I would have liked to omit the rope across the middle. I thought about cropping 3/4 of the right away, but noise from the enlarged cropped image centered on the woman, would probably be worse than the original & lose a lot of impact. Available light on a cloudy day.
This is a little different from the usual eye level shots in markets, & was taken from the 2nd floor, looking down.

For a cloudy day you have still managed to capture a very colourful scene. I really like the composition of the woman on the side, and she has expertly arranged the vegetables. Well done.

hi Chris. I really like market shots and i think you have done well with this one. I like the view point you have chosen - it gives a good overview of the goods on offer. I like the inclusion of the vendor as well, human touch is always nice. Shame about the rope though. Still nice capture

A nice market scene Chris.
The rop... it's ok.. I am nnot too bothered by it. I don't think it would be too difficult to cancel..

I like the viewpoint and the repeating circles of colour. Too bad she didn't look up!
The rope doesn't bother me, I don't care for the basin edges at the bottom of the shot though.

This is great daily life/Food shot, Chris!
I like those different Veggies/ their colors as well as the angle... What is the wire in the middle? Anyway a great shot.

Going to places like this at street level, you don't get to see let alone appreciate, the organization required, to keep everything in order to sell or for us to choose from.
Too bad about the rope but it is not so bad. You could try cloning it off as it is relatively "thin" enough.But don't crop anything on this photo.There are just too many connecting patterns as it is.

Good idea to shoot from there, nice composition, very colorful, well seen.

I like the POV and the colours. Yes, the rope does distract a bit. You could clone it out, but don't need to bother, unless you sell it to a magazine. The two dark corners, lower left and upper right balance each other nicely. The only thing, the woman is lost among all the vegetables. Not disturbing, but if you want a picture of the woman, you have to isolate her.

I like this kind of market scenes so much and what is special her is your POV. Very nicely done !
