[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Adjacent to the Barcelona cathedral is a 14th century cloister. There are always 13 geese in its central courtyard. Each goose represents one year in the life of the martyr Santa Eulalia, a young girl tortured to death in the 4th century by the Romans for her religion.

I think this is a very good image, with so many elements in different planes to look at. The fish, the geese, the fountain and the people. The composition is very good and the reflection is excellent. I also find the light quite suiting for the image.

Hello Joana Magalhaes,
very nice photo.

I like this one. Good composition and evocative lighting. However, I would have reduced the foreground. Maybe the red patches there are disturbing. A little cropping of the foreground would emphasise the main subject. But I like the mood of the photograph.

Bonjour Joana
This is a very singular cloister; I like the POV and mood of your shot and the two red fishes on the left are as a funny and enlarged another reminder of the red jacket of the woman
