Wineries are stretched along the Cais-de-Ghaia and Av. Ramos Phinto, the known promenade on the Douro river-bank .
Taken during a boat cruise, seeing brand name's wineries on every other corner.

The point of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The subject is well framed. There is a good contrast between the colors of the walls and the colors of the roofs. Have a nice day.

I like very much this puzzle composition, where colours are really good and where we could see this fantastic side of Douro, the house´s gradation and lacement deserves a very effective composition...Well seen and done!!
Have a nice day...

Good view to this hill along the Douro river, the famous wienreies of Porto! Good balalnce in the composition with the boat well off-centred on the left. The colors of the buildings, of the roofs, of the vegetation arise very well under this beautiful blue sky.

thank you for your excellent shot,

A well framed composition with the boat nicely placed in the frame. I like the mix of architectural styles and the way the buildings rise up the hillside culminating with the trees. The image has good colours and sharpness.

Great and extensive wine cellar is built on the riverbank. I wonder if the wine here is good ?. A wonderful composition with excellent quality.
בוקר טוב. הגדול מרתף יין ענפה בנויה על גדת הנהר. אני תוהה אם היין כאן טוב. הרכב נפלא עם איכות מעולה. דרישת שלום.

Magnified image with this hill, where you will find these great buildings of the warehouses. An ancient architecture that overlooks the blue waters of the river, the boat will add a nice touch to the picture.
A very nice bright day, it gives you a beautiful color.
Have a nice evening. Best regards.

Famous wineries lining up along the riverside!
A pleasant capture that is characterized by fine light, great colours and good details...
The different layers in the composition is well balanced and pleasing to my eyes...!

You have depicted the picturesque hillside in a fine way. The wineries surely makes an attractive focal point. The colours are well saturated and well managed. Very nice work! TFS. Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Erling

Good pov on this hill and this wineries district, well the presence of this boat and so nice blue water.
clic (16074) 2011-02-17 12:27
Sorry for my delay, dear Ike.
I catch you for the second time hanging around vineries!.....It's OK though if you do it for photographic purposes, as in this lovely seven-stories cityscape laying on hill side; rich dwellings on top while commercial hangars keeping near merchandise ships.
Kielia (24073) 2011-02-19 9:53
you really had a difficult task when you captured this famous quarter! But the result is nevertheless very pleasant. The light is really bright but you managed it well. My compliments!

I see an advertise of the stones Fonseca on one of the fronts.
Nice panoramic image with the city between the blue water in foreground and blue sky above the city.
This again a very good picture, excellent captured and composed.
Sharpness and clarity are of high quality.
You create nice depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Belle vue depuis le bateau, un style d'architecture intéressante, bon complément avec le bateau en contraste avec le canoë en WS, deux belles présentations
ourania (36428) 2014-08-15 9:00
the view you are presenting is very interesting, this must be one of the most fascinating parts of the city. I like very much the way you framed the cityscape with the intense blue tones, the proportions you chose are very effective. We can observe a lot of interesting details and enjoy the atmosphere in the strong sunshine. The boat is a lovely addition that enriches the simple and elegant composition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

The layered red roofs descending the steep hillside contrast well against the blue sea and sky to give a wonderful warm cold colour contrast. Excellent sharpness and the boat at far left makes a good focal point. The double layers of text add interest: ?onseca foxseca. I like the curved top of the hill. Tfs.
