una bella scena di vita ambientata in un bellissimo centro storico.
Questa è una città che offre tanta storia, non l'ho mai visitata, ma ho letto molte cose.
Mi piace vedere il movimento delle persone tra le bancarelle del mercato, il cielo non è bellissimo, ma credo che rispecchi la realtà del luogo nella maggior parte dei periodi.

Despite the rainy conditions, you have captured the busy mood of the market and detailed the tall elegant houses. I was really surprised by the variety of styles in this quite small area.
You have chosen a good angle, which creates a very natural lead, sharing with the shoppers, from f/g to b/g.
I remember, when we were here, there was a man with a performing pig, in the square. The pig had a remarkable ability to open boxes to be rewarded with food!
Have a lovely Sunday,

I like this photo with the town market. The market place is located between nice old, typical town houses.
You have done well to produce such a lovely shot in pretty difficult diffuse light conditions. Well done.

You have captured this animated scene very well despite the dreary weather conditions. The monumental fountain makes a good focal point whilst the attractive surrounds add to the success of the image. I like the subdued light and understated colours.

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the many historical buildings and wide sqaure with the market of many small shops. It looks like a typical town scape in Europe. So, it saves well for not breaking an old building, and is utilizing. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and tasteful color combination.

once again I'm stunned that this scene was captured at the beginning of summer. You are offering us a good description of the marketplace and the imposing and picturesque buildings that surround it. Your composition is well balanced, there's superb depth and a lot of architectural details stand out for the viewer to study. You rendered the moody lighting such as it was and the scene is natural and interesting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Bonne idée de montrer l'autre coté de la place, un jour de marché et de pluie! ce qui n'empêche pas la présence de beaucoup de personnes, l'architecture vaut le coup d'il, intéressante note avec les liens
Très beau dimanche

The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The presence of the people is adding lkife to the scene. The point of view is showing the détails, the colors of the market and of the buildings. The rainy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

Even on a cloudy, rainy day there's no hiding the beauty of these European villages. A good arrangement to show ample portions of both the architecture and the market/square. The multi-colored tent tops over the stalls add some color to the otherwise "grey day." I'm enjoying the multitude of windows within this composition, plenty of shapes for me to scan over. :)
Despite the flat light conditions and poor weather, you've taken and presented a fine photo depicting the daily activity around the marketplace, and have also provided a good look down the street and off into the distance. Hope you've had a nice weekend.

A very nice photo. I like those colored canopies that cheer up an otherwise dreary day.
papagolf21 (81632) 2013-12-15 11:47
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Le jour de marché est sacré pour les habitants. L'on peut voir les produits exposés, connaître les vendeurs et la qualité des articles.
L'image rend bien compte de l'ambiance générale malgré la pluie.
