[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This couple was sitting in the street of a small town trying to sell some vegetables. What intrigued me about them was the fact that they were not, like the other sellers in that street market, particularly interested in their business. They were just sitting and staring ... day by day ...

Hi Marek,
great portrait with nice tone.
love the details.
nicely captured and exposed.


The soft tone is magical. You've composed it well too. WELL DONE!
Sorry my pointer is off now Marek.....

Your description of this shot says it well there seems to be a certain amount of hopelessness in their expressions just sitting and gazing off at nothing. The muted colours you have used in the shot add to this feeling and the shaded lighting brings out the texture in the faces and wall behind without harsh shadows. The crop to me seems a little tight there's no room around them (although you may have wanted that boxed in feel) or perhaps just including their hands in the frame would also work.


Great portrait, you have captured their character well, love the forlorne look

Bonjour Marek
Great and natural portrait as I like them

Bonjour Marek,
J'aime beaucoup ce double portrait avec ces nuances, les visages dégagent vraiment quelquechose de dur et sensible.
Et puis, la texture de ce mur apporte une dimension rude.
Bonne journée

Hi Marek...
Beautiful portraits...
Great expression...

Hi Marek! Well seen, the color tones are more than suited with the message and the expression of the couple!
