No, but could be !
I take a boat from Belem to Cacilhas to enjoy the sunset and to dinner in front of Tagus River.
These people had found me taking pictures and they had a problem... One of them, a lovely girl has a camera like mine but she didn't took pictures with good quality. We did a small workshop, I shared my tripod with her. She had started to work in manual mode but this was only the first lesson.
After the small meeting they continued to enjoy the portuguese sunset, doing experiences. I made a picture of them from far away... 240 mm...
Enjoy the sunset and the moment !

What a lovely shot! Colours and siloettes make it a winner...
brandstaetter (15915) 2008-10-06 22:36
good one! Not only the colours, also the shape of the silhouettes are pleasing. Also the definiton is high, I nearly can see the pics on their LCD´s..:)
bracasha75 (24585) 2008-10-06 22:56
God morning Aires
Beautiful atmospere and just like from another world
Scene is unbelivable great
Burberry1 (6041) 2008-10-06 23:38
A very good morning Aires:-)
This is a great and very well thought image full of wonderful mood and great tonality.
Looks really a very fascinating meeting in the great sourounding of Portugese town.
I just love it and would like to join such meeting one day:)
jimkilgallon (0) 2008-10-06 23:42
Great shot with sublime colours, surely the detail from the back-screens of them cameras are the fascinating feature here. Enjoyable scene.
TopGeo (38216) 2008-10-06 23:47
Hi Aires! The meeting became a moment where the colours sunset gave their own representation. Artistic and a lot of interesting photographic document that would want all. Good moment and idea
emka (87444) 2008-10-06 23:56
Very fine, funny shot. I like the colours of the sunset and silhouettes of thge young people. Lovely photo
mikolaj_kawa (0) 2008-10-07 0:28
Ola Aires! Nice scene. Amazing light and shadow. Very interesting colours. Original picture. Saude!
Floydian (30970) 2008-10-07 1:02
Best part....that bridge and boat that is leaving...great details and balance to the main part of the picture which are those people on the left. Although he is a bit soft on the sharpness, i like how you composed all this. It's not just another sunset, but all elements all there for making it something different....very nice.
papagolf21 (91384) 2008-10-07 1:54
Bonjour, mon ami Aires,
Encore une très belle composition présentée ici. Une photographie digne d'un professionnel. Vous avez fait très fort dans cette réalisation.
Inutile d'ajouter beaucoup de mots, le résultat est excellent !
Un grand bravo !
riclopes (35577) 2008-10-07 1:59
Está espectacular, Aires. Gosto bem do efeito do zoom aqui. Não só do jogo de silhuetas que apanhaste mas também das cores fantásticas que enchem o fundo. A ponte ficou muito bem encaixada lá atrás e gosto do pormenor dos dois LCDs brilhantes na mão das meninas da esquerda em posições simétricas.
argycon (2769) 2008-10-07 2:00
Fantastic piece of work.
zeynepe (0) 2008-10-07 2:23
The silhouettes with the fantastic sunset colors look fantastic.
And your note is also a proof that you are so friendly person :)
I wonder what it would be if you increased the ISO a little bit higher (800?)
Congrats and have a nice day,
tober (8797) 2008-10-07 2:28
Hello Aires, that's one of the very unusual photos of Lisbon, which you can only take by using one of the ferries sailing over Rio Tejo. The silhouettes in front of the "Ponte 25 Abril" with a beautiful background of sunset colours are just amazing. Well done ! Tolga
ktanska (26061) 2008-10-07 2:40
This time that bridge is closer and looks really massive, just small part visible.
Red sky and blue river give intense colours. Those silhouettes are have perfect positions. And small lights on camera displays add final touch. One of your best I think.
CMJC (4034) 2008-10-07 2:49
très sympatique contre jour avec le coin photo et le coin bateau et la belle symétrie des deux filles qui photographient le paysage avec leurs viseurs d'APN visibles!
stefanocer (10642) 2008-10-07 3:04
It's a great shot Aires , wonderful light condition and management , colours are superb and composition too , even the displays of cameras are visible , many many compliments.
trekks (14348) 2008-10-07 3:49
Perhaps if they join TE, it could be, no? Did you give them TE's url?
I could not help but open this thumbnail, it just registers very strongly to my eyes with the saturated sunset color tone. I like the composition here, really meaning the composition with the bridge running across, the lighted boat, the lights from the cameras that 2 girls were screening, the a couple still shooting, all very well posed for this crucial moment to make your capture a great harvest.
