Witaj Gosiu, fajne zdjęcie z "ludzkim elementem". Trudno zreszta zrobic zdjecie bez ludzi, bo turystów mnóstwo. Super ostrośc, wszystkie delikatne szczegóły sa dobrze widoczne.
Moja podróz przebiega wspaniale, spotkałam Angela w Jerez (spotkania z trekkersami to dla mnie istotna część każdej podróży:). Byłam w Kadyksie, teraz jestem w Sevilli, jutro Kordoba :). Bardzo gorąco!

pierwsze co rzuca mi sie w oczy patrzac na ta fotografie to piekna fasada meczetu. Dzieki bardzo dobrej ostrosci wszystkie jej finezyjne detale sa bardzo dobrze widoczne. Grupa dziewczat dodaje calosci zycia i bardzo urozmaica kompozycje. Bardzo dobre uzycie pionowego kadu i swietne wyczucie koloru.

Nice capture of an animated moment. I like how you presented the spirited moment among the girls and how you presented the facade of the mosque showing some of its lovely details. Nice work!
Have a nice day!

A charming capture of these young ladies against a most beautiful backdrop. A superb composition benefiting from lovely warm light and colours. The rendering of the detail in the architecture is at the top. Great work, bravo!

ragazze.....ben posizionate davanti a una magnifica architettura.
Proprio bella, come il tuo scatto, un perfetto mix tra antiche e giovani bellezze.

I am always impressed by the quality of your images. The girls are well placed within the image. The detail and balance of the architecture has been superbly handled.
Sergiom (61036) 2014-05-15 4:55
Girls just want to have fun... Elles ont l'air de passer un très bon moment toutes ensemble. L'histoire est belle surtout avec ce superbe arrière plan.
BennyV (13846) 2014-05-15 5:04
Terrific use of that impressive backdrop. The combination with the young girls really works.
A great crop!
holmertz (41695) 2014-05-15 7:37
This entrance wall is a miracle of architecture but for a photo it would have been fairly boring without those girls. They were probably not aware of how much they contributed to your photo, but they surely did. Likewise a photo of just the four girls would not have been terribly interesting, but with this fantastic wall behind them - wow!
jadesgran (5357) 2014-05-15 7:49
This is a charming picture you have posted.I don`t know if you planned the shot with the girls before hand, but it certainly made an interesting image. The contrast between the girls and the lovely cathedral works very well.The architecture is beautiful and the clarityis good.

Doskonała scenka, a architektura jest koronkowa, szczegóły są super, świetne ujęcie
photoray (12481) 2014-05-15 9:29
The young females serve as a fine foreground to the very elaborate Moorish architecture and art dominating. I am attracted to the multiple arches within arches façade.
Thanks for sharing,
ikeharel (58113) 2014-05-15 10:30
Good evening Gosia,
You had intended to show the beautiful architecture's design on the Masquita outer walls, but those young ladies set right on the spot - and you had no chice but including them on the scene. A nice resulted photo, smiling at the camera, and not aware they are on TE.
Or, I can write this other way: you intended to show the girls enjoying Cordoba, but had the beautiful backdrop included...
cornejo (32116) 2014-05-15 11:46
Witaj Gosia, I like this composition with the interesting scene of daily life and the beautiful facade of the mosque in background, very well captured in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy weekend.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
rbassin (18451) 2014-05-15 12:26
Une très belle composition, l'architecture de la façade est superbe et bonne insertion des jeunes filles sur le mur, qui animent agréablement cette photo.
mesutilgim (85318) 2014-05-15 12:53
Another very nice capture from Cordoba with those four beauties in front of this architectorial beauty !
TFS and best regards
Gigidusud (16289) 2014-05-15 13:05
Great framing of this beautiful architecture. Well saw the inclusion of girls that animate the scene. Well done!
jjcordier (76850) 2014-05-15 15:58
J'en connais quatre qui aimeraient bien avoir cette remarquable photo chez elles!
lousat (77792) 2014-05-15 16:14
Hi Gosia,absolutely beautiful! 4 magnificent girls under a spectacular facade,this is the pic of the day on TE,no doubts! No needs other words but a long standing ovation to you..ehhee....have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
jcpix (13686) 2014-05-15 17:02
Wow, what a fantastic shot. Great idea to fill the frame with the detail and big shapes we see here, while including the human element which has brought an air of playful atmosphere to the scene. A splendid combination and a result which both captivates and entices the senses on many levels. The girls may be small in comparison, but they infuse life and energy into the setting, and their backdrop alone is enough to grab attention...but the two subjects together make a wonderful result. Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.

