[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the city of Antigua - looking out to the rough cobblestone street from a courtyard.
There are many many courtyards there, either it'll be the 'lobby' of a hotel, or sometimes the perimeter is a series of shops, restaurants and offices, sometimes it's just one business that has the entire space. It's always a surprise to see what will be inside the next one as you peer in from the street. As a rule, the courtyards are very beautiful with grass and lots of flowering plants, and also very often a fountain.

You composed it very well, Trudy. I also like the exposure of the shot. The placement of the human elements make it dynamic. Thanks for sharing!


Hi Trudy,
Very good light control, capturing fine details in highlight and shadows. Very good idea of composition for an interesting presentation for the theme.
Have a nice weekend,

Hi Trudy,
Excellent choice for the theme!I like much the passage from the darkness to the light in the street! Not easy to do it so finely! The three motor bikes well aligned in front of the doors add a very interesting element at this image!
Bravo! Annie

I am impressed with the interplay of lighting and shadows, the colors of Guatemala show. I like your composition here Trudy - you've got an 'eye' for composition. Greetings! Danilo

Good chapture nice gate frame

Nice, I do like the effect here of the framing. The metering is very good, easy to have blown out elements in such strong light but overall everything is nicely managed.

Good study of subject; the bikes, the people.


Hi Trudy,
this is a very well taken photograph. The exposure - for the dark areas inside and the bright sunlit area outside simultaneously has been very well managed.
Good effort.

Best regards, Daniel.

interesting contrast and colours

Hello Trudy,
Well composed frame to open daily life.
Eyecatching colors.

Interesting and original shot:) I like the dark framing around the light of the doorway and the bikes parked in a line. Good composition and exposure control. Well done.

Very nice natural framing and I like the lineup of bikes. The lighting is very nice and I LOVE cobblestone!! TFS and have a great day!

This is very nice Trudy as I ride motorcycles and so I love this! Now these are older bikes, like mine! A smaller cc, but I love older bikes! I have a 1981 Honda CB750 Custom! I just love! The heavy black frame works well here!
