one more photo from place called Hrelic;
well if you want to know more about this very "famous" street market, you can read my last note...
this is just one view on Hrelic, it was early sunday morning and already there were 1000 people wandering around, looking for some stuff to buy... or to sell...
and of course I was one of them, hehehe...

That's a brilliant composition Ana, specially how you managed to place her hand bag into the upper right corner, it gives a LOT of dynamism.
The colors simply jumped at my throat when I looked at the thumbnail, even though the sky is completely washed out it enhances the color strength.

Ana, ANA! This is an absolutely lovely shot. Fantastic, dynamic compo with thislady in the foreground, rummaging through the pile, the whole enhanced by punchy colors that POP. I have seen you skirting around the edges of this composition, and now you have succeeded!
Bravo. It's a warm, humid Saturday night here in Tokyo and I salute you, Ana, and wish you a wonderful weekend!
ps. I tell you what, I will put my money where my mouth is about this shot. IN WITH MY FAVs
It is done!

hi ana, wonderful POV and excellent colours. i like the detail of her feet treading on the clothes, perfectly matching the desperation tone of the title...

Very nice omposition! The low POV and DOf make it feel like I am really tehre. Great colors too. You got a nice comment from Luko! He is very honest and hard to please (as well as an amazing photographer) sothat is a much better ego booster then my comments. ;)
Great job! JP

A different point of view and also interesting. The composition is good and is a good capture.
Ah, I forget. Also an interesting note.

An amazing photograph, really! You have many good ones, but this is special.
Most of what I want to say has already been said. (I hate it when Furachan, or Luko, or Jcandeli beat me to a picture because they leave so little to say, and this time they ALL got here first!)
Anyway, this woman's posture is great, the colours are vibrant, and yes, the purse is perfectly placed.
The depth of field is excellent, leaving the other people just a little blurred so they don't interfere with the foreground, but clear enough that you don't end up staring at them wondering what they're doing or what they really look like.
But most of all it is the woman's stance... such an unlikely angle! And yet perfect. Great stuff.
Once again I notice that your second photo of something (this market) is better than the first one you posted (the other example is the pair of photos of the girl getting a tattoo). I don't know if that means anything, but I thought I'd mention it.
P.S. JP is right about Luko, by the way. (a) He's damned good. (b) I've had a very useful comment from him, and it was even quite nice, but it wasn't nearly as nice as the one you got. You KNOW you're doing well when you get that.
