Guess it's time to post a few photos of Portugal. I'm going to start with this detail of an old door I found in Alcaraviça, a little village near Borba, in the Alentejo. The door is in ruins, as well as the house, but it still keeps some colour and details. The forged iron caught my eye at once.

Bonsoir, chère Ana,
J'aime ce genre de composition. Cette porte vénérable et ancienne exprime le temps qui passe. Elle semble avoir connu des moments meilleurs.
Il y a une certaine beauté dans tout cela.
J'apprécie comme il se doit.

Bonsoir Ana ~
this is gorgeous!! the colors, the peelings, the layers, the hearts in the wrought iron grills, and even the interesting little detail of having one heart that is broken :(
all the weathering and shades of such wonderful greens, i absolutely love this!

Cette photo mérite bien son titre. Ces portes sont vieilles et la peinture part en écailles, mais elles ont beaucoup de caractère. Le fer forgé est d'une belle délicatesse et adoucit la rudesse du vieux bois. Belle couleur vert.

What a lovely old door ! Great effect given by the peeling green paint and the forged iron !
Judging from the closed inside shutters, it is now uninhabited ! Sad but picturesque !
Thanks for sharing.

Une vieille porte abandonnée qui n'attendait que d'être photographiée. Jolis motifs en fer forgé. Bon cadrage. Salutations.

The textures and colours of the peeling paint make this is a superb subject for a photogrpah. I like the close farming and the detail of the wrought iron. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Splendid old door! I love this kind of details, they are so rare in these days...

wonderful door and capture of it!
I bet this door could tell us many stories from its past.
Just love its textures and the way you were able to bring them out(really brilliant!)Also the color scheme of the scene is very attractive and works well together with the textures.
Evocative composition with strong graphics!
Have a nice day

J'aime beaucoup ces vieilles peintures écaillées,les textures ici sont parfaitement rendues et cette couleur verte qui a passé avec le temps est du plus bel effet.

Here you have captured some fantastic colours and texture of the wood. I like the decorative iron too, but I am more fascinated by the colours.

This door looks to be an entrance to a place filled with history and the textures upon it look brilliant. You captured wonderful detail in the peeling paintwork and the chipped wood. The red tones of the rust add a fine color contrast to the green of the fading paintwork.
Thanks as always

What a subject! Texture of the old door and design of the grill - brilliantly framed with wonderful clarity and colors. History, Economics and Art... you have embedded all three in this small space. It really tells thousand words.

When I saw the thumbnail, I assumed I was looking at a photograph by Mesut Ilgim! But you have found an amazing distressed subject here. The flat lighting works well, though I would be interested to see it with raking side-light on it. Very well spotted and captured.
macjake (69859) 2014-01-15 13:43
I feel like grabbing some tools and peeling off all that paint, sand it down and give it a new shine :)
but then again it would lose so much of its old time charm.
lets keep it the way it is haha
and as you say, the iron is a nice touch too.

ottima composizione e ricchezza di dettagli in questa fotografia di un piacevole scorcio del sud del Portogallo.
Spolendidi i colori e dosato a meraviglia il contrasto.
Ciao e buona serata

Old and beautiful, at least in terms of photography graphism
Excellent light, colors and rendition of textures
A good shot
Best regards, have a nice night

Nicely cropped shot of this dilapidated doors that appears down the years. But that excels in my eyes with you having captured the vivid colours and textures so well in all parts. There is a certain charm to the whole image so beautifully bold indeed. Well done

Great framing on this old door with nice détails and splendid colors. Well done!
jcpix (13930) 2014-01-27 19:09
What can I say, this caught my eye as well...literally within a second or two from opening your gallery! :) I absolutely love these kinds of details and textures, and the shades of color are superb. There's just so much character behind these old, decaying subjects...be it walls, doors, windows, etc. This is a wonderful side by side close up of the rusted wrought iron design and surrounding wood "frame." There's even a bit of charm from this weathered material, it may have seen its better days, but it's still stood the test of time. Love it!
kwekwekan (1078) 2014-01-29 16:41
Lots of great elements to this picture: great symmetry, a nice close vantage point that focuses in on a small (and very interesting) section of the door, beautiful colour gradiants of green and grey, the time worn iron and fantastic texture of the peeling paint.

I love this composition. The green is so intense!
