This a view against the light of Rua do Carmo, a small but important shopping street in Lisboa. The picture is taken from the platform of Elevador de Santa Justa. This street lies directly below the Bairro Alto and is right next to Rossio (Praca Pedro IV) and becomes quite busy during evening hours. From the elevator platform you can overlook the whole Rossio square and the streets next to it.

I like the stark contrast of the figures and shadows with the light pavement. Black and white was an excellent choice for this.

the BW works excellent

I like a lot this high contrast shot with its POV from above
Excellent choice of vertical format and use of the diagonal for much dynamism

I immediately recognize the street and the spot you captured this image.
I like the idea of black&white....since Lisboa is sometimes so "timeless"

You have already posted another good B&w photo of downtown Lisbon. This one is also great!- the pov, the b&w, the composition with the people passing, the shadows, the names of the stores. Light is also great! Good work!

An adorable B&W shot from a good POV. The strong sunlight helped to create stark contrasts, highly prominent especially in the shadows of the people. The vertical framing is an excellent choice and the overall composition is very strong. TFS and best wishes,

You chose a black and white image taken out of the hight
Excellent choice of vertical format and use of the diagonal for much dynamism.
You chose a wonderful angle this gives perspective and depth image.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Monday,

Interresting picture with this choice of POV and the backlight giving a strong contrast. Nice game between light and shadows. Beautiful shot.

Strong composition with intriguing silhouettes and shadows. It looks great in portrait format and monochrome.
