This is a detail that I like in the old "Convento dos Monges" - it can be found on one of the walls and what we see on the right is the corner of the corridor. 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.

Simple, but effective and beautiful composition of light and shadow!

You created an eye-catching graphic abstract from this well-spotted detail. Great colours and the light suitable for this sort of photography.

It is simple and yet it makes a very attractive abstract with its emphasis on light and shade. You have given it a strong impact with your careful composition.
Have a great day,

Cela ferait un support parfait pour y accrocher une poêle pour faire la cuisine.Le détail est bien saisi, bien cadré et bien net.

A smart and elegant composition by very simple means. You have placed the two central circles and the vertical shadow very nicely. I like the tones of golden, brown and green very much.

Minimaliste mais terriblement efficace! Bonne observation très bien mise en image.

Interesting brief infor, a fraction of the old convent wall made up of solid shape turned into a simple graphical-abstract image. The matured colour, textures, light and shadow add to the rustic olde feel. Great effort and tfs

The textures are very nicely rendered and I love the simplicity and tranquility that this curcle invokes.
Very well composed and nicely presented in just a right amount!

This looks more like a non-figurative painting, a fine example of modern art, beautifully composed and balanced. Beautiful and harmonic colour scale.

Hello Ana - A wonderful observational shot where the simplicity of the subject requires top class management to reveal the perfection of texture, colour and light.
Very nicely done. I like it!

What I marvel about your photography is your photographic eye and penchant for minimalism. I would have simply passed on this view & yet you show us a marvellous abstract picture which is high on impact yet so simple in nature...Bravo indeed!
