Some more sellers that were selling vegetables and other things along the road, in the big market of Tambacounda. This one was also taken by lunch time, on a hot day. Only a few were still standing there, the others were already gone. This market is amazing and full of life and colour.

This is a great African street scene. I like that each person is looking in a different direction their attention caught by something, and each has a different platform as a seat on different levels. The lady in the foreground catches our attention with her traditional dress and I like to see the piles of produce that each is selling. A well seen and captured daily life image.

Excellent street snapshot with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

Très bonne composition pour cette scène de vie dans une rue africaine où chacun tente de vendre ses maigres récoltes. Une image riche en détails et très colorée.

another interesting and having its own charm daily-life scene.
It´s really excellently captured and timed(each of the sellers seems to think and to do something else.Like they were lost in their own thoughts).
What I like more about it is the light and the way it affects the color scheme of the image.
Have a nice day

What a very cool street scene, its full of color and full of life, but there is a fine sense of gritty reality to this as well, brought about by the expressions of the people. There is nothing posed about this at all, and that makes it so much more real and candid. The light is perfect for this result too

Another fine picture of daily life in Senegal. These people are nicely lined up against a neutral background like actors on a stage. The colours are beautiful and you have managed the tough midday sun very well. The very good sharpness and strong contrasts have created a 3d-effect. I feel I could almost touch these people.

Another shot with plenty of interesting props within the tight frame full of local flavours too - the essence that tells it's own story of an interesting moment. You just seem to have that very smart eye, placement of the key elements are well spread out to grab attention but what I like most is their rather relaxed manner in that situation. Colours of their dresses, the green stuff and matured colour of the wall render so much live making the shot, It's lovely that you never fail to inject much interest to the picture in a more appealing light while vividly capturing the depth of feeling. A strong daily life shot and delightful to view, Congrats.

This type market is a very great different between Europe and Africa.
The street sellers are relative quiet without clients
Portraits of the people and bikes are extraordinarily lovely.
Composition and presentation are excellent.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Nice street image Senegal sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition.A great use of light. The deep depth of field is perfect.I like the to see the lady selling vegetables wearing an exotic gown with the men behind her. Well done.

very attractive street scene. You have well captured a nice combination of people, vegetables, bikes and various rough surfaces. One can feel in people's faces that they are tired and that it is a hot dayy.
Very well done,

mi piace molto come hai composto la fotografia e le espressioni che hai colto nei tre personaggi.
Quello che colpisce in questo mercatino lungo la strada è la totale calma e rassegnazione con la quale i venditori attendono che gli eventuyali acquirenti si facciano vivi.
In realta loro non fanno nulla per attirare la loro attenzione a parte l'aver steso le loro poche cose sul terreno.
Nel loro sguardo si legge la rassegnazione, quasi che la loro vita dipenda dagli altri e non dalla loro iniziativa.
Complimenti. Una foto ricca di significati.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

Ola dear Ana
A fantastic triple portrait. The colours are stunning, as is how you managed the harsh sunlight. You composed the shot so tastefully, with great balance and plenty of interesting elements. The fruit and vegetables really add to the sense of colour, shape and daily life.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

The bg wall makes a simple uncluttered bg and I like its warm earthy colors which match the produce on sale in the impromptu street market in the fg. A superb daily life shot with excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

A super daily life in a market captue, Ana, , all elements are present, like the way the woman is dressed
The orange of the wall works well as a background
Saludos y felicitaciones

I like how you have 1 man looking at his phone, 1 man looking to his right, and 1 woman looking to her left :)
all 3 have interesting head gear too.
love the textured wall and the bikes.

Excellent street life shot with much colors in this luminous scene
I like the brown wall ant its texture as a natural rather neutral BG
Best regards, have a nice evening
