Plaça de Catalunya is a large square in central Barcelona that is generally considered to be both its city centre and the place where the old city and the 19th century-built Eixample meet. The plaza occupies an area of about 50,000 square metres. It is especially known for its fountains and statues, its proximity to some of Barcelona's most popular attractions. Source: Wikipedia

A very pleasant atmosphere to this well crafted image. Perfectly framed and exposed. Lovely warm light and interesting shadow play. Well observed and beautifully executed.

una bella immagine ben movimentata dagli spruzzi d'acqua e animata dalla presenza umana.
Bella la luce soft che avvolge la scena.

przyznam szczerze,ze Placa Catalunya nie jest moim ulubionym placem w Barcelonie.Jak dla mnie jest zbyt duży(wole np.Placa Espanya).
Natomiast twoja kompozycja podoba mi się bardzo.To pierwsze zdjęcie z tego placu,ktore nie jest zbyt ogolne i uchwyca świetnie swego rodzaju intymny nastroj tej sceny.Na pewno pomaga w tym bardzo piękne,ciepłe światło,ktore dodaje tutaj zdecydowanie uroku.Do tego swietny kadr.

J'aime beaucoup cette petite intrusion dans l'intimité de ces deux dames près de la fontaine. Le moment est beau ainsi que la lumière qui frappe les jets d'eau.

a good capture of this street scene, well composed : the 2 girls talking quietly under the shadow of the maternal statue.
good light and colours.

a superbly crafted and composed shot this. Delicate light and three graces to make it all the more appealing. It is a perfectly executed shot and quite elegant presentation.
Have a great weekend - regards Brian.

Your pov allowed to creat a nice compo with the sculpture at right.

la composizione mi piace molto e mi ha colpito la differenza tra la statua, una donna con bambino, con le due ragazze ancora giovani, che probabilmente in futuro avranno figli.

Hi dear Malgorzata
Another wonderful and so tasteful image! Yes this is your work and your own work, I am sure. That reflect your high inspiration and high sense. Best and marvelous combination of each components. Two lady's action is so lovely. Strong sun light adds better atmosphere too. Top quality shot as usual. Thanks for your sharing and have a good weekend!

Jolie composition avec une intéressante lumière soulignant les éléments forts de l'image, la statue, la fille en jupe rose et le jet d'eau.

A delightful and very elegant photo. Of course, the gentle light falling on the statue and the girl, contributes to the tranquility of this scene in what is usually a crowded and busy plaza. Lovely interplay of light and shadow, and a fine backdrop achieved by your very thoughtful choice of viewpoint, and no doubt your cropping. I like the subdued tones and controlled contrast. Well done.

You noticed the wonderful juxtaposition of the statue and the people and made a charming photo. The light has caught the scene perfectly and the picture is beautifully rendered. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

I like the mood of this composition with this intimate moment captured in a discreet way and with a well done framing. The play of light and shadow is pleasant to the eye. The movement of the water has been well captured and the sharpness is remarquable.

A well observed and well composed shot that gives a real sense of scale to the statue. Great light too.

Have a nice day

Good evening Malgorzata,
A nice moment take, conbined with the backdrop of water-jets from the known fontana, and beautiful statue of mother and child.
Young ladies love to chat... interesting to know what about..., and there was fine golden light on the one in left side.
A very nice idea, well shown image.
Cricri (108693) 2012-10-16 8:21
Un endroit plutôt sympa et agréable pour faire la causette entre copines, belle statue de la mère avec son enfant, la lumière est belle aussi, très jolie
CLODO (30836) 2012-10-22 1:20
I missed this confident moment, sheltered from the sun by a statue seeming to try to hear their voices.
Good everyday situation few of us will notice.
cigdom (2592) 2012-10-23 11:26
I think in this photo you used the light very well. Very nice compotisiton with beautiful colours. A lovely daily photo!
PecoBud (3824) 2012-10-29 13:48
Malgo, thank you so very much for your kind words and keeping me and my family in your thoughts and prayers. As I try to get back into the mix of things here on TE, I read the critiques of my last two photos and find it very hard holding back tears. It's nice to have an extended family that hasn't even met me before, which makes you all even that more special to me.
Beautiful POV with gorgeous lighting and with perfect clarity, great presentation Malgo!!
TFS........Your Friend from California........Buddy
