Perfect framing for a great theatral composition !
Kind regards

Bonjour José
Great scene and light; perfect contrejour and managing the light in the background extremely detailed though in the shadow.People have also have also a great presence [except the two photographers you could not avoid; so that a question must be asked...:Do photographers are those from whom a picture can be wasted?... ;-) ]
Beautiful slight sepia too and something maybe of De Chirico's spirit
Best regards

Hi Jose,
Great play with light & shadow with a lot of shapes and lines, well managed exposure. the placement of the people really works well.
i love the mood in this picture.

Best regards,

  • Great

quel captage et belle place, superbe avec ce jeu d'ombres et lumières, ce rendu sur le facade, un très bel éclairage sur le pavage, splendide.

Bravo et maitié

Hi Jose,
Modern image in an old decor!
I like much the "facture " of your composition. THis looks like a sequence of movie..
Excellent conversion in sepia tones and use of the backlighting keeping all details and atmosphere.
Warm regards

Great observation, Jose. As if these people were performing an act. The theatre of life... The straight lines of the architectural setting, as well as your PP-work on contrasts and tones, enhance that effect.
I woud just have cloned out the (light?) spots in the lower right part of the sky.
TFS & kind regards,

Hi Jose...this is interesting..your four people almost look like figures placed in a scene to just pose. I like the effect along with the great details and tones.
