Hi dear TE friends
This picture was made with my first camera. I was looking my old pictures and choose this one because i like the tones and POV.
Cascais is a town on the Atlantic Ocean about 30 kilometres west of Lisbon, Portugal. It is a cosmopolitan suburb of the Portuguese capital and one of the richest municipalities in Portugal. The former fishing village gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Nowadays it is a popular vacation spot for both Portuguese and foreign tourists.
Today there is a large yacht harbour and several small sand beaches in and around town. Cascais is easily reached from Lisbon by car or by frequent inexpensive commuter trains. It has the ruins of a castle, an art and sea museum as well as parks and the charming cobbled streets of the historic centre. The town has many hotels and tourist apartments as well as many good restaurants of varying cost. It is a fine base to use for those visiting Lisbon and its environs who prefer to stay outside of the city yet in an equally urban and sophisticated environment.
I hope you like it !

C'est vrai qu'elle est bien jolie cette photo avec de belles couleurs, un ciel nuageux qui ajoute au décor.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Nice and luminous picture that benefits from these attractive clouds, your first camera did good job on the exposure and the resulting impression is nice. Just you have too much empty water foreground here, gerring more panoramic would be a good idea.
Have a nice day JY

your "old" composition is very beautiful.
POV is excellent and colors wonderful, especially the sky and clouds formations.

the sky in that mixture of clouds above the city is always attracting for a closer view and I like the view on the water line. A lovely summer capture.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

a lovely POV over the sea, the colors are wonderful and the sky is very nice! I really like your framing here, looks very nice and calm, thanks for sharing!
Docarmo (9639) 2008-07-28 6:35
Gostei muito desta composição, mostra um belo visual da cidade, com uma praia muito atraente. A luminosidade e a nitidez estão impecáveis. As nuvens estão fantásticas, parecendo 3D.
asajernigan (19669) 2008-07-28 6:37
Excellent bright and colorful shot! Your composition is fine showing the water leading the eye into the scene and the placement of the swimming beach to one side works great. The lighting is fine and the great sky provides a nice backdrop for the shot.

axiotea (21649) 2008-07-28 8:30
You did well in looking at your older photos because this one got an excellent luminosity enhancing the natural colors. I also like the water texture, the blue and very cloudy sky:
Cricri (95455) 2008-07-28 9:46
Yes de trés belles couleurs et un POV bien choisi surune partie de la plage et l'autre de la ville, un ciel superbe qui s'ajoute merveilleusement bien
berek (32296) 2008-07-28 10:45
I want to go here my friend. I am so tried . I miss my holiday... and ... so..
great atmosphere and sea colour. well framed picture. Have a nice week.

Lindas cores, boa qualidade, boa perspectiva. Gosto muito dessa paisagem, e aprecio muito a Casa Seixas. Das vezes que estive em Cascais, precisamente neste lugar, o céu estava menos carregado de nuvens. Mas é sempre um deleite ver fotos através da perspectiva de outros olhares.
barrufeto_77 (28876) 2008-07-28 12:22
Me encantan las nubes estas sobre la ciudad en contraposición con los colores de las casas. Bien visto!
Un saludo, Oscar

Nice photo made with a strange camera. Charming view of Cascais. Splendid colour of the sea. I like also the houses. Last September I was in Portugal and I could choose something near Lisbon (e.g. Cascais) or Algarve. It is nice here, and close to Lisbon, but Algarve seemed more interesting to me.
siamesa (27701) 2008-07-28 14:31
As cores são suavemente belas.As nuvens quase tomaram conta do céu inteiro. Linda foto. Adorei.
siolaw (37642) 2008-07-28 23:26
Yes the colors are nice, specially the greenish blue of the water, contrasting well with the red tile roofs... The light is nice too with well expoesed dynamic cloudy sky.

Conhecendo o local de onde tiraste a foto e a vista que de lá se pode ter, acho ques esta imagem ficou aquém das reais possibilidades fotogénicas de Cascais. Uma vista panorâmica teria sido o ideal. Assim como está, tem demasiado mar e pouca "terra".
Mas, tem um céu bonito e cores muito boas.
Charo (51208) 2008-07-29 2:07
Esta imagem traz-me recordações da minha primeira visita a Portugal há muitos anos a partir de Galicia a Setúbal, mas eu passei lá permaneceram. Agora imagine que tomou a partir de um barco. Excelentes cores e um lindo céu.

O mar está com uma cor fantástica, apetece mergulhar! E o céu ajudou muito neste dia.

Ciao Airee, splendid landscape with wonderful colors, superb sky, I like a lot, ciao Silvio

The composition is nicely created, and the colors and resolution are exquisite in this view of Cascais. Your notes are always very interesting,

Great POV and excellent panoramic scene with beautiful colours and light. Well done my dear friend...
All the best...
zeca (19762) 2008-07-29 22:26
Uma bonita foto de Cascais! A cor do mar é muito bonita e contrasta bem com as casas amarelas. Gosto também da arquitetura, e o pequeno pedaço de praia dinamiza bem o primeiro plano.

Hi Aires, I've seen many similar photos of Cascais from this angle but this one has a different taste. Light and tones are very well balanced. Best regards, Tolga

Very nice shot in a lovely holiday atmosphere.
Beautiful place, good colours and even perfect clouds on the sky;)
robertosalguero (196) 2008-08-04 1:11
The atmosphere of this image is very pleasant. I think the colour of the water gives a nice perspective of this weather in this part of the world. Excellent composition with very good details and clarity. The town seem pretty and the clouds add a nice extra element to the view. Thanks Aires.

Una pintoresca toma de Cascais, me gustan mucho los contrastes de colores con los techos rojos y el azul del mar, el cielo quedo estupendo. Muy buen POV y también muy buena definición.
