Here's another photo of the old "Convento dos Monges". This is an old convent completely in ruins, situated in Serra de Monfurado, between Santiago do Escoural and Montemor-o-Novo. It was founded in the beginning of the 18th century by a group of Hermits of St. Paul who lived in the area. Damaged by the earthquake of 1755, it was definitely abandoned with the extiction of the religious orders in the 19th century.
Today it's in ruins but some remains of its magnificence can still be found there.

Hi Ola dear Ana, how are you?
Very tasteful and original image as your trademark style, Ana. I like this deep and significant color touch. Exposure is also perfect to enhance the green color at all.
All the best and have a good start of a new week!

This is a nice shot of this old convent. The existing light provides nice areas of sun and shade creating contrast for the shot. The photo has nice sharpness and detail.

I love the feel of depth within the limited space with lovely touch of warm light coming thru. I like the effect you have created the fact that this sad derelict old church is exposed to the elements possibly awaiting to collapse. A well captured and thoughtful piece of photo journalism of current situation providing a much more visually interesting focus straight onto the main interest. Good presentation with abundant of detail. Excellent reportage, Congrats
