The greenery at FGn very wet looks on reduced scale like the Okavango delta in Botswana, LOL !
Nice contrast with sky exposed with the tobacco filter
Have a nice evening

The length of the field is giving depth to the composition. The angle of shhoting is giving me a general view of the Barreiro city. Using a graudal tobacco filter has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

With your frequent use of tobacco filter your photo is easily recognised. Interesting effect achieved. Nice panorama of the city behind the marsh area.

Displayed beautifully in this exquisite and extraordinary vision of a perfect frame.
Resolution and color using beautiful sky.
Have a nice day.
Royaldevon (21379) 2012-05-03 1:05
You have created a shot which resembles a painting rather than a photograph. I think it is the soft colours, especially the tobacco filtered sky.
You have a fine thirds composition, and fine, vein-like leads towards the city. There is a wonderful sense of space and depth.
Have a lovely day, my friend,
abmdsudi (32471) 2012-05-03 1:35
Another creative shot and I still can smell tobacco filling the air. Beautiful exposure lovely details, colours tones and a lovely composition. The textures filling the ground attractively providing good overall color contrast. Well done. TFS

very picturesque capture with the surroundings of the town. I like the colors and the textures. Well taken!
timecapturer (36978) 2012-05-03 3:47
fascinating and compelling shot this. The combination of green and the tobacco filter are so effective and attractive. It make the skyline of the city all the more impressive and eye-catching. Superb execution and presentation. Love it!
Have a good day - Brian.

Ola dear Goncalo
An excellent example of Rule of Thirds Framing, I especially like the texture in the foreground. You have used the tobacco filter skillfully. Parabens.
jmdias (48315) 2012-05-03 7:59
o uso do filtro tabaco deu beleza a estas nuvens brancas que ficariam feiosas de outra maneira. gosto das estrias da água no terreno lamacento. vai ver é daí que vem o nome da cidade.
linda foto, bem feita.
ikeharel (43903) 2012-05-03 8:32
Reading your note I thought this was in India, Goncalo - The town of Rawalpindi has a sister town with same name in India.
the use of tobacco-filter gave a whole diff. look on the sky aloft, good that you show ground in it's natural green.
Nice premeditated setup.
Waylim (23310) 2012-05-03 10:29
I like very much the low tide that show the wetland with stream of creeks leading in toward the city skyline. Color are beautiful and natural, except the sky with you signiture tabacco smoke. In this case I think it might be better without because you do have some blue sky. Or maybe post the original as WS.
ciakgiak (30379) 2012-05-03 12:35
una composizione che oltre alle tue consuete tinte ci mostra una panoramica molto bella, la cui bellezza è accentuata da questi rivoli d'acqua sul terreno.
Molto bello ed efficace il cielo, perfetta la qualità.
Un caro abbraccio

As cores estão harmoniosamente distribuídos. O primeiro plano é espetacular, como o céu. A cidade é clara. A luz, cores, nitidez e profundidade são excelentes. Bravo.

marcan44 (6223) 2012-05-04 10:08
hai usato il filtro degradante tabacco con grande equilibrio e maestria.
La nitidezza del paesaggio e il bellissimo cielo contribuiscono a dare una immagine molto suggestiva.
Ti auguro un felice w.e.
macjake (45574) 2012-05-04 10:36
i see that you're using your tobacco filter once again :)
I really do like how it gives a rust color feel to the scene.
Good use of the rule of thirds with the landscape along the bottom third.
an interesting green space too.
ChrisJ (91200) 2012-05-04 12:05
The radial patterns in the lake resemble veins. Good sharpness & judicious use of the tobacco filter for the sky. Excellent sharpness & saturation. Tfs. Parabens y obrigado!
josepmarin (56471) 2012-05-04 13:02
Olá, amigo Gonçalo,
fantástico efecto en el cielo otra vez, debido a los tonos creados por el filtro tabaco. El dramatismo que has alcanzado es muy bueno.
La composición en tercios es armónica y está bien equilibrada, y has gestionado muy bien la luz y los colores.
Es una bonita foto.
Fis2 (76922) 2012-05-04 14:17
Bardzo ciekawy widok.
Dobry kadr i kompozycja.
Atutem tego zdjêcia jest kolorystyka, która robi klimat.

very nice wide angle shot, good details and colors.
Cricri (92095) 2012-05-05 4:11
Plus doux l'effet du filtre tabac dans le ciel nuageux, bonne profondeur, contraste et détails de la vallée, belle réalisation
Belle journée et bon WE
siudzi (27701) 2012-05-05 4:29

Nice result with this wet green fg and good management with your filter, interesting effect for the sky.
kato (9500) 2012-05-08 4:57
You're capturing well this cityscape by a paroramic view and tasteful tone, it's impressive to see many buildings of city, the green nature with a lot of branches of the river and amazing sky dyed to orange color. The whole is harmonized well by beautiful touch.
Have a nice day.
Angshu (52890) 2012-05-08 7:35
Rawalpindi is the neighbouring county of Barreiro? Rawalpindi is the name of a big city in Pakistan! I am surprised with the same name in your country!
A nice picture with the use of tobacco filter with the waterways creating a good lead-in
