[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We were leaving the parking lot to head back home after a long walk at Nazaré beach last Sunday.

As I was driving, those apartments caught my eye once more as they shone under the boiling sun.

Through my rear view mirror, I made sure that there was no one driving behind me before I stopped the car, opened the front right window and, still sitting at the steering wheel, I aimed for them using maximum zoom. And that’s when the water ski doo decided to pop in :)

I cropped off an electricity pole close to the appartments, enhanced the vegetation colors slightly and added the frame.

Thank you for viewing,

A wonderful action shot (in FG) with great looking apartments in the BG, Maria!

The colors are nice and the way you placed the person using ski doo, is well done. The sharpness and POV are well chosen and the clarity is nice. Good use of the natural light. Well done!

Um abracos,

Hi Lurdes
You captured a bright and sunny day and one lucky person who was fortunate to have some fun on the water. Nicely balanced, bright colour and well composed. I wish I was there ; )

Bom da Lurdes,
Belíssima essa sucessão de camadas se superpondo na foto. A luz faz um trabalho de bordadura nas casas ao fundo que é um belo efeito. Bela imagem.
Linda imagem.

Hi Lurdes,
very well composition, I like the contrast between nature and human "noise".
