I take this one in the beautiful city of Santarém.

I post one with PP work in the workshop,just for fun.

Santarém is the capital of Ribatejo and is located amidst fertile fields. Agriculture and cattle breeding are its main resources. It has been inhabited since the Neolithic Era. The Romans conquered Santarém and changed the name to Scalabis Castrum. In the 7th century the people began to call the settlement Santa Irene or Santa Iria. The Moors took it in the 8th century. King Afonso Henriques conquered it in 1147 and gave it a charter in 1179. It was here that King Pedro I had the murderers of Inês de Castro executed. King João II was acclaimed King here in 1477.
In the 16th century, after the Battle of Alcácer Quibir, Santarém was the last town to cede to Spanish Occupation and the first to rise up in 1640 in the War of Restoration.
Santarém was elevated to a city in 1869. It is the Gothic Capital of Portugal and its grand monuments attest to its History and mystique.

Ola fernando

I like the tight cropping & framing. The vivid yellow, red, & blue, compliment each other. Parabens!

Atractivos colores. ¿por qué nos resultan tan interesantes las ventanas y puertas? No lo sé, pero me gustan. Esta tiene tu toque personal que la realza y da mayor belleza.
Buen trabajo.

Nice vibrant colors in this shot Fernando. Looks like a painting. Nice POV . I like to see that piece of paper hanging on the wall.

Hi Fernando,
Looks like we have window day today! Yours is quite different from mine though... Very colourful and from a different time... Beautiful and attractive colours, appealing composition... Well done
Pablo -

very nice shot fernando,great colors.good composition.well done


Hi Fernando; these colours are just great; perhaps you show too much here. At least the ceiling or the lower blue part are to much.
Perhaps I try a workshop tonight.
I like this original better than your workshopversion; it's more natural and pure

What a beautiful combination of such vivid colors! Nicely composed and very well seen!

I love the sense of texture as well, this is stunning!

olá Fernando!
Acima de tudo gosto muito deste colorido.são cores vibrantes e electrizantes. gosto das fotos que retratem janelas e portas. esta janela não é gótica, mas tem encanto.
Bom trabalho!

Hi Fernando, this is splendid! I love the weathered look of it and the vivid colours. Not to mention your good eye for composition and tight crop that works so well here.

Also I like your ws but I think that finally I still prefer this one :)

I'd like to see more like these :o)

Take care, Yan

Olá Fernando,
Uma janelinha bem portuguesa, um bocadinho mal tratada para variar, com aquele tratamento que só tu sabes.
Bom trabalho.
Um abraço,

I like the strong vivid colours, and sharply focussed details, they work well with the simple composition. Great product.
