Hello friends and colleagues, today I offer another view of the fortified city of Valença, beautiful Portuguese town north of the country, near the border with Spain in the region of Galicia, hope you like it, then some letters on the city.
Valença, commonly known as Valença do Minho, is a Portuguese city located in the district of Viana do Castelo, North and sub-Minho-Lima, with approximately 8,000 people in its core and 14,127 inhabitants (2011) within its municipal .
It is the seat of the homonymous municipality with 117.43 km ² of area and subdivided into 16 parishes (parishes). Bordered on the east by the municipality of Moncao, south to Paredes de Coura, west to Vila Nova de CERVEIRA and northwest and north with Spain (town of Tuy).

This is a nice and well balanced image from this village. I Like the fortification walls with the colored moss. The sky is attractive and gives good colors to the composition.
Best regards ans happy Sunday

molto belle le mura, ben tenute e ben fotografate, le ombre sono molto forti, ma fanno un effetto molto efficace.

Beautifully composed in different horizontal layers.
The foreground shows an impressive defensive stronghold, presumably at the time built to protect against the northern neighbor.
The churches and houses with white facades and red roofs look very beautiful.
Best regards, Paul

Un beau premier plan fortifié de cette ville et une belle perspective sur la ville sous une belle lumière

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue sur la ville. Les fortifications sont belles sous cette superbe lumière et j'aime aussi la grande netteté de l'ensemble.

this is beautiful, all of the layers that the image contains because of the cool stepped land in the left foreground look superb, and make a wonderful foreground to the fine details of the town. The red roofs look great against the blues and greens of the shot too, and then the view off into the mountains. Really nice composition and scene, and excellent light too!
All the best

una cittadina che non conoscevo, ma che si presenta molto graziosa nel suo aspetto.
Una foto composta molto bene nella quale la grande evidenza che hai dato al primo piano con i toni del verde e del giallo ben si contrappone al delicato azzurro del cielo e delle montagne che fanno da sfondo.
Un ottimo lavoro.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

Your recent pictures have very beautiful color effect. I said they like oil painting.
These red roof and white wall buildings are so nicely under the blue sky. It's a picturesque place.

Beautiful scene of the fortified city of Valenca. You have captured this scene under nice lighting conditions and the clarity is superb. Great depth in the shot and the view seems to go on forever into the mountains in the background.

Hola amigo Angel.
Otra panoramica soberbia, de esta interesante poblacion que no conozco, pero que se ve muy bonita y bien situada en el entorno.
Un POV magnifico con los volumenes de la fortaleza en primer plano, los conjunto eclesiasticos sobresalen bien sobre los tejados, precioso cielo y las montañas en la distancia, favorecen el buen DOF de la composicion.
Muy buena la calidad de la imagen, también la nitidez esta ideal.
Muy buen trabajo.
Disfruta un feliz dia.

Gran panorama de Valença presentada con las murallas en el primer plano y la ciudad al fondo con sus torres y techados que se destacan de las lejanas montañas azuladas
Te felicito , saludos
Esto esta muy cerca de Viana Do Castello , donde pase dos dias en un hotel en las murallas con vistas al Miño, imagino

Good sharpness and nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the red roofs, yellow green grass, and the blue sky. Interesting repetition of patterns shapes and angles in the fg. The bg blue mountains make a fine focal point. Well composed too. Tfs!
