Late in October and late in afternoon,the sunbeds were empty but lot of natives were in coffees shops and pastry shops enjoying the endless view of the Atlantic Ocean, as some surfers were still in the sea.

serp2000 (33061) 2013-01-15 0:04
The note is very informative, Casablanca for me is the old classic moview, first of all. (I remember a big poster on the cinema wall in my hometown). And I like this panoramic composition too, fine details.
krzychu30 (12605) 2013-01-15 0:39
the weather you had and the lighting conditions were superb background for a magnificent photo.Just love the play of light&shade in the foreground,which adds a lot of charm to the composition.Also wide,panoramic format of the image suits here really well.The picture has also delightful,vivid colors,superb clarity and contrast.Well done!

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Très belle lumière dorée venant caresser les bâtiments.
Le cadrage est fort bien présenté pour nous donner des envies d'évasion.
Très bonne journée.

A long beach curve in Cazablanca, well taken a siesta time as no one out there, or maybe too cold autumn, Danos.
Looks as a nice resort hotel, and the sea invite to take a stroll to town.
Romano46 (11393) 2013-01-15 5:05
la foto colpisce immediatamente per i suoi colori molto vivaci e caldi.
Complimenti per aver saputo cogliere un attimo così affascinante.
saxo042 (33878) 2013-01-15 5:10
Interesting buildings here along the sea, beachhuts? They add very strong and eye-catching red and yellow colours against the deep blue sea. A very attractive picture and a very pleasant scene.
Fis2 (76922) 2013-01-15 5:16
Interesting view, interesting light.
Good frame and curious colors.
Photo has climate.
Have a nice afternoon
Noel_Byrne (13234) 2013-01-15 5:38
A beautiful view of this amazing city. Its strange, for such a well known place, I have seen very few images from here, so a pleasure to see this. I love how the building leads into the ocean like this, and the towers that dot the cityscape.
All the best
pierrefonds (50972) 2013-01-15 6:45
The distance between the beach and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of a section of the hotel. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
eldancer1 (20728) 2013-01-15 9:45
I like the way the late afternoon is giving this beautiful scene a warm golden colors. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
cornejo (22452) 2013-01-15 11:08
Hello Danos, I love this great shot of the beautiful and interesting view of the sea and the Atlantic coast of this famous city. A beautiful and interesting image, captured with good technique and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.

πολυ εντυπωσιακη η προοπτικη τοσο του κτηριου που εισβαλλει στο καδρο απο την κατω δεξια γωνια οσο και της απεραντης ακτης. Μια πολυ ενδθαφερουσα φωτογραφια αντιθεσεων μεταξυ φωτος-σκιας και μεταξυ θερμων και ψυχρων χρωματων. Θαυμασια η διαχειριση του φωτος και η αποδοση των χρωματων. Η κινηση της θαλασσας ειναι απολαυστικη. Συγχαρητηρια και ευχαριστω!
Να εισαι καλα, καλο βραδυ,
jlbrthnn (79789) 2013-01-15 12:22
Composition directs the sight towards the horizon. A very good idea, a good framing and excellent depth. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
adramad (30865) 2013-01-15 13:11
A splendid composition, with this great view of the Costa Atlantica at this point, a shame these buildings on the edge of the beach, which break the beauty of nature, to the advantage of the apartment building.
Very nice this evening light, which gives this warm color.
Have a nice day.
kato (9500) 2013-01-15 18:22
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the two-story building extended in the direction of marine and calm/blue Atlantic ocean. The whole is harmonized beautifully by fine color combination with blue, yellow and red. It's a good taste for the shadow projected to the roof and color layers of sea. And, the lighthouse which is visible to the long distance of the coastline draws out an additional good effect in this image.
fabbs99 (11030) 2013-01-15 18:38
Quite a colorful shot with excellent sharpness and clarity.It is a very creative photo, well seen and executed-well.Very well done.
mvdisco (17112) 2013-01-15 19:38
Hi Danos, Bonjour,
A beautiful point of view and seascape from Casablanca in Maroc,
Beautiful contrast, light and sharpness,
Nice notes of the big city and perpective of the place,
shevchenko (18725) 2013-01-15 23:10
Good perspective effect, lovely blue sky and blue sea, beautiful wide coast and long waves, there is full with relaxing feel, should be an ideal place for vacation, thanks for sharing.
jurek1951 (37040) 2013-01-15 23:56
Another good perspective with a good view, good sharpness and contrast of textures.
wolf38 (29116) 2013-01-16 2:06
Hello Danos. Strong colors, great light. The Panorama is a good choice. In this season, everything seems quiet. Overall, a good shot.

