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.

beautiful narrow street in Viana do Castelo. How great that it is for pedestrians only and there are no cars. How wise to build so narrow streets, with shadow in a hot day. Fantastic perspective, nice colors and sharpness.
have a great Sunday

Very well chosen POV and as a result good depth of field achieved in this picture. I like the angle you took this photo at and the way the street leads an eye. Very nicely saturated colors and properly given sharpness.
Enjoyable work, thanks for sharing

A nice street with fine buildings and interesting details. The sharpness is impressive and you have exposed this very well in spite of the strong contrasts.

This must have been taken early in the morning when people are just starting to wake up. Nice capture of this narrow street and the architectures. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

I like very much this inviting composition that brings us instantly into the picturesque alley and offers us a vivid feeling of actually being there, ready to walk down. The perspectives have a strong visual impact, the sides of the alley are full of details, which are strikingly dense and clear. You balanced light and shadow very effectively, the graphism of your depiction is delightful, you used the sky in a very attractive way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

ChrisJ (111504) 2014-07-21 1:47
Perfect sharpness here with good fg shadow detail and excellent use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point with the 2 sides nicely commencing in both bottom corners. Good colour and saturation. Tfs!

nice peaceful street here. I like the perspective and old architecture. Nice town. Good shot and presentation here.
Have a nice evening.
Royaldevon (37519) 2014-07-22 2:55
It is so relaxing to see pedestrianized areas where it is perfectly safe to wander and gaze without fear of the traffic! You have taken a good angle so that the lead finishes a strong vanishing point. As always, good colours and sharp details.

Hola dear Angel
What a delightful alleyway, so historic, characteristic and enchanting. The sharpness is really impressive, from foreground to background. The colours superbly regulated and you handled the light so cleverly.
