I decided to call this photo Essaouira the Colourful because I still carry in me the strong impression of the bright sunshine reflected from the whitewashed walls, the vivid blues of boats, windows, doors and even carts, plus the bright colours worn by the inhabitants and here of course there is the additional contribution made by the orange juice vendors.

Interesting to see that with a f stop of 4.5, you have controlled the exposure to white exceedingly well. I must had used the f stop of 8 or 10 and not of 4.5 in the same conditions. The shutter speed of 1/2500 has helped here in maintaining the colours, other wise it would had been a complete white wash.
I like the daily life scene from Morocco, where the residents paint their dwellings with blue and white to ward off the extra heat. Did you try the orange juice too?
Don't you think placing the cyclist on the left side of the frame would be better, or may be by the time you were ready to press the shutter, the cyclist had covered the distance.
Just a few thoughts for this lovely immage.

These orange juice seller works in a very small house but excellent with the man on his bike, this cares for more dynamic.
Nice picture with depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, colour and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Essaouira, I like this town a lot and it looks like, that it has not changed much in the past 27 years, when I was the last time there. Very colourful with vibrant tones and high sharpness. Well done

Colorful cultural photo...love it

I like very much the quiet and decisive way the cyclist is crossing the frame in front of the characteristic colourful setting. The well considered tight framing has given a special place to all the elements included. People, items and colours have become meaningful and their interaction is very interesting. I also like the strong light and the colours; shadows and dark colours are well distributed in the frame and light and bright colours shine through. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

Hi Klaudio, I also think aboiut Essaouira as blue white city. here we see other colours as well. I like these nicely arranged oranges.
In my thoughts I am still in Oz, showing often the photos of my trip and telling about the wonderful places I visited and people I met there :).
Have a beautiful week MAlgo

una scena di strada molto complessa e colorata, il chiosco con la frutta attira l'attenzione e le persone creano dinamicità, soprattutto il ragazzo in bici.
Ottima composizione e bei colori, la luce era molto diretta, ma è stata ben gestita.

Hi dear Klaudio,
You're capturing well this street scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see colorful roadside stand selling orange or other foods and white wall. It gives us a intense impression by using primary colors and strong light as you note. And, It draws out an additional good effect in this image for the boy who is driving the bicycle.
