I began to like these kind of roads when I was a child. I remember to be in the back side of the car and put myself watching, trough the window, the " meeting point" of the top of trees. Still today, I remember my father driving and me, in silence, looking them. At that time there was not chairs to the kids and I lay down in the back sit to see it better. kids!!! I mean me!!!
Any way, this is my kind of road.

Every country have many of these roads.
This one is from Lido a place that I have known( for the first time) in "Morte a Venezia" by (the admirable) Visconti in an adapted novel from Thomas Mann.

(I have worked in Raw the clarity and after converted in B/W and I gave it a green tonality.)

I love the composition in vertical format and excellent BW presentation . .
Very well done my friend


Hello Teresat,

I really love the atmosphere the low hanging limbs offer the people as they pass beneath their arms. An imagination awaiting for the perfect time to bloom, and I feel that you found that perfect place to illuminate your vision through this beautiful image,

dear Teresa,
lined trees are making unreal perspective to induce us beyond invisible vanishing point,
fore heavy shadow and the arched tree look forming a gate toward your secret zone in mind of visual device,
maybe there, the time and the place are exchanging each other to make the origin of dim and mysterious light itself,
thank you for your excellent picture,

HI Teresat...great tones...how did you do the conversion? looks like you added a lot of contrast...the whole image is very artistic...excellent work.


Hi Teresat,Bonjour,

Hi Teresat...
Beautiful [email protected] shot with so nice tones...
Nice composition...

Hi Teresat,

your childhood was be so beautiful...
the road is amazing...Road is one of my best subject also...the B/W effect is great...the street laps, trees, road dividers all are so interesting...have a great day...


This is my kind of road too, Teresa ;-)

A great POV for this shot, where you show movement and life with such great light.
The sharpness and DOF are well done and clarity is nice too.
The alleé of trees standing tall on both sides of the roads, is very impressive.
The B/W treatment works very well for this shot.
Thanks for such a lovely capture.

Um abracos,

Ciao Teresa,

I love this perspective! The light filtering through the trees, enhancing the depth and leading our eyes till the the point where it is barely possible to recognize the shape of some cars is just super.
A great shot, my dear.

see u around

mmm, my kind of road too.
love the tones

Hello Teresat,

The road and the trees lead you nicely through the shot into the distance. The fact you have a bike overtaking a car gives the image some character too (prob because i'm a biker as well). The black and white conversion you have created finishes off the shot nicely.



Very good composition.....
Great mood ....
Thanks to share this kind of wonderful picture...
Bravo...again and again !!!

Hello Teresat,
what a light,
what a perspective,
what a mood !!!
Regards Caesar

Awesome shot Teresa. I love the dark mood in it and it's a very good composition.

Hello Teresat

Like the mood set in this image. Looks like it is from around the turn of the century. great effects.


A lovely and moody picture I enjoy the b/w choice here. The eye lead is wonderful TFS

Beautiful Teresa. Is the tilt on purpose? Maybe for dramatic effect! I like the processing here, the sepia adds lots of mood here! Nice sharpness too!

Bravo et amitié


Love this Teresa ... it's timeless, and dramatic. I love the tones of B&W, with the very bright spot in the middle. The very dark areas provide a great contrast. very well done ... love it :)

Ciao Teresat

Belíssimo visual, eu adoro os efeitos
e o visual desta fotografia!
A rua arborizada, tem super efeito para criar
uma bonita atmosfera de um bonito passado!
A repetição de poste e árvores são fantástica.
Parabens pelo belo espetáculo!

Hi Teresa - I do like the lighting here. And I understand about seeing these types of roads where the trees meet overhead.
The misty background give a mystery to the scene too
Well done

Olà Teresa!
A lovely composition. Looking at the fog in BG I thinks it is an autum/winter scene. The fog adds great atmosphere: sometimes, the bad weather is friend to of the photographers. :)
You have choose an excellent POV and the perfect format..that makes stand out the scene very well !!
Congratulations Teresa and good W/E.
Ciao! vanda

Hi Teresat,

i always love the B&W photography! The foggy effect on the far of the view add magic to this view MF! Great choice of the vertical crop too.
Awesome work!
TFS and have a nice night!


Ola Teresa,
Bakış açısının doğal sonucu mükemmel bir perspektif çıkmış ortaya.
S/B tercih ve ışık süper sonuş çıkarmış ortaya.

