It was lucky moment. I saw this girl in Alcazar garden and I quickly grabbed my camera (hanging as always on my neck) but the camera is so slow, I managed to make only two shots, she went away. For me, the girl looked as taken from rock and roll times. I remember such dresses from early sixties. I hope you will find it nice too.
The Alcazar is a fortified palace of which the construction was ordered by Abd Al Ramn III in the year 913.
Because of it's beauty it was chosen as residence by many monarchs in the centuries that followed. It now is the residence of His Royal Majesty Juan Carlos when he visits Seville.
The extensive gardens are wonderful place for relaxing away from the herds of tourists everywhere in palace.

So you said your Sony is very slow for quick photo. Anyway I like this result, excellent capture of this fast girl in the garden. Well seen, marvelous play of the light and shades.

This is a lovely composition full of charm and atmosphere and with the girl well placed in the frame. Very pleasant dappled light and excellent colours and clarity. Good light management. Thanks for sharing this enticing moment.

mi piace molto questa foto, ha un sapore di altri tempi, sembra una foto tratta da un film di Fellini.
L'ambiente è veramente bello, l'atmosfera romantica è sottolineata molto bene dalla presenza di questa ragazza e il suo abbigliamento è perfettamente in sintonia con l'immagine.
Ps mi dispiace per te, qui c'è molto sole...

La belle robe rouge est de circonstances dans ce très beau jardin pris sous une lumière parfaite qui dégage toutes les ombres. J'aime la pose au dos tourné.

Super zdjecie - gratuluje refleksu! Scena rzeczywiscie jak z innej epoki.
Kompozycja wedlug reguly trzech bardzo tu pasuje, a polaczenie kontrastowych kolorow przyciaga wzrok do glownego tematu zdjecia.

A very pleasing shot, which has the lady well positioned in your square crop. I like the dappled light coming through the vines and the feeling of depth which comes from the columns in the background. Well done.

une très belle composition. Les couleurs sont flatteuses et le jeu de lumière à travers la végétation est superbe. Une belle photo.

The red dress goes well with the green surroundings and the woman is well placed in front of the pillars. I always find it difficult to get a good exposure in this kind of light filtered through the trees but you don't seem to have had any problems at all.

Beautiful Alcazar scene through the filtered lighting, sun and shadows, with the Romanesque & Moorish gazebo, and attractive young female in red for contrast.
Perhaps, at least in California, the polka dot dress peaked in the late 50s. This outfit would have been commonplace on Dick Clark's American Bandstand back then.
Thanks for sharing,
and I hope to visit Seville someday,

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
Looking for a little romance

Nice colours and pretty lady always make most times nice pleasing photos. This one is beautifully composed with the lady adding elegance and charm to the lovely pergola bathed in sunlight. The contrast with the colour of the background greenery gives it impact. The sunlight filtering through the leaves creates a fine play of light and shadows that adds to the beauty. Very well done.

It looks like a scene from a magazine! The dress, her pose, the classical location, all look to be put together so well for a photo shoot! Excellent timing to capture this very photogenic moment in such a place as this.
The light creates beautiful patterns on the ground too!
All the best

The leaf canopy has given you a distinct yellow/green bias (interestingly not present in your workshop). But the composition, model's pose, location, and of course that frock are just right. Mind you, I'm not sure that I don't prefer the workshop! Nice one.

Tu as bien saisi l'opportunité de réaliser cette belle photo que tu as très bien composée.

Hello Malgo - The pretty girl in the polka-dot dress elevates this shot into one that both catches the eye and charms. Well managed dappled light gives the shot a wonderful mood. Top class, I really like this.
Have a lovely weekend

I swear, this girl must be coming out directly from an Almodovar movie.
Very interesting chromatic contrasts from the red dress against all this leafy environment. Excellent composition within this square frame that suits the scene efficiently. Beautiful setting and intriguing woman.
Have a nice weekend!

most original shot from spain. definitely one of your best recently.

Have you now been hired to take print advertisement pictures? :) This looks like something straight out of a popular magazine or large billboard to showcase that particular brand of apparel. What a terrific, and apparently candid shot....this turned out super! Not only is her pose and setting beautiful, but the play of light and shade makes it even more appealing to the senses. You really came away with a great one here. Bravo! Enjoy the new day. All the best.
ourania (44318) 2014-06-07 23:03
this is a wonderful picture, very charming and atmospheric, with a scene that could be part of an interesting story or film. I like very much the lady's posture and placement on the right side, this also gives us a deep, detailed view of the lovely surroundings and the impression that she's waiting for someone to come from the left side. You managed the play of light and shadow excellently, the frame is filled with delightful colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hello Malgorzata. Yes, Lady in red. The lady is a true eye-catcher. And the ambience with columns and greenery is ideal. The red dress with white dots reminds me of the fashion designs of Coco Chanell.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

Hello dear Malgo,
Beautiful garden with a nice play of shadow and light and great atmosphere. The bonus is that girl in red well placed in the composition. Bravo for speed shooting! I like it!

Fajna scenka, ciekawa realizacja

The lovely young woman in red serves as an ornament to the already beautiful setting. The colors and depth-of-field are superlative, as is your succinct note.
