Beautifully atmospheric composition perfectly suited to the black and white treatment. The pair of visitors are well placed in the frame as if caught in a stage spotlight. The image has a good range of tones and excellent sharpness.
Thanks for commenting on my offering. To the best of my knowledge it was taken around four in the afternoon; this area of the city is slightly off the beaten track - most tourists congregate around the cathedral where they are deposited by their tour guides.

You choose as photographer self it, but your second picture is wonderful.
I like this picture in black and white and a lovely game between light and shadows.
You create nice depth and perspective, the people is a wonderful addition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Quelle belle composition. Le noir et blanc sied parfaitement à la circonstance et surtout à l'ombre au sol qui suit une courbe parfaite. Les deux personnes sont parfaitement placées dans la lumière.

What an unusual palace. Just looking quickly at the photo I thought it was an arena for bull fighting and maybe a huge spotlight aimed at the place where the matador killed the bull. Looking closely I didn't see a bull, and no excited audience, and then I read the title and the note. I couldn't believe the architect didn't plan the dramatic effect of the light moving around the rotunda. People were smart already hundreds of years ago ;-). It's a stunning photo and I am sure the play of light and shade is at its best in B&W.

As Gert already noted, the architect was was very clever ad far-seeing to make a such a good playground for photographers especially for BW fans. :) The two people were also nice enough to stand just in the right place for your photo, which is a real fine-art. I added it to my favourites.

Hi Will,fantastic work from this palace of La Alhambra! You played in a great way with lights and shadows and the circular perspective too is a winner,absolutely a professional shot! Thanks for share and for the useful WS too. Have a nice week! Luciano
Nice to hear from you! I have been visiting TE on and off and looks like so have you so our TE paths rarely crossed in the recent months... ;-)
Perfect time of the day to photograph this oval of light and great timing to capture the two people in just the right place. Almost makes me wonder if you asked them to stand there. The whole thing looks like an enormous stage with actors in the limelight. Black and white works so well indeed to show the shapes and the contrast.

It's good to see you posting again.
This shot was taken at a perfect time, when the shadows were encroaching across the patio and creating a glorious, circular spotlight to emphasise the surrounding shapes and highlight the rows of repeating pillars. The figures are well placed as a focal point; had they been facing forward, we could easily have believed they were about to perform an operatic duet!
My warm regards,

Gorgeous photo of this circular courtyard. The columns add a great repetition in the background and the lights and shadows are amazing. The people are well included exactly in the centre of the lit part too.

Excellent POV with the curves, repetitive verticals and lovely shadow and shades from dark to light focusing towards the center of the image. The presence of the people give a good sense of scale and liveliness. Detail are abound throughout and good technical quality, a shot which is aptly converted to mono effect. Timeless capture, Congrats

as i've missed the last few photos in your gallery, I also wanted to get to this one.
one of your best shots. this is A+ all the way.
what an impact 2 small people can make in a large architecture scene. the shadows, the pillars, the circular motions on the ground and with the levels and roof, its such a pleasing visual. well done my friend.

Lovely composition in B&W of this famous circle at the Alhambra. I like the semi-circle formation of shade and light, and the 2 people are obviously "enlightened" !
Well done !

*****for the framing, the play with the light (sol y sombra in Spanish!) and the rounded shapes.
The 2 people adds some more interest to the scene
How have you made this aerial view? Have you used a drone? Beautiful picture from this amazing construction, you were lucky that there is this couple of visitors and only they with no more tourists. Beautiful play of light and shadow, well used black and white. I am sure that the artist must be aware of this lights and shadows, it is striking effect when you are there.
