Great tyro 2018-02-15 2:36

Hello Will,

As always, a facinating and very informative note about the recent history of Venzone and a fine photograph to accompany it.

The lavender colour of the palisade and the decorations here certainly makes a strong statement, quite appropriate in view of the wares these three fellows are trying to sell, even though they appear here just to be talking amongst themselves rather than trying to promote their goods.

A fine symmetrical composition with lovely soft light, fine textures and colours and exceptional details and sharpness.

Lovely!

Kind Regards,

John.

Default To tyro: Three fellows

Hello John

These three were I think students visiting the town, and there were others wandering about too, while their teacher sat in a cafe having a drink! I was sitting in the same cafe when I took this shot. They weren't locals trying to sell stuff: they just sat here for a rest and I grabbed what I thought was a humorous shot.

Default Ah, ha, now I understand....!

Hello Will,

Thank you for your reply! I think the problem I had was with the sentence, "Three young men sit outside a shop selling lavender products....", where I was unclear whether it was the young men or the shop which was doing the selling. Foolishly, I assumed it was the young men who were performing that act: in my defence, however, am sure that, if this shop displayed a significant and obvious store front or shop window, I should have assumed it was the shop which was doing the selling!

Kind Regards,

John.

Touché. I'm guilty of committing an ambiguity as charged!
