[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Usually I take photos from the street to a monument, here I've tried to shot the street from inside.
I took this photo in the Alcobaça Monastery and I like the way as the door act as a natural frame. I didn´t cut the step because I think it reinforce the idea "from inside".

Monastary of Alcobaça - As a result of a vow by King Afonso Henriques to Bernard de Clairvaux, on occasion of Santar'em's conquest in 1147, the Monastery of Alcobaça states the connection of the new country to the European Gothic. The population model oriented by the Cistercian Order would leave traces in the Alcobaça region under the influence of the monastery. Its artistic meaning marked considerably the monastic architecture, not only the pureness and luminosity of the nave´s architectonic lines, but also the sucessive work campaingns, from the Renaissamce to the Baroque. The crowning Saga of the "Deceased Queen", subject of regal history and international literature, was sculped on the tombs of Pedro and Inês, conferring a universal value to Alcobaça. - Text from the Monastery brochure

selam Aida;
Very nice idea and wonderful B/W shot!

Well seen and good exposure but regarding framing I'd like without dark lower side; it gives a feeling of separation between the onlooker and the outdoor like looking through a window.

Excellent monochrome presentation. Placement of camera is innovative which is providing a natural frame. Fine details and good control on light is appreciated. Well done Aida.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful image.

très belle phot vec ce couple vraiment bien placé,
ton N&B et très réussi

this one is just great
black & white and the natural frame make it very special

Hello Aída
Pleasant composition, something dramatic, as all the takings in B/W. The special silhouette of the door, recreates an pleasant depth.
Excellent work, friend

Hello Aida,

Very good example of observing photographer eye, matching motives and surrounding. Nice impact on the viewer by giving impression of observing from the interior, i.e. drawing a communication line between the scene and the viewer. Great work!


Olá... O que se pode dizer de uma foto tão boa como esta? Nada... Só nos resta olhar para ela e deliciar com o que ela nos oferece...


Me encanta!
Creo que me hubiese gustado aunque la pareja no hubiese aparecido, pero que esté la hace aún mucho mejor...
Me gusta el b/n y como aparece enmarcada.
Realmente me parece un buen trabajo.
Saludos Aida,
Mical :)

Hello Aida ,
Very nicely done and great story.
