And here's my last post of the Umbrella Sky Project this year, just to show you a different view of this street.
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 city. The ground gets some really nice shadows, too.
They will be there till September.

Still charming ~ love them all. How nice it would be to have a cup of tea or a glass of wine under this sky of umbrellas, it must feel quite magical :)
Thanks for them all, Ana ~ what a treat.

In some Mexican villages the main street is covered with carpets of flowers during certain events, but I had never seen something like this. It is nice and colorful.

Great picture,Wonderful colour and interesting shadows.

Encore une magnifique photo de cette "rue aux ombrelles" avec une belle exploitation de la lumière qui les "transperce".

avevo già visto una cosa del genere, ma la tua inquadratura è proprio bella, si riesce a vedere tutta la sfilata di ombrelli colorati e il risultato è splendido.

Wonderful composition of colors you framed. The clarity, colors and lights very well managed. Well done.!!

Nice scene, good light, good pov.
I suppose this place is a great source of inspiration for good photos

This is an amazing street with the 'roof' of colourful umbrellas. The dappled sunlight on the street is lovely. A fabulous image with great sharpness and light management.
Kind Regards, Ann

De plus en plus beau ce thème sur les parapluies au Portugal, quelles belles couleurs cela donne et quelles belles ombres ils produisent au sol. Une idée géniale de la municipalité et quel bonheur pour les photographes.

More fantastic umbrellas. This is really an original idea and it must have been exciting to watch and to find new angles for photos. Your management of the light is excellent.
Graal (103038) 2013-08-20 8:22
unusual street and umbrellas. Good captured place. Theme is very attractive and well done. I like it.
Have a nice evening.
Romano46 (18472) 2013-08-20 10:05
questa avente a soggetto la distesa di ombrelli mi piace più della precedente perchè hai saputo valorizzare molto bene questa copertura così originale e ricca di infiniti colori.
Anche l'altra, ad essere sinceri era bella nella sua essenzialità, ma nella sua stilizzazione non rendeva l'idea della festa che si svolge nel borgo.
Bravissima in ogni caso per entrambe le foto ( e forse ne vedremo delle altre..).
Ciao e buona serata

A great addition to the series, as now we see the street level as you would if you walked down the street, and again the effect of this installation is superb! Its like something from a bright and colorful dream. Perfectly realized shot with a perfect composition. All the best
Waylim (25436) 2013-08-20 15:22
Wow, I want to walk under these umbrella. Amazing there is no people there except the two. Fantstic display of color and it is like public art. Excellent photo quality and composition.
abmdsudi (58260) 2013-08-21 10:50
Looks like a great place to stroll as the splash of colourful umbrellas have provided a cool shades there and doubtless its a visually stunning and passionate warmth of colours all round. Love how you composed this with the colors stretching out beyond the frame, a beautiful rather rustic alley and a lovely photograph to remember it by and it deserved a photo!!! Congrats

This is another installment of the beautiful, colorful Umbrella Sky, rendered most skillfully. As I was looking at it, I wondered how it would look if everything but the umbrellas were B&W. So, I took a crude crack at it and will upload it to the workshop. I'm interested to read what you think.
emka (107755) 2013-08-21 23:41
Ola Ana, This close up of all the colourful umbrella looks really amazing. They had fantastic idea of such a decorations. Haven for photographers, pleasant shadow in hot day.
ikeharel (79161) 2013-08-22 2:01
A cheering view of the multi-colors umbrellas cover and shaded the street.
Clarity and DOF along with the light management colminate to a fine photo about.
Nicou (152026) 2013-08-22 6:35
géniale compo et vue sueprbe cette rue toutes couverte par les ombrelles de couleurs quel effet et captage quel pastel c'est merveilleux
Bravo et amitié
macjake (73059) 2013-08-22 10:49
yes, we will never get tired of seeing such photos, post an many as you want!
from this composition it looks as if the umbrellas continue for infinity. and obviously because of the compo i like how they get larger and wider at the top.
Looking at it, I wonder how it would be during the Blue Hour!
another fine post for TE
adramad (49962) 2013-08-22 15:02
Una composicion maravillosa, con esta original y atractiva decoracion de la calle, que tambien da un cromatismo espectacular.
La compensacion de luces y sombras esta genial.
Bello trabajo, me encanta.
Buena luminosidad y nitidez.
Pasa una buena noche.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Quel idée magnifique de ces parapluies colorées qui coiffe la rue, c'est superbe et très beau
mkamionka (40095) 2013-08-23 7:23
the other one was my favourite but this one is very interesting too. I like how the umbrellas are crowded here. Very interesting and unexpected effect on a street. The umbrellas obviously add a lot of color here.
Have a great weekend,
Urs (14082) 2013-08-23 18:25
Excellent idea to photograph the sky with all these colourful umbrellas. I remember there was once a movie decades ago about the umbrellas in Cherbourg. Good photo job
aloyho (6798) 2013-08-23 22:31
A lovely composition and you have rightly chosen the strong contrast to bring out the colours and the sense of depth along the alley. A very well calculated use of space to create an interesting and impressive visual impact.Brilliant shot!!!
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-08-24 11:50
Awesome capture of those umbrellas! So, where's Mary Poppins? Love the colors. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
gervaso (16817) 2013-08-26 9:05
Muito interessante e bonita a decoração desta rua com as sombrinhas coloridas dando uma beleza especial à foto! Luz muito bem capturada, e excelente contraste com a rua com cores mais suaves. Beleza de trabalho!
jemaflor (103639) 2013-08-28 10:38
Original street with all these colored umbrellas, well taken, and good effect with this nice light, tfs.

Really an incredible idea in this city
An excellent short series on this topic
Bravo, well done
ourania (51103) 2013-09-05 13:01
I had to go back and write you about this beautiful picture, the last one from your marvellous Umbrella Sky Project series. It's a very special image with which you've managed to present in a superb way the installation and its effect on the look and atmosphere of the urban scenery. Depth and sharpness are so effective and the colourful graphical "ceiling" contrasts with and complements the shady and plain setting below. There's mesmerising vibrancy and sense of movement as if the deliciously coloured umbrellas were flying over the streets of the town. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-09-05 21:09
Nice and coloful picture. Good light and interesting subject.
ChrisJ (118895) 2013-09-12 4:06
Amazing repetition of the colourful umbrellas with wonderful sharpness and good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective afforded by the street. The people add scale and context. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes, which add graphism. Tfs!
fredon (5052) 2013-09-14 4:01
Great insolite street view. A surrealistic atmosphere. But where is Rene Magritte ? ;-)
Valensiaa (244) 2013-10-24 20:03
Wonderful presentation of event. I love the way you showed crazy interesting perspective created by umbrellas. I'm fan of sun not big fan of shadows ha ha so this photo scares me a little bit lol.
Good job indeed very strong shot.
