...natural light changes Lisbon mood.There is a Yellow tonality over the city and the faces expressions change very much.Days became so short...but snow in Lisbon is more a dream than a reality.

Hi Teresat,
Nice point of view of this train on railroad in Lisbonne,
Excellent details and beautiful tone of colors,
Good perpective too.
My compliments

That is one classic shot of a street car and from a Lisboner at that , it reminds me of your image where only the side of one is visible , the angle was different seen from the rear but this view is what makes the shot as it veers round the bend , driver in full view and the sight of a young boy leaning out of the window is a nice touch i reckon ,i think both spotted you ha ha , hum by the way you are coming to grip with your new Sony Alpha !
You caught a black umbrella in this stop action capture hum it could be erased i believe , the image speaks for itself looking at the grey weather in the open skies behind , it makes me wonder about Lisbon not getting snow in winter , more rain than the elusive white stuff that we Canadians must shovel out of our driveways you can't dream of a white winter can you , hi hi ? I would rather have your mild rainy one than a cold snowy one , just my view on winters dear friend ,i hate the cold , lol!
Take care Teresa ,
Um abraço,

Hi Teresat..I love what you do with tones....your shots look like they could be from 50 years ago and hand colored...nice work.

Hi Teresat,
A very sharp capture of this old tram from an agreeable POV.
Very nice warm atmosphere, perhaps of early morning.
Great positioning of the vehicle with a nice curve of the rails.
Very neat work with so harmonious colors.
Best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Teresat...
Nice shot with so nice detail...

Ola Teresat!
Martim Moniz! Fine shot. Nice colours. Good contrast and sharpness.

Merhaba Teresa,
Lizbon'dan nostaljik bir görünüm.
Uyguladığınız efekti çok beğendim.


Hi teresa.
A lovely lower POV for this beautiful shot captured with amazing diffused lighting and the overcast makes your composition more appealing,very well done,
Best Wishes

Bonjour Teresa
C'est la première fois que je vois un tram courir sur des rails en or et c'est ma foi bien joli.
Tres beau tram avec un petit garçon rêveur qui regarde à la fenêtre et on dirait que c'est une bonne soeur qui conduit; tu m'as fait pousser le rêve un peu loin, on dirait.
um abraço

Very nice perspective Teresa! I totally understand that mood, even here in Texas, we don't have snow, but the miserable cold can be very depressing! I love the low profile here, the view OVER the edge of the road is very nice!

Hello Teresa :)

The beauty introduction of this splendid tram with woman for steering - wheel :)
Beautiful natural colours, light and sharpness.
Pretty, showy work and perfectly showed.
It pleases me very...congratulations!!!

I greet warmly.

Boa noite Teresa
Uma perspectiva diferente e ângulo de visão Teresa! Uma luz amarela worm sonhadora, uma criança espreitando pela janela para ver o mundo e uma mulher no volante. Ele conta uma história.
Obrigado por apresentar um bom trabalho de arte
Um abraço

Good evening Teresa
A different perspective and angle of view Teresa! A dreamy yellow worm light, a child peeping through the window to see the world and a woman on the wheel. It tells a story.
Thank you for presenting a good art work
Um abraço

sueprbe captage, de belle couleur, ça changepour toi, superbe déclenchement on bon moment just sur la butte, génail.

Merci et amitié


A nice POV for taking such shots, Teresa!
The intense colors of the tram are so wonderfully shown in this shot.
The sharpness and DOF are well done.
A vertical frame suits well to the picture.
Well done!

Olà Teresa!
Sorry...I saw your picture some days ago...then TL didn't work...so I forgot :))
When I saw this picture I immediately liked it.
You captured a magic light, which gives a particular atmosphere to the scene and the leaves and the tracks seem golden. Great sharpness and details.
Excellent capture of this scene of daily life.
Congratulations my dear friend.
Ciao! Vanda

I hope the driver was not drinking Jameson whisky! I like your pov and it has a good dof with sharp details. Very nice colors. Well done, tfs.

Its all been said but excellent pov with the tram just coming over the brow of a hill and the low height that the shot was taken, great colouring and mood. Nice work

Ciao Teresat

Estas maravilhas por aqui, são só de enfeite, e ainda apenas 1 circula pelo centro velho da
Cidade como Bonde Trurístico!
A vegetação no enquadramento funciona bem,
e cria uma sensação de profundidade.
Belo visual e bom passeio!

Olà Teresa!
Good contrast and sharpness,natural light.Super capture of this scene of daily life.

Um abraço

This really is a sparkling urban photo, Teresa. First of all because of the way you captured the light and rendered the colors. But also because of some details such as the advertisement*, the look of the tram driver and of the young passenger, as well as the partly visible umbrella.
The focal length you used helps to make the subject matter really pop out: we almost have the impression of being capable to touch the tram.
Magic yellow atmophere...
TFS & kind regards,
*I see where Jean (Reflex) is aiming at in his WS, but I think wiping out the advertisement takes away part of the charm of your picture.

dear Teresa,
a lovely shot of the pretty little tram,
it looks carrying the joyful dream to me,

"Oh, what can it mean
To a daydream believer"
The Monkeys :Daydream Believer

thank you for your excellent shot,

Fascinating - we have similar trams in our city. Nice colours and I like the umbrella in the left of the frame.

Hi Teresat! Beautiful tones, well done.
Best regards Csabi

Amiga Teresa,

Voltei à minha infância, no Rio de Janeiro. Um tempo gostoso demais para ser esquecido. E os bondes são presença marcante na história da minha vida.

Linda fotografia, rica em detalhes, belas cores, luz, poesia.


Hi MF Teresat,

Extremely striking photo, the colours are so intense and vivid.
Great POV too MF!


Hello Teresa,

There is always a train leaving for some other!
This is particularly a tram in harmonious colors!
I see the tip of an umbrella:))) the sky is gray, nice atmosphere, excellent details here and there.
My compliments. TFS. Beautiful evening.

Hi Teresa
before leaving for Portugal (in 3 weeks) I browsed your gallery. my compliments!.
this is a fantastic display of the old yellow tram of Lisbon. artistic and unique. inspiring photo.

Bonjour Teresat,

Joli cadrage sur ce tramway aux jolies couleurs qui ressort à merveille dans la grisaille de ce paysage!!!

Olá Teresa,
The advertisement of Jemeson reminds me my favourite Irish Pub in Barcelona, "George Pyne". And my favourite drink in winter on the weekend is Jameson too. You've beautifully caught this tram in fine details and excellent luminosity. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Teresa,
I was in Lisboa about three weeks ago. So this one looks familiar. I spent a few day there and what a beautiful place. I will be posting photos that I took there in the future.

As for this one, I like the tight crop and I like to see people in this kind of shot - the driver and the boy looking from a side window. I think you could have cloned out the umbrella that is sticking out on the left, but that is minor. A nice, very interesting capture.

Dear Teresa
Another lighting hunt by your sharp eyes!
Excellent advertising in yellow tone with fine details
I am a dreamer like you, I think its started when I was a little boy!
Best Regards

Non l'ultima ...ma un "CULT" Lisbona e San Francisco hanno i tram più belli e fotograficamente super.
Hai colto , profondità di campo ed uno splendido frontale.
Grande .

Ciao Teresa, great view of fantastic tram with beautiful decoration, excellent clarity, fine details, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Teresat,

The curve of the rail track is sending my eyes toward the tram. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tram. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.


Excelente fotografia!
Ângulo espectacular! :)
