eye catching colors and good diagonals is my first impression when is see this shot. I have never been to Costa Nova but i can see it is a place worth to visit. Perhaps a tighter crop to avoid the right corner at the bottom would have improved the shot but i like the overall impression. Good work and Tfs !
Have a nice evening.

Aí está outra que ainda não tenho:)!
Normalmente não gosto das igrejas modernas, mas esta até está bonita. Não me lembro de ter visto outra foto dela por aqui. Gosto do pov e das cores saturadas!

molto belli i colori della scena con questa bella prospettiva su piazza e chiesa.
Ottima la luce.

Instead of taking the picture from on the road leading to the church you decided well to do this from on a POV more to the right of it.
This offers us the several diagonal lines that make a nice foreground for the view of the church.
Wonderful blue sky on the background.
Best regards, Paul

Superb crystal clear image where you present us this curious architecture. In Portugal the skies are unique!
Have a good WE!

Belle lumière qui "dope" les couleurs et bon cadrage de cette église à l'architecture qui semble plus moderne que ne l'indique la date de construction.
emka (81636) 2011-09-01 23:51
it is interesting architecture. Very simple lines, similar to the traditional Portugal style, but simpler and without usual yellow colours. Well chosen POV, careful cut. The colours are superb against the blue sky.
dta (68734) 2011-09-01 23:56
Hola Filipe ,

abmdsudi (44652) 2011-09-02 3:48
Great observation and interesting how your brought that small church to life, subtle in light and colors. The luminouscity is so well rendered with lots of other fine details so well composed, but the richness in colors really makes this image. Great capture, very well done and good qualty image. Congrats
timecapturer (49288) 2011-09-02 4:57
this is such a pristine and distinct composition. The detailing, clarity and colours are outstanding as are the diagonals that just increase the effect so dramatically. Exceptional!
Wishing you a peaceful weekend - Brian.

Oi o Filipe,
a luz e as cores são muito atraentes e atraentes. A composição é habilmente feito com caminhos e gramados. A exposição é efetivamente controlada. Uma imagem agradável, interessante e de alta qualidade. Bravo. Dia bom.
axiotea (21649) 2011-09-03 13:01
A dynamic FG provided by the diagonal lines, leading the eye to the modern church which stands out perfectly against the deep blue sky. It's very luminous and to me, it is well framed.
ricardomattos (4707) 2011-09-03 18:36
Uma beleza de foto esta.Gostei da profundidade das cores além da beleza deste lugar, é claro.Excelente nitidez e enquadramento.
Longroute (19396) 2011-09-04 4:04
Quite an interesting modern churches. They managed to create an harmonious and fine design - much different from the modern churches here which resemble military bunkers! (:-)
I like how you exploited the two walkways, the red one and the grey one, to create a fine depth and perspective, and as often in your photos the colour palette is so vivid and intense and is the main attraction of the photo. A well balanced composition with everything in the proper position.
In October I'll spend three days in Porto. Do you think it's worthwhile to go to Costa Nova? Are there other interesting places to see and photograph near Porto that you can recommend to me?
vasilpro (40997) 2011-09-04 13:15
Wonderful composition, beautiful church with interesting architecture, excellent POV, lovely light and vivid colors, very good contrast, TFS!

papagolf21 (87280) 2011-09-07 13:56
Bonsoir, cher Filipe,
Il existe des architectes visionnaires ! la preuve en est donnée à travers cette église qui étonne pas sa modernité générale.
Une excellente prise de vue jouant avec la géométrie.
shevchenko (18696) 2011-09-08 3:03
Good frame to the church with include the surrounding environment, I like this beautiful local church, good perspective effect, attractive colourful view in a sunny day, distinct color, good sharpness, well done.

the diagonal lines in the foreground create interesting shapes in different colors,and make the picture to seems even more beautiful,
well captured and composed!
clic (15348) 2011-09-08 15:58
Many thanks for your kind words Filipe.
I see a stryking contrast opposing the perfectly-exposed light tones of this modern church to the boldly-saturated three primary colors that enlight so beautifully this magnificent take!
bukitgolfb301 (36668) 2011-09-10 2:37
Hi Ola my dear Filipe

This is so sharp and fresh image, incredible!
How deep the blue sky color?!?
Perfect framwork, composition and reasonable allocation are marvelous as usual.

