Essaouira's souks and back streets are really exciting and colorful for a photographer. When I saw this arch leading to a small street, I thought " How nice it would be if someone showed up ? " And the miracle happened, a door opened and this man came out and jumped into my field of view. Of course because of the dark area of the arch I had to underexpose as much as one stop.

your picture of the arches and man is excellent. I am glad you waited for someone to come out otherwise the picture would had some emptiness.
Nice colours and pov.

Frame is perfect. Yellow, blue and red perfectly fit in the composition. Great shot.

What photo! What frame (the arch) and what moment with the man in the street.
I like this shot.
Really a nice and good work.

konunun değişmeyen unsurlarını gözlemleyip anlık bir sahneyi beklemek fikrini sizin çalışmalarınızda farkettim ve bunu Kula'da olduğu gibi bir çok yerde uygulamaya çalıştım. Bu fotoğrafta olduğu gibi her zaman harika kompozisyon yapıyorsunuz. Teşekkürler.

Izzet, j'admire dans cette photo la bonne gestion de la lumière alors qu'elle a été faite dans l'urgence. Les courbes et les couleurs en font un autre sujet d'admiration.

And with the man in this picture (useful) in the same colour as the framing and the textures in every corner, this is a fantastic shot !

Another good example of natural/contextual framing, Izzet. An enchanting view into this colorful backstreet, and well done waiting for someone to pass by and bring life to the scene. I like all the rich textures and materials present in this photo.

Something unique and something unusual. This is door to door to door.

Excellent shot of this colourful backstreet. You're right, it wouldn't have been as good without anyone on the street; he provides an element of life and makes a good focal point for the image. I sort of wish that you hadn't chopped his feet off, but I can see that you were relying on your quick reactions here, so I can't really argue.

excellent natural framing for the nice colourful street.
You get the shot with perfect timing when the man appeared.

Patience always pays off. I like this beautiful arched alley, and this man which is walking in the shadow give us some idea about the heat. Colors are amazing. IMO you cropped it (or took it) a bit too low. I think that a sqaure format or a vertical format could be better.
But still, I like it very much.

İzzet Abi Merhaba,
Tarihi taşın çerçeve gibi kullanımıyla, kusursuz simetrisi ve canlı renkler ile çok şahane bir kompozisyon meydana getirmişsiniz. Ellerinize sağlık, saygılarımla,

Great framing, Izzet. Light is perfect. Nice combination of primary colors. I like how the red of the door matches the robe of the man. The presence of the man adds "punch" to the already interesting street Regards, Yvonne

Böyle güzel çerçeveleme ve canlı renkler içine bir de insan eklenince sabrınızın ödülü harika oluyor. Ellerinize sağlık.
