A day after my wife's operation, I got up early and headed down to the Vasco da Gama bridge. I was greeted with this sunset. It's like it was telling me that everything was going to be all right.

Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca) is a cape which forms the westernmost extent of mainland Portugal and continental Europe (wikipedia). I took this shot in January in Sintra (district of Lisbon) after one of my wifes radiotherapy. I think it helped cheer her up. Anyway, it was one of those days that it finally stopped raining and we could enjoy a semi-beautiful sunset.

Can you believe this was actually used as a defence tower. This 16th century tower was equipped with cannon to blow enemy ship right out of the water. It's cool how back then everything was done with class. I got this one just before my wife went to do her chemo. She was asleep in the car right below those trees on the left.
This is actually a stitched image. So 6 images processed separately in photomatix then did the usual clean up by mixing in the originals and then some color correcting. After that stitched the final result and did some sharpening.

The Mafra National Palace. This is one of my favorite Portuguese monuments. When entering the town of Mafra you're greeted with this massive and beautiful structure. Inside there are so many rooms that it took me 10 minutes to go from one end to the other. It has inside one of the most beautiful libraries built with rare wood and marble floors. There are even bats living in the library. They are kept in boxes during the day and set free at night to eat insect that may destroy the books. This is also The last king of Portugal spent his last night here before fleeing into exile following the proclamation of the republic. But the coolest story linked to the palace is that giant rats, capable of eating people, inhabit the lower levels of the palace. I love this place.
So on a foggy summer night at around midnight, I grabbed my camera and took 3 shot from -2 to +2. I used photomatix to join all 3 shots and then in Photoshop blended in the original photos. Some color corrections were used and also some sharpening ( high pass filter) and that's about it.
