this in an intriguing angle that gives it a good dynamism.
have a great day

Hello Ana - The umbrellas make such a splendid subject especially when you have light like this. The brilliant contrasting colours are shown at their most vivid and make a real statement against the more conservative looking building. I like the diagonal composition very much.

My compliments! Very nice picturesque photo! I like these acid colors, impressive contrast with the sky and the grey building. Excellent diagonal composition, well done!

This event is always a surprise to see! Polarizer gave nice contrast and colour tone!

Feels like a daydream! What a shot, great that you took a second look at these and saw the potential. I love the view point and is worth a closer look as it focus you more on the shapes and the light coming through the umbrellas is simply delightful. Wonderful colour medley makes this an eye-catching shot indeed. A different but brill capture, Congrats & TFS.
