A young couple walk along the coastal path eastward from the little village of Burgau towards Praia da Luz in western Algarve.
Just above the young man's head you can see the tower of the Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Luz and in the distance to the right the lovely beach at Praia da Luz. This was a very pleasant walk which we did several times during our holiday in this delightful area.

Hello John ,
From Praia da Luz towards the west , the algarvian coast is , may be , a little less beautiful than the eastern part . But , on the other side , the landscape is more wild and preserved , with some little fisher men villages became touristic resorts .
What an excellent picture to present us this region . The composition is really excellent . The large versio on Beta Te is especially interesting to look at .

your classical composition with the young couple strolling into the scene works ever so well,you even managed to capture a touch of red in just the right place!
It`s a lovely holiday photograph with lots and lots of charm from an attractive location.
I do enjoy the understated colours.
Kind regards Les.

A very pleasant view! The two couples here are far away from each other and that provides a very good depth in the picture. It seems to be a very pleasant place for walking here, far enough from the modern cityscape in the background. The yellow man has been here too, he helped me look around here. This seems indeed to be a very attractive holiday resort.

a shot that makes me envious as I have not had a holiday abroad for nearly 18 months now and really miss views like this. Something about this shot that just smacks of romance and lazy days, soaking up sun and enjoying good food and wine. A warmth and light that captivates and makes the whole ambience idyllic. First Class imagery.
Have a great weekend - Brian.

"We are made for each other, samjhe", this is the feeling I get when I watch the couple walking with hand in hand.
whether they are walking to Luz or Africa, matters not. What matters most is the company of good friends, who can walk with in good as well bad times.
RoooomAnce is in the air....... John,

Nice framing and colors
I like the composition too

A nice view made even nicer by including the young couple walking hand in hand towards the beach. It's a well handled composition with good balance between the green and brown areas, the hillside, the white village and the sea.The light is wonderful and the colours pleasantly mild.

This is a picture with a nice composition.
Great light, good sharpness and distribution of the elements.

una foto molto bella, ha un senso tridimensionale molto accentuato, hai fatto un'eccellente lavoro.
Panoramica ineccepibile, la coppia è perfettamente posizionata e il movemento da un bel senso di dinamicità.

It seems to be a very beautiful and pleasant place!
This picture is also very attractive! It's lovely as well and it's got a certain romantic mood because of the presence of that couple!
TFS - congrats,

Ce jeune couple d'amoureux nous fait bien rentrer dans l'image qui donne envie de se promener le long de ce beau rivage.

gotta love that Map view John! works really well. thanks again for giving me the low down on it.
When I look at the Map View I can almost see this couple hand in hand! haha
wonderful view you have here, the light, the colors, the town in the bg standing out in white, and just a touch of ocean to the right.
The only thing I'd change is what the guy is wearing, I'm not a sandles guy! too uncomfortable :)
see you around

Very classic shot, you should send it to First Choice or Thomas Cook!! Nice and sharp with great composition.
annjackman (15481) 2013-09-16 8:08
The couple walking into the picture are very well echoed by the couple walking towards them. One of them is also kindly wearing a pair of red shorts. Superb quality with the typical colours of the region beautifully presented.
Best wishes, Ann

I just regret that I was not interested in photography when we visited this lovely part of Portugal!
You have composed this really well, the couple (irresistibly romantic) very well placed in the frame and with good lead lines into the distance.
The fact that the f/g is so rich in colour, gives an added sense of depth, as we move to the more muted colours of the distant slopes.
My warm regards,

This is real a wonderful picture with this young couple in foreground, lovely hand in hand and enjoy of the nature.
Your panoramic picture is very high quality and nice sharp.
Lovely vacation place and almost always high temperature.
Excellent composition, nice captured, perfect perspective and depth photograph
Very well done, TFS.

Hello John - It was only on opening this up that the name caught my eye and my thoughts immediately turned to little Madelaine McCann. Silly really but there you go! This is a finely constructed shot, the young couple lead us into the frame and we automatically begin to seek out the route they will take to the village in the distance, a wonderful device to encourage a deeper look at the shot. As always finely managed light and detail.
Warm regards Rosemary

I like very much this picture, the way it is natural and candid and at the same time looks so well organized and balanced. All the elements, colours and perspectives come together in a very fine and delightful way. Depth and clarity are amazing. From the dry grass in the foreground to the distant hills, details and textures are rendered in a thorough and ttractive way. You've even had the lack and consideration (probably both:) to have interest and movement in the middle ground too. The loving couple contribute to the sense of harmony and relaxation, their coordinated movement is captivating. The warm colours prevail in a very pleasing way. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
