Initially I wanted to title this photo "Waiting" because I got the impression that each individual in the composition seemed to be waiting for something, someone or good old Godot. The man with the striped top was looking out to sea, the woman on the right was in her own world.The two young men in the shadows were biding their time. All in one image but worlds apart.

I didn't get to Essaouira but did visit the smaller but similar town of Asilah in the north - another very atmospheric coastal town. A good composition her involving different textures and colour.
And you are probably right about my Karijini photo - I think quite a few of my recent postings are confusingly different for our European friends on TE.

it is not a typical photo from Essaouira. There are no white walls and blue boats. Interesting observation. nice idea.

This is an interesting image mostly due to a classy and well executed composition. Like the way you captured people who bring the life and perfectly fit to the scene. Excellent quality achieved. Great work!

namaste, a lonely place here. Full with those three but they appear as a single, waiting for someone or something. Photo quality is very good and the light is managed perfectly. Love the colour tone. Very well done. Tfs.

A well composed image that takes excellent advantage of the graphical lines and textures offered by the foreground walls. The people dotted about bring the scene to life and set the mood. I like the light and harmonious tonal palette and, especially, the superb rendering of the textural detail in those walls.

It is tempting to see a symbolic meaning in a photo like this, considering the conservative attitudes of a society like the Moroccan. On the other hand it could well be that no conclusion at all could be drawn, so we can just enjoy this as a nice photo with a good composition and a very well handled strong light. That is good enough for me.

lepo si sve to video i ovekovečio. Šteta što je tvoj položaj bio takav da je centralni motiv zid i što su sve osobe sitne i u daljini, ali valjda nije bilo šanse da ih drugačije sve "uhvatiš".

dobro je što nisi imenovao fotku sa Waiting, pošto je to ponovljeno hiljadu puta na ovom sajtu. Mogao si reći samo Dalmacija i svi bismo u snovima bili na najlepšoj obali na svetu. Jer ovaj kamen i sunce su neodoljivi.
Pozdrav prijatelju i...srećno leto!

The human element is obviously quite important here and when I saw your photo I immediately began to think about if the human element of the scene could be enhanced. The rules of thirds in photo composition say that eye is naturally drawn to a point about two-thirds. I made a WS where the man looking at the sea is positioned at 1/3 both horizontally and vertically and he is indeed more in focus and also the women become more visible because they are bigger because of the cropping. On the other hand side very much of the beauty of your photo is lost. You only see a little part of the beautiful blue sky ,the balance between the sky and the buildings is not there anymore and some of the buildings are outside the frame. The conclusion is that rules of compositions could be helpful, but sometimes it is very good to skip them. You could take a better photo if you ignore them. TFS and have a good Sunday!

It does seem that they all in turn are waiting for something or someone. I really enjoyed Essaouira when I visited there, and this image shows the charm of this seaside town.

I remember this bridge very well, spent quite some time there.. and the weather was just that spotless too. Essaouira is a place from another time as is most of Morocco. Beautiful composition, thanks for taking me back in time.
All the best

Well seen and captured that tells its own story in just one frame and with you behind the camera and each one seems to be in their own little world oblivious to all around them. Very nice fun image, more sunshine and glorious Mediterranean-colours and that striking blue sky certainly makes this pic stand out. Congrats
