[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My contribution to this week's theme.
Taken on the Tower of Bethlehem (Torre de Belém)

This is one of the very first photos shot with this camera and in my renewed interest in photography.
It has some faults, but I like it anyway, hope you do too.

On PP: Lightroom - processing very limited because I was taking photos in JPEG at first; Dodge & burn the monument and exposure lift, color correct the sky.

Bela torre, Lauro, chamou mais minha atenção do que a gaivota.
Bela foto.

Hi Lauro,
A nice POV and great entry for this weeks theme.

Hello Lauro,
Such central placing often does not work but it does work here for me. I agree with Erwin about the POV and I also like the curves and shapes. Very good definition too and the gull forms an excellent focal point. Well done.

Hi Laura
Very nice shot. I think the tower looks very 3D and very sharp. The seagull looks as if it's part of the Tower.