UlfE (14641) 2011-09-11 12:29
Brillant composition with many exciting diagonal lines and well-chosen POV. The church tower is perfectly postioned and the photo is really crisp. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!
Charo (51210) 2011-09-12 17:32
Me gusta el lugar donde está ubicada esta moderna iglesia, en un espacio abierto y amplio.
Magnífico el contraste con ese intenso cielo azul y excelentes detalles y control de la luz.
josepmarin (57833) 2011-09-21 0:49
el cielo está muy bien polarizado y da una gran potencia cromática a toda la imagen, que tiene unos bellos colores y una excelente gestión de la exposición.
Me gusta la belleza arquitectónica de esta iglesia, y la geometría de los elementos que la rodean, que dibujan unas elegantes diagonales en el primer plano, con una bonita perspectiva.
La estructura de la composición es magnífica, has obtenido un gran resultado.
Un bello trabajo, amigo.
subhendu_bagchi (25907) 2011-09-21 9:47
beautiful perspective. You got the frame very well using a nice POV. The diagonal is used nicely. Like the light management and the vibrant colours. Sharpness is superb. Great shot. Tfs.
paninho (2931) 2011-09-22 10:05
Ola caro Filipe!
Realmente uma igreja fora do comum que justifica só por si esta fotografia.
O azul do céu ficou uma maravilha, é o que mais gosto na tua foto. Bons contrastes também.
Um POV mais à esquerda (para aproveitar a perspetiva proporcionada pelo caminho que leva à igreja) talvez tivesse dado mais impacto à imagem.
ricochet (9696) 2011-09-22 13:19
Superb composition well balanced, very nice vivid colors, sun well oriented and splendid architecture.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-09-22 17:05
Very generous and a colorful foreground provides a very nice setting for this church. Stunningly saturated colors are amazing, especially the blueness of the sky. The white church stands together with its tower is immersed in the tranquility. Well balanced composition is very pleasant to the eyes. It is a wonderful image.
With my very best wishes,
Have a great Friday, Filipe
macjake (57712) 2011-09-23 0:50
its amazing how that white is so bright against the blue skyline.
and the run of green along the bottom portion is great too.
excellent overall quality and clarity of the scene.
TopGeo (38204) 2011-09-23 11:46
Great scene,Filipe! great frame with low POV, very good framing and composition! Excellent perspective! Great light management, excellent choice of points a nice foreground for the view of the church. and moment of time! with great tones and colours!
nikkitta (15228) 2011-09-23 14:01
Modern church are not interesting but this one with the diagonal lines the sharpness and contrast against the sky ( so very blue) is very beautiful
Greetings from Argentina
danos (88197) 2011-09-24 9:30
nice the panoramic view of Costa Nova's church,with its specific architectural style as its bell tower too, to dominates the image.I like the vivid colours, the contrast of them,as the brilliant light of the scene bringing out the details of it.
Have a good Sunday,Danos
siolaw (38290) 2011-09-25 1:26
The strong lines of the foreground give a nice graphical touch to the image and the intense colours looks great.
Sharp and clean work!
DjoleEric (0) 2011-09-26 7:12
Excellent angle shot, contrast and composition.
And who show good color and sharpness.
Can you tell me which photoshop you through the process the image, so called MSM program through which put the ram, add color, and more ...
Have a nice day and pleasant meeting.
rodgerg (55767) 2011-09-26 9:51
The large FG give a great depht to this image with the large prospect open to the two edifice which arise in the superb blue of the sky. Good managment of light with natural color nad white color well exposed.
Have a nice evening,
sacimar (25977) 2011-09-27 9:32
this is a beautiful image, I like the composition with this interesting building, the tones and colors, especially of the sky are excellent, well done,
fds (8580) 2011-09-28 8:58
fantastic image with fantastic vived colors
i love the colors and this church is very very nice
great composition of the colors my friend
Graal (98608) 2011-09-28 23:39
beautiful presentation and place. I like the architecture of church in modern style. Great blue sky and contrast. Photo very well done.
Have a nice day.
mkamionka (31145) 2011-09-29 5:40
fantastic well saturated colors make it really eye catching.
I like the dark blue sky. The modern architecture in Portugal seems equally interesting as the old one. Very picturesque scene well collected. I like the pink footpath diagonally cutting the foreground.
pierrefonds (58229) 2011-09-29 19:05
The distance between the pink path and the church is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the church of Our Lay of Health. The quality of the light is embellishing the colors. Have a nice day.
bayno (18342) 2011-09-30 8:22
Hi Filipe, beautiful graphics and perspective, vivid images and an exceptional sharpness, sincere congratulations for your gallery, Have a nice WE, Valter
Fis2 (87247) 2011-09-30 12:16
A very interesting church.
Curious tower.Good frame, sharpness and superb colors.
Have a nice weekend
wolf38 (31282) 2011-10-02 1:24
Hello Filipe. In fact, a strong photo. It works perfectly. The color is very pronounced. These fine light and skillful composition. TOP! Rgds, Wolfgang.
Waylim (25366) 2011-10-09 0:15
Beautiful sunny day with rich blue sky. the light seem strong but you manage beautifully with great clarity and dettails. Really eye catching color with deep tone and nicely saturated. I usually don't like people in my photo, but here a couple of them would be nice to give this place some liveliness.
pablominto (53744) 2011-10-10 23:44
An interesting piece of architecture, a design that leads me to think it is more resent than it actually is!
The scenery is characterized by the rich vivid colours and fine details, and a well balanced composition...
jmdias (56931) 2011-11-11 16:20
linda imagea da igreja, gosto do contraste de cores e do ponto de vista que usa bem as linhas do chão. linda trabalho
Angshu (56180) 2011-11-14 1:39
The hexagonal shape indeed is very unique! You've created a good perspective with the paths. The layers of green & red & asphalt grey works well. Fine contrast of the church & the bell tower against the polarized sky. Good work!
kiks (11749) 2012-04-03 9:41
Very peculiar architecture this church. Very intersting. I like the weel saturated colors contrasting well with the white building.
Romano46 (18466) 2013-04-02 10:36
tu proponi poche foto ma ciascuna di esse è una vera meraviglia.
Tra le tue ho scelto questa perchè a mio parere è perfetta sia nella composizionme sia per i colori, che pur essendo molto saturi, risultano gradevolissimi per la forte luminosità diffusa in tutta l'immagine.
Il tutto unito ad una nitidezza eccezionaleche un giusto contrasto ha ulteriormente evidenziato.
E' la classica foto che tutti vorrebbero aver fatto.
Ciao e buona serata
