[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Alhambra’s history speaks through its many sites and buildings, spanning the age of Arab domination and the Spanish Renaissance. The Moors built the Alcazaba fortress on the Alhambra hill in the ninth century, expanding upon their seventh century Spanish conquests. Competing Arab kingdoms ruled Granada over the centuries. Finally, under the Nasrid Dynasty of the 13th through 15th century, Moorish Granada rose to its pinnacle, including construction of the Alhambra palaces. Granada was the only remaining major Moorish city, Cordova and Seville having fallen to the reconquering Spanish by 1248. Granada enjoyed a prosperous independence partially due to its allegiance with Spanish King Ferdinand III. Late in the 15th century, Spain’s Catholic Monarchs finalized their plans to expel the Moors. In 1492 King Ferdinand of Aragon recaptured Granada. The ensuing Spanish Renaissance period saw the building of the Carlos V palace and the Cathedral. Today, Granada is a university town and the bustling capital of an agricultural province. Its flourishing Albaicin quarter remains Europe’s largest Moorish settlement.

Bonica composició d'una imagte "repetida hasta la saciedad". Es agradable a la vista, tot i que potser enlluernen massa els reflexes del terra.

Enric.

El patio de los leones!, que hermoso!... pero porqué los leones son tan chiquitos?... nunca habían visto leones?. No lo sabemos... o si?.
Saludos!

Buena foto, buscando la simetría.
A pesar de la luz frontal te has sacado buen detalle de las sombras.
La corrección de la perspectiva te ha dado el famoso efecto barril, pero el uso del gran angular era obligatorio. Aún así he decir que me gusta la foto.
Que tal el AEF/AEL? Cuentame como te va y si te sirvió de algo lo que te conté.
Besos.

I was there in last may. I was a lovely day when I visit Al Hambra.
