A man directed me to this spice store when he saw my camera, he told me that I could have a chance to take a portrait of Berberian woman who's working on Argan oil production.. when I get there there was no Berberian woman in the store but the young salesman was so respectful that I couldn't leave the store for a long time.. Of course he sold some interesting spices that I had no knowledge about before .. And he offered me a kind of herbal tea which is sweet without sugar was very delicious too..

Hi Selnur,another fantastic composition,this time from Marrakech,a city that i visited 3 times. Great idea this watch to the street of medina from a spice store,a very difficult light but not for you as i can see,great timing too to take the man outside. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Selnur, interesting picture, great composition. You have been lured into that shop but it was worth it for the picture :-)

Hello Selnur.
This is a good composition showing the interesting interior of the store with its old style brown shelves and large jars. The most eye-catching part is of course the view through the door of the man with his horse cart in front of the faded pink wall. It is a very well exposed photo with a clear view of darker and brighter areas alike.

Olá, Selnur!

Foto muito boa! A luz mais baixa deu a esse lugar um aspecto muito interessante. Os potes possuem um bom brilho, advindo da luz de fora. O enquadramento é bom. A parte exterior está mais iluminada e faz um contraste legal com o interior.

Hello Selnur,

Very nice picture . Excellent compositiom, lights and colors. The horse and man passing is just superb as you also managed the light in this interior.

My warm regards

Hi Selnur

In fact, you paid for this picture, but it was worth. I like the perspective with the brown hues in the shade ending on the opening on the street. The cart adds a lide to this image
Best regards

Hello Selnur

The contrast between the diffused indoor light and the harsh direct outside light is very striking. I might have snapped this a little earlier to get the donkeys head and the man in frame. Doesnt matter so much about the back of the cart imho. Tfs!
