[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was a quick shot while we were moving through the medina. Very difficult lighting conditions with very brightly lit roof canopy while the street level was dark in low light.

I had to post-process with layers in PS to bring out some of the roof canopy structures.

The street is relatively empty because this was mid morning during the month of Ramadan. Towards the noon, the medina began to fill up and it was packed by mid day. Despite crowded conditions, people were still friendly.

A nice daily life scene with well managed light and exposure, Sunil!

Good sharpness and well caught clarity with nice colors and contrasts.
I like the carpet hanging at far.
Good observation from a well thought POV.

Kind regards,

  • Great

Hi Sunil

Daily life going on as usual. A feel of cramped conditions, sparce lighting trying to make its way in...a lot of tempary canopies put up. You captured the moment well, tfs

stv ;o))

Ciao Sunil, great perspective on fantastic alley full of life, lovely composition, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Sunil
Despite the difficult conditions, I find the picture very good.
Like daily life scene..They takes everything they can find to protect themselves from the sun rays..nice PP works
Well seen and caught

Good real life shot giving us a great idea of different cultures, methods of trade etc.
Very nice post processing to bring back the details of what you saw.

Harsh light indeed, but I think it is great to see the really bright areas of the sun bursting through the canopies, in contrast to the very cool shade of the street and market.
The shot is full of action and colour with plenty going on.

I think you've done a remarkable job bringing this one to life in both the composition, the subject matter and the post processing.

Neat job,
