Beautiful country, 10 days was way too little time!

Just wandering around in Lisbon, then around Sintra, to finally settle for a good time spent in Madeira.

Magical.

Here are some coloreds:

I am traveling to Lisbon on Tuesday. Trying to decide what equipment to take. I need to travel light. What lens did you use the most. Those are great photos!

I used extensively my entire kit, but mostly the 24-70, which is my workhorse in almost any possible situation.

If possible, I would suggest to get a tele lens as well, as you have plenty of open space and opportunities to shoot.

Lots of wonderful images in here, very nice landscapes. Hard to choose a favorite!

Hello Bogdan,

One picture gets 8/10 points of my scale: your staircase in B&W!
In my book, your best picture. Too bad the keystone tool was not used. Also
the light tower (first in colour) was ignored by the keystone tool

This series tells me that you use you camera rather well but your lenses
were not brought to full contribution. Did you have them along all the time?

I like your tonal range rendition in most cases, and the B&W Madonna show
fantastic geological formation and I would like to know more about it.

It seems the weather was very fine and that you had a good time!

Thank you all for your nice comments!

@kodiak, wow, thanks a lot of your critique, that's exactly what I was looking for :)
I use Lr4 and the perspective correction options are few, if any. The staircase image though, there is hardly a perspective distortion there, that's how the door / opening actually looked!

I did carry all my gear throughout my trips, what do you mean I could have used the lenses better? In some cases (staircase), it was impractical to change lenses, as I was part of a huge, fast moving crowded queue wading its way through a castle.

As for the Madonna, it was in this rock opening in Ribeira da Janela, don't know much about the actual formation, I just "envisioned" the B&W stone pattern working its way to underline the statue.

The very relative value of a critique!

I'm new at the Nikon Café and I know no one yet. For me, it is difficult (and
rather bold) to appreciate the works presented here.
Nevertheless, in your case, I can appreciate your involvement by your equip-
ment listing and your level by the work you presented.

Maybe it would be time for you to move to a more professional RAW converter
that could support both your effort in capturing and work in rendering such good
photographs! Your equipment suggests and you practice level implies the move.

In my critique, the crowd was not a parameter since I could seen nor feel its
presence. You know about the crowd so you are in a better position to temper
my comment.

As for the Madonna, it was in this rock opening in Ribeira da Janela,
don't know much about the actual formation,
It looks like an ancient underground river or so… but I'm so curious that, with
the name you provide, I will do some homework. =)

This decision was right, tonal range and lines convergence prove it!

Have a good day…
