The Charles Bridge in Prague is crowded and must-to-see to every tourists. I never enjoy myself being like a "fish in tiny tin" so I often walked on the bridge in the morning. Of course there already were people but anyway I could see all quiet and a good time, like this artist working. Prague is the great and beautiful town but if possible, avoid traveling there in high season.

Well done you for having arrived at this scene early in the day before the main crowds appeared! You have captured a lovely shot here.
This must have been quite difficult light for photography as the light is quite strong and, judging by the shadows, you were shooting almost directly into the sun. So you have managed the light here remarkably well.
I like the composition with the two artists perfectly placed off to the right of the frame - one actively drawing while the other is just pondering his canvas - and with the array of completed drawings clearly seen on the left. And the fine buildings, not lit so brightly, make a fine background.
An excellent photograph with good light management, fine composition, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.

I usually call this a tourists-trap, Kaisa - but admit this guy is a masterfull painter.
With the town architecture as a backdrop, anyone can have a good muse,and the sunny day made a beautiful photo on this location.
