    The cigarette, the long extension of the slender hands, the softness, the eyes, the warm protective hand curled around, what more can i ask..

    who kisses her lover, legs crossed with a cigarette dangling, man this one is good !

    a fav.

    Hey Ann,

    Another balanced composition, though i think this is a crop i think the momentum of the photo is to the left, the only balance i see is the tree trunk leaning to the right ;)

    I completely agree with you, the blue robe is being replaced with sweatshirts and trousers. At least the guides should be a part of it. When its not about the photography one just needs to sit and absorb all the little pleasures of desert life. you want things to be in the right place, you want to see the blue turban..

    How was your night at the tents, the oasis or did your guide find a high dune below which you had spent the night ?

    The doors and their grandeur, rich details and the subject to factor in the scale, people say you need to find good light, but you have found good shadows here which makes the photo..

    Now that i see this photo, i think this is a stronger composition that the other one.

    Love the play of geometry and light.

    Whenever i see a ride in venice waters i think of mu uncle who had an attack of asthma while on the boat, apparently the water triggered it. but hey, a nice way to kickstart the wedding celebrations.

    Looks like traffic here, is honking allowed ? Somehow tourists aren't my cup of tea, hence i end up going to places during off season :)

    Standing on the bridge could be a good way to relieve that stress.

    hahaha conflicting stories, but hey...story telling is a part of moroccan culture ! Who know they might tell me that the australians left because the locals said that there were Djinns in the house, in the walls, in the water. Aren't they obsessed with the Djinns..

    again you have waited for your subject, imperative. You have a lot patience Klaudio !

    photography and patience go shoulder to shoulder.

    Yes the ride from Fes to volubilis was great after all the desert sand in merzouga and hustle of the city. there was a distinct reservoir on the way and the green pastures with sheep grazing was quite a treat and the unavoidable sunflower field.

    i think the colds contributed to the subtle patterns in light and dark, the green mosaic just becomes more appealing, not just another pretty countryside photo..

    nice work from the bus :)

    aaah this is a good one, with the sunlight pouring in, and the reflection, creates such an enigma, is the green moss ? or paint ? Wonder the acoustics must be incredible around here. takes me back to the basilica cisterns in istanbul..

    i think the inclusion of the subject was imperative but most places in morocco i found it difficult to find people, places like theses, hence making some photos a bit flat, like the roman ruins in volubilis..

    Such an exotic location, Deniz had pushed me to visit this place, am glad that you did, love the composition you have made here, which starts from the bottom of the frame, keeps us connected right to the top of the frame.

    you could have tried going a bit closer, that would omitted the white concerte on the right and the frame would have started with ropes and not the knot, that could be interesting too, but theoretically, could be otherwise.

    Lovely. How was fish in Essaouira..?

    It was not high season when i went, hence getting a photo like one was difficult. you have nailed the exposure here and the horizon too which tends to be slanted most of the time. Looks like late evening, the lazy long shadows. I can see a good three groups in the frame.

    How was the camel ride, did you sore any part of your body ? ;)
