In most Moroccan cities one can find water fountains in the streets. They are always decorative, some covered with beautiful mosaics or with more simple decorations such as on this one.

Nice title, I guess a blink to U2's song.
Good management of the light, I like this soft rendering with medium contrast but with still good colors.
The composition is perhaps a bit too centered. I would suggest a slight crop removing a bit of the bottom and of the right.
Have a nice day,

A refreshing shot, for hands and ...feet if you come in the fountain! Very pale colors give the sensation of quietness. I would have cropped the top to remove the wire and its shadow, or cloned it.

A lovely piece of daily life with the two children using the fountain, set against the lovely blue walls. The small boy standing in the fountain gives this picture a very spontaneous feel so very well seen and taken.

a wonderful study of these two youngsters, captivating POV and composition. Perfect clarity, light and colours an impressive and striking image. Well done!

The main reason why I like this photo is how the children fit so nicely inside the rounded white frame, their bodies following the curvature of the white area. Then of course I always enjoy street shots which include human life. And children have a way of brightening every picture.

Hi Wanda. A fountain is a fountain unless it seems we are in Marocco, where it becomes a work of art.Superb colours, lovely light and sweet moment of interaction between sister and little brother.Regards. Klaudio.

Very nice shot once more. A simply scene always tenderizing when there are children.
With this colored and worked architecture and this nice and simply scene, you really made a rich and attractive composition. Nice work.

What a beautiful and truly interesting urban & daily life picture!
Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, colors, vertical format, contrasts and, above all, composition are all excellent features!
TFS - congrats,
