1.501 FOTOS NO TREK EARTH !!!
VERDE & CONCRETO !!!
1,500 PICTURES ON TREK EARTH !!!
GREEN & CONCRETE !!!
This picture was taken some time ago and I did it after walking around the main city park in CAMPINAS (PARQUE PORTUGAL, mais conhecido como PARQUE TAQUARAL - PORTUGAL PARK, mostly known as TAQUARAL PARK).
In this picture, one can see in the distance some of the CAMBUÍ NEIGHBORHOOD, where three of the highrises from my previous pictures are located.
To the left, the tallest one, under construction, was the first one from the series "HIGHRISE LIVING"! A bit to the right, the third one from the same series!
Some TE friends called all that green a "jungle" or a "forest", but sorry to inform that's none of them at all! We still have some forests in the State of São Paulo, rarely untouched, mostly in mountaineous areas, along the coast!

A great way to bring the two together. Is the jungle enveloping the city, or the city surrounding the jungle?? :) Which one will eventually win for good? I like what you've done here to showcase both elements, and the color combination of blue/green being broken by the concrete colors is perfectly placed along the 1/3rd line...technically sound. A neat composition that blends everything in harmony, or seemingly so anyway. Beautifully bright, colorful and crisp. Love the view. Have a great day ahead.

Very fine composition with the rich foreground of vegetation. I like the line of modern buildings. Well seen, have a fine day.

A refreshing scene and time to colour the dull ugly urban concrete jungle behind, as green brings lots of life and the amount of oxygen the forest generates. Exposure works well, clarity is fine, pin sharp, colouring is vivid with great contrast to blue sky
A graceful shot! TFS

This park is for sure the lungs of the city. I like the importance you gave to the trees. It looks like they are devouring the city ! The whole picture is well lit, and there is a good level of contrast with the green leafy foreground. Well done.

Felicidades por tu foto 1500 en TE!
Bonita combinación de verde vegetación y aglomeración urbana, que has captado muy bien con este buen encuadre, desde un punto de vista bien buscado.
Me gusta la estructura en tercios de la composición, su buena luz, sus fantásticos colores y el gran contraste cromático.
Es un trabajo muy vistoso y bien realizado.

I love this composition, it creates a beautiful combination of the lush vegetation and the modern towers of the city. The light across the whole scene is really appealing too. I rarely see both these elements combined, forest and urban, and it looks beautiful.

Lovely composition this is with the row of buildings floating on the sea of greens. Beautiful imagery. Wonderful colors and clarity all over. Thanks for sharing a city scene from unique point of view.

A dramatic composition that combines the beauty of this green lung and the modern skyline of the city with its tall buildings, lucky to have so close, this abundance of vegfetacion.
The image has a rich color, very natural tones.
Excellent brightness and very good focus.
Very good job. I love it.
Enjoy a happy evening.

Boa noite Ney
Verde lindo, como sempre é. Os prédios lá longe só deram maior graça à foto.

So is the city of Sao Paulo located in the middle of a Jungle :)
certainly looks like it here!
what a unique looking scene this is, when you think about it how often do we see a city with this type of fg in it!?
love the colors and the composition you chose.

Belle luminosité sur ta photo, intéressant cadrage avec ce premier plan verdoyant et très nature qui contraste avec les buildings de la ville, bien présenté.

Natural forest vs concrete forest ! Nice colours, so vivid. I like the composition that shows the city in its environment. Excellent DOF and sharpness.

lindo contraste entre o verde do parque e a barreira de edifícios ao fundo. gostei do resultado fotográfico.
pois é, o pessoal lá de fora sempre chama qualquer pedacinho de mato de selva, mas se tem algo que me irrita é chamar floresta tropical de rain forest, é uma denominação idiota, afinal não conheço nenhuma floresta que esteja viva sem chuva, seja aqui ou na noruega..
