A tourist admiring the 17th century arches at the Cloître des Ursulines in Poligny. This is at least what I think it is. I don´t really remember. I wish I knew.

I really like the contrasting ages of the buildings and the clarity. It seems like a very good depiction of southern Europe - and then your tourist is fantastic. She looks like she just remembered something and has been stopped in her tracks. I guess one could say you have nice contrasting motifs. Well done!

Fine vaults and nice colours with a good balance between grey and yellow. I think that unknown woman is probably just trying not to show that she's yawning at yet another old building, or she may be hiding her face from the obnoxious photographer.

A very good capture of this beautiful architecture. The tourist apparently enraptured adds much to the mood of the scene. I like the point of view and the glimpse of another interesting old building through the archway. Great light and natural colours. Excellent clarity.

Varma och tilltalande färger! Varför turisten döljer ansiktet har jaqg svårt att veta, och jag har heller inget förslag.

A fine sharp picture well composed. Lovely colours and textures in the stonework. I like the repetition of the semi-circular arches. The passageway through to the brightly-lit area with another interesting building looks inviting too.
The tourist pondering which way to go adds to the interest.
