Classic Lisbon view from Alfama but I like this lonely palm and besides, I am lazy and have no idea what to show at the moment.

piekna pocztowka z Lizbony.Az przypominaja mi sie moje wizyty w tym pieknym miescie.Ta samotna palma fantastycznie komponuje sie z architektura i charakterystycznymi czerwonymi dachami Lizbony.Bez niej widok z pewnoscia nie bylby az tak urzekajacy.Bardzo podobaja mi sie rowniez wyraziste i mocne kolory oraz kontrast pomiedzy nimi.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie i zycze milego WE

Hello Malgo ! Smart choice of tree and of a frame to accentuate the soaring church towers. Good graphism post against the blue sky with splendid sharpness.

Ola Malgorzata ,
São lindos estes telhados vermelhos de Alfama fazem sempre um belo contraste com o azul , gostei da enorme palmeira em primeiro plano .
We have the Church of Saint Estevão Séc.XVIII, the current Church total was reconstructed between 1733-1740, according to risk of Manuel da Costa Negreiros later under orientation of Mateus Vicente de Oliveira. Characteristic National monument of the baroque , its oitavada plant seats in a simple geometry of tracing to rectangular with the cut angle conferring a notable to it originalidade. Its façade appears divided in 3 bodies for salient pilasters being the central office concluded for triangular pediment on top by cross and fit by two towers. This symmetry was lost with earthquake, that it destroyed one of the sineiras towers. In the interior they are distinguished the high altar with retable of rock and the sculpturesque group of cut carried through for Jose de Almeida, the lateral altars, collection of statues and tiles of the old sacristy.
Um abraço Gonçalo

an excellent composition full of wonderful light and colours. The red roofs are so attractive and contrast so perfectly with the sky and the green of the huge palm tree. Beautiful!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

bella immagine di Lisbona con il mare in BG a dare profondità.
La palma in FG arricchisce la composizione e il cielo completa il tutto.

En effet, une très belle carte postale de Lisbonne la belle. Les toit rouges sont un très bel atout, la mer et le ciel font le reste.

This is certainly a beautiful picture with the lonely palm above all the red roofs and a blue sky behind. Nothing complicated but still a very pleasant view!

Morning Malgo, What a splendid Pov, over these roof top's in Lisbon, Alfama. Super big view with expanding horizon. Well managed and presented. Have a good Sunday, Cheers Iain.
ikeharel (37378) 2012-03-25 1:54
Lazy but have a wonderful collection to show, Malgo.
This was taken from a beautiful Miradouro-dos-Porta-des-Sol, a place most know to show a good view of Alfama roof-tops.
The palm tree gave scale onto the river width.
Enjoy a nice sunday,

Buona la qualità dell'immagine,

Même les grues ne m'empêcheront pas d'aimer cette belle carte postale de Lisbonne surmonté de ce joli ciel.
holmertz (26980) 2012-03-25 12:45
Well if you can bring out a picture like this out of your archives you shouldn't need to worry about what to show. It's a fine compositin, but then Lisbon is among those cities that look good from almost any angle. The palm is nice, so is the church and so are the many red roofs.
dkmurphys (36831) 2012-03-25 12:49
Original POV over Lisbon. Never seen from this angle. Well taken, enjoy a fine week.
Budapestman (82620) 2012-03-25 13:48

la carte postale teintée de rouges et de jolis bleus. la touche trop discrète de vert de la végétation.
Beaucoup de profondeur et des lumières vraiment parfaites, bien distribuées.
J'aurais cadré cet arbre un peu plus à droite.
macjake (39235) 2012-03-26 10:44
yes, for sure Portugal is a country that I must travel to at some point.
the cloud coverage is great too with a spattering of little clouds.
I guess Portugal is known for these rust colored rooftops...look great.
tedesse (22124) 2012-03-26 13:59
Doskonaly POV i DOF!
Wspaniala panorama, super kolory i swiatlo.
josepmarin (55063) 2012-03-26 23:52
already I presented a capture with a sight similar to this one, but without the palm and with the presence of a cruise ship in the port.
In your photo the sun was shining in the sky, and was giving a great chromatic power in the red roofs and in the whiteness of the houses and the church, with a nice graphical effect. Lisbon is a very photogenic city, an authentic temptation for the photographers.
A beautiful work.

Hello Malgo - I missed this one and it really lovely. You POV over the rooftops capitalises on the rich orange tiles which are contrasted so perfectly by the crisp whites of the walls and blue of the sky. Even the cranes look attractive! Lovely. Warm regards Rosemary
sacavem (18576) 2012-03-27 13:47
This is a very beautiful and well captured scene. Very picturesque shot.Fabulous river scenery from the miradouro.
ChrisJ (86902) 2012-03-27 23:39
The palm tree is well positioned on the 1/3 axis in this well composed image. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the red roofs & blue sky with wonderful sharpness. Tfs!
