Hello Jean Philippe,
Great image of the architecture in this old street with archway. Would have been nice to include just one old local gentleman with a walking stick coming through the archway. However, I guess you had to make do with the tourists.

Hello Jean Philippe,
This is a very interesting old town and I like the view through the archway. Very sharp with lots of detail in the stonework and shadow areas. Very well done and TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Bonjour Jean Philippe,
This is my sort of photograph, an excellent lead, good details of the location to give a 'feel' of the place and an archway through which we experience a sense of mystery.
Have a great day,

Old allies are always an intriguing subject to take photos, and you managed beautifully on this, Jean Philippe.
Light and shadow mingle along, niot an easy task - but added marvelous depth through.
The adorned windows and the archs are attractive sight especially for tourists who stroll uphill's on picture.

prise sympa qui montre une ruelle ou l'on a envie de s'y promener. Belle netteté de l'image.
Ou que l'on soit, on trouve toujours des merveilles à se promener dans les vieux quartiers.