No other way except a silhouette, nothing I will change, except maybe focus sharpness?
Excellent work. tfs
delkoo (68) 2008-10-07 3:51
You have taken advantage of that light and colors of the sunset ,to achieve this beautiful shot with nice silhouettes of photographers and bridge.
Gerrit (51130) 2008-10-07 3:53
I could imagine that you made an enscenation of this wonderful grouping.
The colors are outstanding, but the real topic is the clear visibility of the two screens of the pocket camera's.
Morac (27723) 2008-10-07 4:36
Belle composition bien coloriée.
J'aime ce travail d'ombres chinoises sur fond de ce superbe ciel rouge.
francio64 (39744) 2008-10-07 5:18
davvero spettacolare questa foto.
Tre linee di colore differenti, per un risultato strabiliante, valorizzato dall'effetto silhouette delle ragazze fotografe.
Una cosa simpatica è il poter vedere i display delle loro fotocamere, illuminati.
Molto bello anche il ponte che sembra una croce.
Very well done!
siamesa (27841) 2008-10-07 5:21
Bom dia Aires,
Adorei a foto com essas cores espetaculares e as silhuetas das pessoas bem dimensionadas e em um momento bem descontraído. Excelente captura.
Um boa dia para você
Docarmo (9639) 2008-10-07 8:32
Que imagem estupenda! Ficou parecendo um negativo de um filme colorido (muito melhor, claro), como se fosse um louvor à fotografia. Muitíssimo bem realizada!!! As cores estão fantásticas, as silhuetas dos jovens não podiam ser melhores, estão cheias de vida e em poses muito expressivas.
PARABÉNS em maiúsculas, vai para as minhas favoritas.
sacavem (18620) 2008-10-07 9:05
Ora, ora olhaste e pensaste vou fazer aqui um WS :::)com as meninas.Tás um Pro.
Grande composição e POV. Excelente cor com uma fantástica "iluminação" principalmente nos visores das maquinas é um pormenor que gostei muito de ver e contraste.
AnaRita (1741) 2008-10-07 9:56
Olá Aires, realmente podia ser um encontro de "trekkers" e quem sabe se essa rapariga que ajudas-te não acaba por se registar aqui agora que aprendeu a trabalhar em modo manual?
As cores do pôr-do-sol estão maravilhosas, a definição está perfeita com todos os contornos das sombras visíveis e gosto da inclusão dos guindastes lá ao fundo.
Uma fotografia de mestre, parabéns e obrigada por partilhares,
ifanik (21679) 2008-10-07 9:57
Hi Aires and thank you for your critigue
Your galery is great!!!
And this photo is beautiful
Nice colours and composition
gezimania (6166) 2008-10-07 10:03
It's extremely striking shot, just the two silhouettes at the left may not be superposed with the constructions at the back, but it's really eye catching at first sight,
patdeph (35748) 2008-10-07 11:43
this is very original and superb!I love the silhouettes of the photographers on the great colours of the sunset,and I love the graphism of the bridge!Superbly done and magnificent!
lucasgalodoido (21442) 2008-10-07 11:45
bom, que era um momento bom pra fotos era, e fizeram dele um encotro. Gostei do brilho do visor das câmeras, ficou interessante.
Parabéns e Abraço
Ber (8233) 2008-10-07 12:09
Very fine, funny shot. Superb composition. The silhouettes with the fantastic sunset colors look fantastic.
danos (91070) 2008-10-07 12:38
nice the silhouettes of the gather people, to take a shot of the sunset colors.I like the 'burn' sky as the placement of the bridge in a good point in the scene.The management of the lights and the colors are great.Well done.
mikeo (12129) 2008-10-07 13:52
What a scene:) Lovely colours in the background, bridge, ship...superb! All these shadows of people give a kind of movement effect - I really like it!
Greetings from Poland,
Scharan (14144) 2008-10-07 13:53
Uma foto bem interessante e muito bonita.
Amei o tratamento da imagem, as silhuetas, as cores, tudo meio mágico, meus parabéns!
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2008-10-07 15:22
Desde luego, los colores y los contrastes te han quedado buenísimos!!!! Las siletas, muy sugerentes, también te han quedado grandes!
zeca (19762) 2008-10-07 19:32
Que linda foto, Aires! Os detalhes são muito interessantes e bonitos! Dá para ver até os pequenos monitores das câmeras snapshot e ainda tem um grafismo da ponte. Cores lindas! Uma ótima composição, muito bonita!
