Lisbon Portugal at sunset from the entrance to St George Fort. The light is hitting the rooftops from the right (west) so this must be taken looking south. I've dodged the dark shadow areas in the alley to bring out more detail. I never noticed the 2 women on the top terrace at left until I loaded this.

Lisbon from its most beautiful and picturesque side!
You captured here perfectly its charm and character.
Superb POV and moody lighting.
yquem46 (38752) 2013-11-27 2:33
Bravo for this beautiful view from above
Very strong impact of this "full block" of white houses with their red roofs, and the opening to the sea
best regards, have a nice day

Your processing has worked well. An excellent composition from foreground to background. All elements hold the viewer's interest. The people are included at strategic locations in the image. Well done.

amazing texture from tall buildings you captured.
jhm (153776) 2013-11-27 3:27
Taken from the altitude, with a fantastic result.
We see the street and people as walkers, but also the water in background.
A lovely depth and perspective picture.
Colours and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

I like the point of view looking down this narrow street toward the river. The people passing by bring the scene to life. The lighting is most attractive and the detail in the architecture well rendered.

The distance between the buildings and the opposite shore is giving depth to the composition. The presence of the people is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Chris ,
a superb plunging view on this typical street with the opening on the sea in the BG , and a subtile capture of the beautiful and Moody evening light .

hi chris. this one and krzysztof's high pov from valletta stand side by side like brothers in the main gallery. good use of the hilly topography to create a deep perspective. an inviting photo for sure.
Noel_Byrne (31452) 2013-11-27 5:16
A beautiful and somewhat dizzying view over the town, this is really superb. My eye is drawn down that street and out over the landscape. Love the graduation of light in the scene too.
Sergiom (80794) 2013-11-27 5:18
J'aime beaucoup le point de vue sur cette charmante petite rue qui semble monter dans la direction du photographe. Le regard porte vers le point d'eau au loin. La lumière est de toute beauté.
mirosu (16265) 2013-11-27 5:31
Excellent view down to the narrow road. The houses are in very good light, the deep DOF is perfect. The people add nice life to the scene. Well done.
Nicou (143208) 2013-11-27 5:52
quelle vue plongeant sur cette étroite rue sueprbe ave ces personnage en tout petite et la forme de l'ouvertrue entre les maison et ces tons clairs c'est mervielleux.
Bravo et amitié

really like this! It is such an iconic shot of Lisbon with the beautiful old buildings overlooking the bay. I love your post processing here it adds atmosphere and a feeling of serenity to the image. Perfect!
Regards - B.
Subhogen (4067) 2013-11-27 6:20
Excellent shot from the roof perhaps. You show the narrow alley in the Fg and the waterbody in the Bg as well. Good vertical composition to get the most out of it. Well taken!
Royaldevon (39344) 2013-11-27 11:18
This is a fine, elevated vantage point to capture house details, street details and the view across the harbour; and, as you noticed later, there are also people details!! I think I would like to spend sunset time up on that terrace; what a view!
I have really enjoyed looking at this shot, with so much to absorb. Besides the wrought iron work on the houses, I also love the warm colours as the sun catches the terra cotta roofs.
My warm regards,
Romano46 (18472) 2013-11-27 12:37
complimenti per questa splendida foto, già notevele nella sua miniatura.
Eccellente composizione e splendida successioni di piani grazie ad un uso molto intelligente del mezzo fotografico. Bello anche il contrasto di colori con l'alternarsi di bianchi e di rossi.
Ciao e buona serata
saxo042 (37890) 2013-11-27 12:45
A very well taken street view with a fantastic depth! There are many dimensions here, the close street scene against the distant view over the river. The red roofs between are important in the composition. Excellent!
nikkitta (17066) 2013-11-27 17:37
A true pleasure to watch and comment, a so, so well composed capture taken from the terrase of .. a KFC may be or MD?

