Hi José, bonjour,
Nice point of view and great details of the area of the Marina of Cascais bay north of Lisbon,
good contrast and light with a black & white presentation,
good perpective and well composed picture.

Hello Jose, I like the way that you have used the roofs of the huts and their striped pattern, and the surf boards as a kind of inner frame that points our eyes towards the marina and the land beyond.
Very effective use of the b/w.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Jose...very nice black and white shot. Nice black and white tones and very nice contrast.

Hi Jose,
A very clean image, the tones are sharp and the composition is great. I was here in the summer of 2011. a beautiful spot indeed.

Hi Jose,
A nicely converted B&W view with so many lovely contrasts. I like the considerable depth varying from a beach to a City. Marvelous architecture.
Well done for this neat work.

Ciao José, great view of beautiful marina, fascinating B&W, splendid light and excelent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio


This is a superb atmosphere in B&W, and the pov is clever, it uses the lines of huts for a very interesting visual impact.
Elegant work well balanced with a good lighting management.

Bom dia José,
Você me convence que Portugal, a pesar de seus lindas cores e grandes momentos de luz, tem que ser tratado em PB, que está mais próximo do Fado.
Meus cumprimentos,

I like your pov of this marina and good choice to go B&W it has a great contrast. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Beach huts are a favourite subject of mine Jose, so I was attracted to your image for that reason initially. But there is so much else to look at in this busy harbour. I like the b/w and extreme contrast in tones. Perfect rule of thirds composition and I also like how the boats are all sailing into the frame from the right side.


Bonjour Jose
This is a very nice B&W..very clear,super sharp,and beautiful contrast.great POV..the beautiful contrast is the key of this photo...well done..nice view of this Marina

bonjour José
Strange impression; I see ships, something of a fishing harbour , but very few area of sand in the bg and those non less strange rows of cabins built as a factory and windsurfing waiting for guests.I wonder where and how people take their bath here?
The result is a nice B&W picture questioning about summer entertainment in this place.The contrast makes it very attractive
Nice weekend
