Rossio Squere in mid-town Lisbon.
note in background in the santa-Justa-Elvadore, a famouse Eifel-enginer's design, an iron tower with a veranda lookout on the city.
The statue on mid-square is of Dom Pedro the 4th, 27 meters in height.
Taken when the afternoon sun came out for a short period on a mostly rainy day.

The perspective and composition is superb with good contrast and other architectures. The clouds are perhaps a bit overexposed and the definition is not optimal, but overall is a pretty picture.

What a beautiful composition of this emblematic place of Lisbon, a fantastic sky that brings so much beauty to a picture very well executed and with many attractive features, both the lamp and the column, make a good verticality in the picture.
Good measure of the light and beautiful colors.
Have a goog week. Best regards.

I also like Rosio square. Here there are so many things to see. First of all Santa Justa elevator, nice fountain, ruined church above, and this great pavement. Nice colours, it was worth waiting for the while of sun.

Well captured one of the most beautiful squares in Lisbon. You've got even a tower of Santa Justa. Interesting color photos. Wonderful sky.

A well balanced composition of this splendid square. It is well framed making a pleasing juxtaposition between the lamp and the column. I like the lively atmosphere and the lovely sky, also the dynamism to be seen in the waters of the fountain. Good colours and sharpness.

bella e luminosa immagine della piazza in una composizione ricca di particolari.
Mi piace il cielo che sovrasta la scena,

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the fountain then toward the statue and toward the toward which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing bthe details and colors of the buildings. The late afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Many thanks Ike.
The two tall verticals compose a well-balanced poster of Rossio Square featuring a convivial open space for tourists.....and pigeons!
The surrounding architecture is quite appealing in this neat picture.

The fountain looks very beautiful in the square. Reminds me Philadelphia's Logan Square and the swan fountain. There are many interesting details to observe. The quality is very good with nice blue sky as a background. Looks like a very nice place to relax.

interessanter Platz und Kommentar, gut gemacht!

This looks like a pleasant square, surrounded by both antique and modern buildings. Things must have dried up quickly, it does not look wet.
