The Whisper's Street (calle de los Suspiros) is perhaps the most famous street of Colonia del Sacramento, a city whose historical centre is a UNESCO world heritage site since 1995.
No sunny day when taking the photo.

Not a sunny day, sure, but the delicate colour of the houses is enough to make this a lovely capture of the street and the houses around it.
I like the sharp details and the DOF that really take the attention of the viewer from the red walls in the foreground to the trees far in the background.

In spite of the grey cloudy sky, you obtained such an attractive picture of that lovely place by the PLATA!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, dof, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

Hola pedro ,
Despite of the poor light , this is a superb presentation of this beautiful colonial style that I appreciate a lot . Colors and textures of the old walls have a certain charm .

The lack of sun has not affected your capture here, as the color and texture of the ground and buildings more than make up for it. This place looks really ancient, and you chose a beautiful angle from which to shoot the scene. It has such excellent depth and the sensation of the hill is captured perfectly!
All the best

This deserted street appears magnificent to my canadian eyes that weep for a few zombies having a walk on cobblestones to enhance the eerie mood!
Very well done!

as i've said many times before, we don't get to see many photos from Uruguay on TE, so the more the better.
so what is that place on the right? a hotel of some type?
I really like the way the wall is crusted and textural.
For sure there are lots of photos to be had here, thanks for sharing this one with us.

le tue note assai interessanti e questa bella fotografia i hanno fatto conoscere questa località che non conoscevo.
Bene ha fatto l'Unesco a prendere la protezione di questo sito assai interessante.
Belli nella foto sia i colori che la prospettiva ottimi per valorizzare questa strada molto interessante per l'aspetto e per i colori.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
