The clock tower from the village stands proudly against the nice sky and over the narrow street. People and cars bring perspective. The light is good with sharp details.

a superb composition that creates a deep, solid and attractive setting for the three ladies to walk in. I love the sense of depth and the 3D effect that gives to the viewer the impression that they are standing in the alley, a few metres away from the ladies. The background is very attractive. There's a wonderful sense of balance in the lighting and colours, luminosity and shadows have been moderated superbly. The atmosphere is very pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Una composicion ideal con la perspectiva que da la calle, dandonos el enfoque hacia la airosa torre, las tres mujeres ponen el toque de vida en la imagen, muy bien gestionada la luminosidad, habiendo logrado una gran calidad en los blancos, muy bonito cielo con ese ligero azul y las nubecillas blancas.
Gran nitidez y detalles, con un bonito marco para redondear en magnifico trabajo.
Ya veo por la tele que seguir casi ahogados, esperemos mejore el fin de semana, aqui hoy tambien esta lloviendo bastante, asi que en casita....
Pasa una buena tarde.
Un fuerte abrazo.

bonita y espontánea escena captada con un eficaz encuadre vertical, que nos permite ver a la gente paseando por estas lindas callejuelas, y al mismo tiempo disfrutar la deliciosa arquitectura blanca de las casas y del campanario de la iglesia.
La imagen es nítida y tiene un buen equilibrio de luces y sombras, con unos colores naturales y vivos.
Es una bella composición, rica y agradable.
PD: gracias por tu referencia a la rotunda remontada, que yo no esperaba, si te soy sincero. Eso es fútbol en estado puro, esperemos que dure.
