Funchalís history goes back over 5 centuries when early Portuguese settlers colonized the coast of a bright and sunny bay where fennel (funcho) grew in abundance, giving itís name to the new town of Funchal. Over the years the population grew, with international trade attracting the attention of all of Europe. Nowadays Funchal is a very modern city with over 104.000 inhabitants. It is one of the safest and cleanest cities in Europe and is a place that takes real pride in itself. In fact, itís Portugalís leading re-cycler! Mayor Miguel Albuquerque is highly respected on the island and is showing that Funchal is a forward thinking City that can be both beautiful and fun filled without being dirty and unsafe. The perfectly cobbled streets in the centre mixed with the modern shopping areas, cafes, bars, restaurants and of course tourists, make Funchal a city that is both interesting and exciting.

Bom dia Tsilla,
That's an awesome shot. Nice frontal POV and a superb narrow DOF. Very good clarity and discret frame.
Best wishes,

But those streets or alleys are so narrow! I guess no problem with communicating with neighbors here, just open the window and no need to shout. Are those buildings that old? Nicely captured with good lighting and good details. Well done, tfs.

  • Great

Hi Tsilla,
You know these alleys are so common in Mdina, Malta! You managed perfectly lighting and the wide angle shot is rendering an attractive perspective in this low POV. Beautiful dash of blue in the sky contrasting with the warm light on the buildings.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Tsilla, that is my kind of scene - only possible in the South, the atmosphere, the charm and the flair - I just love it.
You caught all that excellent - the angle is perfect, love all the little details in their clarity.
Congratulations - kindest regards Monika

PS I am never homesick but those old villages and their charm get me thinking sometimes.

A nice capture from a narrow alley with amazing details and color contrasts, Tsilla!

Good POV and well kept DOF in this work.
The light and exposure are very well handled.
Good work!

Have a nice Sunday.
