Coconut Seller at Salalah, Oman
Here at Salalah we could have fresh coconut water yummy ... having it after may be one year or so ...
The setting is like in India, Kerala...yes the man is the owner of the modest coconut and banana shop..
Salalah = Kerala "Gods Own Paradise"

Well captured and seems very natural.
Astonishing similarity to Kerela...I must say :)

Very nice shot with good composition, using warm natural light to give good contrast, sharpness and fine details. Good pov of fruit stall and the seller. Great work and such fast improvement since your 1st post of a horse.

I like the quiet dignity that you captured in this shop owner. The low light adds a lot of depth to the composition.
I do want to apologize for my slow response, my Mom has been quite ill.

Before i read your note i said to myself, this looks very much like India... even the seeler is maybe from the subcontinent! Excellent light, fine natural colors and good sharp details.

such a wonderful foto information here, Paddy. I always thought Oman as being a desert rich country devoid of the lush green vegetation. you presented us with something of a surprise to myself in particular, an image just like in the tropics. thank you!

I like the way the light works with the colors in this photo. It really helps make the green pop. Nice, natural shot that doesn't seem forced.
