Another photo from Goree Island. The little sandy streets are great for wandering around with a camera in hand... No cars and just a few people! I guess that all of the tour groups had gone for lunch by the time I got here.

Recently, I enjoy looking at wide-angle shots and even I do like to take them especially when wonderful architectures are involved in, DAvid :-)

Strong colors of the facade of the building from a very well chosen POV make this work so splendid in its appeal.
The sharpness and DOF are excellent.
Well caught mood in here.

Kind regards,

Hi David

Good shot of on the corner but where are Willy & the poor boys? (CCR) Fantastic warm cold colour contrast here with good sharpness & smartly managed wide angled perspective using the centre corner to anchor the vertical perspective. Also like the light & shadow contrast on the centre building. Tfs!

Hi David
good use of wide angle lens. I like the way it enhanced the simple street corner yet rich with geometrical elements. very sharp and clear. remarkable composition. eye catching colors.

Hello David,
The corner of the house, right in the middle, split the picture into two parts: the left, the street in the light and the house in the shade; on the right part is the opposite, in bright colours.
Kind regards

Hi David,
A very symmetrical POV! Normally I prefer to see people in street scenes but in this case I like this deserted look. What gorgeous colors!


Great composition here David ... well thought out. I love the way the corner is perferctly straight and centered, and then the effect of the wide angle on the other buildings. The colors are fantastic .. the buildings, but also the yellow sand. How interesting!!

Hi David
Another nice perspective in this wide shot
The colors are warm and well saturated
Amazing place to visit

Interesting original point of view, I like the old houses with vivid colours of walls and colourful shutters

I love the patina here David! Wonderful levels, the shadows are easily visible with lots of details! I love the extreme wide angle for this, to see in both directions! I like the light included in shot!

Hello David, a dynamic composition.
The colours and sharp quality are outstanding.
All the details either in sunshine or shade are very clear to see.
Lovely textures.And excellent DoF, can you guess that I like this picture a lot?
Tfs, regards Jean.
