Hi dear TE friends,
this is my 5th picture of "Morocco series" (3rd in Rabat),
I've taken 2 photo of this man, the first one was much mor close-up, 'cause I have been attracted from his tired look and the time-signs on his face, but while I took the first photo I have thought about portrait, ...this man isn't just a face, he is an Artisan, he is proud of his products, of his little shop, ..and I have thought as all these things are part of his life, of his personality, an so I've decided to try to show this with a wider view,
I hope you like it.

You are absolutely right about this old man's art and his products, they both deserve to be presented here.
I like your composition with blue framing and figure standing at right corner of photo. Good idea, good photo

effettivamente l'espressione stanca dell'artigiano é il punto focale dell'immagine - già da sola varrebbe una foto. tuttavia la composizione intorno ad essa é buona...l'occhio passa dal viso alla creazione ed i colori della pelle sono ben incorniciati dal blu delle pareti

Very good context portrait making a great use of the bright colours, yellow and blue work togerther well...
lestans (17208) 2008-03-19 15:41
Hai ragione, è proprio simpatico! e poi ben colorato, incorniciato di blu e con quella bella scarpina rossa in mano.
Il Marocco deve essere uno di quei posti benedetti dai fotografi, perchè si trovano colori e personaggi fantastici.
Tu poi sei bravissimo, quindi il risultato è ottimo

Very interesting shot of this candid pose. Colors of blue windows make the frame nicely for your composition. A bit dark at top right but overall it is a nice photo.

A very good portrait. You have well captured this daily life scene. I really like his expression, he seems to be amused.
A colorful composition, very well framed, and so typical of Marocco.

Well done daily life shot. I like the way you use blues for natural framing. Good colours. Many kinds of shoes and for sure personal service.

Olá Fabio, I don't know the closer version, but this blue framing is delicious. I would like to see a bit more of blue at the bottom, but I don't know if that was possible. Anyway, it's great to see the colorful mess contained inside the blue box. I guess that the client that was going to buy the orange shoe is gone... ;-)
Have a nice day,

really nice picture. With a nice composition, but specially for the colours, lights, and for the moment with this proud artisan showing his product.
Hasta la vista,

The clarity of this image is excellent. Well composed with good saturation of colour and sharpness.

Wonderful daily life image of the shoe seller. I love the blue frame as a result of the shop doors and the colourful array of shoes for sale. Good catch of the man as he looks out. You should put the closer portrait in the WS, unless you plan to post it another day. Well done

Ciao Fabio ,

tecnica perfetta come al solito
vinicio (23423) 2008-03-20 7:10
L'uomo ha il viso classico dello stereotipo del commerciante marocchino, inconfondibile... bella foto con ottimi contrasti di colore e lui che buca la foto con il suo sorriso, complimenti Fabio.
Auguri di una bella Pasqua.

Une scène de la vie quotidienne bien cadrée et très colorée.

Splendid portrait about this old Artisan. We can feel throght his face that he has proud of his products. Beautiful colors and contrasts. Well done, regards, Consuelo
markstaples (15670) 2008-03-20 10:32
Such a colourful shot thanks to the vivid doors and the shoes in the foreground. Very well framed, a great daily life shot.
grigand (20198) 2008-03-20 12:44
Queste sono le immagini che apprezzo di più, bellissima l'inquadratura con il blu che fà da cornice ma quello che mi più mi piace è l'espressione di questo signore, un pò stanco forse sofferente ma fiero e sereno della sua attività; bravo.
bakes888 (18499) 2008-03-20 22:15
Hi Fabio. Good environmental portrait. You do indeed show more of the story behind the man and in doing so add interest to the shot. Good colour and detail. Thanks for sharing.

belle photo de cet homme qui est pret a vendre des chaussures, des babouches et je suis sur que si vous voulez autre chose, il a un cousin ou un frère qui a ce que vous désirez.
Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté qui nous laisse devinner beaucoups de genre de babouches sur cet étal.
Gerrit (52283) 2008-03-21 5:45
well composed picture and very weel framed. The blue forms a great contrast with the colourful merchandis and the highlighted man.
Silvio1953 (154133) 2008-03-21 7:04
Ciao Fabio, bellissima immagine piena di colore, in tutti i sensi, quand'ero ragazzino, un po' d'anni fa, qualche negozietto così colorato lo si incontrava anche a Spoleto, la mia città, bella immagine di quest'artigiano e della sua piacevole produzione, ciao Silvio
kiks (12759) 2008-03-21 7:29
Hi Fabio, thank you for your wonderful note. It gives your photo more intensity.
HOBO (5282) 2008-03-21 10:37
u present this small shop with it's owner very carefully framed by the dominant blue emphazazing the contrast a lot.
alaindiveu (210) 2008-03-21 14:45
You are right. We wanted to see how this man man is proud of his shoes.
Very colorful : blue, yellow, white, reAnd, this face !
Very good job
Thanks for sharing
skippy007 (12510) 2008-03-21 15:45
A close up of his face would have made an interesting portrait as you suggested but how you represented him here with his work is very interesting with the contrast of the blue woodwork.
jhm (160941) 2008-03-22 0:59
I find a daily life picture always very nice.
Certainly this type of picture with a man and his shoes business.
You are absolutely right about this old man's art and his products, you show us a very nice image.
Quality and presentation are very nice.
Cricri (126750) 2008-03-22 12:12

See you've been to Morocco, a wonderful country.
Here the blue looks great against the red, brown and yellow, and the natural window framing suits the picture very well...i like it.

ChrisJ (118927) 2008-03-26 1:35

Excellent picture as usual. The colours and the face of the man are great!
Angshu (56760) 2008-03-27 1:01
Good to see you back! The wider approach to this portrait to allow us see his wares is effective & I love the blue frame of the shop doors and the colourful array of shoes for sale. Good work!
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-03-28 0:39
Great daily life picture very well captured.
Excellent portrait with the man and the shoes. I like the vivid colours and how you framed it
Have a nice evening
rossofuoco (7395) 2008-04-02 2:42
Eccezionale la serie sul Marocco e questa è quella che preferisco di più.
Complimenti per la spontaneità dell'immagie e per i colori vivi.
cepekdong (3676) 2008-04-07 8:05
very well done this picture. since i have recently been to morocco i know how hard it can be to get good pictures of people. his expression is really good and the blue frame (the window) is a good contrast
GLEUVARGAS (26) 2008-04-09 8:20
Marocco is one of my favorite country,just so color full specially the blue just everwhere...beautiful shot... the blue frame around the shoesman is so nice.
bostankorkulugu (42498) 2008-04-15 10:39

izmirli (3989) 2008-05-13 4:14
ciao dear fabio
excellent picture.magnificent daily life and colours.good composition and note.well done.
andante (7092) 2008-05-14 9:03
What I like about this image besides the clarity in deep colors is the fact that the image tells a stoty about the man, though he is a stranger, the image says so much about him that you feel a familiarity with him. Excellent capture,
vmukherjee (612) 2008-10-13 7:52
Beautiful shot. The window forms a natural framing, and also the different coloured shoes along with the rich bluw window look great.
