Portugal-dos-Pequenitos in Coimbra is an amusement park dedicated to show the past of Portugal and it's Colonies.
The place divided in pavilions for each subject and time in history.
Here is a plaza just right after the main entrance, and I found the background of tall palm-trees with the town houses and those figures, was just interesting POV,
however, it was a bit windy – so the trees are not clear on image.

Very unusual human statues all appearing the same and resolute. Perhaps a tribute to Africa's people?
Thanks for sharing,

Very good composition with these original sculptures on Africa, good POV with that beautiful backdrop of palm trees we offer.
Good sharpness with good management of light and a beautiful natural color.
Have a nice evening. Best regards.

You have captured an interesting and unusual set of statues here. I like the slightly oblique point of view and the background mix of trees and architecture. It would be interesting to know what the significance is, maybe something to do with Portugal's colonial past.

nice the black statues in this park, as remind to the visitors as the natives too, the glory of the past, of the Portuguese nation .I like the perspective as the light and colour management with the statues to create a good welcome entrance of the park.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

The trees are framing well the statues. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the statue. The early afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Zanimljive statue koje podsecaju na proslost ...
Lepo mesto sa palmama, dobar ugao snimka i prikaz, lepim bojama i fotografijom.
Dobar rad i kompozicija.
Prijatno vece sa lepim vremenom, kod nas je i dalje mnogo hladno, -10 C stepeni.
Interesting statues reminiscent of the past ...

Good work and composition.
Pleasant evening with nice weather, here is still very cold, -10 degrees C.
All the best.

a beautiful picture of wonderful three sculptures against attractive palm trees and houses beyond them,
African power and silent insistence are felt on the attractive figures,
colors and composition are nice to express the ambience there,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Nice photo of three busts of the Negro into the beautiful palm trees. Very good idea and great execution.
בוקר טוב. מגניב הגישה שלושה פסלי הכושי לתוך עצי דקל יפים. רעיון טוב מאוד וביצוע נהדר. דרישת שלום.

I see that you work with F/4 and a very good result.
Sharpness and claerity be superb.
Very well found these three black people (statues) between the green environment.
Colors and presentation are pleasant for look at.

Many thanks, dear Ike.
Composition-wise, the number three is fully satisfying to photographic minds and so did you juxtapose those 3 historic ancestors beautifully within the frame.
Stunning density, compraed to white backdrop.

I remember this park when I visited it first time when I was 6 years old.my brother visited it when he was a child too. it is ever a fabulous event for a child. like an adult the vision is different and we can see how the park was build during the colonial times, showing the portuguese colonies and the main monuments of portugal in small size. it is ever a nice place to visit, nice image showing this interesting area of the park

I cannot tell whether the statues are identical or not. I like their poses, as though the figures are saying, "No, I'm not going to do it, no dice!" Well seen and presented.
