And here's a photo of the last Flowery Streets, that took place this month.
This event that takes place in Redondo, every two years. For around a week, the old white streets of Redondo get really colourful and crowded with visitors. The streets are decorated with colourful paper flowers, made by the inhabitants, each one of them according to a specific theme. They are all different and really worth a visit. In this case, the theme was Flowery Carpets, an event that takes place in another city of Portugal, where the streets are decorated with long carpets of flowers.

This really jumps off the page, what a fantastic display of color and perspective! You've composed this in a most agreeable fashion which creates a long and very evident lead in taking us along for the walk under this canopy of beauty. The diamond pattern design on the pavement along with the shadows renders a strong graphic effect as well. This looks like a wonderful place to linger and truly take in the atmosphere. Terrific follow up to your previous pictures! Thanks for providing another striking visual. Have a great day ahead.

uno scatto di grande effetto sia per il bel punto di ripresa che ha valorizzato al massimo la bella fuga di linee verso l'orizzonte sia per il soggetto che per i colori assai vivaci.
Una ripresa molto ben fatta!Bravissima!
Ciao e buon fine settimana

This is another colorful shot that has brightened up TE. :-) The pink paper really jumps off the screen, and once again there are wonderful and artistic shadows to enjoy. I like the flower portrait that's off to the side, and the depth in this photo is also great.

Gorgeous street, this looks like a fairyland in vibrant colors fit for Alice & co! It's so well detailed and dominating the whole scene in subtle light, shadows and the immense depth. Bold, striking and highly contrasted to blue sky with lots more to savour the eyes and it's outrageously stunning of which you should be very proud. My congrats.

Fabulosa la gran perspectiva de esta calle, con unos adornos que sorprenden por su belleza y originalidad, el colorido es fascinante, la mismo que el fuerte grafismo de la imagen, potenciado por las magnificas sombras.
Magnifica iluminacion y una nitidez muy buena para recrearse con la imagen.
Un trabahi bien realizado. Me encanta.
Ten una buena noche.
Saludos muy cordiales.

I absolutely love the graphism of this composition that exalts the setting and offers great visual pleasure. You've used depth and perspective most effectively and ensured excellent sharpness that favours the graphical quality of the picture and allows us to fully appreciate the vibrancy of patterns and colours. Marvellous use of lighting and contrast, superb work. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best,

what a beautiful sight. The people are so creative in this area. The umbrellas are so interesting and pretty and this here is another great idea again. It decorates nicely streets and makes it double as interesting for tourists. Fantastic bright color too.
