Hi Jose,
A nice POV to capture this colorful corner in such difficut light conditions! But you managed to control such situation in this pleasant presentation!
Beautiful dark colors and a nice bent to the left are composing this marvelous perspective.
Well done,

Hello Jose,
Your photo taken in full light but view is dull a little. Your composition like for me very much.

Hi Jose..nce shot....very artistic composition..excellent tones and focus.


That is the type of scene i like Jose , it is all in the manner you have framed the striking blue house with the green and browm houses in using the old cobblestone pavement as a lead-in to where stands that formidable blue seemingly abandoned house , if i am right i see the sky through the upper windows ,i am particularly fond of ancient districts of ancient towns , so much to catch the eye in those , thanks for sharing this one Jose ,
My respects, C.

Hello Jose,nice treatment helps to emphasize the nice curves and contours.
Best wishes

Bonjour José

best regards

Hi Jose, Classic view of curving corner marked by the shadow in the lane. Exhilarating colours. Potential for cropping a little from the right side wall around the first window for the golden third effect but fine as it is. TFS. Murray

Hi Jose,

The street is sending my eyes toward the house in the background which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the houses. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Jose! Good work, excelent colors and tones. Best regards Csabi

It looks like a very lonely street and nicely captured. I like the play of light and shadows. Good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Jose,
Very nice shot: good composition and perspective and, above all, I like the use of complementary colours with a nuance of grey that create a strange atmosphere. Bravo!

Hi Jose,

Love this, the diminishing linear perspective & dual curves of the old street add real character & charm. Good color, sharpness & framing. Excellent shadow detail at left. Tfs!

Olá Jose,
Your aesthetics are always vivid in your photography and in this snapshot the sense of art if obvious. Fantastic colors, an interesting luminosity and selection of the PoV to capture the curvature of the street has incurred immense charm. A wonderful image, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,
