Yellow is one of the colors of Lisbon.In this photo you can see The Yellow "eléctrico".Almost all of them are yellow, but there are some, red ( specially in the line 28)..
Yellow, green, white are the most usual colors of the buildings in the historic places of Lisbon.
Behind the " Electrico" you see a lateral facade of Lisbon Cathedral ( Sé).

...and, for last but not least, there is the color of sky: the blue bright sky, almost all the year ... I miss it... in this grey winter, in Lisbon.

ahh!! you posted! Very nice Teresa! I love the artistic value in this! The muted yellow colors are nice! I like the focus being on the windows! That would be what would catch my eyes also! Beautiful!

Olá minha amiga Teresa!

Você nunca deixa de me surpreender. I love the POV aqui, faz a foto muito interessante! Capturando a faixa de viragem em que desaparece por trás do Electrico, ea borda do edifício perfeitamente na borda do Electrico é magistral! Muito boa composição!

Espero que você tenha uma boa noite!

Parabéns e um grande abraço!

Olá, Teresa!

Que bom ver uma foto tão bem feita, minha amiga.
Você me deixou muito alegre agora... andei nesses "eléctricos" aí em Lisboa, e gostei muito :o)
Excelente ponto de vista, querida! Meus parabéns e obrigado por compartilhar.

Grande abraço,
Bruno Santana


The tones of this shot, as well as your point of view are really what pulled me in. You got fantastic details, and the lighting is fairly good as well. Nice note, angles, and title.



Hi Teresat,
Beautiful presentation of colors of Lisbonne,
Very nice point of view and details,
Excellent POV. and perpective .
very well taken and done.

Now what a crop Teresat , the side of the street car aligned on its tracks curving along the way by the cathedral , hum watch that bend in the road there , a diffrent angle , a different POV , an unusual position that makes me want to know what lies ahead in front of that 'Electrico ' is there an intersection , pedestrians croosing , another tram heading up this direction and there is that yellow dominating the scene of course , Lisbon is a treasure chest of photo opportunities and you got one here my friend, tfs ,
Have a good week Teresat,

Também as cores dessas palavras tão bem inventadas, fado e saudade.
Grande foto, Teresa!
O abraço do Raimundo

hi Teresa

I have come to recognize that this is your style, giving abstract of the train and yet showing a part of the city, rail track and buildings which really make your thought of searching for a composition very interesting, it is more to an art of shapes and forms that you are showing, an extract of city life which you see and yet you wish to block out other part of the city you dont wish me to see :))

I like it.

Hi Teresat

Smart choice of a vertical format with a pleasnt diffused light, & excellent sharpness. I like the muted colours & curved lines of the street. Tfs!

Bom dia Teresa,

Uma bela imagem na qual destaco o encontro da lateral do bonde com a catedral.
Lembrei-me do tempo em que andava de bonde pelas ruas do Rio de Janeiro.
Parabéns, mais uma vez.
Grande abraço,

Hi Teresat,
Great texture and mood of city. I liked how did you use light

Hello my dear Teresa,

The yellow cable car and the facade of the cathedral appear to connect in this composition. A metaphor of life, our faith can sometimes be in transit. I love the muted yellow. A highly artistic scene, grey winter is evident, but soon spring will be here. My best regards.


Ciao Teresat

Que sorte a de voces, voces ainda tem os Bondes,
que circulam pela cidade, os nossos aqui são
apenas turisticos e 2 só.
Eu gosto de como o amarelo deixa a atmosfera do local,
um bom tiro da fachada do bonde, a curva das linhas
e a bela fachada da Se, como um pintura.
Aqui nós tambem temos um Catedral com o nome de Sé,
na cidade de São Paulo.
Seu composto são capturados e muito agradável para olhar.


Hola Teresat
Buen encuadre de este conocido tranvia amarillo , buen color y luz , y detalle de la iglesia del fondo y los railes ,una buena y original composicion
Buen trabajo
un saludo

I love this !
It's so alive that I can hear the tram.
Superb colours, superb geometry !


