Beautiful shot of a rarely seen location in the middle of nowhere. Discoveries like these are what travel is all about. Well composed. Good DOF. Perhaps could be a bit darker in the bottom half.
I clicked the "useful" button on your note, but it doesn't seem to register. What's going on?

It's wonderful to have such a beautiful subject. The architecture fom this village is remakable. And cactus put you in the atmosphere of the area. Excellent light management.
Have a nice evening,

Bonsoir, cher Gerrit,
Très belle composition avec ce ciel ombrageux, et cette éclaircie qui arrive à point pour donner au sujet principal toute sa beauté.
Le choix du cadrage est parfait pour rendre compte du village.

I like the combination of mud-and-brick façades and minaret lit by the sun under the dark clouds. The view of the village is quite fascinating and you composed the picture well with the cactae in the foreground.

Perfect light which exposes natural colors of the buildings.
The cactus provides depth, all I could wish for was a model walking in the middle lower void.

the typical village is beautiful, built in a splendid place,as often in Morocco, and it's superbly emphasized by the light.

Hello Gerrit - Here in a stony valley we see a wonderful old settlement, it has such charm and a feeling of exoticism which we don't really see in a European environment. A fine shot where the light plays an important role as the village is bathed in warm sunlight while the sky looks heavy with rain. Super shot. Warm regards Rosemary

Ik vind het leuk dat je ons wat moois laat zien van Marocco,ope de 1 of andere manier heb ik nooit zo de behoefte gehad om er heen te gaan ;+]].
Je hebt hier prachtig licht gevangen,ik vind die donker bergen op de achtergrond superbe.
Fijn weekend Gerrit.

Lovely view with a good light contrast between the sun on the village and this cloudy sky in the bg, good shrapness, tfs.
josepmarin (57583) 2012-05-19 5:57
in this good framing you show us an amazing architecture well illuminated by the Sun, while the sky and the clouds threaten with a storm and give a dramatic touch to the composition.
The image is very sharp, has a balanced exposure, a few beautiful colors and a great graphical wealth.
A beautiful work, my friend.

Looks to be a place off the usual tourist map. Very nice presentation with the warm tones contrasting with the BG. Like the shadow of the clouds on the hill slope. The cactus in the FG provides depth. Well done!
