First glimpse of this city and I fell in Love.
I had this feeling that I've been transported back to Buenos Aires (my favorite city) upon seeing some of the sights.
So, I Had a full day exploring Lisboa and decided to end the trip up there in Castelo de São Jorge. I was just stunned, enchanted and the concept of time seem to be erased. Spent a few hours just killing time.
It was such a nice feeling of just sitting there, watching for the sun to set without minding about time or whatsoever work. I guess this had to be one of the best nights during my trip this time.

Marvelous "blue hours" city panorama photo. Perfect viewpoint and excellent deep depth of field. The great city lighting and the fantastic sky color also lends a lovely contrast to the scene.

Very good balance for the lightning between the town and the sky. This balance is making the shot, sharing a real nice mood. For shore, the clean air, allowing to see far is also participating.

This is a beautiful night shot from Portugal. Exposure is very good in hard conditions. Some dark spots and some bright so all added up, you hit the right exposure. TFS.
Have a nice day,

What a spectacular view this is. Colors and lights of my beautiful city are great.
Really a fine spectacle with intense colours and cromatic contrast. A bright photo even if it's dark.

The composition and light management are first rate in this shot of Lisbon. The blue in the sky is especially appealing.
