This is the castle of Viana do Alentejo,a beautiful and well preserved gothic castle. It was built in the 14th century, by King Dinis but many works have been carried on since then. Several important events have taken place here, including royal weddings. What we see here is the Manueline Parish Church (one of the churches situated within the walls)and one of the four towers of the castle.

Interesting POV to illustrate this castle. I like the architecture and the contrasts. Well taken.

very interesting angle, interesting geometry, a difficult lighting conditions, the foreground could be a little brighter.

What amazing light you captured, and combined with the composition of the beautiful architecture, all makes a very appealing scene. The vivid blue and gold colors are really attractive.
Thanks as always

I like the colors--the almost white castle against the blue sky. Great lighting and the shadows created depth. Sharp details. Well done, tfs.

This is a nice shot with vivid contrast. The polarized blue sky contrasts the whites and yellow of the shot nicely. The play on sun and shadow is great here.

This picture is almost a composition of two frames...I liked very much your composition with the stairs leading up for both. The tower is a strong focal point on the right as is the fine church against the deep blue sky!

beautiful place, I like your original composition. The light is strongly polarized which produced amazing well saturated colors. The shadows got enhanced as well, may be a bit too much but the areas in the shade are less important so it all helps to emphasize the main subjects.
Very well done!
