Cascais is surrounded by popular beaches, such as Guincho Beach to the west, and the lush Sintra mountains to the north. Some of its shoreline is cliff-y, attracting tourists for its seascapes and other natural sights such as the Boca do Inferno. It is also becoming a popular golf destination, with over 10 golf courses nearby. Surfing, sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are also popular in the region around Cascais due to favourable weather, wind, and sea conditions. In 2007, Cascais was the official host of the ISAF World Championship in sailing for dinghies and racing yachts.
The municipality also hosts international tennis and motorcycling events and hosted for many years the FIA F1 Portugal Grand Prix. The famous Estoril Casino is one of the largest in Europe. Near the casino is the "Hotel Palácio" (Palace Hotel), a 5-star hotel where scenes of the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service were shot.

C'est rare de voir une plage en cadrage vertical, par contre , cela donne beaucoup de profondeur à la composition. L'image est bien construite.

an image that breaks all the rules but I love it, being a rebel at heart I love taking shots like this and seeing if I can introduce something that makes it work. Your fg interest and diagonal makes it effective, plus the deep blue and feeling of wanting to put a toe in the water entices and captivates superbly. Well done Danny Boy. Top marks!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

A pleasantly lit seascape with superb colours and sharpness. I like the contrast in tones and textures between the two halves of the image and the great feeling of depth.

sembra che la foto penda un po a destra, ma il taglio verticale gli dà una grande profondità.
Belli gli scogli con la sabbia rossa, contrastano molto bene con il mare.

anche a me dà la sensazione di una leggerissima pendenza come già detto da Carlo, però è indiscutibile che il taglio, la luminosità, la composizione ed i colori sono al meglio ed il risultato è eccellente.
Con una leggera raddrizzatina sarebbe perfetta.
Ciao e buona serata

Une belle densité de bleus entre mer et ciel avec un bon équilibre des couleurs avec les teintes chaudes des roches au premier plan.

tedA nice balance of brown sand, grey rocks, dark blue water and clear blue sky. The colours are bright and well saturated. In the far distance we see a town, but this beach looks quiet and secluded.

J'aime ces gros rochers qui donne un coté sauvage, la profondeur avec la ville au loin, tout bien cadrer, des couleurs et lumière magnifiques

Original view from Cascais, usually we see the bay and houses, here we see the quiet ocean. Very pleasant shot.

I enjoy the rocky foreground here.Firstly because it´s so excellently captured with all textures,secondly because it contrasts so beautifuly with dominating blue shades of the sea and the sky.Also the perspective and angle you applied here create really captivating effect.
Have a nice sunday
