Neighbors in a small side street, somewhere in the Medina of Marrakesh, are enjoying a chat in the late afternoon sun while life is slowly passing them by.

Nice capture from Marrakech. The warm colors gives the impression of old Kodachrome prints.
TFS and best regards

this photo presents to us various people "frozen" in your photo at different moments of their lives... what sort of lives? what moments? it's interesting to look at them and guess what they are thinking about, where they are going...
My only remark to this photo would be: perhaps I'd crop some part of the bottom... :)

a very nicely taken street scene which has plenty of action and interest.
It`s a grab shot that captures the moment very well.

A nice street-shot showing life going on as usual wihout much happening. Some people are chatting among themselves while others are just passing by. Different cultural and social expressions are seen side by side. I like this kind of photos showing life as it is. As so often happens when you point your camera into a crowd you cannot get everyone properly inside the frame. That's just how it is.

A very nice daily scene, busting with people and all enjoying the life in the sun. The man on the moped is a nice point, and for me the real star here is the woman on the left talking to the man in the striped clothing. Something about her posture makes me think she looks like a figure from a religious scene. Great candid photography, something I really want to learn about.
All the best

This sort of dynamic candid always gives such a flavour of the locale filled with vibrant colors with so much detail around to view while keeping the woman on the LH as central focal of interest. Indeed lots of stories or perhaps gossiping going on there that catches our attention, interesting colourful characters too. The biker and his pillion are eyeing on you! This is an attractive street scene and a good spot to shoot making them tell some story. Great work with the camera precisely timed, focus and dof are just spot on, I love the richness of tones surrounding them and never mind about the man's cut-off body, after all we cant have all that we want as I have the similar experience before. A very well done effort- Great capture! and tfs.

Indeed in our country is this over, older people are not in the afternoon together, a pity this is very important for the people, but the modern time!
I like the nice soft colours also the sharpness and clarity of this street view.
Excellent composition and good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A typical Marrakech streetlife scene. I loved the atmosphere of these streets when I've been there a few months ago. So many different colours, smells ... and noises ! Just as shame your framing is not so large and so people on left and right are cut.

Une scène très classique de la vie quotidienne, bercée d'une lumière douce et chaleureuse. J'aime bien la gestion de la profondeur de champ: ni trop ni trop peu, tu as trouvé un bel équilibre.
