Bom dia Francis,
Shot well within the purposes of TL - know the world through photography.
Besides a beautiful and very well made picture, full of exotic and beautiful colors.
Good week,

Francis Xavier,

Un plaisir de lire cette image.
La flore contribue à la belle mise en page.
Composition et présentation ordonnées.
Merci pour le partage
Cordialement Yolande

Hi Francis
Personally, I find it so difficult finding a shot without people, signs, cars etc. But the main sign in this shot is part of the scene and belongs here.
The choice of aperture, shutter speed and focal length are all good resulting in a well focussed and exposed image. The bright colours contrast well with the drab colours of the building amterials

You have a good eye for composing a photographic image Francis Xavier,you captured well all the various patterns & hues of the different stones.The vibrant yellow of the door & window,blend well with the two colourful arrangements of flowers, & the sign above the door lets us know what type of shop were viewing,a pity it was closed for you,I'm sure if the colourful, well kept exterior, is anything to go by,the inside would have been warm & welcoming.



Hi Francis
lovely and colorful place to stop for a coffee or tea. inviting in. fine contrast of colors and textures. well composed and framed.

Beautiful corner, beautiful stone walls and colorful decoration, well composed and presented

Very nice capture of this colorful scene but that door is too bright one won't need coffee to wake up. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

I can understand why a tourist would find this quaint scene appealing. The combination of stonework, colorful flowers and yellow doors/windows is beautiful. This is nicely composed so that we can take it all in.
