Photo taking on a sunset on Seixal Bay, district of Setubal.
A seagulll fly freely on this marvellous sky.
my time has come too. After the serie of events and the ones of yesterday I decided not to take part on this joke and leave.
I leave with the sense that I always made my best to contribute to the good functioning of the site, and I think I was always polite with everyone but yesterday I was accused of "throwing troubles", had 1 photo removed and 2 or more critiques censored.
I never had one photo removed, and always tried to write down on the notes something useful and related to the photo, yesterday was also the day that my photo got censored because of unacceptable note.
As so, I feel I'm no longer welcome to TE and will leave.
On this last occasion I would like to thank to each and all of you for your support and for the time you took to critique my photos, I would also like to thank you for being so kind and respectful.
It's the respect that I owe to all of you that makes me not erase all the photos, because your critiques, comments and WS are the most precious treasure I can keep from my passage on this site.
I leave with the sensation that this should not have to happen like this, but I'm grown up enough to know I must keep on going and my freedom of speech cannot be silenced, so I move.
From time to time I may have a look on your works, but will never more post here.
My contact is still here but if you want to find me you can do it on Photofolia, Facebook or on Flickr.
Bye and hope to see you around!!!

Quitting is not the solution because until you acknowledge that abuse in the comments.
In my opinion many people are concerned with the forums and much less with the photographs. The Trekearth for me is to post photos and comment on what I like .....
Personally I only use the forums to inform or be informed about technical problems with the site.
Do you like photography or unnecessary controversy?
There are more serious problems but that they should fight. But even for these there are other sites on the Internet or on the street to demonstrate.
Tenho pena que te vás embora.Virara as costas não é solução até porque tu reconheces que abusaste nos comentários.
Na minha opinião muitos preocupam-se demais com os fóruns e menos com as fotos.O TE para mim é para postar fotos e comentar as que gosto.....
Pessoalmente só utilizo os fóruns para informar ou ser esclarecido acerca de problemas técnicos com o sitio.
Afinal gostas de fotografia ou de polémica desnecessária?
Existem problemas muito mais graves esses sim que deveríamos lutar. Mas também para esses existem outros locais na Internet ou na rua para nos manifestarmos.

me entristece mucho ver algunos amigos y amigas que se marchan de TE. Supongo que todos tendréis vuestras razones, que yo respeto, pero como no conozco los motivos, me gustaría que reconsideráseis esta decisión.
Si no es así, perderemos amigos y espléndidas galerías fotográficas, así como dejaremos de aprender de los estilos de cada uno.
Tu foto de despedida es magnífica, realizada con mucho gusto y elegancia, y además tiene una gran fuerza gráfica.
Um abraço, y te deseo lo mejor allá donde vayas con tu arte fotográfico,

I Understand your Good bye verry well and I`m thinking about doing the same since a few month.
Since yesterday I`m back from Morocco and today I started reading the forum.
IB are stupid americans and the islamic arabic and berbere people of Morocco are much more tolerant and respect other nations ,cultures and religions,because they have an own culture and a long tradition.......
I will still post on TE to be present in the www,but write only a few words to photos I really like
It`s now 26 years since I`ve been to Portugal,but when I`ll return,I`ll contact you.
Have a good time my friend.
All the best,Leo