UnTrained (0) 2008-10-07 22:19
sharing our knowledge is a nice story for that warm capture. The colours of sunset presented with life by their silhouettes is a good idea and well done with that background of the river, bridge and ship.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
aadilj (18102) 2008-10-08 0:56
Those colorus are so intensel warm, that they do not remain just warm...they become hot! I love the way you have compsoed this beautiful shot and the textures. great framing as always Aires
rigoletto (34279) 2008-10-08 1:50
This one is great!
Such beautiful colors of the sunset, and a very creative cadrage with superb silhouettes. And i can almost see what the girls have in their cameras. A photo full of delicate details. My compliments!
mauro61 (52855) 2008-10-08 2:42
tre fasce di colore che rendono lo scatto fantastico.
Il controluce delle persone presenti da dinamicità alla foto,bravissimo
Budapestman (82620) 2008-10-08 2:57
What is fantastic mood. The wonderful colours add very much to the mood of the picture. Very much like the spectacular silhouettes and the timing superb. But mostly the picture composing likes, brilliant! Congratulations.
carper (96) 2008-10-08 3:02
a very good shot of this meeting here Aires,
the contours are great and I like the little details as the lcd screems of the camera's very good photojob, a good one, have a nice evening.
npecanhuk (70782) 2008-10-08 3:03
A ponte 25 de Abril é uma maravilha da engenharia e fica bela em qualquer fotografia!
Porém, devo ressaltar aqui o seu ponto de vista, muito bem escolhido e a composição, acrescentando pessoas descontraídas, o porto e o navio (iluminados) ao fundo! Além do mais, o momento da tomada foi excelente com esse colorido incrível do céu!
Parabéns por mais uma bela imagem!
jlynx (12645) 2008-10-08 5:04
Rather not the meeting... Girls like always and like worldwide move nowhere without their own telephone. Always ready to the conversation or always during the conversation.
Youths chose something nearer to Your heart. The excellent reporter shot. Strange sky, fantastic mood.
Best regards from Poznan,
jurek1951 (42196) 2008-10-08 6:10
What a magnificant view. Very good capture of this landscape with good composition and amazingly colours.
jusninasirun (17162) 2008-10-08 6:55
Hi Aires. It could be nice to gang up TE members under the bridge watching the sunset like this one. Nice silhouette with clear image of someone taking picture against the beautiful red sky. The ship is well balanced in the frame. well done and best regards. Jusni
Emile (20352) 2008-10-08 10:26
Excellent shot taken during the sunset with the silhouette of the group of photographers and the bridge with the ship. Nice sky colors and very good POV. Well done.
elendim (69) 2008-10-08 10:36
Perfect shot with silhouettes
and lovely colors!
Great notes ;)
alvaraalto (6177) 2008-10-08 11:26
Excellent artistic composition. Everything is perfect: The silhouettes of the future TE-member, the sunset-colours, the bridge, the boat.... This must be added to the favourites.
Tue (29854) 2008-10-08 14:04
The partly cloudy sky of the evening is, with its warm colours, a beautiful background for the silhouettes of the bridge, the ship, the cranes and of course the people in the foreground. Also a very nice detail are the small lit screens of their cameras. Very well captured and thanks for sharing!
Estelle (2766) 2008-10-08 14:27
Lovely sunset with the black shades of the people
It looks like a lovely evening
robiuk (10807) 2008-10-08 15:15
When I saw this photo early this morning, I instantly knew
it's gonna please many TE members! But I had to rush to work
and had no time to write a critique.
You were lucky to have the scene set up for you for
perfect silhouetting, and by increasing the saturation you
made a dramatic and colourful settings for a stunning
Atousa (7131) 2008-10-08 20:34
Very nice graphic in the shot..you captured this beautiful atmospheric scene so well n the colors are very attractive..thanks for sharing.
phwall (6785) 2008-10-08 21:32
What a fun shot, these kids look like they are really enjoying themselves. Now, about my free lesson.
Beautiful tone and mood you've captured. I like the lights on the tanker coming towards us
The colour and the silhouettes of the kids look wonderful.
Amazing result, superb capture.
