Beautiful town view, Angel.
from the chosen point you were standing, we can see both streets on sides and the nice fontana on the plaza.
Exquisite colors collected, under bright daylight of late spring.
The town looks marvelous, not many cars on traffic, and people stroll along.

This is a a very pleasant image to view with such appealing light and colours. I like the point of view and the use of the two street to give the image depth. The fountain and framing palm trees make a good focal point. The people bring the scene to life. You are certainly lucky to live in an attractive town like this and the home to Sherry!

mi piace questo angolo di città, nonostante le grandi strade, sembra molto tranquillo, la fontana zampilla elegante e i passanti passeggiano piacevolmente.

Looking at the architecture it is typical for Andalusia, except that the street are relatively wide and not narrow as usual. Good light and shadow management producing vibrant colour tones and high sharpness. Well done

A fine city view with elegant houses and a pleasant atmosphere. The colours are very fine and the light management is excellent.
ourania (18956) 2013-08-21 12:38
this looks like a very lovely and elegant place with lots of photographic opportunities. I like very much your composition and the perspectives it features. We learn a lot about the character of the city and it's nice to see people walking by and no cars obstructing the view. The trees and the shadows provide an effective contrasting frame that enhances the appeal of the sunshine and of the mild colours adorning the sky and the city at this hour. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Una hermosa imagen de tu ciudad!
Me gusta mucho la sensación de perspectiva, con las dos calles que se abren desde donde has tomado la foto.
Realmente, es una de esas fotos que me hacen sentir el deseo de saltar dentro de la imagen y comenzar a caminar por el lugar.
La profundidad de campo y la buena exposición también contribuyen al excelente resultado.
Un saludo grande desde Buenos Aires,

Belle vue des rues de chez vous, bonne profondeur, l'architecture avec la fontaine, perspective des arbres, belle composition
Sergiom (45842) 2013-08-22 6:19
J'aime beaucoup le point de vue qui semble vouloir nous envoyer dans toutes les directions, vers l'ombre ou la lumière. Les palmiers donnent beaucoup d'ampleur au paysage urbain.
