This photo was taken late in the afternoon on a rather overcast day - we decided to go for a walk before checking into our hotel as we knew the clouds were rolling in & it was going to rain... strolling around the plaza I noticed this fresco of the two working nuns - I liked the contrast of the light & dark colours.
Sure enough soon after this photo was taken it poured with rain so off we ran to our hotel for a well earned rest - I think we had travelled around 400 klm's that day.
Enjoy my photo's & thank you for looking.

J'aime bien cette photo. Les soeurs ont l'air très joyeuses et dansantes. Le cadrage vertical est bien fait et la lumière est bien gérée.

That is a beautiful fresco, and its bursting with life and colour, seems almost to be 3D. What a wonderful way to brighten up the wall. The rose that one of the women is holding is a really nice touch to the painting too. I like your POV too, with the inclusion of the steps and doorway, whcih adds great depth and perspective.
Thanks for sharing

interesting the painting with the sisters to contrast perfect with the brown backdrop of the wall.
I like the brilliant light as enhance the vivid colours of the scene making it even more effective.

Hi dear Dawn
Sorry, after looking at your photo, I can't get that song out of my head Sisters by Aretha Franklin now :) But what a good soundtrack for your lovely photo. Like you, I'm attracted to those vivid colours, perhaps made even more vivid by the strange overcast conditions. I find that heavy grey skies often do that. Anyway, you spotted this well and delivered a photo that made me smile.

Nice to see you in the overview picture, give a mopre personal appreciation.
This picture has a fine POV over, placing the wall painting off-center in space, and added a bit of the surrounding's with the stairs and stone-lintel on left.
good light managed, clarity is superb.
Have a nice start of a new week,

Hi DAWN Dear
View is very beautiful and attractive. Very nice and lovely peaceful atmosphere. There are well my friend. I love it.

It is a well-chosen framing, in a slight low-angle shot that works very well graphically, and gives a nice perspective to the nice fresco. The light has a beautiful effect on the elements, and the colors are magnificent. Nicely done. Wish you a great weekend.

very beautiful details of this fresco, the style is light and full of joy. excellent pov, framing and sharpness. well done. I guess the image shows santa rosa de Lima and san martin de porras, 2 peruvian saints..

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the fresco of two working nuns. It is finely drawn on the doorway by a bright touch. So, it's good contrast with the wall design in back. And, the stairs draws out an additional good effect in this image.
