Sunny day in Manchester, we decided to go to the restaurant (Café rouge, near the Printworks).
While having our lunch, I tried to take this picture, seated on my chair and hand held camera close to the ground.
Did you try to take a picture in this situation?

This is super and the legs, great capture, you being a bit of a daredevil here, but boy, it's worth it.
Love it, well done.

uno scatto originale, il pov è particolarmente singolare e ci offre una vista diversa e curiosa.
Indubbiamente la ragazza è il fulcro dell'immagine, per la posa e per il colore dem suo vestito che si abbina ai colori del cafè.

I love this kind of photography! Excellent result achieved with diagonal layout and perfectly executed details. The lady in red looks so beautiful and makes the scene really eye-catching! TFS!
Have a nice weekend!

You have achieved two excellent results, here!
First, to obtain such a wonderful sharp and well composed shot, by the method you described and, secondly, to get a day in Manchester where people are dining alfresco!
It is a great result!
Have a great w/e,

love the angle, clodo ~ an effective way to focus attention on the young woman, framed as she is by bits and pieces of much older people.
i think it would also work in b&w, but the repetition of eye-catching red, even including the red binding on the chairs, really makes this shot come alive.
her shoes, glass of wine, and hand gesture are nice details :)
thanks for sharing ~

this is a very original point of view that plays with perspective in a most attractive way. Apart from the attractive lady at the centre of the frame, the whole scene looks so interesting and vivid, all the details come alive and demand our attention. I love the delightful, consistent colours and the intricate play of diagonals that make the composition dynamic and coherent. The light and the shadows are delicious too, the outdoor atmosphere is very agreeable. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Salut cher Clodo
Well not in this exact position, and not of such a beautiful lady, but yes, I have tried. I find shooting from the hip a lot of fun. You did good here. There is a slight loss of sharpness that this type of photography nearly always has, but I really like its effect, giving us almost an impression of covert surveillance, or a dog's eye view, taken from the view of a dog who's lying on the ground next to his master.

A warm day in the UK! Taken from a clever angle with the emphasis on reds. Very well taken - love it.
Kind Regards, Ann

oh, a creative POV this is. it is maybe not that bad to be a cat walking down those cafe tables. they must be so used to these nice pairs of legs :)

I think I'm gesesen to this place where now the lady sitting in red. One sees directly to a theater, is it true?
You have made a good picture of what has made in me memories!
