Skoura, south of the Moroccan Atlas, close to Ouarzazate is a wonderful little village, with palm trees and stone desert all around.
Facing the palm trees areas, we just had a strong storm with heavy rains which never happened for the past 5 years according to what I understood. When dark clouds started to vanish for sunset, I had a wonderful light to take this picture of the Kasbah where we spent three nights and had wondeful diners.
Recropped, gama and level corrected. Light USM.

On sort les archives à cause du mauvais temps.
Cependant c'est une bonne composition dotée d'un bel éclairage qui lui donne toute sa valeur.

This is very good, great evening light to work with and a fantastic subject.
Personally on this one I would prefer more details in the shadows, also a bit of the sky on the right seems overexposed and IMO overall darker sky would improve the mood of this photo. Looks like a great candidate for blended exposures if you had a tripod.

Another fine one, Steven!
Not only that you captured this beautiful light on the wall but you also made a great job with levels (especially in the foreground!).
A bit overexposed sky in the upper right corner, though (tssk-tssk-tsssssk!!!). ;-D
I love this contrast between the orange/red against the blue sky.

Wondeful use of light in this picture. The shades of orange are superb and the cloudy sky looks gorgeous. I like the shadows on the facade as well.

Je me baladais dans les photos du Maroc, et je suis tombé sur celle-ci, qui m-a beaucoup plu ! La lumières et les ombres sont très belles, et rehaussent superbement la Casbah. Un bon petit thé à la menthe tout en haut et la soirée et parfaite !!
