ON TAKING THE IMAGE:
The picturesque town of Guatapé is known as the Pueblo de Zócalos, named for the beautifully sculpted and painted depictions of village life that adorn the lower half of most buildings in the town center. On weekends, the waterfront malecón (boardwalk) fills up with local vendors selling beautiful Paisa art, food, and souvenirs, and the adventurous can take a ride on the Cable Vuelo, a canopy zipline over the lake. Popular boat tours visit the former site of Viejo Peñol, a town which was submerged by the creation of the reservoir, which is now marked by a giant memorial cross.

intéressante prise de vue que cette composition riche en couleur.
Je pense que le cadrage est une peut trop serré à gauche

Nice series of lines and colors in this simple door portrait, Matt. I like the arrangement here of the lamppost, wire and planter, with the door sitting at the end of a diagonal line there. Too bad the mosaic at bottom was covered, but clearly there's no way around that. Thanks!

its always a great day when TE recieved a new posted photo from you :)
its a shame you're not on here full time, but we understand :)
seems like you captured a number of colorful photos in Columbia, it has certainly peeked my curiosity.
very rustic looking here, and it certainly grabs the viewers attention from the gallery page.
love the old lampost with the new energy efficient bulbs, such contrasts.
great to see you,

thanks to the vivid color scheme and so nicely applied close-up this scene is really magnificent!
Blue vs. yellow makes here outstanding contrast.
Excellently composed and framed scene.
Have a nice day

love this! A beautifully constructed composition, with amazing detail, but it the mix of elements and colours that makes it stand out so perfectly. Excellent!

striking colors in this town. nice lamppost, pity that the man with donkey is hidden behind it. But one can't have everything. very attractive composition.

You well captured a colorful street in Colombia. Not many people visit this country in South America. Thanks for sharing.

A great presentation of the details and bright colours of this Columbian town. The colour palette is rich and varied and there are a number of interesting elements to look at, without the sense of being overly cluttered. The composition is very good as well, with the painting on the wall effectively positioned so that we can still see the man and the horse, even if it is mostly covered by the lamppost.
