Sabes como é... a minha câmara deixa muita rapariga tímida...

E se fores avisa que eu acompanho-te. Costuma ser por volta de 20 de Agosto.

Nice shot. The only question I have is in the depth of field. The center lady almost looks like she was superimposed onto the actual photo. I know this is not the case. Still it makes for a great shot.

I understand what you're trying to say. Perhaps it the sharpening applied do the image or a little more generous push on the Clarity slider in Lightroom that accentuated that perception. But, it's negligible at worst. Nonetheless, it was a well-thought comment and I thank you for that.

Oh, and for the favourite too :)

It is a very good festival. It happens around August 20 every year, if you're interested. I have more photos of previous years in the gallery, if you want to see more.

This shot is so beautiful! I'm from Portugal and I love this festival. Some of those gold pieces have more than 200 years old and have been in those women families for ages. This is a really good shot!

Eu sei. Vou lá quase todos os anos. Embora confesso que podiam mudar as coisas um bocadinho de ano para ano. Mas creio que para além das peças que de facto estão nas famílias, muitas são emprestadas (ou pelo menos eram) pelos ourives locais, como forma de promoção do negócio.

E obrigado pelo comentário :)
