The long beach of Mahdia, as well as a carpet of beach chairs and umbrellas, a real market with a bustle of vendors selling everything from sarongs to cigarettes, from fruit to figurines, costume jewelery from the coconuts. But those who collect the most successful are these children, dressed in the local style, they do a lot of tenderness. They sell small flower arrangements made with fresh jasmine intertwined, are things that nobody needs, but the charm of the small seller is always very successful.
PROFUMO DI GELSOMINI
La lunga spiaggia di Mahdia è,oltre che un tappeto di sdraio ed ombrelloni,un vero mercato con un via vai di venditori di qualsiasi cosa,dai parei alle sigarette,dalla frutta alle statuette,dai gioielli di bigiotteria alle noci di cocco. Ma quelli che riscuotono il maggiore successo sono questi bambini,abbigliati in stile locale,che fanno molta tenerezza. Vendono delle piccole composizioni floreali fatte con gelsomini freschi intrecciati,sono cose che non servono a nessuno,ma il fascino del piccolo venditore ha sempre molto successo.

Hi Ciao dear Luciano, how are you?
Great portrait image via close-up, his position is very good and not from front but from side is very very wise choice. sharp and clear image as usual.
All the best and have a good day! Takero from Tokyo

Wonderful image! The boy is very well placed in the frame and he stands out against the simple BG. Gorgeous colours and skin tones.
Kind Regards, Ann

Personally I get rather disturbed by people who try to sell me things when I want to relax on a beach, but apart from that this is a charming photo. The gently rolling waves create a fine and neutral background, and the colours of the sea also contrast perfectly with the boy's red clothes.
jmdias (67283) 2014-08-05 2:08
a perfect portrait of the boy. the light is very nice and the natural pose is fantastic. great sense of life and movement.
photographer_sg (4414) 2014-08-05 2:30
This is such a wonderful photograph with perfect framing and superb details. The charming young flower seller is perfectly placed in the frame and in excellent contrast with the background sea. Beautiful moment captured and presented with perfection.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

I remember smelling Jasmine almost everywhere in Tunisia when we visited there some twenty-five years ago. Unfortunately for her, my wife can't stand it:-) However, this picture is full of charm and beautifully presented. Well composed with the boy standing out well from the background. Superb colours and detail.
timecapturer (49288) 2014-08-05 3:01
this is a beautiful study! Always wonderful when you have the sea as a backdrop as it makes all the colours and detailing so much more distinctive and irresistible. So much character here and a flawless execution. Superb!

Beautiful capture! Good timing with light and colors managed very well. Portrait is oozing with life. Good job:)

Ciao Caro Luciano,
Children are always the best sellers.
They pluck the heart strings of the tourists.
This little guy is particularly appealing in his national costume.
You have done a great portrait using a shallow dof.
The shot is well composed, the boy having lots of space into which he can move.
Have a lovely day,
pierrefonds (69873) 2014-08-05 4:27
Le sujet est bien cadré. Tu as bien capturé l'action du jeune vendeur. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de ses vêtements. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Interesantan tekst o plazi i trenutku sa opisom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan decak u narodnoj nosnji.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Lep decak i narodna nosnja.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the beach and time with the description ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated boy in traditional costume.
Good work, nice captured moment, beautiful colors.
Nice boy and costumes.
Nice afternoon and all the best.

A lovely portrait with a perfectly face, a pity that we not can smell the jasmone!
Perfectly sharp and clear.
Very well composition, nice presentation too.
Excellent done, TFS.
ikeharel (76297) 2014-08-05 5:19
A fantastic red and white dressed young vendor, and a cute face expression he has, Luciano. That's help a bit when selling flowers while on the beach.
Contrast is immaculately collected with the sea on BG.
ourania (49961) 2014-08-05 5:48
molto bello questo ritratto naturale, e' molto piacevole il senso di movimento e hai composto la semplice scena elegantemente. Il ragazzo sembra confidente e bravo nel suo lavoro, la sua espressione e' intrigante. Mi piacciono molto i colori dolci e la diffusione della luce. Il titolo e' superbo, sembra che il vento porta con se l' aroma dei gelsomini e lo manda anche fuori dallo schermo. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
Nicou (148666) 2014-08-05 6:39
Charmant jeune homme avec son beau costume tout rouge et son châpeau merveilleux les vagues en fond quelle vue et comme il porte se panier en osier splendide.

