Guess I'm posting my first photo of Lisbon here and also the first one of the TE Meeting with Professor Bulent Atalay, Gonçalo Lopes and José Pires, that took place on the 5th August.
This is a photo taken in Santa Luzia, a famous viewpoint, where it's possible to have a wonderful view of the Tagus River and Alfama.The dome we see in background is Santa Engrácia, today a National Pantheon, that was started by the end of the 17th century and finished almost three hundred years later.

The 'kana' flowers makes for a good starting point to present this part of Lisbon as they also framed naturally the dome. pleasant luminosity and natural colours are nicely rendered.
Oh, Jose was at the meeting ;) Long time we did not see him on TE...

Beautiful POV and a great shot, the DoF is really good, you have the distant Nation Pantheon really nice and sharp, the flower in the foreground adds so much more colorful and warm feeling and depth. It is and excellent effort and it is not easy I try a few time and it is always blur one thing or the other.
It is nice to meeting up with some people here you know for many years.
emka (91496) 2011-08-25 23:43

¡qué bonita foto nos presentas aquí! Has escogido un gran encuadre con las flores en el primer plano, creando un bello marco para la fantástica cúpula blanca, que se combina con un interesante grafismo de los tejados rojos y su elegante geometría.
La alta calidad y la nitidez de la imagen nos indica que has hecho un trabajo excelente con el foco y con la profundidad de campo, porque podemos ver claramente tanto todos los detalles de las flores, como los de la magnífica arquitectura del fondo.
Espero poder tomar alguna foto como la tuya cuando vaya a Lisboa dentro de algo más de dos meses.
Muy bella foto.

I like the presentation of this shot. You have used the colourful flowers to great effect. They break up the empty space in the sky and of course frame the dome which still remains the central feature. I like the little houses with their red tiled roofs which dominate the bottom half of the frame.
ikeharel (67165) 2011-08-26 1:37
A fabulous photo taken from the famous Miraduoro-Santa-Luzia.
Interesting POV to show the dome and red roof-tops of Alfama, with flowers in FG to decorate the scene.
Guenther (10915) 2011-08-26 2:31
I like this composition, with the dome perfectly placed between the flowers and the great depth keeping in focus the whole picture from the colourful flowers to the dome in the distance, it works very well here... fine shot!
Have a nice day
timecapturer (49288) 2011-08-26 3:39
a beautifully constructed composition with stunning, clarity, sharpness, colour and DOF. The light management is also flawless. It is a real quality image and spectacular presentation. Superb!
Have a peacful weekend - Brian.
sacavem (18620) 2011-08-26 3:44
Aproveito as palavras do nosso amigo Josep,porque ele descreve muito bem o que eu penso acerca desta tua maravilhosa composição, muita inspiração no momento :)
Só não percebe como o f/6.4 consegue definição tão boa no fundo e ao mesmo tempo no 1º plano.
Parabéns pelo trabalho, mas falta aqui um Ws :(
paololg (31448) 2011-08-26 6:47
Ciao dear Ana,
only a great photographer like you can make a so beautiful and evocative composition. Surely our dear friend Bulent will be proud to enjoy this image that testifies your pleasant meeting.
Ciao, have a nice weekend!
corjan3 (2109) 2011-08-26 6:53
What a beutiful image! Clear, sharp with wonderful colours, and great composition in remarkable DOF. What a pleasure to view!
npecanhuk (73492) 2011-08-26 15:36
Gosto muito do pdv escolhido, da composição, das cores obtidas e do manuseio da luz! Essa planta do primeiro plano foi uma ótima ideia! Os detalhes do casario e do panteão ao fundo também estão excelentes e muito bonitos!
Parabéns, abraços e um ótimo fds prá ti,
dip (23888) 2011-08-26 21:21
you framed the dome nicely between the colorful flowers!

rodgerg (55767) 2011-08-27 1:03
An efficience POV to the Alfama's skyline with the flowers in the Fg which give life and depht. The duomo of the church arise very well. The houses nad the red roofs give a very plesasant graphic effect.

batalay (37845) 2011-08-27 21:37
What a magnificent shot of Santa Engracia in token of our mini TE meeting. By using the flowers to frame the majestic dome, you have achieved very impressive depth of field. You've also honored my Portuguese friends and me, and I am grateful for that gesture.
Longroute (19396) 2011-08-28 1:00
A very beautiful and masterful composition Ana,
I like how you framed the church with the flowers and the great DOF which came out. Both the church and the flowers are lovely subjects and the fine summer light gave you shining colours.
I guess you had a nice time at the meeting....
abmdsudi (50480) 2011-08-28 3:25
Absolutely beautiful shot with great details, texture and colors of the foreground subjects is amazing,
Wonderful well composed shot in beautiful light, rich colors, contrast and good technical quality.

