[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
City of Fianarantsoa is located 400 kilometers soouth of Madagascar's capital. The name can be translated as "where you can learn the right things"
City was founded beginning of 19th century on top of a mountain and the upper part of the town still holds old style narrow roads and ancient architecture.
Traditional architecture uses stones as foundations and red bricks for the walls.
Those red bricks also characterize highland soils in Madagascar.
Here in the sunset, they give this undepictable ambiance when combined with the stone paved ways.

Hello Fidy,
The low point of view gives the house quite a foreboding atmosphere.
As you say, the setting sun gives the brickwork a rich saturated colour.
My kind regards,

Good perception, nice framing and matching light condition.

A nice picture. Thanks for sharing !

Hi Fidy

A good upward pov with great shadow detail at left & the people provide good scale. Excellent sharpness & the warm colours of the building provide a good warm cold color contrast against the pale blue sky. Tfs!
