Bom dia Luis
superbe vue sur la palais de Sintra et ces couleurs magnifiques. La composition est réussie avec le palais dans son berceau d'arbres et la vue sur la plaine en arrière plan. Félicitations.

Impressive architecture and pleasant colour scheme. It must be an amazing place to explore,; is it open to the public?
Great composition and POV

El fondo difuso hace resaltar el palacio, que sobresale de la vegetación que lo rodea. Buena foto.

Hola Luis ,
That reminds me a superb day in Sintra last winter . Unfortunatly , I'd not found the path to this POV . Splendid view of teh wonderful castle , with the trees in the FG . May be a little overexposure of the clear parts .

this is a unique and absolutely fascinating palace with so many elaborate charcteristics. I like very much your picture that shows us with superb clarity so many details of the original architecture. Your composition is great, the palace seems to have emerged from the lovely greenery and has a marvellous, deep view behind it. You've managed the light, the depth and the colours very aptly and made a wonderful presentation. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

The distance between the palace and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the architecture of the palace. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.

Um palácio bem colorido e bonito, e que deve ter uma vista espetacular também! Uma linda composição, com muito boas cores e profundidade! Belíssimo trabalho!

Beautiful colors of the impressive palace atop the Sintra mountain. Nice taken from roadside perspective, and from a perfect ditance to post with it's surrounding green grove.
When we were there it was pouring rain, and happened that a cloud was "sitting" on its summit - so did see nothing of this "jewel" edifice.
Light and clarity perferctly set.