kolejna wspaniala praca. Pieknie skompnowane zdjecie pokazujac przepieken detale. Sliczne zdjecie. Bardzo mi sie podoba.
Periko (2693) 2014-05-15 19:57
Beautiful colors and textures on this magnificent Mudejar facade.
Splendid light and perfect focus.
kato (11630) 2014-05-15 22:41
You're capturing well this architecture and girls by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see facade of the Mosque–Cathedral with beautiful Isramic ornament design and the combination of tasteful color. I like its geometrical pattern.
npecanhuk (66256) 2014-05-16 1:25
That façade is very nice and attractive and you took an original picture of it with the inclusion of those young ladies!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, large vertical format, slim black borders and, of course, composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
mirosu (14434) 2014-05-16 3:06
Excellent view to historical façade. The light is superb all details perfect. I like the arrangement with group of young girls in foreground, adding nice life to the scene. Nice old-young combination.
Very well done.
PaulVDV (22657) 2014-05-16 9:59
This is a splendid architecture shot showing the details excellently in their natural colours.
At the same time the four girls add a pleasant human touch.
Perfect sharpness and clarity.
Best regards, Paul
adramad (38509) 2014-05-16 11:26
A superb POV and great symmetry, showing one of the doors of the mosque and one of the windows on each side, the girls on the wall, put a very sympathetic and vital touch to the composition.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.
kwekwekan (1076) 2014-05-16 11:31
A fine display of Moorish architecture - you have captured the intricate details with great clarity and sharpness and the beautiful symmetry shines with your perfect straight on POV. The young girls are also cleverly included, providing an interesting dichotomy of the traditional and the modern.
rigoletto (34269) 2014-05-17 3:19
exactly my type of photo: an impressive piece of architecture and some figures in front of it, adding life and giving idea about size comparison. this could well be a photo from morocco. very nice moorish façade and a neat presentation of it.
tatadalou (6341) 2014-05-17 4:07
Great shot ! The symetric framing and the sharpness highlight all the nice details of this rich architecture. The group of 4 girls seems to enjoy the place.
Good job !
Fis2 (86225) 2014-05-17 4:31
Ciekawa fasada i piekne dziewczyny ;)
Podobaja mi sie okienka.
Dobry kadr i kolory.
Nicou (123144) 2014-05-17 7:04
Avec les quatre jeunes fielle assises quelle vue quelle entrée avec l'arche quel rendu avec cette fine architecture ces détails sueprbe.
bravo et amitié
jhm (139952) 2014-05-17 8:03
We see clear the North african influence architecture with these façade of the mosque.
You did excellent addition, with the four young girl in foreground
I like the nice soft colours also the sharpness and clarity.
Excellent composition and good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
Silvio1953 (123431) 2014-05-17 8:49
Ciao Gosia, beautiful composition with lovely girls on fantastic architecture, excellent clarity, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
abmdsudi (43714) 2014-05-17 10:02
Great group portraiture in a relaxed informality that you convey so well complementing the famous architecture in the backdrop filled with a wealth of immaculate details, eye popping colours and pleasant clarity. Remarkable capture, Congrats
Cricri (107236) 2014-05-18 10:25
Un cadrage précis de la mosquée, merveilleux détails et décorations architecturales, le plus avec la présence des jeunes filles, belle composition
PiotrF (9572) 2014-05-19 13:23
ladnie wypatrzona, radosna scenka.
Oczywiście w pierwszym momencie uwage przykuwaja szczegoly architektoniczne, ale szerokie usmiechy przykuwaja uwage, zmieniajac charakter zdjecia. Swietna, niebanalna praca.
COSTANTINO (56179) 2014-05-21 22:52
Good morning my dear friend
your shots bring your personal stamp
and have your personal style
I liked the way you presented this
scenery with the most interesting
details I am always interested
of the quality of your work
have a nice time
jemaflor (85394) 2014-05-25 23:07
Beautiful architecture and details for the decoration, perfect sharpness and exposure, interesting composition with people to give life at the photo of the monument.
kasianowak (6813) 2014-05-28 7:13
Swietna kompozycja, bardzo podoba mi sie to, jak przycielas fasade w ten sposob usuwajac nieistotne elementy rzeczywistosci. "Tytulowe" dziewczyny nadaja poczucie skali i wprowadzaja wspolczesny element. Jest w tym zdjeciu mnostwo fascynujacych elementow, moznaby na nie patrzec godzinami.
bona (12839) 2014-05-28 18:28
Hello Gosia another great photo!
Love the way you show the girls in front of this wonderful and rich wall. Well done.
delpeoples (53167) 2014-05-30 9:15
Witaj dear Gosia
A brilliantly composed photo. I love the juxtaposition of the huge ancient building and the small, young, dynamic girls. The patterns on the Mezquita are mesmerising, I could look at them all day. Excellent shot.
Angshu (55892) 2014-06-04 0:10
Hello dear Gosia
The details are fantastic! The crispness of your shot brings out the fineries superbly. The girls have seen the photographer, but do add a good element of scale. Excellent symmetrical picture with the off-centre framing of the girls. Fine work!
macjake (57074) 2014-06-18 3:39
this is for sure the type of scene were having the people in it make it a thousand times better and more interesting.
I'm learning that from TE :)
what a beautiful backdrop for the young ladies, smart idea to exclude the sky, having just the colorful facade.
serp2000 (40330) 2014-07-18 12:22
I like it. Very clever composition, I like this daily life scene with the girls and so wonderful pattern on the background. Perfect sharpness!
SnapRJW (31427) 2014-07-26 2:25
Hello Gosia - I missed this one and it's a beauty. The detailing in the architecture and embellishment is fabulous but the addition of the girls adds extra interest and scale. I like their off-centre positioning within what is a finely composed symmetrical shot.
Have a good weekend
