I realized that exactly one year ago I was in Hoi An, the most lovely Vietnam town. I felt nostalgy for the yellow houses and the women in triangular hats. So, as a break from African landscapes the view of the young Vietnamese artists.
Wiki: Hội An is a city of Vietnam, on the coast of the South China Sea. It is home to approximately 120,000 inhabitants. It is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Hoi An Ancient Town is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. Its buildings and its street plan reflect the influences, both indigenous and foreign, that have combined to produce this unique heritage site.
I have two photos of the same group. In fact, I wanted to post the photo that is in Workshop. But this one is also nice, I think, so I will not change.

Excellente prise de vue et très intéressant de voir ces jeunes artistes attentionnés à leurs oeuvres. J'irais bien les rejoindre avec mes pinceaux mais je suis trop vieux. Belle composition et superbes couleurs.
Félicitations!... et toutes mes amitiés,

Did you show us the "wrong" picture? They are both nice, but I prefer the one in the ws because of the longer perspective. But this is good too, showing us the busy girls, flowers, steps of the wooden house. No need to worry about the possible mistake.

Hi dear Malgo, a great world traveler
Wow this time for Vietnam, I admire your diversity of your fields. Lovely and heartwarming image indeed. Well balanced allocation of 4 girls is wonderful. Thank you for your sharing and have a good day!

Both pictures here are very good, I can understand your hesitation here, which one to choose first. The parallel lines of the stairs provide a good background and girl are nicely positioned, all of them turned in the same direction, along a diagonal line. You can´t miss the comcentration in their expressions. It would have been interesting to see the results of their work (if you had sneaked up behind them). Could have been another WS...

Hello Dear Malgorzata,
This is a superb shot, and so too is the version in workshop. I go back and forth in my own mind. The other one has the water puddle, so desirable, but it is too linear in the placement of the young art students.
Warm regards, enjoy the Sunday, and enjoy the Holiday Season...