Answer your note
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-11-27 19:22
really like the angles in this and how much i can see in the frame.really a nice pov.
Highmountains (2674) 2013-11-27 20:07
The soft light on the cobbled foot path with two persons walking up the slope; the clarity of the whitewashed walls on either side of the path, the sharpness of the wrought iron railings on the windows of the upper floors; and then, the sun on the top floor of the buildings - over the red tiled roofs create an excellent effect that makes this a quality photograph.
The details of the three street lamps (the smaller one above the door is lit) are a beautiful capture.
The sea with a speed boat making waves, and the hazy strip of land in the horizon are a contrast to the depth and clarity of the images in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing, Chris, it is a beauty !!
fabbs99 (17167) 2013-11-27 22:17
Nice image of Lisbon Lane from a high pov.You have captured the mood of this beautiful place extremely well. Excellent photography.Keep sharing.TFS.
jjcordier (79297) 2013-11-27 23:28
Belle vue plongeante sur cette rue de Lisbonne débouchant sur la mer. Très bon POV et cadrage.
ikeharel (72211) 2013-11-28 5:29
Fantastic POV over the Tajo river from the top of Alfama alley.
Last sunshine of a day, drew people out to the balcony, to enjoy the daily nature's show.
Yet, the shaded area bellow, still had enough light that allow to see its architecture's grandeur.
Fine taken shot,
Cricri (120143) 2013-11-28 10:58
Belle vue plongeante sur la rue animées par les personnes et le coup chance avec les deux dames sur le balcon, belle vue au loin sur la mer dans une douce lumière, belle réalisation
chrislo (4097) 2013-11-28 13:58
Your downward viewpoint gives a wonderful perspective on the shot and let us see lots of interesting details. The whiteness of the facades is cheerfully accentuated by the red roof tiles, whilst the setting sun cast a warm glow over the sea. The people walking (and those watching them) enhance the scene and add a nice human touch to it. A very appealing photo.
Gigidusud (21151) 2013-11-28 15:12
Splendid view from Lisbon with nice light and great framing. Well done!
emka (98854) 2013-11-29 21:07
Hi, Nice view from above. We often see the photos of Alfama, this is original. Splendid perspective, beautiful light.
It happens that camera sees more and only later we see interesting details on the sots. Nice inclusion of people,specially the woman in red on the terrace.
tenretin (2567) 2013-11-30 1:08
Splendid view from Lisbon with a nice light and a great framing. Well done!
macjake (68488) 2013-11-30 1:15
you may not have noticed the 2 women up there but it certainly looks as though they noticed you!
Lisbon looks like such a beautiful city, can't wait to get there some day.
great point of view from up here, love the tiny balconies and the black iron with the white facades.
delpeoples (58348) 2013-12-02 5:44
A beautiful POV, superb choice with the vertical frame and good management of the obvious extremes of light and shade. It looks to me as if you've dodged the white building on the right hand side, which is probably what I would have done too, given that it would have been in heavy shade. It's just I think you were a little heavy handed with it, and suggest perhaps using a lighter brush/percentage. A matter of personal taste I know, and the photo is still a stunner.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-12-02 7:40
Awesome view of this beautiful city. The vertical worked well with the composition. I like those narrow streets of old and old architectures especially without satellite dish but that's progress. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
cornejo (42971) 2013-12-02 11:24
Hi Chris, lovely view of this interesting place, very well composed and captured in this beautiful photograph. An interesting image of a nice place, with good sharpness, depth and quality. An excellent job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
mcmtanyel (23393) 2013-12-04 20:03
This is just the kind of photo that should be published in travel brochures, the beauty of ordinary places. Excellent composition with the implied line all the way to the sea. Congratulations & TFS.
Angshu (56758) 2013-12-11 1:14
The high POV works well with the road vanishing between the houses but giving an essence as to where its heading. The light is beautiful as is visible on the top part of the building, but the exposure has been done well with the lower part in shade. Fine work!
adores (45641) 2013-12-15 16:49
This is Lisbon!A very good view of the street at the end of the afternoon with the people outside enjoying the nice weather and the river in the background. Good composition!
