Each one of these is perfect.
I chose number 2 as my favorite, but the colors and captures of all of them are just as appreciated. I lived in Porto for years, and I walked across the lower level of the old bridge to V.N. de Gaia to enjoy the Port wine caves. You have really brought back wonderful memories of my life there. Thank you.

What can I say that the 64 previous comments have not already said? What can I add to all the compliments you received for this magnificent set?
Each of these shots has something of wonderful: the first is a beautiful panorama allowed to see just a small strip of sea and as a kind of pyramid gradually shifts the attention towards its tip; the second is spectacular in the simplicity of its composition and the sky full of clouds makes it so attractive dramatically; the third one is a fantastic colorful puzzle; the fourth one has a cool tone that I can almost feel the fresh breeze ripples that slightly the sea; the fifth one has the typical effect caused by the use flattened of the telephoto lens, the last one is absolutely unique and spectacular. You are able to freeze the flight of the seagull by blurring the background so as to isolate it in the shot.
I bow to your skill.

How in the world did I miss this Christa??? Such a wonderful set. I love every one of them. The colored ones are so vivid and sharp and the "uncolored" are so expressive. They are all just so artistic and beautiful!

Bonitas fotos, dramáticas! Belo dia para este tipo de fotografia, as cores ganham uma profundidade distinta! Gosto especialmente da 2, da 3 e da 5. Infelizmente conheço muito mal o Porto! É uma vergonha, mas só lá fui duas ou três vezes! Boas fotos cara amiga. :)

C'est tout simplement superbe ! Pour la 4, aurais-tu fait un effet HDR (réussi d'ailleurs) ? Le noir et blanc renforce le côté surréaliste du ciel en 2. Et j'aime beaucoup la mouette de la 4...comme toujours :-) !

c'est vraiment une belle ville Porto!! je regrette de ne pas l'avoir visité l'or de mon voyage au Portugal...mais tes photos me donnent envie de le faire bientôt !
les façades sont merveilleuses dommage qu'il y a autant d'antennes de télévision!!
la 3 et la 5 sont mes préférées mais toutes méritent une exclamation!
bravo et bon dimanche mon amie!

Ah, Christa un set d'une merveilleuse nostalgie. Un mélange de couleurs sourdes et de lumière donnée par un ciel gris. Tout cela est enchanteur. Porto est magnifique ainsi et la 2 part dans mes favoris
