Excellent choice to include the graffiti wall in this image. It adds a dimension and an interest that would have been lost had you cropped this and made it simply a beautiful photo of boats in the harbor.

I love the juxtaposition of the grafitti and the old world charm of the quiet boats on the water.

A very nice photo with a good composition and beautiful details and colors.

Ah Grafittis ! I was king of upset with them in Lisbonne. Too many to my point of view and Paris is "good" to it too.

Quiet evening of looking at graffiti, boats, the ocean - what could be better? Bon weekend!

Nice and quiet scene, including the graffiti you made it more real and quite similar to some place here.
Excellent shot, perfectly composed.

I agree with BrattCat. The graffiti adds such depth to the image which you could have simply cropped off. I am sooo glad that you made the choice you did.

Doesn't surprise me though!

Awesome photo JM! Love it!

I'm going to disagree with most commenters. I hate the graffiti! It's just plain ugly.

The rest of the photo is very beautiful.

But all I can see is the graffiti.

What a shame that morons have to do this all over the world.

Because of all the gorgeous photos you've been posting, I've been secretly hoping that Oeiras would be free of these ugly graffiti. Oh well. As long as there are people, I guess…

Still, it's a magnificent view!

I like contrast between the tranquility of the scene and the anxiety on the wall. Excellent photo.
