Apparently, in Arabic, the word kasbah (or qassabah) refers to a type of medina, Islamic city, or fortress (citadel). In Tangier, it refers to the walled-in part of the medina. It includes the Kasbah Museum in Dar el-Makhzen, the former sultan’s palace (where Portuguese and British governors also lived).
We were walking the streets of the Kasbah when we came upon this tunnel. I believe it's Rue Riad Sultan.

I would love to have an arch & cobblestone pathway as part of my garden - So rustic - adorned by the cute window & lantern just completes the picture - I like the effect of the highlights possibly a little less this is just my opinion - I hope you don't mind me saying this.
Overall I like this image.

the composition is truly nice, but the colors are a bit strange in my opinion.
It looks over-saturated, especially the greenery on the wall.

I am always a fan of photos that show one-point perspective, such as your photo of the Kasbah. What I particularly like about this one is that the perspective lines are interrupted by the archway, but other lines to the same vanishing point continue through the arch, and beyond. Very well done.

Your photo note is interesting and you present well a type of Medina, some moss on the walls adding colors
Good sharpness with excellent light and colors

You're capturing well this place by a good angle, a good perspective and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the strong fortress made of stone and tasteful tunnel at center. It's tasteful for the moss and grass on outer wall, too.
