Here we can see a worker collecting the fleur de sel in the Complex of Salt Ponds from Samouco, situated on the southern bank of the Vasco da Gama Bridge, right opposite Lisbon.
This was once an area where salt was largely collected. Now, this activity has practically disappeared in this area, but since the 90's of the 20th century, when Vasco da Gama Bridge was built (we can see it in background), a Foundation has been created to keep a Nature Reserve here, where some salt ponds are still kept and the many birds species who come to find food in these wet lands are protected and studied. Several donkeys from Miranda can also be found here.

An interesting photograph and note.
The light and the colours are very good.
You have excellent lead lines whilst the figure is strongly placed.
Perhaps a crop of the sky would bring everything closer and follow the rule of thirds more accurately.
Have a lovely day,

Tu as trouvé le point de vue idéal pour nous montrer les étangs de sel.La cabane et l'homme au travail sont bien placés dans l'image et donnent une échelle de grandeur.

Breathtaking wide view, stretching the depth all the way to the horizon and the striking blue sky adds a good visual impact where the placement of the sole fig leads in into the scene. The standout white stuff serves as strong point of focus effectively benefited from the brilliant light. Indeed a graceful shot with technical brilliance. This is wonderfully done picture, Congrats

Today I shall be very brief, as my move is imminent.
The photo is the way I visualize. Everyone has their way of seeing and each photo shows the personal signature of the photographer.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

what first caught my attention is the exposure, its spot on perfect.
the lighting is just right, no overburnt areas, just as it should be - excellent job with that.
and the various tones of blue in the sky is attractive as well.
I didn't even mention the subject yet! Salt Ponds are always an interesting subject to see in person, can't wait till its my turn :)
enjoy your sunday
