Excellent picture with nice atmosphere. It translates us to the Middle Age!

Hi Filipe, Wonderful architecture & great depth, some brilliant texture captured in the stone, there is real quality in this photo, excellent light & well composed, kind regards Wilson.
ccameraguy (383) 2011-01-11 13:29
Amazing results from your composition. How many images did you use to combine to create this HDR effect for the cathedral?
The side lights and the hall vaulting add to your fine image
Ilducabianco (940) 2011-01-11 13:45
strong but successful PP.The row of arches in perspective gives a great depth to the scene.Good colours and details.The monument is one of the masterpieces of one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal.I always remember with "pleasure" the visit to the Capela dos Ossos.
krzychu30 (15510) 2011-01-11 14:22
wonderful picture.You were able to perfectly reflect the atmosphere of cold,stone interior of this
cathedral.Good framing and sharpness enable us to enjoy many details of this beautiful gothic temple.I like also the way you use the natural light here.

Absolutely breathtaking composition and location. Excellent HDR job. Superb colours. Highest quality overall.
Greetings from Dublin!
annjackman (20899) 2011-01-11 22:56
You have created a beautiful image. The detail on the stone is lovely and the graceful shapes are shown very well. The colours make the cloisters look very intersting. Excellent piece of work.
Nard (6972) 2011-01-12 1:09
Nice composition with a excellent management of light which gives to the composition a amazing atmosphere. Realy welle done.
mauro61 (52633) 2011-01-12 1:20
a parte la perfetta inquadratura mi piace il lavoro di PP in cui hai aumentato tinte e contrasti rendendo antica e particolare la foto,
dta (71391) 2011-01-12 1:38
Ola Filipe ,
I like the effect of the strong PP . Perspective and framing are perfect . A splendid gothic architecture .
sabermonajati (10403) 2011-01-12 3:45
excellent architecture and nice archways you captured.
delpeoples (55090) 2011-01-12 4:50
Wow! Is this HDR? If so, it is extremely subtle and well done. I love the sharpness and the light is magical. It reminds me a little of Clementi's work. Beautiful perspective of the church, what a work of art, congratulations and I wish you a beautiful day.
Bluejeans (64249) 2011-01-12 5:21
Oi amigo ,
Belo trabalho de photoshop , achei magnificas as texturas das paredes bem carregadas , muito interessante a tonalidade de azul no chão , boa profundidade de foto ,parabéns!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
abmdsudi (46848) 2011-01-12 6:16
This is incredible indoor architectural structure and the angle you have chosen just makes this even greater impact. The perspective is very good and the natural light adds to the atmosphere of the photo with lovely repeated line and arches Excellent detail throughout, I like especially weathering in the stonework and sense of space and light. Wonderful architecture, very well seen and photographed. Congrats. TFS. Best rgds
clic (16074) 2011-01-12 7:11
Many thanks for your kind words, Filipe.
I have the impression of wearing a monk's cloth and hearing my footsteps reverberated by these beautiful stone arches that enlight the austerity of grey walls!
timecapturer (49288) 2011-01-12 7:14
beautifully composed and controlled HDR shot that works excellently. Amazing textures and I like the light and shade on the floor. Well done!
rodgerg (55767) 2011-01-12 7:38
I visited this superb religious edifice located in... a superb city.
Excellent shot with a POV and a framing well selcetd. This POV and the repetition of the arcades give a very great propsect effect to the image. Good managment of a difficult light too.
peppe59 (14551) 2011-01-12 10:51
bellissima immagine con un post produzione di grande livello fotografico.
lucasgalodoido (21378) 2011-01-12 17:09
realmente uma bela imagem do interior dessa igreja nos presenteia aqui, e gosto dos tons das cores, sobretudo no piso, da textura das paredes e do forte contraste. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,
shevchenko (18892) 2011-01-12 18:39
Fantastic color and lighting effect, the HDR version always give us a suprise, tidy shot to show the corridor, good perspective, creative PP work to create an artistic image, well done.
