  2. I can easily recognize your photos, Belita. They all have certain quality of lighting.
    All three are very nice captures. I like sculptures, so I say the second one is the best.

  3. Love those photos. The little girl is enjoying herself in the "rapids". You have a president's palace? The things I learn, I love the fountain of Zeus having a shower. the bird is just wonderful, such a good action photo.

    1. It may sound strange but the official residence of our president is in a national palace built in 1555, called Belem Palace, and formerly used by the then Royal Family. Of course it's not so imponent as Buckhingham Palace but considering the modest dimension of Portugal is a Palace anyway. All in all is the residence of the Head of the State and, in my modest knowledge of your mother tongue, I presume, it can be called Palace. Please correct me if I am wrong...

  4. Hi Belita!! Did you have a problem posting? I noticed you deleted you first attempt and started again.

    Three lovely shots, as always!! That's a very cute one of the little girl playing in the sea. A beautifully ornate fountain in the second shot. My favourite is the third shot. I love how the shot divides between the flowing water and the wall, with the gull being the centre of attention. It looks like he's enjoying his paddle in the water.

  5. Yes, I had. My first attempt was not successful: photos were not aligned and the words were totally out of place. I tried several times to adjust but could not, the reason why I decided to delete the 1st post and do it again from scratch. Thanks, Mitch, for your words. I have not many photos of water in motion and those three seemed to be acceptable...
