The next photo from the series "Emka on the roof". This is the roof of a Cathedral in Evora, here is the one of its two different towers. This is a great place, I spent there quite a lot time(making many photos :)). The roof is big - the area of cathedral itself and one can admire the red roofs of the town in every directions. It is not me, of course, on the photo, but I was just there shooting Diana Temple.
So, when you ever go to Evora, do not miss these views!!

I don't know why but this very beautiful, very picturesque top of the cathedral reminded me of a peaked helmet which some knights wore in older times!
the effect is jsut great - with the blue sky and clouds in the background :) Very interesting view and very good POV! If I happen to travel there I will visit it for sure.
Wishing you a nice Sunday,

emka on the roof...like a cat???
ladny ostroc.. I like the perspective and the colour contrast with the blue sky...

The tower looks majestic against the sky and the fine clouds. It has a heavy compactness despite the many fine decorations that I like. It is nicely framed by the rows of the balustrades that lead me safely towards it. The few colours are very pleasant and the light management is excellent.

Merci pour le partage et bon dimanche.

When I was in Portugal, back in 2004, I didn't visit Evora... well, as I see your wonderful pictures taken there, I know I must go there if ever travel back to that Country!
This photograph is marvelous! So many interesting and beautiful architectural details! And that sky... gorgeous!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colors and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congratulations!

Uma imagem muito bonita do terraço da Catedral de Évora, a visão deste ponto é excelente para toda a cidade. Espero que você tenha gostado de Évora. O acesso aos telhados dos monumentos não é uma coisa muito comum, mas sempre existe excepções.Eu tenho uma foto igual à sua.
Good work to capture this image.
Excellent composition, very nice colours, and sharpness.

This photo really conveys the feeling of being hing up and very near the clouds! Some interesting architecture and a very sharp and detailed capture.

davvero una bella composizione arricchita da un bel cielo che fa anche da ottimo sfondo.
Ottimo lo sharp e il DOF.
ciakgiak (30329) 2010-04-25 14:56
bellissima la prospettiva che culmina sul torrione della cattedrale, la luce è magnifica e contribuisce non poco ad esaltarne l'architettura, mentre il cielo è un'eccellente sfondo a questa belle composizione. Un caro abbraccio.
mauro61 (52527) 2010-04-25 15:19
uno spettacolo questa architettura che si staglia contro l'azzurro del cielo.
La perfetta definizione fa cogliere ogni minimo particolare costruttivo.
Ben fatto amica mia.

Scegli sempre il difficile e travolgi tutto , rendi grandi i particolari e esci da schemi tradizionali vincente .
La foto equilibratissima ed ad un "appello" tutto
elemento centrale , i due laterali e campanile a vela ...ottima

Hello Malgorzata, The symetry here is wonderful. A great composition and a splendid background of wispy clouds. Finding buildings so unique like this one, is difficult to do. I applaud your fortune for having captured this excellent bit of architecture. BTW, my apologies for losing the "a" from your name in my last MV post. Regards, Roger

Loud and clear, we say for the simple and amazing. The detail of that roof is so attractive. The little star of architecture. A strong point of your observation and souvenirs. Many thanks for your presence and continuation, dear Malgorzata.

Wow! I like this composition and colours combination. Superb sharpness. My compliments!
DINOZOR (14766) 2010-04-26 7:44
Je ne découvre cette merveille qu'aujourd'hui et je dis bravo comme tant d'autres avant moi dont je partage les observations.
Le sujet est original, son approche l'est tout autant et en accroît la force.
Bravo et TFS.

The roof is indeed a very nice place, good that you climbed all these stairs for us, this photo gains extra appeal thanks to these nice clouds populating the sky
Have a nice evening JY
mesutilgim (67940) 2010-04-26 13:56
Good evening dear Malgorzata,
Enjoy the life, live in the day and .... ! In order not to violete the TE terms I did only put 4 dots ! But you've understand what I mean. This is also my philosophy.
This is also one of the reasons why I am here !
How could I be able to see "Emka on the roof" ?
Another wonderfull capture agains a great sky with great details and amazing colors.
TFS and good night !

paololg (31442) 2010-04-27 1:50
Ciao cara Malgorzata,
like this POV, because it seems that the cathedral is suspended in the sky. Excellent choice of perspective in a photo done with perfect photo quality and excellent light management. BRAVA!!!
Ciao, buona giornata!

A first class photo Malgorzata,
everything is simply perfect here! This architecture is really outstanding and original and the image has an excellent clarity and sharpness together with a very good light management. The colours are so appealing and the sky is a major contribution to the beauty of the composition.
Compliments and thanks for sharing,

une petite touche d'irréel avec ce rendu du ciel (assez bruité d'ailleurs et c'est dommage).
Un angle de prise de vue bien choisi pour un regard naturellement guidé vers l'arrière plan.
Angshu (51174) 2010-05-01 6:22
This looks quite an unique structure. The perspective and lead-in has been well created. But I'm impressed by the quite unique and extraordinary structure of the steeple and the bell tower on the left. Good work!
yeln (11502) 2010-05-01 12:53
excellent central composition with very nice sharpness and colors.
sky with clouds is fantastic!
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-05-03 15:43
I never was in the roof of Cathedral in Evora, dear Malgorzata !
This is a wonderful picture with lovely clouds in the sky
Excellent colors and sharpness
Regards my friend

I've been away for several days and only now I'm seeing all the photos!
Good pov to show the tower of the Cathedral. These two crenellated walls on both sides are great they lead our eyes to the tower. Good light, sharpness and a beautiful sky!I'm glad you liked the city:)!
ikeharel (37280) 2010-09-27 6:40
A very clear image of the rooftop scene, Malgorzata.
Good contrast to partly cloudy sky, and winter light's still prevails.
adramad (27550) 2011-09-06 14:11
In fact both have gone through the roof of the cathedral, this composition is impressive for its beauty and clarity, the sky was the most pictorial one could wish, the originality of this tower is so perfect here, I also made pictures of this tower from another angle, because I went up in the morning. Well done. I love it.
