Has captado una buena fotografía, me gusta el encuandre que le has dado.
Has tenido suerte al fotografiar el volcan, a veces hay está nublado y no se aprecia.

Bonita foto, el volcan se ve impresionante y hace un buen balance a la foto. Las casas estilo colonial conservan mucha de la historia del lugar. Buena composicion.

Moody photo for me...
I like that simplicity and authenticity... just catch a moment - walking people, breaking car, some cloud flows between camera and mountain... line of lamps along street... those cars,glases... I can almost feel touch of window crates ...
I'd like else : to lie a wchile on a pavement and to hear sounds and to nose smells of that moment
Gracias for this photo

Volcan Agua is temperamental when it comes to photographs. Usually it hides behind too many clouds and this shot could have used a few more. Since that is out of our control you got a great shot from a popular spot.

Hi Juan, I like the composition of this shot generally, although it would be interesting to see people framed more directly in the shot, to give it a greater sense of humanity. I realize this is tough to do when you're moving around just trying to get a shot (without getting hit by a car, for instance). Nonetheless, a fine shot.
