[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The old Mediterranean port of Kotor, Montenegro, is surrounded by fortifications built during the Venetian period. It is located on the Bay of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. Some have called the southern-most fjord in Europe, but it is a ria, a submerged river canyon. Together with the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovćen, Kotor and its surrounding area form an impressive and picturesque Mediterranean landscape.
In recent years, Kotor has seen a steady increase in tourists, many of them coming by cruise ship. Visitors are attracted both by the natural beauty of the Gulf of Kotor and by the old town of Kotor.
Kotor is part of the World Heritage Site dubbed the Natural and Culturo-Historical Region of Kotor.

Bonjour Francis Xavier,

Une petite ruelle vraiment pittoresque bien mise en valeur avec ce jeu de lumière et le personnage au fond de l'image. Une très belle lecture de cet photo et de très joli détails.


Great moment, Francis!
A fine shot which leaves us impacted by the effect of time on these stones polished by use.
Also wondered by the presence of a solitary woman, which makes the imagination work and build intrigue.
Good start to the week.

Hello Francis Xavier,
you have used the very bright light and shadow areas to create a very pleasing key hole effect.
With the lady well placed in the frame there is a nice depth to the shot.
Lovely photography.

Hello Francis, the presence of the lady is 'the icing on the cake' as we look through these interesting set of arches.
The light is well managed, and I like the tight crop.
