Photographer's Note

When my daughter and I visited Portugal last year, our friend/hostess/guide took us to the fabulous village of Sintra, just north and west of Lisbon. She was interested to show us the village and the old hotel where she and her husband sometimes spend weekends away from home and as we were wandering around in the lobby area of the hotel I saw this scene.

A very low light situation inside and bright daylight outside, I knew when I composed the shot I would have to help it along in Photoshop, but only AFTER getting enough detail on film. Not having a tripod with me I did all I could not to move a muscle during the slow shutter speed. In Photoshop: I adjusted the balance between the outside and inside light; added a touch of color saturation; gave a soft glow to the highlights; and made a frame.
