A View of Rio

Not representative of the whole city, obviously, but it's quite a classic view. The Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) at sunset, with the christmas tree all lighted up. The tree also briefly plays christmas songs every 30 minutes throughout the night, which is nice. At 9 pm every Saturday they put on a show with fireworks. It's a shame about the grey clouds, really, but not much I can do about them. D:
More pictures from this shoot will be gradually uploaded for the next few days. :)
Canon 7D.

I love it. Seriously. The first word that comes to mind when i look at this is: beautiful. I really love the colors and how you captured it at the right moment. I'm a fan of sunsets and sunrises hence that makes this photo appeal to me even more lol. I love how all the lights are reflected onto the water... It creates a sort of calm/romantic atmosphere. I honestly don't know how you could have made it any better so i have no negative words to write here. Just keep up the good work and have a nice day!

Parece que só sendo daqui pra saber que essa vista clássica não representa a cidade inteira. Eu fico entediado de ver mais do mesmo em questão de fotografia, mas essa foto ficou muito, muito boa. As nuvens cinzas fazem um contraste natural muito legal que divide o céu laranja e azul sobre as águas escuras. Ótima foto. =)

Eu tento variar um pouco... Esse trabalho meu é bastante antigo. Mais trabalhos meus estão aqui: www.amaliabastos.co.uk
Críticas sempre bem vindas. Obrigada! :)

Antigo, mas continua sendo lindo. Foi mais um pensamento sobre o que eu vejo da minha cidade pela internet e pelo mundo do que uma crítica direta a você, entende? Também é compreensível o porquê de uma vista dessas chamar tanta atenção.

Eu já tinha dado uma olhada na sua galeria, obrigado pelo link. =D

Entendi, eu acho também que várias vistas acabam virando "clichês". Mas nossa paisagem aqui no Rio é muito bonita.
Obrigada!

Wow! This is a great shot, but I'd also like to say that I think the gray clouds add more to the picture, in my view. ^-^
