In Bab Oudaia, Rabat in Morocco. Amidst the blue was this man an dthe sympathetic cat. It was another lucky scene.
If this scene may look familiar, it is because Karin (who was in the same tour that I went with) posted a similar picture .
Anyway, I always thought that my picture was an inferior one. Nonetheless, looking at the two pictures more closely, I decided that I shouldn't compare. The poses of both the cat and the man are different and the angle chosen are different too. The camera that we used projected a different color tone.

Strange photo, cat looking slightly puzzled and man limping with a single crutch. Rubbish bin thrown in for good measure.

Yes, it is... The first time I saw this image is that "I've seen this one before!" same scence and the same cat... and after I read your note and looked at the link... yes, that's the one. Great angle, DOF and colors are great... Nice captured!

Very good Manuell. I remembered that shot, and I thought it was yours. No offense to Karin. I saw less of his work. It's a great shot. I love the way this cat is lokoking sat this poor guy on crutches.
The colors are soft, nice.
Thinking about the earthquake in Morocco yesterday.

The cat looking into the shot and the winding blue street guide the eye into the shot well. Good shot and well taken.

Completely staggering combination of red with the blue:) But the main thing, photograph for the soul. Wonderful photograph

Great timing to be there and see this interaction. The cat colour is a great balance against the blue of the walls. I attempted a workshop to lighten the figure in the scene.

Great photo, and an original in it's own right. Very interesting scene, which makes you think. Nice depth and colors in the photo. Well done!

I like this shot a lot. Very effective and a bit strange atmosphere, great composition and colors. The feeling of connection between the man and the cat is amazing.
Very-very well done.

I like both versions, yours and Karin's. This blue zigzag corridor is amazing and the yellow of the cat is so contrasting to this blue. Excellent shot, Manny.

I remember seeing Karin's shot, and I also like your version, Manny. A wonderful moment, really makes you wonder what kind of interation there might be between the cat and the guy. Great slightly upward view of this meandering walkway - the blue and white color of the houses is really splendid, but I also like the yellow/brown element added by the cat. You did a good job making the best from what looks like quite difficult light.

I am sorry Manny, this does not measure up to the quality of your other shots for me. Compositionally, it is quite good, but it is just hurt too badly by harsh light I think. This is not a terrible shot by any means Manny, but coming from you, I feel the results are quite dissappointing.

Again the fine colour setting in this street. Very well composed Manny. Great posing of the cat and the man. Very well done

It looks to me like a color slide or negative? I think that it's a shot worth keeping regardless. Nice depature from your recent posts.

Beautiful composition, I like the angle of the photo which makes that the cat looks in the direction of the man and vice versa. And the road is the one who leads(drives) our eyes towards the one or the other one. Excellent!
Belle composition, j'aime l'angle de la photo qui fait que le chat regarde en direction de l'homme et vice-versa. Et le chemin est celui qui conduit nos yeux vers l'un ou l'autre. Excellent!

Ok - I must admit my favorite pet a cat ;-) I like this photo (and the first) very much but never took the time to comment.
Great colour combinations - the blue walls and the "tiger" - very well spotted and captured Manuel.
