About the photo
Old houses in Siberia, in rural areas have at the side a barn to store grains, wood, etc for the cold months
The roof of them was not as smart as the one of the houses, so, with time, grass grow up and cover them as is seen at the one at the back on the right
As I already said, there were few tourist at the museum, this couple of women was good for contrast,I noticed them coming, wait and took a photo because I wanted to remember how good may be some Summer days in Siberia, they seem not happy at all, sorry for them

Hi Maria, Indeed, there has only few people interested in this old countryside museum. Nice catch of these two visitors and they have colourful costumes for the colour contrasts to the frame. Nice composition but the strong sunlight was not helping you....bit over exposed but I like the original mood. Thank for sharing

Salut mi amiga,
I was all prepared to comment on your previous picture until I read your notes for this one...and the idea was too good to pass up. :) I love that you had the intuition to capture the human element as part of your experience, even without the surrounding context in this particular picture.
Certainly dressed to impress...I mean, dressed for the summer season, this helps attach that human aspect to the region...there really is life. Either your exposure was slightly overdone, or the poor gal on the right is ghostly white...even more so than myself!? haha She does appear quite perturbed, maybe never having seen the paparazzi before?? :)
If my Spanish is bad enough, can you imagine if I tried to write this note in Russian? :o Enjoy the new day. Take it easy.
Cheers from the dusty desert,

This is wonderful. The contrast is too good. Despite the serious looks on the faces of these women, the atmosphere does not look in the least gloomy.
Guess the colors of the dresses stand against out excellently against the green background.
PS: I am here after almost a month away from TE (for unavoidable reasons), am glad to see your photos again.

The two ladies weren't so happy to be on your picture, and very notable face expression about it.
Yet, they had given a great contrast to the mostly green surrounding scenery.
Otherwise, besides them presenting, the image would show yet "another" picture forest from this place.

As I can see I've missed many nice photos from your gallery during my TE absence. Don't worry I'll catch up soon.
This is excellent snapshot with nice view to wooden museum building. The two ladies in superb light are adding nice life to the scene.
Very well done.

realmente ellas no estaban muy felices por hacer parte de la composicion. haha.
me gusta el contraste entre sus vestidos coloridos contra el verde de la floresta adelante.
PS: en la foto de la Namibia las escaleras y muros me parecen de hormigón común, no de arena, mismo que sus colores sean semejantes.

The colors of these ladies' outfits stand out against the green background. I like the layers of colors.

Tu ose plus que moi de prendre les personnes en photo, moi j'essaye qu'il ne me voient pas :-) deux belles personnes légèrement vêtue vu la belle saison, c'est un peu comme si elle allait a la plage :-) non, je trouve cela bien, c'est relax, colorées, très belle présentation
Belle journée, ici il pleut.....encore o)

I had missed this nice photo. I think these two ladies would have looked much happier if they had known that they would be shown to the entire world on the internet :-). They are nicely dressed for a hot day in summer and their red clothes contrast perfectly to the green background. You did well to wait for them, because this is a much better picture than only the barn would have been, however interesting it is.

You write "... they seem not happy at all." Indeed, they've pegged you as a member of the paparazzi. Tasteful frame, in the complementary red and green photo.

Une scène intéressante, mais je suis obligé de mettre mes lunettes de soleil :) L'image est brillante
Je pense qu'il aurait fallu sous exposer légèrement

A natural eye catching street people shot successfully executed full of rich tones backed by such lovely green setting. Lighting is rather harsh and imho, there appears to be slight over expose on the white clothes of the women, nevertheless it's a good record shot, Congrats.

Wie gehts Maria?
Ich bin ein Fan der russischen Landschaft. Sind diese Mädchen auf der Flucht, oder haben sie Stress? Das Kleid der Dame rechts ist sehenswert, mir gefällt das Muster und die Farben.
Wie gut kannst du Deutsch? (österreichisch)
All the best, have a lovely day,

People enjoy summer season in eastern Siberia, very bright hues of her clothes and the vegetation in the bg, a traditional isba is visible on the right of the frame, have a good start of week end
