I just love the streets of Salvador de Bahia :)
A typical view from the "Pelourinho", the old square located in the historic center of Salvador de Bahia. That place was compeletely restored thanks to several years program and today it looks absoluelty marvelous.
It is quite a touristic of course but the place kept a charming flavour from the past especially because of the Baroque architecture and the steep streets paved with stones. When walking at night, one can encounter many typical activities like the women preparing the "Moqueca de Peixe" which is very tastys coco milk based mixture of vegetables and fish. One can see improvised concerts in different cafés close to that place. In fact, you always have great smells and songs escpaing from the windows above you.

Autre belle photo du Pelourinho. Les coulerus sont superbes aussi come le contrast. J'adore l'effect obtenu sur le bleu du ciel. J'imagine que c'est du au Polirizer, n'est ce pas?

Beautiful skies, Steven! I like the vivid colors and contrast used here! very colorfull! I think you oversharpened it abit, but aside from that, a lovely picture from Brazil!

Une qualité de couleurs irréprochable qui attire le regard.
Cependant l'utilisation d'un 17 mm provoque ces fameuses déformations de perspective.
J'ai essayé d'y remédier en WS mais avec une perte de quelques éléments de la composition.
Dans ce cas je cadre plus large pour pouvoir corriger après.