Waylim (25368) 2011-01-12 23:54
Beautiful shot of the cathedral, I like very much the POV of the long hallway that lead us in through the arch of this amazing architecture. the texture of the stone work and art is really sharpe and in such great detail. My complements. Thanks.
foozi (7101) 2011-01-13 0:59
superb perspectives of the arches and the colours are dense and rich.
Exciting perspective composition.
Nice and effective lighting too.
Cricri (111351) 2011-01-13 1:09
Un cadrage bien penser entre les colonnes sur les côtés, la vue profonde remplie de magnifiques rendu des détails et des couleurs, très bon travail et image
paninho (2931) 2011-01-13 2:56
Uma fotografia diferente daquelas que costumas apresentar, mas com uma edição muito bem trabalhada e com um resultado final excelente! Porque é que utilizaste o filtro pola neste caso?
Um abraço de Paris!
tober (8797) 2011-01-13 4:24
Hi Filipe, fascinating ambience with the blueish colour of the basement, the tombs and the Manueline styled columns and the ceiling. Congratulations, Tolga
ikeharel (62879) 2011-01-13 4:30
Never been to Evora, Filipe.
Picture on the length of the corridor well collected as fine DOF, good light illuminates fron side windows with daylight, and intense colors enhanced.
Juntas (7960) 2011-01-13 8:29
Olá Filipe. Um PP bem interessante e forte a cheirar a clarify haha. Excelentes detalhes bem sharpados até ao limite, diria eu. Boas cores e profundidae também. Nice work.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-01-13 8:45
Tu as bien fait d'utiliser un pied pour obtenir cette belle photo de ce cloître très vénérable et très beau. J'aime la mise en valeur de la pierre et des belles voutes gothiques.
npecanhuk (69964) 2011-01-13 8:56
Uma bela foto do interior dessa catedral!
O pp agrada-me muito e o resultado visual tem lindas cores e luminosidade! Texturas, formas, nitidez dos detalhes, pdv escolhido, formato horizontal, moldura em preto & branco e composição excelentes também!
Parabéns, abraços e até logo,
ruisc_pt (10892) 2011-01-13 10:18
Uma bela imagem.
Eu estari atentado a dizer que utilizaste a tecnica HDR aqui para conseguir detalhes tão bons em todos os níveis deluz...?
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2011-01-13 10:55
a very nice capture of inside of this cathedral. The blue floor along with the light and shadow effect created a mystic atmosphere. Nice presentation. Tfs.
josepmarin (57911) 2011-01-13 10:56
ésta es una bella imagen del interior de la catedral, bajo una buena luz y con un buen equilibrio con las sombras.
Me gusta el efecto del HDR que da mucha potencia gráfica a la foto, enfatizando las texturas de las piedras y dando unas tonalidades muy interesantes.
Buen trabajo, amigo.
macjake (61418) 2011-01-13 15:23
looks very unique, almost like a HDR, is this HDR?
it also looks almost like a painting of some sort.
lovely textures and atmosphere, has a haunting emotion.
excellent depth and composition.
well done my friend
paura (47182) 2011-01-13 16:32
contraste magnífico aqui, mostrando essas belezas de formas arquitetônicas em linda composição fotográfica. Incrível a idade da construção. Nessa época nada existia de civulização por aqui...
Graal (100106) 2011-01-13 23:40
beautiful architecture of cathedral. Nice details and perspective. An interesting effect of pp. I like it.
Have a nice day.
Nicou (130007) 2011-01-14 0:35
sueprbe perspective et cadrage, quel rendu dans le tons, ce arche, le bleu sur le pavage, spelndide compo.
bravo et maitié
mkamionka (32459) 2011-01-14 2:42
wonderful work. The composition is great, you are lucky to capture this place so empty. The pillars make a great framing and I see you took an extra care to straighten the perspective. I like the processing it has well emphsized the texture f the old walls which creates a nice atmosphere here.
Have a good weekend,
adramad (40612) 2011-01-14 5:35
Una composicion muy bella, la imagen muestra un buen plano de la belleza del claustro, buena perspectiva con un buen DOF.