You show with fine details and golden colors a piece of by-the-sea Casablanca in wich the hotel guests can enjoy the blue ocean as well as the wind-carried echoes of prayers emitted from minarets located in town!
josepmarin (56471) 2013-01-16 10:05
I like the weak light of the late afternoon and the warmth of the tonalities that offers us.
The facilities of the beach and the deep sight of the coastal landscape, between the light and the shadow, form a part of a very attractive, brilliant composition and with a great chromatic power.
A splendid work, my friend.
marina7 (7160) 2013-01-16 11:08
great view of the Atlantic, its wild and beautiful nature really impressed me when I stayed there as well as the dark navy, almost black color. The yellow and red building adds contrast to the shot and the perspective is nice.
nikkitta (8885) 2013-01-16 15:50
What a great capture of Casablanca place of a very famous film, like the panoramic format with some parts with sun and other in shadows, what are the kind of towers at the BG, mosques or a bridge
Greetings and TFS
Silvio1953 (105381) 2013-01-17 7:39
Ciao Danos, great POV on wonderful city with fantastic sea view, excellent exposure, beautiful clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
amaryllis (32051) 2013-01-17 9:13
une belle photo avec une lumière douce en arrière plan et une belle perspective et au premier plan l'ombre
gildasjan (39558) 2013-01-17 10:16
Une belle image entre ombre et lumière avec ici une bonne harmonie de couleurs entre les teintes chaudes du premier plan et le bleu de la mer et celui du ciel.
UlfE (14112) 2013-01-17 10:42
I wish you would have had the opportunity to take this photo a little earlier in the evening because of the area in the shade in the right bottom corner. But you did the very best of the situation. The composition is brillant. I love the stong diagonal line and the horizon line a 1/3 and very attractive lighting in most of the photo. Good idea to put your signature, that is lighting up, in the darkest area of the photo. TFS and have a nice evening!
lpi (4760) 2013-01-17 12:57
quelle belle lumière!
et le point de vu est excellent!
zoomer (4225) 2013-01-17 18:31
Hi Danos,an impressive panorama with clear rich colors and spectacular DOF.Great photo,great lens.Best wishes,Wolf.
mirosu (8046) 2013-01-18 2:27
The colors and lighting in this image are the most compelling and captivating aspects. I love the deep cobalt blue of the sea waters, as well as the rich colored light of the fading sun light on the building. The browns and purples also blends well with the colors and provides a good deep feeling to the image.
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-01-18 6:18
An eyecatching seaview, good compo well set-off by the diagonal that leads in. You have made much of the fg interests as stong focal. Good clarity and well managed exposure, rich in colors, detail and sharpness are second to none. A pleasure to view. Well done. TFS
macjake (45574) 2013-01-18 23:27
its really cool to see this famous city in this viewpoint.
I bet this angle and composition has never been presented to us on TE before!
love the long depth of waves flowing onto the beach and the golden light.
kasianowak (3474) 2013-01-19 4:46
Great scenery! Beautiful light and warm colours.
ChrisJ (91200) 2013-01-19 4:57
I like the wide angled, panoramic format & the superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow facade of the building. Good perspective & sharpness. And well composed using the rule of thirds, too. Tfs!
fabianoleite (9162) 2013-01-19 11:02
And what a fantastic view. I like these strong colors in the forefront and the distant landscape as well. Good work, congratulations!
gus72 (3382) 2013-01-19 19:14
Hi Danos !!
interesting lay out of the sunbeds.... I never seen anything like that.
You took the shot late in the afternoon.... and that makes for an interesting gradient of the light.
POV and colours are perfect.
Very nice image.
thebest (4114) 2013-01-19 19:37
A very nice Ocean view from the famous coastline of Casablanca.
The colours are vibrant against the inky blue ocean.'' Lovely Oceanscape ''
s_lush (16046) 2013-01-20 8:08
The sunlight very favorable to show this seaside in all its beauty. Excellent composition, well-saturated colors, interesting architectural details, wonderful sea surf and perfect quality of the picture!
raszid62 (18583) 2013-01-20 15:57
Μεγάλη φωτογραφήθηκε δίπλα στον ωκεανό. Στο κτίριο τράπεζας, ένα σύγχρονο θέρετρο και μερικά παλιά τείχη. Αργά το απόγευμα φως δημιούργησε ένα απίστευτα χρώματα κυκλοθυμική.
Kielia (21521) 2013-01-21 8:10
you are adding a very original view of this famous place to the gallery here. The perspective is excellent. The golden light and the wonderfully contrasting colors make the image very attractive. My compliments!
maria-v1981 (10416) 2013-01-21 8:43
Απέραντη θέα και σε έναν ωκεανό που είναι πολύ μακρυά από τη Ελλάδα. Τα παιχνίδια του φωτός είναι πολύ ενδιαφέροντα και όλη η σύνθεση έχει στοιχεία που κερδίζουν τις εντυπώσεις.
COSTANTINO (44087) 2013-01-21 11:34
Γεία σου Δάνο,

Δάνο γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφο το σκηνικό με το ζεστό απογευατινό φως να κάνει την διαφορά.Ο απέραντος ωκεανός με την δεξιά πλευρά της φωτογραφίας την κάνει ακόμα πιό ενδιαφέρουσα,
Angshu (52890) 2013-01-22 21:53
The light is quite sublime with the play of light & shadow looking good. Good contrast between the warm tone & the cool blue of the ocean/sky. Nicely led-in, the scene works well
mkamionka (27051) 2013-01-24 8:52

Um abraço Gonçalo

A beautiful, wide open look out to the ocean...this is a nice view all along the shoreline. The panoramic cut suits this perfectly to enhance the vast expanse. The soft light is wonderful as it cast's its shadows over the foreground, creating a layer of contrast between the buildings and water. A level horizon and good timing to capture the atmosphere of the moment has made for a solid picture. Thanks for sharing the view. Have a great day.
All the best,
