The first tramway in Lisbon entered service on 17 November 1873, as a horsecar line. On 30 August 1901, Lisbon's first electric tramway commenced operations. Within a year, all of the city's tramways had been converted to electric traction.
Up until 1959, the network of lines was further developed, and in that year it reached its greatest extent. At that time, there was a total of 27 tram lines in Lisbon, of which six operated as circle lines. As the circle lines operated in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions, each with its own route number, it is more correct to speak of a total of 24 tram routes, all of them running on 900 mm (2 ft 11 1⁄2 in) narrow gauge tram lines.

I really like this moody and atmospheric image. Excellent point of view along the street from this high vantage point. The light is very well controlled and the clarity superb. Very well done.

a different view of Lisbon, I like this street and the moment you captured with the tram and the car in a rainy day, well seen,

Good presentation of this street of Lisbonne. I like the low sunlight and the contrast of the artificial light of the cars. Beautiful composition.

Another one of your trademark shots that makes great use of leading lines as always to create a natural pathway for the eye through the image.

Une de tes plus belles images.Le temps gris donne de belles teintes douces. J'aime beaucoup les phares des voitures qui se prolongent sur l'asphalte.

De efect compozitia cu strada asta in forma de S strabatuta de tramvaie. Pentru noi este frumos dar cum o fi pentru cei ce locuiesc in cladirile astea?
O seara buna!

another,beautiful and icinic capture of Lisbon.The picturesque and hilly location of the city makes such views really unique.And of course the symbol of Lisbon-the old tram,but also the laundry drying outside the windows,so commonly in Lisbon make your image so beautiful and very "atmospheric".Great shot!
holmertz (42257) 2012-08-30 7:45
Possibly your best picture so far from Lisbon. I like the curves of the street, the mild colours before nightfall, the lights from the cars and the tram, the wet street, the many balconies, signs, lines in the street. To sum it up I like this photo.

A very well rendered rainy Liboa evening atmosphere - it's almost painting like. And you placed the curved road astutely in the frame, which catered for a fine and dynamic perspective indeed!
Best regards from Rotterdam,

a good picture!!!
danos (87873) 2012-08-30 13:56
nice the panoramic view of the area this cloudy day,with the tramway this symbol of Lisbon to passing by in front of your lens.
With its 27 tram lines a lot of the citizens will be obliged going to their jobs and general to their duties.

Une intéressante vue plongeante sur cette rue de Lisbonne. Bonne composition d'image.

Hello dear Daniel
Another superb POV of these characteristic streets of Lisbon. The Blue Hour adds a touch of romance and the colours make a beautiful flag. The white frame suits the composition well.
Have a great Friday

bella vista dall'alto su Lisbona, con un buon inserimento del tipico tram.
La macchina in sorpasso, dà un buon senso di movimento alla scena.
Nonostante la poca luce, i colori sono belli e fedeli.

a another very beautiful picture from the lisboa with this corner with the traim
ACL1978 (7507) 2012-09-03 20:17
The bright burst of light from the headlights piercing an otherwise gray image is what really brings this one together, Daniel. Your framing and POV, looking down the street at a great angle, helps set the tone, and you've really captured the atmosphere of a rainy day well.

a beautiful atmospheric picture composed from a great point of view. The scene is wonderful to watch with the sweepng depth and perspective of your composition into the picturesque colourful street. I love the two curves that define the part of the street we are watching, the excellent definition and sharpness in the dark ambiance, the vividness and intesity of the lights and the appealing mysterious atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
