    Hi Gert
    Great documentary work, as always. The writing on the wall, the stalls made of wooden crates and the washing, all those elements speak of relative poverty. The photo in the workshop showing the woman with a box on her head looks as if it were taken in Africa.
    Two thoughts and comparisons immediately come to mind:
    1. I visited Porto 24 years later. How much Portugal had changed since it joined the much hated European Union.
    2. I can't remember scenes like this from Poland in the 80s (but I do from Romania and the USSR).
    Have a nice Sunday

    Hi Benny
    Looks like a nice quiet place.
    The burst of light on a cloudy day combined with well managed contrast create a 3D effect.

    Hi Chris
    Perfect moment to create this masterful play of light and shadow and make the most of the warm tones.
    It was grey and overcast during my visit in winter 2013.

    Hi Chris
    Good crop, to bring the emphasis firmly onto the tower - such a fine architectural feature! For me, the people and some bright colours actually give some depth and scale to the shot. Good composure to this work, Congrats

    Hi Giacomo
    Gloomy and low key to suit the theme - a shot that sweeps the eye throughout depicting the unpromising weather. The outline of the buildings is vital fitting the overall image you envisioned. Well done.

    Hi Federico
    This beech tree forest invites the eye to look deeper for its natural and reality, stark and bare in winter. A neat capture and its branches system while achieving reasonable amount of colour and contrast against blue sky. You have certainly achieved your objective and captured beautifully. Congrats
