I can not resist to post one more photo of Obidos. This time a vieuw of the beautiful roofs creating a intersting pattern.
All of Obidos has been declared a national monument.
It is known as the "Wedding Present Town" because it was a gift King Dinis gave to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282, but that alone is not what makes it such an extraordinarily romantic place what make it one of Europe's most romantic medieval villages are its incredibly picturesque cobblestone streets lined with colorful houses filled with geraniums and bougainvillea, Gothic doorways and windows, whitewashed churches, flowerpots and dazzling tiles all encircled by the walls of a 12th century castle. Scaling its 13m (45ft)-high medieval walls is the best way to admire this picture postcard-perfect place.

This marvellous village has caused you muched inspiration and I cannot blame you for that. This village is one of the most beautiful of the world and your job there is at least impressive.
Good sharpness & colour, with excellent repetition of the red rooftops.

Hello Kik Ko,
a very lovely colourful place well framed with parallel diagonals that show the nice patterns of the roofs in line and the simple beauty of the architecture. I like very much the light management, the light reflected on the walls making these streets alive is like being generated from beneath. A very pleasing sight!
All the best,

Un très bon point de vue et une bonne lumière nous font admirer les textures de tuiles de ces toits.Bel accord de couleurs avec le bleu.

Very nice slice ...
As there is a narrow, people live in the dialog window.
Amazing crowd. Have put it nicely.
Particularly appealed to me coincided with the light and its distribution in the various plans in the picture.

la definizione e i colori incidono molto sull'ottima riuscita della foto.
Mi piace molto il taglio e la buona resa dell'insieme,

Wat heerlijk deze Portugese daken! Door de hoek en de crop heb je de complexiteit van al die verschillende hoogten en dimensies mooi grafisch onder controle gebracht. Fijn werk.
En wat leuk dat je nog (of is het weer) actief op TE bent.

a very effective composition to graphical level, because of the magnificent visual effect of the red roofs of this fantastic white architecture in Óbidos.
The blue paintings on the houses add an interesting chromatic contrast.
Excellent work with the light and with the colour quality, in an image caught by means of a good framing.

Hello Kik ,
Like a lot this kind of til roofs . These ones are splendid , and the view is superb , with the diagonal of the street , and the beautiful light .
mkamionka (39533) 2012-01-27 1:34
very well spotted view. I like the alignment of the roofs. They are all similar in style and color yet they create an interesting labyrinth. The frame is nicely cut with a pleasant diagonal road in the centre.
Very well done,

una ripresa veramente particolare.
Il contrasto tra i muri ed i tetti è molto bello e le righe colorate danno un tocco in più
lucasgalodoido (23649) 2012-02-06 17:47
muito interessante mesmo a vista desses telhados portugueses, uma vista muito comun nas cidades históricas brasileiras também. Gostei das cores.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Ze zijn zeer aantrekkelijk het grootste deel van de bevolking van Portugal met zijn rode daken en witte muren. Een uniek perspectief met prachtig licht en kleuren.
Met vriendelijke groet,

macjake (71059) 2012-02-12 16:32
I don't blame you at ALL for uploading another photo such as this.
its the type of shot that captures viewers attention immediately.
the vertical blue stipes give a splash of contrast color and work as focal points too.
love the repetitive patterns.
Angshu (56760) 2012-02-15 8:22
The red tiled roofs in a neat diagonal makes good viewing & also nice contrast with the whitewashed walls. The close crop works well removing any extraneous elements. The blue vertical lines at the corners of the houses also add to the picture. I like this!
