    My Golden Town" - This one was a great local success back in 2008

    Among other things, Oporto is known by the local river called as "Douro", which in portuguese means "golden".
    One cold day, back in January 2008, immediately after purchasing my "new" 50mm f/1.4, I went out and took some shots. This one was the best of the day and someone from the local cityhall saw it at PBase and asked me to publish it at their monthly magazine.
    I think that the golden tones achieved, are a nice tribute to the name of the river:

    Excellent shot, Rui. I'm sure it looked good printed in the magazine.

    Other than the fact that 'The Body Shop' has managed to get into the old town.....!

    Another excellent image. It is very clear that you love your home town. I don't think your images could be created otherwise.

    Beautiful. Love the contrast of the satiny water with the stone walls/buildings. Thank you.
