Photographer's Note

One of the most underrated things to do in photography is pointing your camera lens up. It still surprises me how few people choose to use this very simple yet effective technique.

I'm sure most of you recognise this as the famous arch in Lisbon, the Rua Augusta Arch.

Completed in 1875, which isn't very old by European Standards, it was constructed as a symbol of recovery from the destruction of the 1755 Earthquake.

I would highly recommend spending some time here and exploring the arch and its finer details. Most people do not know this, but you can actually go UP the arch for city views.

For this photo I'm standing directly underneath it pointing my camera vertical. In the WS are two other variations.

Hope you like this architectural shot, and appreciate it because its very difficult to compose. Also, trying to get all the lines to 'line up' properly and to avoid distortions, its actually very frustrating at times, and it takes several tries to get it just right.
