Another photo of Jaisalmer, captured early in the morning in the old city, within the walls of the old fort. The old Jailsalmer is an incredible place because of the old fort, but also because of the magnificent architecture and the old havelis.
Here we have one of the old streets, seen from the window of one of those havelis.
At the top we have several chillies and a lime, to keep away the bad spirits.

A very nice POV, an arch with chilies and lime are in silhouette framing the old town. In contrast, you have a very old town with a very warm color. The contrast of those two makes this image stunning one. The way people live there is very informative. And the details captured of the old houses are very intriguing. The image is very sharp, more look , more I discover something new, it is a very successful approach, very creative way to manage a frame of photo.
Very best regards,

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue et le cadrage vertical qui permet d'inclure dans l'image ce qui ressemble à des piment qui sêchent au grand air.La lumière frappe de plein fouet cette habitation et en fait bien ressortir tous les détails.

un soggetto molto bello che la luce ha reso ancora più piacevole rendendo il colore della pietra molto caldo... tonalità tenui che colpiscono ed un POV dall'alto perfetto per esaltare questo tipo di architettura. Complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio

This is an interesting shot for me in many ways.. I like the way you framed the shot n the most I like is the inclusion of the chillies n lime that I wished to photograph n had no success :)
The details n management of light are lovely too.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa

the shop and street are in perfect light and the composition is strong.
I like the chillies that hang like a spider in the frame as a topic very much.

La captura es muy curiosa con esos pimientos colgados a secar sobre el arco.
Muy linda la fachada de esa tienda que contrasta con los edificios vecinos.
Excelente luz y óptima definición.

Une cité magnifique.Quelle chance de visiter l'Inde. L'architecture est belle et puis cette couleur est unique.
Ana, Merci pour ce très beau partage.

Beautiful shot, great composition, the partial arch makes a delightful framing creates a private, quiet little world. Lovely play with shadows in subtle morning light, colors and textures. Very effective compo in high vantage point and good diagonal beyond the frame. You have managed to retain plenty of detail in those buildings, the hanging is an excellent addition absolutely catch the eyes in, a great focal of interest. Awesome rich colors and the contrast is stunning. This is splendid image, great effort, Congrats

a spectacular composition here. Like the natural framing by the arch. Like the silhouettes, like the chilly-lemon combination at top. Nice to see that beautiful haveli through it. Great light and fine colours. Great shot. Tfs.

los chiles y la lima colgando del arco, supuestamente para mantener alejados los malos espíritus, son un detalle muy explícito sobre las creencias y supersticiones populares en este país. Y su inclusión en tu encuadre, en un contraluz bien tratado, añade mucho interés a la composición, además de la arquitectura que vemos en la calle, bajo un bonito juego de luz y sombras.
Es un bonito trabajo, muy bien realizado.

Ola dear Ana
A fascinating POV which takes this photo out of just being a nice pic and into the realm of being a very interesting and attractive photo. I love the detail and you have managed the shade and light conditions admirably.

I think I know where you took this picture from...Nathmal Haveli & you picture is a perfect contra to mine :-)
Nice view with the silhouetted nimbu-mirchi or lime-chillies acting as strong focus point

beautiful street scene with some characteristic architecture in a great light. I like very much the original framing with the arch and something hanging down from it.