Un gran trabajo con esta iluminacion tan equilibrada y tan bonitos tonos de color.
Pasa un buen dia. Saludos cordiales.
hispic (9652) 2011-01-14 18:25
A beautiful inside of the cathedral! light shows the details of attractive interior though it's a bit of a pity for such a good photo that a barrel distortion can be seen. Blue on the floor with a nice perspective is truly impressive. Marvelous work!
Have a nice weekend, Hisashi
jemaflor (89351) 2011-01-15 8:40
Very well managed, the composition is perfect with the fg in the left side, great effect with the light and the contrast between warm and cold brightness.
papagolf21 (90424) 2011-01-15 13:16
Bonsoir, cher ami Filipe,
Oh ! une magnifique image qui nous transporte tout droit dans un conte de fées. L'image donne une impression de relief extraordinaire.
La cathédrale prend une dimension exceptionnelle.
Meilleurs voeux 2011.
emka (86391) 2011-01-15 14:45
Woooow, it is a photo of the Evora cathedral. Fantastic view of the vaults. Incredible colours, stunning sharpness. I also was here but here was not so successful. I like it VERY much. A big hug to you dear friend
mvdisco (17784) 2011-01-15 15:14
Beautiful presentation of the Cathedral of Evora ,
Nice POV. and DoF . well presented and composed,
Excellent details of the interior of the cathedrale,
great colors and light,
amazing perpective and details.
very well done.
bukitgolfb301 (37718) 2011-01-15 17:35
Hi my dear Filipe
This seems to be a painting! You are a magician for color arrangement. Tasteful, wonderful and marvelous shot. Best framework and very well considered composition as usual as your other masterpieces. Thanks for your sharing with finest work, have a good Sunday and best regards,
AKITA (15125) 2011-01-15 20:59
a beautiful picture of splendid inner space of the cathedral,
arches are well composed to make wonderful perspective of corridor,
this blue lighted floor looks mysterious, and the contrast between light and shadow is very attractive here,
mystic ambience is well expressed,
thank you for your excellent shot,
kordinator (20149) 2011-01-16 2:14
Splendid gothic architecture you captured.
Wonderful iterior composition.
Perspective and framing are perfect.
Colors are unusual and original.
Great depth of field.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2011-01-16 5:06
Esta é uma imagem que nos coloca totalmente em épocas medievais. Acho que é um efeito HDR. O resultado é notável. bela composição. Excelente fotografia.
adores (40946) 2011-01-17 9:37
Ando para voltar a esta Sé, mas às vezes, quanto mais perto, mais longe!
Gosto muito deste pov e da edição que fizeste! Até os tons azulados do chão resultaram bem. Deixaram-te entrar com o tripé?
Royaldevon (33385) 2011-01-18 1:04
I am not always a great fan of HDR but I think it has been expertly and sensitively used, here. It has accentuated the details but, more than that, it has supplied an atmosphere, a mood, which could not have been achieved otherwise.
A great pov, with strong receding lines, leads the viewer at speed!
My warm regards,
batalay (36958) 2011-01-18 3:50
The colors are haunting, the textures are preserved with impressive fidelity. I wonder how this photo would look in B&W, accentuating its age. I've frequently seen photos from Évora, and this one is an added incentive for me to visit.
danos (90305) 2011-01-18 6:21
impressive shot with the well saturated colours to be captured perfect.I like the great contrast of the colours with the blue on the floor to makes the scene even more effective.Well done.
Have a good afternoon,Danos
siolaw (38292) 2011-01-18 9:34
The place looks just so mysterious... taking us back to the Middle Age... and the expo is just fine with amazing colours.
Really good one
Longroute (19396) 2011-01-18 10:22
you have overcome yourself here!
not only this interior of Gothic cathedral is so fine and artistically outstanding but the pov you chose allowed a fantastic prospective sense and you managed very well the light.
