Another intrusive shot from me taken at a pub where we stopped for dinner.In the far corner I observed these friends having a drink, exchanging jokes and a laugh or two. The old wood textures on the wall, the lovely light and the warm golden glow made me attempt this difficult shot with no tripod and a very slow shutter speed.Even though the image is a little blurred, I love the effect created by the light upon the seasoned wood, the shiny metal and the different coloured tops the men are wearing.
Many pubs and cafes in N.Z. have very imaginative decor, many using recycled materials from old buildings. This pub had old doors plus frames saved from derelict buildings, not for use, but hanging by steel cables FROM THE CEILING!
This is my companion piece to my previous photo Thinking of Caravaggio as both have that special light in which both artists excelled.

Hello Klaudio, Nice view from the pub. Nice light and colours indeed and there is something of the atmosphere of the old paintings. Wello done. The pubs are not the places I visit, maybe a pity, one can observe interesting scenes.

I like the low key golden lighting here. As you say in the note, very difficult conditions to attempt a shot without a tripod but you did a really good job here - it may not be perfectly sharp but it's not that important. More important is the fact that you took it and recorded this special moment.

Kod mene popodnevni odmor posle rucka i gledanje Djokovica koji je ostvario jos jednu pobedu ...
Interesantan ntekst o kafani, lep pogled na enterijer i goste.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan deo kafane sa gostima koji uzivaju u dobrom picu.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto za druzenje uz hladno pice i razgovor.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc a dobrim snom, sve najbolje.

verujem da ti je bilo neprijatno da ustaneš i otvoreno ih fotografišeš, inače bi verovatno izbegao (pretpostavljam) deo šanka u prvom planu, koji kvari ukupan utisak. Šteta, ali razumem!

I had a tough time trying to decide which picture to comment on this evening, and obviously settled on this one. :) I just couldn't look past the atmosphere collected here, this is so very warm and inviting. Not just the soft light and setting itself, but the joy and camaraderie of a group of friends spending time together is what's best conveyed. You could have satisfied all of the desired technical details, but it's the friendship that shines through. After just spending a long weekend with my best friends, this brings a a big smile! Have a great afternoon. Take care.

This is a very different photo to what is generally seen, and the effect inside the pub is brought out so well. Even the low light, though not helpful for the photo, adds immensely to the theme.
Have a great day!
