A horse and cart outside the Grand Mosque in Cordoba southern Spain, which has been converted into a church after the defeat of the Moors from Morocco in 1492. They are used for transporting tourists around town, but I walked. Less camera shake and blur! It's a wonderful hybrid of architecture from both religions. Entirely in shadow, so I've boosted both saturation and levels.

Namaste Chris, a nice catch. Like the cart under the nice texture of the wall. Light and colours are superb. I might search some right side POV to provide some space in front of the cart as well show the main design of the wall. Overall a very pleasing photograph. Thanks for sharing.

Hope all is well with you!
I like this type of unpretentious yet finely detailed and well composed shot. As you no doubt intuited at the time, the horse 'n cart makes a really good foil to the lovely exterior of this great building, with those pastel colourings and varied shapes and textures. You placed it just right in the frame, not too far off centre and not too close. I remember Cordoba from a visit about 37 years ago! I probably have some slides somewhere; must bring that old cardboard box in the garage back indoors for some scanning.

a gloriously detailed and perfectly composed shot this. Full of character and a testament to your post processing prowess. Love the calmness of this image and of course the amazing mix of textures. Elegant imagery!
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

una composizione molto raffinata che sintetizza molto bene le caratteristiche di questa città dell'Andalusia.
La carrozzella assai diffusa nel folcklore locale e la retrostante architettura di tipico stampo arabo possono essere assunti a simbolo di questa città, se non dell'intera regione.
Molto belli anche i colori assai delicati che però mettono in risalto una splendida definizione.
Ciao e buona giornata

The presence of the carriage and of the horse has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the facade of the GRrnd Mosque. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

On voit plus souvent des photos de l'intérieur de la grande mosquée de Cordoue et pourtant l'architecture extérieure ne manque pas d'intérêt. Bonne composition avec une bonne exploitation de la calèche qui attend ses touristes.

I imagine the summer heat in Cordoba as remember the 40C on the day we were there (6/1998), and remain in the shadows of those Masquita walls as well.
Beautiful moment collected, typical Andalusian adorned windows.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

A very beautiful presentation of the many architectural decorations and details of this mosque/cathedral facade.
The horse cart adds life and makes an excellent foreground.
Best regards, Paul