The photo has an excellent sharpness and contrast which produces a strong impact (I wish I know your technique!)- in short: a real masterpiece.
patdeph (35748) 2011-01-18 13:34
one more time ,I am impressed by the beauty of the light and the colors,the excellent shrapness,and the great perspective!Really wonderful!
yeln (11516) 2011-01-18 21:11
izjemna svetloba, e posebej mi je več moder odtenek na tleh!!! zelo lepa predstavitev kulturne dedičine!! tfs!
lep dan, vojko
Charo (51210) 2011-01-19 11:13
Me gusta mucho la perspectiva de este pórtico y el tratamiento de HDR aplicado, realza el color y la textura de las piedras.
Muy buena la luz y definición.
anokutan (15097) 2011-01-19 23:18
Perspective and framing are perfect . A splendid gothic architecture and nice archways you captured.
sacimar (26205) 2011-01-20 6:41

Excellent picture of the cathedral with excellent details.
Amazing perpective.Very well composed.
SWEETFREEDOM (23460) 2011-01-20 7:56

nikkitta (16758) 2011-01-20 12:18
Muy buena foto donde ss aprecian todos los interesantes detalles de esta catedral
Has usado hdr para dar esa luz onirica a la imagen
De todas formas TFS
pablominto (53746) 2011-01-21 0:00
An interesting inside view of the cathedral!
Good interior details and fine use of existing light, great sense of depth...
Effective point of view to show characteristics of the architecture!
jhm (144204) 2011-01-21 3:28
I like the great contrast of the colours with the blue on the floor to makes the scene even more effective.
This is incredible indoor architectural structure and the angle you have chosen just makes this even greater impact.
You create depth and perspective, with a wonderful ceiling too.
Nice composition, TFS.
nilotpal_patra (1688) 2011-01-21 4:03
Namaskar Filip Rocha,
It is realy wonderful Picture. Nice Frame. Nice colour, contrast and sharpness. Nice POV. TFS.
Glint (6171) 2011-01-22 13:00
hello Filipe, I really like this well balanced composition.I like the light and the colour palette. It has a quality similar to an HDR photo, is this due to the cokin filter? I have never used one before and perhaps I should try this.Excellent shrapness.
mesutilgim (89070) 2011-01-29 15:33
Wonderfull capture with good pov and amazing light and colors. Nice framing
TFS and have a nice weekend
danyy (0) 2011-01-30 12:32
on voit dans cette photo, toute la puissance d'un post processing discret et terriblement efficace. Iljour très fort au niveau des contastes qui affinent les détails de cette scène remarquablement cadrée.
My best regards.
bebbetto (36) 2011-02-02 9:30
I think is an HDR PP. Very good result. The perspective is excellent.
The atmosphere reminds old and dark stories of the 13th century ....
Angshu (56568) 2011-02-07 21:05
The effect of the PP adds to the mystery of this shot. Indeed the perspective has been well rendered & the depth is excellent. Your light management is also good. What I love seeing is the repeating arches on the vaulted ceiling...good work!
ricochet (9696) 2011-02-11 8:14
Wow, beautiful picture with great dof, very nice textures and a PP really very well executed!
Have a nice day
chandrapranil (1085) 2011-02-17 12:10
Out of all the images I have seen today this is the ultimate! Your POV, light management, sharpness and post processing are first class!
Do you mind me asking how you achieved this effect?
Thank you for sharing
Schnappilic (9690) 2011-02-18 13:12
Beautiful view of the cathedral. Excellent POV and dept.
jmdias (58920) 2011-03-31 17:41
já visitei a catedral de évora , mas nunca esta área. linda a foto. ótimo enquadramento, luz e nitidez. um ótimo trabalho.
axiotea (21649) 2011-08-19 7:54
the PP works very well to introduce us the cloisters' interior of the Evora cathedral...It feels like travelling in the ancient time. Love the luminosity and the colours tones.
Wait to see your vacation pictures ;D
kiks (11785) 2012-03-07 7:44
I like the PP work you did on this photo. The increase of contrast and the blue light add something to it.
