And here's my second photo of the Umbrella Sky Project.
For the second year the little town of Águeda was decorated with colourful umbrellas. More than 3000 have been hung with wires, bringing so much colour and also visitors to the town. The ground gets some really nice shadows, too.
They will be there till September.

yes, another beautiful one!
i so hope they do this in future years, i would love to experience what it is like to actually be there, underneath all of these colorful umbrellas.
thank you for these captures, i almost expect to see mary poppins somewhere in the midst of all these umbrellas ~ delightful :)

une mangifique photo, les parapluies forment comme un plafond de fleurs.
Lumière et les couleurs créent de superbes effets.

Excellente prise de vue avec ces ombrelles multicolores semblant s'élever dans le ciel formant un ciel bigarré.
Le résultat est surprenant et la réussite est bien présente à travers cette composition;

Beautiful shot. I love the way the light penetrates the umbrellas. Great exposure.

What a super follow-up shot to your last Ana. I love the way the bright umbrellas almost fill the frame and you have included the small slice of building to give context. A bold and bright sight. Warm regards Rosemary

As melhores do sul da Espanha.

C'est un projet que j'aimerais bien voir dans ma ville. J'avais vu quelque chose de ressemblant en Thaïlande, mais rien d'aussi élaboré et d'aussi songé. C'est magnifique.

This is a nicely observed shot, its split into two parts The composition is a lot more balanced, first glance the eye actually moves to the colourful receding umbrellas but bg building makes the flow work together and each side has a character that connects and complementing each other. The stunning contrasty colors make this a great atmosphere. A well thought out shot, Congrats

Très belle composition originale aux couleurs pimpantes et translucides
Netteté très appréciable

This is a nice idea by the town's leaders and you took a very good photo with well handled light and excellent clarity. The grey wall and the colourful umbrellas are set apart by a diagonal line which gives a good balance to the composition.

another bright and cheerful photo from this festival in this town of Agueda.
this one is much different from your previous, i like both to be honest.
reminds me so much of a similar scene in Las Vegas in Caesers Palace.
uplifting photo :) haha

This is one of those photos that you just can't help but smile when viewed. :) It's bright and colorful, and the pattern display and lines from the umbrella supports make it all the more dynamic in its visual appeal...almost like a spider web of color! I imagine this would also work quite well if they were to completely fill the frame, but I do like how you've composed this to include the corner section of the building to give an idea of it's scope and scale. A very cheerful and agreeable image, thanks for sharing the joy! Have a great day ahead.
All the best,

Another fantastic shot from your lovely colorful series of umbrellas! This one is really great captured with diagonal composition with extremely well executed details and tones. Bravo! Excellent work!
Have a nice weekend!
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-08-17 4:06
very nicely seen and executed shot.just love the colors and the effect the umbrellas are having.beautiful.
Noel_Byrne (30191) 2013-08-17 5:35
Beautiful compliment to your other scene from here, I note that these ones are not clear, so I guess they throw the same type of shadows. To balance that though, the solid color of these makes the street like a rainbow. I love this idea, and I am really glad to have learned of it through your gallery.
All the best

Ola Ana, These umbrellas also look very attractive. Wonderful colours, nicely composed shot on diagonal, perfect sharpness. Amazing picture. Well done!
yquem46 (38750) 2013-08-17 11:09
This one is different and maybe I even like it better
Superb light in transparence through the colorful umbrellas
Bravo, have a nice WE
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-08-18 1:09
And this is a great complement to your previous shot Ana!
I enjoy your upward perspective in combination with well applied close-up.Someone has brilliant idea to use the umbrellas to enliven the urban space in this town.
And you were able to present it with whole their charm they bring in.

Again an amazing image of this "umbrella sky". I like very much the feeling of surrealism created by the hanging umbrellas, and the composition with diagonal lines.
smarcell (19965) 2013-08-20 0:45
I like this one more than the other.
I like the diagonal division of the image.
ourania (43672) 2013-08-23 7:55
you've managed your theme and the space within the frame in a superb way, the diagonal invasion of the umbrellas in the picturesque urban setting is most delightful to watch. I love the way the strong sunlight filters through the umbrellas and affects their colours making them so brilliant. The architecture is very attractive too, the building contrasts the shapes and colours of the umbrellas so effectively. Wonderful work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hi Ana - took a bit of a TE breather, but I'm glad to see you've been continuing on with some great shots. This one in particular is outstanding - I love how the light is brightening the umbrellas over the street giving us a really cool collage of light, shadow, color and lines. Thanks!

That's a funny way to decorate a city, but I love it ! The visual rendering is spectacular and very bright. The sharpness is excellent.
jmdias (62977) 2013-11-16 4:55
imagino que a cidade não receba nenhuma tempestade durante o evento, caso contrártio iriam todas pelos ares,estragando o espetáculo.
muito bonita esta fatia de cores contra as fachadas. uma compo muito bem feita. imagino que os fabricantes chineses devem ter gostado do evento até mais que os visitantes. haha.
