This is a small place to dock boats in the City of Caminha. This spot is located at Rio Coura, a small river that passes Caminha and that leads into Rio Minho in the back of the Image. Rio Minho is also the natural boarder to Spain (to Galicia more exactly). Caminha on the portuguese side and Camposancos on the spanish side are only divided by Rio Minho. From here Spain is just behind the Bridge, connected by an hourly Ferry ride (just not when i was there :-) ).

Tough balancing act on this one, the horizon is slightly tilted...however, if you were to correct that, the dock platform would become too uneven!? A problem experienced by all I'm sure, but you've done well to find good middle ground. I like your note, knowing that Spain is within eyesight adds a little extra appeal and makes my eye search further in the distance. A strong lead in perspective, very nice use of the dock, taking the viewer into and around the bend. Smart composition from relatively minimal subject material. Thanks for providing the view along the river. Have a pleasant weekend.
All the best,

una foto nella quale la composizione appare eccellente per l'evidenza data a questo lungo pontile che costeggia la riva.
Molto belli anche i colori oltre che il soggetti.
Eccellente anche la luminosità e molto buona anche la nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

A wonderfully framed photo with the boardwalk as a strong line to lead one in the composition. Interesting note also. The slighly tilted horizon and boardwalk makes one quite dizzy here, but then I think that walking on that thing must be dizzing anyway.
have a great weekend

I like very much how natural the colors look. The in which the broadwalk takes the eyes into the bridge and the hills on the other side of the Minho.
The reflections on the left side look very good, too.