I love your kind of roads, teresa!
Splendid composition with the evanescent vanishing point and these long trees making an umbrella above the cyclist and cars.
You have created a terrific mood with this sepia treatment. Excellent work and note!

Hi Teresat,
I love the composition in this shot with the road vanishing in the distance, beautifully presented in B&W with fantastic tones and great light. Best wishes

Dear Teresat
Nice shot to show your childhood memories
Specially I like the post processing here, which creates a foggy-like atmosphere
And the diffused glow light completes your wonderful job

Bonjour Teresa
Une atmosphere forte et surprenante sans doute liée à l'opposition entre la présence de cette brume arrêtée au loin par les arbres et celle de ces ombres puissantes , témoins d'un fort ensoleillement .Un peu surréaliste, finalement
Bon dimanche Teresa

Very poetic! Thanks for sharing.

A very effective B&W. A rather unusual photo for Venice - we expect to see canals and gondolas! I am wondering if the image is slightly tilted. Great shot, great job.

Ola Teresat,
Linda foto em preto e branco,gosto da pespectiva.

Bom dia Teresa,
also such lanes as with us in the old part of town a wonderful picture of more wundvoller light and details it tunes everything in the photo, the photo is magnificent one, the atmosphere in the picture is so raised, wonderful.

Um abraço.


Hi Teresat,
What an artistic composition almost like painting,beautifully captured with nice details and a little haze and fog in BG makes it more interesting,well framed and an artistic presentation,well done my friend.
Best Wishes

Oh dear...I failed to see this sooner. Mea culpa. The vertical composition is exquisite. Lovely lighting especially the interplay of light and shadow. Your pp work made it more dramatic and moody. This is a very good work my dear.


b &W is a nice choice to take this one. very well captured.

Hi Teresat, this is a very beautiful dreamy shot. Well done!

lovely my friend !

Bonjour Teresat,
Une bien jolie composition avec un effet lumière divin entre la route et les arbres!!!
Jolie mise en scène avec les voitures et la moto et une belle profondeur avec cet alignement d'arbres et de lampadaires le tout harmonieusement baigné dans une brume qui donne à l'image beaucoup de douceur ce qui relève de l'exploit en NB!!!!

This is a fantastic shot!
Great POV and composition.

Thankyou for sharing and very well done.

Take care,

Dear Teresa ~

Wondrous composition !
It makes me dream, to walk there ~
The road, trees, moving objects, and the mood created !!
Blessed days to you.


An impessive capture, I find myself magnetised by the canopy of trees, as you were; the haze of distance contributes to a sense of mystery. I think a very good choice to execute this in black-and-white, it draws attention more effectively to the repeating pattern of trees and lampposts.

Love it!

Hi Teresat
so beautiful road :)

Beautiful lighting and the mist adds a wonderful mood. An inspirational image Teresat.

Ola Teresa , i am expecting your next photo to come onto the TL gallery any day now but hey none appears so there i am navigating in your portfolio and what do i see here , a street in Lido in b&w , to me it has the sepia-like tinge that i like in your photographs , it is so you really , filled with nostalgia you often turn to a passage, a moment of your childhood to express present feelings in your photography and that day at the side of this Lido road you recalled the euphoric moments when lying on the backseat of your father's car you watched in awe the rapid passing of the trees over your head .. boy ,did i experience that too , oh yes you bet i did when our father took us along in his very big convertible car top down ( no seat belts then.. ) to his old grandmother's ancient mansion in the countryside , too small we had to look up at the passing trees , it was magic for kids our age ! Our kind of road ! Thank you dear for this presentation ,i appreciate all the moments relived here , good work !
Um abraço,

Hi Teresat
You are a great artist and your galery ...fantastic
I love this capture
Atmosphere and tones,wonderful
My compliments

Olá Teresa,
I catch a fleeting glimpse of my childhood and we had several roads like this in my city. Then I saw trees being cut down, roads being widen up and all those scenes faded away somewhere far behind. Your compostion of this road taken me back. A wonderful snapshot of the road. A misty amtmosphere plus monochrome made it nostalgic. Such a wonderful image, well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hi Teresat

Superb use of diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point. Good sharpness & tonal range. The fog adds mood, mystery & atmosphere. Excellent graphism & shadow play. Obrigado!

Hi Teresat
Very lovely captured of this scene. Very good POV and composition. A beautiful shot of play between light and shadow. Nice note too. Excellent Work. TFS.
Very well done...
