Photographer's Note

This is one of the many nice little corners in Pontevedra. It's Praza da Lea (Firewood Square), in the old quarter. The name comes from the product which was sold here many years ago. The "cruceiro" (stone cross) in the centre is of the XV century. This square has become one of the hot spots for having a snack and a wine in its terraces (which people do even in winter).
This shot was the second attempt (the first was shaky) with ISO100. For postprocessing, some basic edition in Camera Raw (the white balance is as shot, though), and then curves, cropping and sharpening in Photoshop. Lines have been straightened (with ShiftN) due to lens distortion.
Thanks for watching and for your comments!

**********
Este es uno de los muchos rincones encantadores de Pontevedra. Se trata de la Praza da Lea, en el casco antiguo. Antiguamente se venda lea aqu, de ah su nombre. El cruceiro en el centro de la plaza es del siglo XV. La plaza es uno de los sitios ms solicitados para tomarse un vino y un pincho en las terrazas (y lo hacen incluso en invierno).
Esta foto es el segundo intento (el primero sali movido) a ISO100. La edicin consisti en unos ajustes bsicos en Camera Raw (manteniendo el balance de blancos de la toma), y despus curvas, recorte y enfoque en Photoshop. Enderec las lneas (con ShiftN) por la distorsin de la lente.
Gracias por pararte y por tus comentarios!