Ciao Ana, Lisbon, a city that sooner or later I'll have to visit, I have a strong curiosity and attraction, beautiful composition with the flowers in the foreground and the dome in the background with white houses, super sharp, resplendent light, Valter
lucasgalodoido (21714) 2011-08-29 5:23
muito bonita mesmo essa foto de Lisboa, com vários elementos distintos em perfeita harmonia. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,
mkamionka (34593) 2011-08-30 1:33
great light and subject. I had the pleasure to be there myself. It is a wonderful place. I like the idea however I think the flowers go a bit too deep into the main theme and work a bit disturbing. I think I would personally rearrange it a little. But this is always a personal taste matter.
Very well done,
eldancer1 (35471) 2011-08-30 9:14
Wow! Awesome and beautiful composition. Good use of the flowers to frame church dome. Sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
bema (26409) 2011-08-30 12:04
with all my respect, i can only say a few words about this picture:
it´s a fantastic capture !
thanks for sharing, see you soon, kind regards Bernd
Ricx (13495) 2011-08-30 12:07
Hi Ana, You have done extremely well in using the bright canna flower in the fg- the rooves are crystal sharp and the dome plays a major focal point - extremely well done - and hope to see many more from the TE meeting. we are having our second TE meeting this weekend - hopefully we will have some sunshine.. Rich
TopGeo (38216) 2011-08-30 14:07
Hello Ana! Is an excellent choice I like a bouquet of flowers and detail of the bg combine in a standard and quality composition of Lisbon and Santa Luzia! Excellent your meeting also many excellent friends! my best Wishes
danyy (0) 2011-08-30 23:07
le premier plan fleuri bien que bouchant l'arrière plan, ne me gêne pas car il apporte une belle touche de couleur et de fraîcheur.
Il ne masque pas l'élément principal, ce dôme.
Une photo nette et bien construite.
tober (8797) 2011-08-31 1:53
Hello Ana, this is maybe one of the most beautiful photos of the famous Pantheon I have ever seen. Apparently you had a wonderful TE Meeting. Congratulations, Tolga
mauro61 (52855) 2011-08-31 10:53
una fantastica immagine per la resa e per la bellezza dell'inquadratura con i fiori in FG e la cupola della chiesa sullo sfondo.
otima la qualità,
Docarmo (9639) 2011-09-01 20:59
Que beleza de foto! O primeiro plano e o fundo impecavelmente nítidos! Cores e luminosidade estupendas!
wolf38 (31286) 2011-09-03 9:37
Hello Ana. The flowers are a wonderful foreground. Ultimately, they are almost more important than the cityscape behind. Composition, light and colors are best. Well done. Rgds, Wolfgang.
Angshu (56748) 2011-09-04 21:44
The framing is perfect! Its a picture which is all about composition & you've done very well. The flowers with their bright colours also stand out against the sky. Harsh light has been handled very well! Good work!
delpeoples (56722) 2011-09-05 15:43
Ola dear Ana
How wonderful that you all got to meet up. I trust it was a very enjoyable day. You had beautiful weather of course and I love this unique POV shot through the tendrils of this beautiful plant. What kind of plant is it? It seems similar to a Bird of Paradise. And of course the barocque dome of the church in the bacground contrasted with those marvellous red roofs is the cherry on the cake.
Thanks for sharing, um abraco and I hope to one day meet you personally too :)
s_lush (16134) 2011-09-13 13:55
You have presented this wonderful fragment of Lisboa's architecture in such an aesthetic way and with perfect photographic technique. The depth of focus is simply unbelievable. Excellent job!
jmdias (61288) 2011-09-13 17:25
um lindo detalhe, gostei da inclusão da flor e da maneira como vc a usou como moldura ao redor da cúpula. uma foto bem feita e que escapa ao lugar-comum. bem feita.
flory (4848) 2011-09-15 0:15
nice frame for this image and the light was another friend at that meeting:)
fotka (4221) 2011-10-04 12:21
It is a lovely compositon with a church between two branches of flowers.
The quality of photo is perfect with great colors, light and sharpness.

sibillino (681) 2011-11-04 6:16
Hi Ana, colors and clearness are the force of this your beautifulst release
.the first one slowly with the flowers with the church to the center renders the POV only. It compliments and good WE
Hellas (6897) 2011-11-21 22:23