Cricri (112009) 2008-10-08 21:44
Belle silhouettes sur ce ciel magique, c'est coloré a souhait et la scéne est bien sympathique
excellent cadrage et compo
John_F_Kennedy (43505) 2008-10-09 0:26
Great colour tones! Amazing atmosphere with a nice story. Beautiful image. Very well done
Didi (59144) 2008-10-09 9:30
Well done for this great composition with the sky on fire.
The scene on the foreground is very interesting.
Your frame style is very good.
leo61 (0) 2008-10-09 10:46
Great composition with all these sillhouettes and the ship in the distance.The red and orange tones in the sky are amazing.The photographers monitors are fine details.
Very well seen and managed.
Anna-- (7791) 2008-10-09 10:59
really a funny capture!
Nice scene and great colors of sunset
Have a nice evening
Stepan (27210) 2008-10-09 11:59
The zoom creates a great non-perspective with the huge bridge looking almost like a painted background. And the contrast between warm and cold colors is simply one of the best I've seen for while. And you managed that very very well.
FPSintra (47) 2008-10-09 15:58
Paro uns segundos para deixar uma nota sobre uma fotografia que quase diria uma perfeita montagem... ao ponto da pose e perfil da rapariga (depreendo a aprendiz!) de cabelo apanhado.
Muito interessante. Parabéns
kiks (11785) 2008-10-10 0:38
HEllo Aires, i love the mood of this image. It feels like friendship and enjoying the amazing colors of sunset. The scene sillouets are beautiful.
salvator (19102) 2008-10-10 1:57
The colors of the setting sun look wonderful. The four wonderfully defined silouettes against the sunset background look absolutely wonderful.
I wish you an excellent weekend. Best regards. Salvator.
clio (27961) 2008-10-11 2:28
It is an extraordinary photo. I like very much photographed people who photograph, they are all isolated in their world. Here, we would really imagine to be in a theater (shadow theater!) with this supernatural sunset as set which mixs in the industrial landscape of the port.
A great shot, parabéns!
Bluejeans (64251) 2008-10-13 13:02
Oi amigo ,
Já não a muito para falar :) , a foto está magnifica com umas cores bem quentes as silhuetas ficaram fantásticas , é uma bela cena , tiveste bom olho , parabéns!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
burGu (4840) 2008-10-13 13:07
a possible TE meeting in view of a fascinating sunset... Too bad that it is a "missed" TE moment, we will never be able to see other ones shots :(
Transition of colors is amazing; from yellow to blue; there is a very gentle and attractive transition.
Four silhouettes and they all got lost in the moment, trying to "freeze" the beauty of sunset, just like you. My compliments,
robertosalguero (246) 2008-10-14 22:27
Soft, colourful and beautiful! An excellent composition showing a beautiful sunset and fine silhouettes of people. The bridge is an excellent focal point and frames the people very nicely. Nice work Aires :-)
adores (41618) 2008-10-15 18:55
Uma óptima cena, com umas cores fantásticas. Gosto muito das silhuetas e dos visores das cameras. Pelos vistos, deste as lições mas ainda conseguiste umas fotos:)!
axiotea (21649) 2008-10-16 5:25
A well timed capture of the silhouetted persons with their posture adding lots of dynamism to the image! The colors and contrast are appealing and I like to see the yacht leaving in the distance.
Greetings from Thailand
Waylim (25430) 2008-10-19 0:05
I love the silhoutte of the people enjoying this wonderfully sunset. There seem to be some noise, but the beautiful color and light is just beautiful. Good compositon and atmosphere and mood is wonderful. It's a very enjoyable and beautiful image. Thanks for visiting and your very nice comment on my post. I really enoy your gallery full of beautiful images.
Vato_Law (12720) 2008-10-19 1:31
Bom dia Aires.
Vejo que tambem aprecias um belo jantar junto ao Tejo com aquela vista linda sobre Lisboa.
Pelo que mostras na foto pareces estar proximo do 'atira-te ao rio' um restaurante em Cacilhas que é ideal para umas boas fotos Lisboa especialmente ao anoitecer, quando as luzes já estão ligadas e se vê o casario a descer pelas colinas rodeado de luzes.
Esta foto está muito bonita, estes fotografos entretidos uns a fotografar a vista e outros a fazerem retratos são essenciais para o impacto da mesma. Mas tambem o barco que parte ao fundo e a silhueta da ponte estão espectaculares especialmente porque estão enquadrados por aquelas cores lindas no céu causadas pelo por do sol.
Esta é uma daquelas que também gostava de fazer um dia.
