This is a very nice and well composed photo. The stalls on the right side and the man walking closest to the camera give the view excellent depth. This is a fine combination of cultural heritage and human activities, just the style I like. The slightly faded colours of this scanned photo remind me of an old postcard. I like their tones very much.

Old stuff well rendered its scanned image, Mikio.
City square and the cathedral are the gathering area for a market-day on town.
Fine clear view across the big place, very good sharp details.

A very interesting picture and note. A good scan, the pale colours bring a certain nostalgic feeling to the view, in a way this makes me think of an old handpainted picture. A very attractive and well composed scene.

Like scaned photos (if they are good) because they let compare ways of live, clothes , uses
Here soft colors are good and the capture shows a market with lots of activity, the man looking at you is well placed
Well presented, regards

This reminds me of silk imprint cards we used to have in Turkey, not the scenery (of course), but the colors and lines of the picture. Another golden oldie, TFS!

Interesting Guatemala City scene for the inclusion of the outdoor vendors in front of the classical Spanish colonial style cathedral and the fountain to the far left.
