Hello friends and colleagues , this photo today I invite you to stroll through a beautiful ancient city in northern Portugal , I hope you like it , then a few letters of the city.
About 50 kilometers from the Spanish border in northern Portugal, Viana do Castelo is , beautiful village located between the mouth of the Minho and Porto.
Viana do Castelo is located on the estuary of Limia , a river which rises in Galicia and the Atlantic will die . So when the traveler overlooking the sea has the feeling of being at a river, but when you see the big boats docked there they know that since cod fishermen .
There is a hospital ship , the Eanes , which commemorates the tempests of the Grand Banks , and full historic crests reminiscent of better times , when money came to Portugal from the colonies. Great houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Best of Viana do Castelo is the Antigo Area , with cobbled streets leading from place to place and from street to street , approaching palaces and churches. With sun always travels better , but there cityscapes seem to ask a little rain to highlight the reflections of the stone.
The Republic Square is the heart of the historic center , where are the Town Hall , Mercy Hospital and a source of 1553. There are also in place with Romanesque collegiate and several baroque churches. Should see also neo-Byzantine basilica of Santa Luzia and the Municipal Museum.

C'est bien vu, une très belle perspective sur cet ensemble de façades.

A fine perspective along this attractive façade. I like the animated atmosphere and the repeating motifs offered by the windows. The image is nicely exposed and has good colours and sharpness. Merci pour le partage et bon weekend.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition à cause surtout de la ligne de fuite offerte grâce au choix du point de vue sur cette rangée de maisons blanches sous une lumière parfaite qui vient en contraste avec ce ciel bleu parfait.

The photo shows nicely diagonal composition in long perspective. The white color of the building well cooperate with the blue sky. Good quality shot with fantastic colors, light and sharpness.
Have a nice weekend,

I had a good time in this charming city. Your record is informative and the photo is well worth this magnificent building.
Good weeek-end of France.

What a beautiful wide open street, and so bright and calm too. It is so nice to see that a street like this has not been overtaken by parked cars, which take so much away from a scene. Classically beautiful and quaint, I imagine this is how this would have looked 200 years ago! A photo that has travelled through time.
All the best

This is indeed a very beautiful and impressive building, loking very well maintained or maybe carefully restored. The composition is nicely balanced from the inclusion of the plants and trees across the street. The people seen in the street add a lot of life, which I always enjoy to see in a view like this. The colours are very good and beautifully saturated.

bella prospettiva su questa bella ed elegante facciata, il bianco contrasta perfettamente con il cielo e le persone che passeggiano, animano piacevolmente la scena.

Hello Angel - I love this bright white facade which runs along the diagonal of your frame. The building is so attractive and by the looks of it very well maintained. An image that invites one to stroll down the street and enjoy both the sunshine and the peacefulness.
Have a good weekend

Fascinante composicion, de esta ciudad tan interesante, fantastica esta gran fachada con el caracteristico estilo portugues, combinando la piedra en puertas y ventanas y el blanco de la fachada, me gusta la composicion en diagonal, los arboles y las flores dan un toque sensacional.
Ideales estos encantadores colores, en una imagen perfecta de luz, y con una optima nitidez.
Muy buen trabajo. Me encanta.
Disfruta del fin de semana.
Un abrazo y que disfrutes en este fin de semana, por la sierra sevillana, un rincon que no conozco, asi que espero a ver tus imagenes, para hacerme una idea.

A brilliant shot in all its glory, dynamically angled and processed with loads of detail giving a lovely clean and crisp finish to this nice houses architecture. The light and house colours absolutely sing out and strikingly stand out from blue sky. This shot is without doubt amazing justifies the adjectives.

krzychu30 (15512) 2014-03-17 1:50
the beauty of the architecture is obvious here and we can admire it in a best quality.But what I like here even more is the way you composed and framed the scene.Your POV and angle creating so good diagonal line across the scene and making the view so deep is just great.
Well done my friend!
Have a nice day

Enjoy your WE.
ourania (51103) 2014-03-23 3:00
I like very much how you composed and framed this picture, presenting an interesting and attractive aspect of the old city. I like how you balanced the strong perspective of the building with the tree and the vivid colours of the flowers and the sky. The light and the colours are very beautiful, the atmosphere calm and delightful. The human presence favours your composition, details are excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
