Bab Boujloud in Fes
Here, where the minarets of the Bou Inania Medersa and the Sidi Lazaz Mosque stand out against the sky, is the main entrance to the Medina. Hispano-Moorish in style and built in the 13th century during the reign of the Almohads, it was renovated in 1913 and is the most recent of the city’s gateways. It leads to the square of the same name, which adjoins the former Kasbah of Boujloud built by the Almohad Sultan Mohammed En-Nasser and in use today as a residential district.

Nice shot with the long shadows and good colors. The city beyond is nicely fraqmed.
Too bad that guy with the truck didn't move it out of the frame....but you had no control of that...maybe you have a vertical as well.

Sorry for the delayed responses... I am planning a very long trip away, hence the silence.
I must quickly write and then rest my brain...
Two things are noticeable in your pictures - good (not perfect) compositions and a good ability to spot a strange subject/occurence...
I willnot be able to write any critiques to you for some time now, but I hope to see more from you when I check in next...

Je parcours votre galerie pour le premiere fois.
Je m'arrete sur cette image qui me plait pour sa lumiere et aussi pour les grandes ombres au sol.
Ce joli lieu est bien mis en valeur