Interesting combination of urban elements, Teresat. I like the interaction between the lines of the streetcar and the church. Good idea to bring them together in a thight vertical framing. It underlines the density typical of a city.
Whereas I like your colour treatment, I'm just asking myself what you did to the sky: I notice artefacts (spots) close to the upper border of your photo: as a result of postprocessing?
TFS & kind regards,

Hello Teresat, beautiful tones in this one, I love the metallic effect you got all over. Great warm light and good tight crop, very appealing, well done!


Good composition and an interestingly desaturated feel to this shot - somehow minimal, but very telling about the city in the clues it offers: the tram, the curving street, and the cathedral.

It looks a little as if the upper part of the cathedral was overexposed and you had to dull it down, but you've done that reasonably well and the overall impact is excellent.


Buenos días Teresa, es una hermosa fotografía. El tema es sencillo pero dinámico. Los colores como siempre,en tus trabajos, reflejan pasión por la vida, calidez y ternura. Felicidades.

Olá Teresat,

Excellent photo and composition.
Successful presentation of the colors of Lisbon.
Amazing point of view.
Beautiful light and colors tones.
Very good crop, too.

Hola Teresat,
Infelizmente, apenas uma coisa que nós não realizá-lo em Lisboa ... foi apenas uma caminhada com o número tremvai famoso amarelo 28. Por falta de tempo.
Espero que você volte para Lisboa e, em seguida, para cumprir o meu desejo e sacesta.
Um jogador maravilhoso e organização da imagem, parabéns.

dear Teresa
this tone of color is so attractive for my eyes and soul,
it is moderately old and mildly nostalgic,
the old stone church, curved rails, and windows of train make illusionary perspective for my mind, in my mind,
thank you for your excellent picture,

Ola Teresat! Amazing shot. Superb ideal, splendid effect. Good composition, crazy and sophisticated composition, very original. Saude!

Bonjour Teresat.
Un angle de prise de vue originale qui donne un bon aspect à cette image qui semble être sortie tout droit d’une revue.
Bonne soirée.

Ola Teresa!

Boa ilustração de Lisboa e das suas cores, estes electricos sao fantásticos, passei uma boa parte da minha vida a andar neles, principalmente no 18!! Também gosto do angulo que escolheste e sem duvida que venha o verão e o céu azul!

Hello, Teresa -
I love the feel of this image - warm colors of old Europe, and the POV looking across the side of the angled street car leads the eye through the image to the cathedral and sky beyond. Wonderful eye to capture this fine lovely scene.

Dear Teresat,
this photo brings a lot of things in mind, the history, the image of the old city, the mood in the winter and so on...The pov is extraordinary, it makes us possible to see only a part of the place while as if intentionally hiding the rest from us. Wonderful tone, very interesting light.
Best regards,

hi teresa,
lovely colours and great POV and focus
regards, biljana

You've got that special way of composing an image. I find that you always manage to do wonders with ordinary, daily life scene. There is a strong feeling that come out of this picture, make me want to be there, travel and see new places. Exposure and technical aspect are as always, well handled.

I trully love this frame. Cheers and happy shooting.

Hello Teresa,

Very beautiful colors you captured in Lisbon, your photo is full of atmosphere, excellent composed, also very effective POV.

Hi Teresa,
I like much this close-up! Interesting mix of attenuated colors and shining effect . Excellent composition suggesting a nice perspective with the curved rails. Bravo! Annie

Hi,Teresat.Nice capture of old Lisbon from a interesting angle with good depth of field, colors and sharpness. Cheers and TFS.

Hoi Teresat,
Timeless image you show us.
The design/architecture and the crop makes it mysterious.

Simplicity is genius ! Simplicity of colours and composition Great pov with the curve of the tramline Nice intersection of lines creating the strong composition Nice work

A very neat capture of this street. Your vertical style crop and choice of only showing the back half of the street car is a very artistic approach. Very nice work!


Hi Teresa! Beautiful tones and colors of Lisabon. You have right. Good catch. Regards Csabi