Ciao Luciano, venditore molto buona fotografia paqueño gelsomino, ben visto e catturato in questa immagine interessante, molto buona nitidezza, buona luce, colore e qualità. Ottimo lavoro perfettamente fatto, complimenti amico mio. Grazie per la condivisione di questo bel lavoro.
Buona notte e felice settimana.

Ciao Luciano, un venditore così non può non avere successo, foto di gran qualità, ottima inquadratura e splendida nitidezza, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
carlo62 (53394) 2014-08-05 14:55
questo bambino sembra uscito da un film su Aladino.
Per forza che sono i più gettonati dai turisti, già dalla foto incuriosiscono e inteneriscono.
Bello scatto, di ottima qualità, nonostante la situazione. Molto belli anche i colori.
macjake (71113) 2014-08-06 0:37
the success of the young seller may be true, but I suppose its also rather sad. Its too bad he has to sell the items - i'm sure he's not doing it because he LOVES it, its out of neccessity.
as for the photo itself, i enjoy the large white border you put on this, and the tight crop/cut is very effective/attractive. very good exposure too.
well done all around as you always do!
williewhistler (16412) 2014-08-06 2:25
there is no tourist alive that could resist the charms of this smartly dressed little boy and his sweetly scented wares.
Colourful and full of charm ,you portray the moment very well.
Best regards Les.
ChrisJ (117199) 2014-08-06 2:48
A superb portrait of the profiled Tunisian boy with good sharpness and an excellent backdrop of the sea. His red shirt and hat contrast well against the blue marine colours to give a superb warm cold color contrast. The basket of jasmine for sale adds interest. Tfs!
saxo042 (37966) 2014-08-06 3:34
A very fine portrait of this little boy but the most attractive thing with this picture would be the very harmonic colour combination. The green-grey sea is the perfect backdrop for the dark red colours of his clothes.

Tiens j'ai déjà vu ce petit bonhomme quelques part !!!!....:-)magnifique portrait, netteté et couleurs excellente, vraiment une qualité d'image au top

Interesting notes makes your entry a perfect TE job.
TFS and best regards
willperrett (11712) 2014-08-06 13:54
And a charming photograph you've given us. I like the informality of the portrait, and can't decide if he knew what you were doing or not. Did you succumb to his sales patter, as payment for your photograph??
omid266 (6748) 2014-08-06 20:08
Ciao caro Luciano,

Amazing, dynamic presentation. The photo is alive, realistic and full of dynamism. It is a photo from the world of work and also a successful portrait.
adramad (48484) 2014-08-07 7:49
Fantastic portrait of this child, both for its good catch on a nice profile with sea background, such as the ideal scene, with his basket full of jasmine flowers for sale, the dress that goes with that outfit traditional adds more charm and quaintness to the scene.
Wonderful range of colors.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Very well captured. I like it
Enjoy a nice day.
mirosu (16273) 2014-08-07 8:49
Excellent photo, the "young man" is in superb light. I like the composition with well arranged space in front of the face. Superb background.
Very well done my friend.

un beau portrait d'enfant au travail en bordure de la plage, et qui tente de vendre ses fleurs à des touristes.j'aime bien son geste dea main gauche!
abmdsudi (57168) 2014-08-07 19:24
Very much enjoyed the way you moved down and close to his eye level. The crop is wonderful, sharp in focus and softness of diffuse bg. The definition in the face is astounding and yet calm appraising look drawing the eyes in filled by such fresh colour- tones and contrast. A very charming tender moment full of local flavour you have caught it beautifully. Good effort, Congrats.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-08-07 23:47
Hello Luciano - Easy to see why this small jasmine seller does a good trade; he is dressed so smartly and has an adorable face, one cannot help but be enchanted by him! I love the composition with the child off-centre and cleanly presented against the soft colours of the sea. Very nicely managed!
wolf38 (31296) 2014-08-07 23:53
Hello Luciano. What a beautiful photo. In the narrow frame only which is really important. In addition, very beautiful colors and light. I like the photo.
