a fine and interesting presentation of a part of the town characterized by elegant buildings that evoke a past era. The casino is less elegant but attractive all the same. You've integrated it in your composition superbly using great perscpectives and an interesting foreground that adds interest and picturesquness. The palm tree holds the composition together with its height and placement. I like very much the repetitive architectural patterns, the clear and discreet facades on the right, the bright sunshine and the contrasting colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A welcoming small town square finely composed with water fountain well in place as effective focal point and seperates the flanks of buildings. Exposure is fine, rich in color tones with good overall contrast, details are vivid too. Another of your fine effort, nicely done, Congrats

A most attractive fountain flanked by a soaring palm tree. The background architecture is also very appealing, particularly that on the right. A pleasantly lit image with some interesting shadow play. Very good colours and detail.

A very beautiful city centre you have, and your point of view is superb, showing the closeness of the buildings in this urban environment, all the while still showing the great open space of the plaza. A lovely idea to have the fountain so central in the scene too, making this a really nice open place. Love the light here too
All the best

Una composicion magnifica, que pone en relieve esta preciosa plazoleta, fantastico POV con la fuente y las dos altas palmeras, ocupando el vacio del area del cielo, muy bien gestionadas las sombras y luces.
Mis felicitaciones por un marco muy elegante y apropiado.
El colorido es natural y apropiado.
Ten una buena tarde.
All the best.

Bon équilibre dans la composition avec tous les éléments qui la composent, belle luminosité.

This is a very good photo of the center from your city. I like that you place the fountain very nicely in the center with symetrical composition and the palm treews and architectures are off center to balance out and make it a more traditional composition. teh colors are bright and cheerful with good light. Lovely photo.

i bei palazzi si affacciano su questa bella piazza caratterizzata dallo zampillo dell'acqua.
C'è una bella luce che ci offre degli ottimi colori anche nelle ombre.

Beautiful corner in town, adormned with a round fontana, and tall palm trees.
Excelent modern facade of the BBVA, contrast in its architecture's to the older buildings on the oposite side of the street.
Fine taken from the POV chosen.
ChrisJ (91290) 2013-09-27 2:37
Well composed with adequate breathing space right around the circular fg fountain. Excellent sharpness and nice graphism of the darker palm trees against the lighter sky. The diagonal in the top left corner adds dynamism and lead in lines. A good warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and red magenta facade of the building at left. Tfs!
