Photo taken in Alcochete - Portugal.

The town of Alcochete is located on the south bank of the River Tagus, near the Tagus Estuary Nature Reserve. Salt has long-been one of the main industries here, and saltpans can still be seen to the north and south of the town.
The town's foundation dates back to the 7th century, after the Moors conquered Lisbon. Its name derives from the Arabic word for kiln, as there have been many found in the area.

Hope you enjoy
Regards from Portugal,

PP Work:
- No Rotation, the photo was taken this way
- Applied a filter from OptikVerve Labs - Still Life 2

Antonio, wonderfull. Amazing compo. My fav.


Hi Antonio,
Someone once told me to never let one of the main lines grow out of a corner... I didn't agree then and I don't agree now, I simply love your composition here! Simple, strong, exciting, different... Very nice work!
Pablo -

Wow ! Excellent job Antonio. Composition is amazing and blue tones are beautiful.
A great picture :)

Hi Antonio,
Nice composition. Desaturation effect is great.

Hi Antonio

I like the dynamism afforded by the tilt, & the interaction between the bird, & the post. Well done!

I would have preferred a slightly less tilted perspective - the fact that the pole comes EXACTLY out of the right hand corner makes it FEEL (for me) a bit too constructed... (IMHO)
Having said that, apart from that I really like the dynamism of how you captured the bird...
A pretty graphic shot, in a way... underlined by your choice of PP...
So overall I feel you have really well done!

Olá António,

Linda na cor, na composição e no enquadramento.
Por outras palavras...excelente.
Um abraço,

Olá Antonio, excelente photo! interessante ver o desenvolvimento dos membros com o passar do tempo! tenho acompanhado (alem de mim), o teu e o do Fer com especial interesse... interessante ver as diferentes fases :) é mesmo divertido e verdadeiramente compensador ver coisas diferentes, neste caso nao so a composicao como o uso de filtros em pos producao.

I enjoy the angle you give! It bring some dynamic :o)That's cool! I like that blue/grey fading on the sky too! What a colrs! :o)

Simplesmente, SOBERBA !!!
Parabéns pela foto e pela nota.

I do hope your neck is ok after the shot. :D But the angle lends a lot dynamism to your picture, which is accentuated by the flying bird. The PP work finishes the work for you. Very good capture. TFS

Continuaçao de boas fotos,

I have been away for a few days so I have missed some of your great pictures. I went browsing through your gallery and came across this one which is my favourite among your latest ones (they are all good but I had to pick one!). This is such an unusual composition that it works perfectly. I really like the blue tone as well as the bird flying toward the lampost. Excellent!

Oh.. this is nice, VERY NICE!
Excellent imagination & creativity,
well done Antonio!

The tilt is very effective here.

Prefect for me...

Ola Antonio!

Belíssima foto!
Muito boa composição!
