I like this time of the day. It is not dark, but here and there lights begin to show up, and people are in the streets. This particular place in Positano, reflects the atmosphere I enjoy. I am also fond of the
orange which mixes with the bluish tones of the hour.
This small area could well become the stage for a theater play, very couleur locale indeed.

i love this picture - i nearly can feel the atmosphere there: tension of waiting for something important to happen in the evening;
beautiful colours and excellent exposure control;
have a nice sunday, jerzy

I like the ensemble cast here Izzet, fantastic positioning - it is as you say a set for the theatre -different stories and lives - compositionally I am not so sure of this one though - I keep thinking that perhaps a lower point of view would have worked really well and I find myself wanting to see more or even the whole of the guy in the foreground. It is also a little strange for me to have the child on the right out of focus - if it had been a significant enough movement blur it would have added something to the otherwise static feel of the photo but as a relatively still blur it just makes this lad stand out against the sharpness of the rest when perhaps we should be more able to concentrate on his relationship with the man across the road - the gaze is perfect for this. The colours and shapes and spaces are really interesting though.
As for enjoyment - I get a wonderful feeling from this and can dream for the rest of the day!

j'aime bien l'atmosphere rendue par cette photo, c'est la fin de la journée, on sort se promener et apprécier a fraicheur de la soirée apres une chaleur étouffante. joli ce petit escalier sur lequel sont assis les personnages de gauche.

Looks like a picture for the set, Izzet. All present, looking a bit bored - or stressed by the photographers!
Very colorful; specially I like the archtecture here!

It seems like those people are posing for you but I know that they are not. That is what is most interesting in this picture. Everyone is perfectly still. Now, that's something! I am lookin at this with astonishment. Wow.

Hi Izzet, I think you've caught a very interesting atmosphere. The people seem both very relaxed and quite tense as if they're waiting for something to happen. A feeling of time being suspended.

Very nice capture of the more than typical evening atmosphere of the southern italian towns in the summer..reminds me of past holidays... Cheers, Léonie

the composition here is splendid - people are nicely scaterred all over the frame - looks like a theatre, the light was very nice - colors are warm and saturated. there is only one flaw - thet boy on the right side is not sharp - has he moved or what..? somehow it disturbs me, spoils the picture a bit. but it is still very nice photo, i like it very much

All that people that were waiting for....nothing!

Interesting shot Izzet,
With all these people so perfectly placed, I'd almost think you hired them as your models. hahaha
Nice candid/ daily life shot.

bence boşa çekilmiş bir fotoğraf..hani filmde son kare kalırda onu da doldurayım deriz ya onun gibi bir şey.. rastgele.. ama nedense bir çok insan bu fotoğrafa bile enteresan demiş.. belki benim görmediğim bir şeyler vardır.. kolay gelsin..

This is terrific stuff. With so much going on, the scene is positively throbbing with life.
It does seem as though they are on stage in a play, all perfectly placed as they are.

I didn't recognize your style in this picture, yet it attracted me immediately. I love the colors and the composition with all the people in their daily lives. NOw I want to visit Positano. Regards
