Excellent contrast, the 'edges' are great. Have I told you how much I like terracotta?

Sharon said...

Great contrast between the blue building and the surrounding buildings and that gorgeous sky.

The sky, the building, the composition: make for quite an image.

I love the light blue and yellow colors! And the cobblestones aren't bad either....

All my favorite colours in one shot JM, beautifully composed to get in all that detail!

Superb! I love the blue door, almost the same colour like a sky!

I totally agree with Woody up there. Yesterday, I was visiting my family and had my laptop with me and showed them this blog. Everyone was captivated and enchanted with your images of Portugal. If the country let you loose with an ad campaign, I'm sure you'd be even absolutely flooded with tourists :-D

The only thing missing from this photo is the artist who should e painting this scene.

The colors, the shapes, the cobblestones, just fabulous.

I love the pastel color. A very nice shade of blue and reminds me so much of the Mediterranean.

Andrew said...

A beautiful image...

What a fantastic composition of colours and shapes. Even the drying towels tone in.

Jack said...

The shadows and cropping turn this image from bland into a fascinating one.

Joanne said...

Virginia said...

I've decided that every color you show us I love! THe tile roof sets it off.

I love those homes -- so colorful -- I could live there!

Bob Crowe said...

If I had to guess, I couldn't tell is this was Portugal, or maybe Spain, or the La Boca neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The house color makes me wonder if it has a view of the sea.

Ooo, that balcony would be a wonderfully private sun-trap. Good book, Bach wafting through the window, chilled sauvignon blanc ... bliss.

Blue is one of my favorites.

Randy said...

What a great combination of colors. Beautiful blue sky too.

VP said...

The right color for that building...

Dina said...

Blue is good for keeping away the evil eye. No?

The sharp shadow tells me it's hot. Nice composition, José!
