Portugal Part II – Sintra, Batalha, Porto

0

No worries I’m not gonna post all the approx 1000 photos, I decided to combine the places else I’d end up with 8 parts *phew* no that’s not gonna work. I think one thing I struggle with to select and I also seem to have a different taste than others or maybe the majority.

I also noticed I may be to harsh in my post-processing, I have to train to go more natural look though I like contrasty photos.

Here we go Sintra, one of our favorite stops, Batalha and Porto.
