[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a port stop at Tallin,I passed this local lunch destination in Tallin's Old Town District.There are many winding lanes with cobbled stones & interesting & colourful architecture.I wanted to capture the lunch scene,not that much different from my own home town,except for the buildings & cobbled stones,& thought this scene with locals seated enjoying lunch & others waiting on a table,enjoying a conversation with friends fitted the bill.I only noticed the face at the window,after prepairing this image for downloading to TL.I'm not sure of the State I thought it may be Harju.

This is the title of your photo that intrigued me ... I spent some time to look for the stranger at the window and I have found him!
Honestly this is the name of the restaurant that I first saw "HARD".
I really like this scene full of stories. The black and white is a good choice for contrasts and details of the stones.
The balance and depth of field are pleasing to the reading of the image.

A very pleasant scene and the choice of black and white is very fitting. You have captured the detail extremely well. Possibly, and it's only a passing suggestion, some of the cobbles in the foreground could have been removed.
An excellent capture.

This is hard photo in B/W...too busry...but you make it possible with strong contrast and good sharpness.The scene is good and you managed well...

Hello Ronald :)

Very interesting street scene with interesting architecture and her details.
Showed in the perfect light nicely, very showy composition, I like him.

Best wishes...Barbara.
