Hello friends and colleagues, today I present this interesting corner of Cordoba, the local souk source, a corner full of Andalusian flavor in the center of the Jewish quarter, I hope you enjoy. Then a few letters on the local souk.
Halfway between the Mosque-Cathedral and Almodóvar door, next to the Plaza de Maimonides, you can visit this spot so unique: the souk Municipal de Córdoba.
Also known as Craft Market because in this place have their workshop several craftsmen from Cordoba.
It is set in a Moorish-style building with two floors and a magnificent arcaded courtyard. This site was designed for craftsmen from Cordoba by the city of Cordoba in the early fifties of the century we have just left, with the uniqueness that was the first Craft Market was created in Spain.
After various vicissitudes suffered by this campus, again it was the City Council decided to revive this place in the mid-eighties.
It is an ideal place to not only find local products but also to see how works are made of any kind since they are the same craftsmen who make their work in the eyes of visitors. At this point we can find leather craftsmen, leather goods, ceramics, as well as renowned filigree of Cordoba. Certainly, leather products (cordovan and guadamecíes) are highly demanded for their outstanding quality and tradition as their appearance in Córdoba dates back to the arrival of the Muslims, around the eighth century.
Named the Municipal Souk in most guidebooks, today is a must for visitors to the city of Cordoba.

The archway makes a fine natural frame for the fountain and greenery. Good exposure control here, complemented by excellent colours and clarity.

A great art of framing work here, the doorway is a perfect way to show the pleasing greenery and fountains, and yet you still managed to retain detail inside so we can enjoy the architectural detail inside the building. Great shot, and great note. Thankd
All the best

J'aime le point de vue bien choisi qui passe sous les arches pour atteindre la belle petite fontaine dans la cour. J'aime aussi les pots de fleurs suspendus qui apportent un joli esthétisme.

Hello Angel - nice frame within a frame here - lovely composition nice and colourful with a lovely fountain.

Una composizione finissima e molto elegante.
Curata in ogni dettaglio e soprattutto nel dosaggio della luce mostra un angolo sconosciuto della belle città, ma rappresentativo della cura e dell'amore degli andalusi per la natura e la luminosità degli ambienti.
Taglio e ripresa perfetta.
Nitidezza di grande livello.
Ciao e buona giornata

Good use of the archway to frame your subject. I like the detail in the shade areas with the soft colours. A lovely picture and note to accompany it.
Kind Regards, Ann

Viewers are drawn up to the stunning fresh green color, the fountain and your technique is excellent. The souk outside being the significant subject is pulling the eye about the frame thru the attractive shadowed passageway creating excellent lead-in lines. The colors and lighiting are sublime with good depth and contrast. I must say there's something appealing about this photo. Great capture, Congrats.

Beautiful photo, very nice idea to take it through the arch, it creates a nice frame, good light management

Hello Angel - The framing of the fountain and pant-covered wall by the archway adds to the feeling of the place being secreted away from the world. The more I look at the shot, the more the quiet corner pulls. A beautiful location and a well managed shot. Warm regards Rosemary

To me this looks like really typical Andalusian. And of course it's a very beautiful sight.
The picture is an excellent invitation to discover the small, hidden but wonderful corners of Córdoba.
Beautifully framed. Perfect light management.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Angel,another magnificent corner whit a very special light,perfect symmetry,exposure and colors,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

A very pleasant corner of the courtyard area. I've always enjoyed the quiet and cozy settings these provide, there's just something about the gentle flow of water from a fountain or stream that is most peaceful. This is some stark lighting contrast, which is most often quite difficult to balance...but you have found a very nice medium that shows detail in both light and shade. A delightful composition using the natural arch and wall flowers of pattern for added interest to the relatively minimal scene. It looks inviting and warm. Have a great weekend ahead my friend.
Best wishes from the U.S.,

Nice use of the arch to frame the attractive collection of suspended potplants in the bg, all nicely arranged with good breathing space, on the back wall. Good shadow detail and only minimal oe in the bright highlights yet still with superb shadow detail and excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

Esta tambien se me habia pasado, muy bien visto este encuadre, que queda ideal con el arco que enmarca la fuente y todas las macetas en la pared, muy bonito el efecto de sombras y luces en la imagen.
Buena luminosidad y nitidez, con un colorido muy natural y agradable.
Un magnifico trabajo. Me gusta
Que tengas una buena noche.
P/D. Al final llegaron las lluvias, hoy el dia es triston y con paraguas.
