This is a classical view with the bronze fountain of Rossio square, a very popular place of the city. The Rossio has been a meeting place for people of Lisbon for centuries. Some of the cafés and shops of the square date from the 18th century, like the Café Nicola, where poet Manuel Maria Barbosa du Bocage used to meet friends. Other traditional shops include the Pastelaria Suíça and the Ginjinha, where the typical Lisbon spirit (Ginjinha) can be tasted. The building of the Maria II Theatre and the Public Gardens to the north of the square only made the area more attended by Lisbon high society in the 19th century. Nowadays it is constantly populated by Lisboners and tourists.

une vue intéressante avec la fontaine en avant-plan et les très belles façades des maisons en arrière.

A pleasant night time composition, well exposed and with good sharpness. The splendid fountain makes a good frame for the background architecture. I like the light and colours and the attractive atmosphere.

Hi Daniel. Enchanting time of the day when lights shine in shop windows and apartments. Masterful exposure allowing us to enjoy all the textures and details near and far. Regards. Klaudio.

Un très bel endroit. J'aime le point de vue incluant les pavés qui donnent l'impression de vagues qui poussent les regards vers la fontaine et les belles maisons à l'arrière plan.

le luci artificiali si iniziano a vedere, mentre la piazza è anora visibile dalla luce del giorno, un bel mix che ci offre una panoramica accattivante e di bell'effetto.

definitely my favourite place in Lisbon.Bustling and lively,but having its own charm.
I like your presentation here in evening light giving more depth and unique mood to the scene.

Bon cadrage de cette fontaine et des immeubles de la place. Le ciel est peut-être un peu surexposé mais l'ensemble forme une image très plaisante.

Yes, it's a typical square in Europe. But under the soft blue sky, it's beautiful. I like it.
mkamionka (36747) 2013-08-05 7:01
I like very much this square. I could stay there forever trying to take photos at different light conditions. I think I may have a similar picture from the same POV as well. Let me find it...
a very different atmosphere!
So obviously I like the composition :)
very well done,

A lively city square in wonderful composition that brings all its features to life, great control of highlights and lots of colors to enjoy. But i love the play of artificial light and its perfectly exposed with good contrast and the overall effect is very pleasing to the eye. The fountain hold the focus nicely there. Well done, Congrats.

I love your photos from Lisboa and I picked this one because I find it rather unique, not shooting towards the theatre and not trying to take the whole of the square, just a piece of it... I like the sky as well...
