The best one of your projet for me, but at the same time the most different to the others. All the pictures have a great quality, in composition, lights, colours and postprocesing, but the atmosphere is a little bit unreal. In this picture too. The atmosphere is as a dream but it works perfectly.There are practically nothing that you can recognice, but all the picture together make me to imagine and dream. In the other ones, I say: Yes, is great, but it's an unreal landscape, a great and beauty landscape, but an unreal landscape. This one is much more. One of my best...

Hasta la vista,

Hello Luis,

Fantastic composition, with so great colors (orange is my favotrite color !). Simple, and superb !

Like many have said before ... your colorfull landscape shots are a nice add-on to the vast majority of B&W streetshot action around. I'm here for the streetshot action though but i do apreciate a nice breakthrough of raylights and blue skies once in a while.

You master this techinque like few ... in Portugal we have some good landscape photographers doing this king of style. But somehow i feel that your work is more pure ... more genuine ...

No rocks in the FG?:) Its a beautiful one Luis, not my favorite coloristically from your landscapes, I think I prefer those beautiful blues, but I love the mysterious mood of this ever present misty water. Fantastic how those wooden poles appear in this slightly misty world.

Luis, this shot as most of your others again is a testament to your soul, if I can say such a thing... so beautiful, life-affirming, filled with a sense of awe. The beautiful orangy cast that envelops it is equally embracing my being... a joy to look at, a beauty that you can capture with all the skills so that it not only gives back the scenery but also fills me wiht a mood of gentleness and peace... you manage to capture beauty without making it just a touch saccharine that would take its power away... superb work, Luis.
Bom dia from a huge mountain of snow

Bom Dia, Luis.
One word for this: "Materpiece", my favorite by far of the series, partly for the monochromatic unity of tones as well as the minimalist, spare composition. This is wondrous work, my friend.  Truly (and I don't even care for landscapes!)
A fav. yes.
