[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Marrakech has three predominant colours. Blue, green and ochre. Blue is the sky that is pretty much cloudless most of the time, the green is the Date Palms that dot the city, hundreds of thousands of them, and ochre is the colour of the buildings of this city. By law, the buildings has to be of this colour.

Hi Sunil

Good sharpness & excellent shadow detail. The palm trees add graphism & I like the warm vs cold color contrast between the yellow facade of the building at right & the blue sky. Tfs!

A well seen shot with amazing contrasts, Sunil!

The colors are really eye-catching and clarity is amazing.
Good use of natural and well control on exposure.
The palm tree is well placed within the frame and balances the picture.

Good job!

Kind regards,

Ciao Sunil, lovely composition with beautiful palms, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi, Sunil.Nice POV to make your point about the three colors. Actually blue does complement ochre which is really a earth color. The photo is sharp and the Date Palm tree looks nice with the hanging date fronds. Elegant framing. The top of the building has a nice blue wooden square lattice design. Cheers.
