[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This old fortification is know as Fort of Saint Teodósio, Forte da Cadaveira (name of the hill) or Forte d’Assubida (subida=climb). It's in ruins although it belongs to our cultural heritage. I guess some day it will harbour a restaurant of some gift shop, which will be an improvment on it's current state.
The location is the same as http://www.treklens.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=667822.

What caught my eye was the cloud formation once again mimicking (althought losely) the shape of the structure.

On PP: Nothing new except that I painted the sky darker to bring out the clouds.

Hello Lauro

Now here is an image tat pops. I like it. Clouds can make or break an image. Well done on the capture of nature to accentuate your image.


Hello Lauro, the clouds certainly echo the shape of the building and help to create an interesting composition.
B/w suits the subject perfectly.
Regards Jean.

salut lauro,
extraordinaire travail
tu dois travailler sur le première plan ;rendre moins nette par exemple...

Hi Lauro, those clouds certainly do catch the eye, the image as a whole has a kind of feel like an old fashioned negative,especially with the light on the clouds against the darker sky. Fiona

Bom dia Lauro,
Esse traço arquitetônico é velho conhecido dos brasileiros, alguns enterrados nos mais longínquos lugares deste gigantesco território e, ainda hoje, difíceis de atingir. perguntei-me muitas vezes como foi que os portugueses chegaram até ali e como os construiram.
Bela imagem, tensa e grandiosa.
Melhores cumprimentos.
