Mais uma grande foto! O background building é qualquer coisa!!!

Pois é, Tr3nta, se as minhas fotos tivessem um tratamento ficavam bem melhor, mas eu sou um grande nabo, não percebo nada de fotografia e nem sequer sei trabalhar com o HDR... lol! Tenho que perder algum tempo e ver se atino com isso... :-)

WHOA! That hotel looks like a giant wedding cake sitting there so spotless! The statue is a nice contrast as well. Just lovely. And did I congratulate you on that award??

You've really enjoyed good sunlight in this recent series of photos - and the sun certainly makes that hotel sparkle. Nice contrast between the white of the hotel and the dark shades of the statue.

Good angle and great light. Does feel like part of the colour spectrum is sort of missing in this one, still a nice shot.

Congratulations too ! Thanks for your visits to my blog and your comments. I' ashamed I did never read Senior Garcia Lorca. I think to remind he was killed during your civil war.

I had heard about that bullfighters hotel, and I ,too will stop by again to look more closely at your pictures.

Me encantan las fotografias de su cuidad!

What a great photo! He looks massive from that angle. :)

Share my point of view... said...

Nice statue of appreciation! I assume if they do one for our current prime minister, it'll be vandalized.

Mariposa said...

Sr. Lorca looks fine here. He should thank you ;)

This is another fine photo. Such a stunning building and I like the kindness of the statue, if that makes any sense.

I loved this picture. Both the statue and the building behind captures the eye but personally i loved the statue more.
congrats for the award. Keep it up!!!

This is really a nice picture. I ever wonder how to take a statue in the context. You managed here pretty well and I can imagine that the bird will fly away and disappear
