What a beautifully mysterious image Swiatek - fantastic exposure and the three elements of horse, girl and coke can make a curious dreamlike relationship in this environment - great colours and the way that light dances on the pillar ........great stuff!

Nice seeking game this picture. It took me a while.
Great composition and colours. Poetic but clear.
Thanks and regards, Gerrit
P.S: I photographed the same place but very different.

You have an amazing eye, Swiatek, these yellows just pop, they are clear and beautiful, with all the fantastic reflections. It is clear from miles away that it is a nygus shot... exquisite in composition

Czesc Swiatek. Indeed a great shot, good low PoV to get close to the water, the rippled reflections are great. Nice work.

Very nice graphic image, Swiatek, with those bold outlines and the symmetry. The horse is a nice mellowing accent. Unfortunate that the girl has to be a small detail, but it would have to be a different sort of image to make her larger. I like the varied textures, too. Regards, Ken.

I'm thinking of visiting Guatemala and your picture just motivated me more. Beautiful composition, great colors and nice reflection. I like the geometrical lines. Regards, Yvonne
