Walking into the small medina in Mahdia, you see so many abandoned houses and poorly preserved, but occasionally you find something beautiful, well cared for and that preserves the typical Tunisian style full of pastel colors, carvings and decorations, this window is an example.
QUALCOSA DI BELLO
Passeggiando nella piccola medina di Mahdia,si vedono tante case abbandonate e mal conservate,ma ogni tanto si trova qualcosa di bello,ben curato e che conserva il tipico stile tunisino ricco di colori pastello,intagli e decorazioni,questa finestra ne è un esempio.

che simpatico compagno di giochi che ho stasera, la tua vicinanza mi è alquanto gradita.
Vedendo la tua bella foto, eravamo più simili ieri, finestre e colori andavano a braccetto.
E' vero, ogni tanto qualcosa di bello si trova, ma bisogna avere buon occhio e saperlo valutare molto bene, proprio come hai fatto tu.

Good title, because the window is gorgeous; and wonderfully shown by you. Interestingly it's green and not blue, as it is more usual.

Ciao Caro Luciano,
You title prepared us perfectly for this beautiful piece of art. You are right, it has been cared for and maintained. All the decoration is in situ and the colours are subtle and carefully applied.
Your symmetrical composition is sharp, capturing the details nicely for our perusal.
Have a lovely day,

un dettaglio elegantissimo, basta per rendere graziosa la casa intera ma anche il quartiere. Mi piace moltissimo la semplicita' e la precisione della tua foto, tutti i motivi piccolissimi ed elaborati sono ben evidenti ed incantevoli. Hai sollevato il peso dell' ombra superbamente, le tonalita' sono sottili e gradevoli ma il mistero riguardo al interiore rimane. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
holmertz (40055) 2014-08-13 2:44
Superbly decorated windows with fine colours. A real masterpiece of craftsmanship. It pays to keep an eye on the walls, not just the street.

A composition of great beauty. Very well observed and interpreted. I love the soft colours and the gentle shadow. The sharpness is exceptional and has given these lovely details at which I could gaze for hours.
Compliments on sharing this superb piece of camera work.
Have a great new day.

Lep prozor i detalji.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the window in a traditional style ...
Good clip, and contrast nicely shown a window with details.
Nice window and details.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.
jcpix (13552) 2014-08-13 19:25
You are correct, this is a clean and clear example of a well kept window dressing. Within the simplicity of the frame there are many fine details to admire, and you sure had a nice moment of light to enhance the dimension and textures. The blank canvas from the surrounding trim is a fine accent to the colors contained within the small covering and window itself. Pure and simple, nothing more needed. :) Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.
npecanhuk (64204) 2014-08-13 19:51
The details of that window are wonderful indeed and you took a lovely, charming and beautiful picture of it too!
Sharpness, exposure, colors and composition are all excellent!

macjake (55520) 2014-08-14 4:44
I think you made this one look pretty easy, but in reality the light was rather harsh at this time of day.
the shade really helped to I think.
such a pretty design, I know my house doesn't have this type of decoration!!!!!!!!
well placed in the frame, syemmtrical, even, well exposed and with attractive colors and dorders.
rbassin (17535) 2014-08-14 8:54

A wonderful jewel of a window! Nice the soft colours and bright light of the picture.
Excellent details and general quality + good subject!
annjackman (19189) 2014-08-15 9:38
I agree that this is a very beautiful window especially the way that you frame it in white making the pastel colours really stand out. Lovely symmetry emphasises the graphic shapes and intricate design.
Gorgeous record shot of this architecture.
Kind Regards, Ann

Wonderful picture that makes me enjoy one of my favorite subjects, windows.
This show us that the artistic and delicate latticework is a marvel, even the color combination thereof, indicate their delicacy to choose them, simple and elegant framework that highlights the good work.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better.
Have a happy weekend.
lestans (17104) 2014-08-15 11:10
bellissimo questo dettaglio, molto nitidi gli intagli e i colori. Vicinissimo all'Italia ci sono queste cose tutto sommato esotiche.
photoray (11763) 2014-08-15 20:27
An attractive Moorish architecture with intricate geometric designs, elaborate and detailed.

maria-v1981 (10814) 2014-08-16 6:00
Very lovely picture.Interesting. For me - something new. I am under impression. You show different style completely than in Europe. Excellent work!!!
Noel_Byrne (23252) 2014-08-16 7:21
This really has exquisite detail and you have captured that detail so well here. The light and shadows make this particularly beautiful, and the green is such an unusual tone. It is sad to hear there are many in ruin, but inspiring to know some are kept like this.
Thanks as always
eldancer1 (27169) 2014-08-16 7:33
Very creative and beautiful window screen, much better than regular and ugly iron bars. Love the colors. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
abmdsudi (42594) 2014-08-16 8:22
An eye popping facade with strong colour contrast with the trademark color full of delicacy, lovely lines, repeated shapes and patterns. It's so effectively cropped, vividness of clarity and colours is second to none with lovely touch additional roofing darker colour as strong pointers. A seamless lens work and delicious to look! Congrats
PaulVDV (21959) 2014-08-16 13:51
Indeed, this is a fantastic example of fine craftsmanship.
In beautiful soft colours and with much green, the colour of islam.
It's worth to look up now and then.
Presented clearly and with good sharpness.
Best regards, Paul
SnapRJW (30909) 2014-08-17 0:18
This is beautiful Luciano! The fretwork makes a wonderful subject and in this shot you have managed to bring out the delicate detail convincingly.The subtle colour differences in the blue and turquoise palette is exceptionally well captured.
jmdias (54517) 2014-08-17 2:51
even small details of this balcony would give marvelous photos.
in diamantina city there is an arab inspired balcony like this, but not with such colors nor so beautiful. anyway it is part of history of the town, being in the house of a former slave woman who get married with a powerful Portuguese ruler in the 18th century. it is told she wanted to see people in the streets without being seen.
imageme (1625) 2014-08-17 11:02
Hi Luciano, The tight crop and the good exposure let us see the details of this piece of art clearly. Wonderful craftsmanship on this window with fashion colors. Well spotted piece of art, Luciano. Best regards

deermen (1938) 2014-08-19 10:24
Hello Luciano,Wonderful shot and details.

ChrisJ (96610) 2014-08-21 1:27
The intricate Islamic art detail has been well captured here on account of the superb sharpness. I like the effective tight framing and the top and side lighting has brought out the fine textural details. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent graphism and shadow detail. Tfs!

en effet tu as raison, ces fenêtres sont superbes dans les médinas, certaines moins mais celle ci on ne peut ne pas la voir de par la beauté des couleurs
merci de ce partage
delpeoples (52999) 2014-08-31 22:47
Hai ragione, questa bella casa sembra ben curate. E' proprio bella e molto caratteristica. Mi piacciono molto i dettagli e l'artifianato della parte verde.
Complimenti e ti auguro una bella settimana

Every small detail is perfectly shown.
My cong.'s, bravo.

Cette fenêtre joliment ouvragée est d'un charme irresistible à cause du rendu admirable même en zone ombragée, ce qui laisse supposer uh prise HDR pour atténuer le contraste.
