Another barbecue scene from the famous Jma El Fna square in Marrakech. The cooks are extremely busy and gesture all the time. My main concern was to get their heads with no superpositions, and of course to get the right amount of smoke, too much would spoil the view, too little would loose the atmosphere.

Yes, I remember another excellent picture from the same place I think...Nice bright RED sign piercing the smoky gloom here, Izzet. A very nice, atmospheric series. I like the moiton blur too.

what an atmosphere on this image, what a moody picture, with suspension in the air, with dusty "flavor";
love this photo,
best wishes, j.

very nice, it really shows the action. It might deoend on taste, but I would have preferred the 'still men' in front, with the 'moving man' absent or behind them. The smoke already shows the movement.

I like this smoke, we can imagine the smell in this very lively scene of this local barbecue, pleasant to see the motion blur in it, that makes it extra lively.

Youve done well here Izzet, the cooks do indeed look hard at work as the rest of the people wait. Perfect exposure, youve done it well.

A very atmospheric shot, Izzet. I can almost taste the smoke. You've captured the essence of this remarkable place.
Its technically superb as well; spot-on exposure, and I like the composition with the heads of the diners in the foreground.

Very nice shot of this place, Izzet! Exposure is excellent despite these lights, and the smoke is "in the air" really... The blurry silouettes make the shot dynamic.

Not only an interesting picture. Is good, is really good. Is a good night shot plenty of peolpe and movement, plenty of life and very creative.
Composition and exposure are good too, and inside the photo there is an exciting atmosphere.
Regards from Spain.

Hi Izzet. Wow, what a view! Smoky gloomy sight and full of activity. Great stuff. This photo made me want to go to Morroco!! Thanks for sharing.

Ouah, super atmosphere in this one, Izzet. Beautiful exposure handling to render the ambience under the lights, and the vivid kitchen activities illustrated by just the right amount of motion blur. I like the red sign included at the top for additional context and a contrasting luminous detail.

Terrific night shot. Excellent handling of color. The smoke adds wonderful atmosphere.

A good daily life shot. I like the repetition of the people in the crowd. The smoky haze adds atmosphere. Well done!

Marrakech'den günlük yaşam ancak bu kadar etkili yansıyabilirdi.. Tebrikler ve teşekkürler...
