My most beautiful and successful photo from the moving bus.
Normally the locals seem to have developed the sixth sense in figuring out that the tourists are taking photos of them as the bus approaches them and they are walking or riding donkeys or bicycles by the roadside.
These young ladies were so happy in each others company, obviously sharing a joke and totally unaware of the approaching bus loaded with tourists.
I was taken by their broad smiles,their mutual happiness, their deportment and their love of colour. College girls I would assume, happy to go home as they walk from the city of Erfoud to the outskirts.

wow! What a delightful trio they are. They are really looking like butterfly with their colourful dresses which get more attention due to the contrasting background colours. Excellent depth and very good sharpness. Great shot. Namaste & Tfs.

Difficulties getting online - so cutting and pasting this - BUT just want to say - "I like this shot!" Before I lose my connection yet again.

Reading your note, you were quite lucky to catch this shot! One has to be alert to capture anything useful from a moving bus, let alone an immaculate portrait!
A slightly higher viewpoint also provides simple all sand background. Sidelight is good too.

Another great capture from the bus, that was in this case an excellent POV! Their typical clothes are really interesting and give beautiful colors to the image! Very good light and sharpness! Wonderful composition!

This is such a happy scene. I love the smiles on these girls' faces. Their colorful clothes jump out against the dry desert background, and we can't help but smile too as we view this photo. :-)

On a moving bus? No kidding...look you camera setting again...1/1000 seconds. I agree with you totally. This is a very successful photo. The clothing of girls are so colorful. They like flowers in the middle of the desert.

Uradili ste seriju lepih fotografija sa vaseg putovanja ...
Lep pogled iz autobusa na vesele devojke sa osmehom na licu ...
Lepo je videti ljude sa osmehom i srecne.

un titolo piacevole quasi quanto la foto.
Queste tre sorridenti ragazze mettono allegria e i loro colori contrastano splendidamente con i colori del deserto.

I have to agree wholeheartedly with your notes; these girls are a delight to see and, also, to photograph. You have done exceptionally well to keep them so crisp from a moving bus!
Co-incidentally, the girls step down in size to give the opposing diagonal to the pavement and their direction of progress.
Have a great day,

Well done considering from a moving bus, with the fine resolution and excellent coloring.
And obviously your tour bus had their attention and nice to see smiles.
In California, the opposite happens too often, with tourists be treated rudely, which I think is dumb, because it brings money to our state.
Have an enjoyable weekend,
PS: We use the California slang "this old Guy" to avoid female wrath if we said "this old Gal".

Hi dear Klaudio,
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see three young ladies who are walking the road with smile and happiness. Their traditional clothes catch one's eyes and is beautiful combination as a total. And, the shadow projected to the road draws out an additional good effect in this image.

it's always a pleasure to see happy faces. Here the happy mood is stressed by the bright colors and exotic attires of the girls. I'd say the one in the middle looks rather cool and futuristic to me, not Muslim at all:)
Thanks and best wishes

I can see why you took this picture as the colours of their clothes are so vibrant against the rocky BG. They are clearly at ease with you. The fact that there are three in a picture, and they are separated from each other, makes this composition first class. Suprb quality as well.
Kind Regards, Ann

Very nice photo from your "safari" session. Did you shot it through the bus window? Excellent quality, fine composition. Good title and informative note.

Iako sakrivene do guše, ovim devojkama ne nedostaje elegancija. I ti si to primeto Dado. Sada svi ti možemo da vidimo.
Sa Kekecom idemo dalje. Naravno neka završi tamo gde je najkorisniji. Ja ću uciniti sve što je moguće.
Osim toga, sasvim uzgred, interesovala bi me nekakva knjiga o australijskoj heraldici. Poznato mi je da Australija ima grbove za sve, ali uzorci koji su meni pristupačni nisu dovoljno dobri za likovnu obradu i reprodukovanje. Kada kažem knjiga, to znači i polovna, stara, na buvljaku. Bitno je da su crteži jasni. Svakako, ovo te ne obavezuje - jedino ako je na dohvat ruke i ako nije skupo.
Inače, uživam da sarađujemo.
Puno pozdrava prijatelju,
