A portrait of a horse-drawn carriage in front of the Notre Dame Cathdral at Rue Notre Dame in Old Montreal.
The calèches leave from place Jacques Cartier, de la Commune street, place d’Armes and sometimes even from the top of Mount Royal. A tour in the streets of the historic quarter lasts from 30 to 60 minutes and is available in English or French. Rates: 30 minutes, $48; 1 hour, $80. It is possible to leave the streets of Old Montreal under certain conditions.
A very good activity for exploring Montreal

The low point of view and the tight framing give importance to the horse, the motor of the carriage. A good light enhances the colors of the scene. Mid-October, the business is slow and this guide has time to read in his flowered carriage.

nice the close up view as the presentation of the horse-drawn carriage with the driver to be so committed to his book.Excellent the light and the colour management of the scene.

This looks nice, and a horse-carriage may be a nice way of exploring Montreal, but I could walk through the city for an hour for free, instead of paying $80 ;-). I agree that the horse looks nicer than me, or any average human pedestrian. The horse and its carriage and the buildings behind look rather much like in a European city. I guess this is a very French district,
Actually, nearly all of your photos seem to have been taken in Saint-Hubert, which I think is not quite the case. Maybe that is where you live, but when you upload a photo yoy should indicate in which country, region/province and city where it was taken, not your home town. ;-)

You're capturing well this scene by a good low angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a horse-drawn carriage for sightseeing. It looks as a nice and comfortable vehicle for exploring this city. And, it's also tasteful for old buildings in back.

I like this photo very much. You have taken the horse and the carriage from excellent low angle viewpoint with nice old building façade in background. I also like the snapshot, meaning that the horse man is not posing for your camera. Excellent photo with professional arrangement. The tight crop is perfect choice. Well done.

You have captured well the relax expression of the driver. The point of view is showing the details, the colours of the horse and of the carriage(caleche). The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.
