Urban landscapes

A view from Circulo de bellas artes terrace in Madrid.

It’s a place I’ve never been before, until recently, in a visit I did as a tourist. Once you go abroad, you look back at familiar places in a completely different way. The blue sky and golden light in the sunset was amazing. A bit of air pollution typical in a big city is visible, in the horizon, giving those dirty orange colours. What other places have you visited after years and found somehow different?

    Great light. Since you say in your about me page that you are learning photography, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way. There is a huge amount of empty space on the top of the image that I would get rid of unless you are trying to publish for a magazine cover (this may be what you were doing). In any case I look forward to seeing more of Madrid through your eyes.
