[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
High noon at the old market square. Temperature was 40C. Only mad dogs and tourists were out and about.

This is not the market where the local residents buy their needs. This is mainly set up for tourists and is bit of a tourist trap. But it was fun wandering through the shops and talking and bargaining with the shop keepers.

Hi Sunil,

A good daily life scene from Morocco. 40c! Wow, it was 36 here on Sunday & I got sunburnt. I can understand why they are wearing why clothing which reflects 90% of the light and heat. Dark clothing tends to absorb the heat. Good shadow detail at left & superb sharpness. Tfs!

Olá Sunil
You catch with good sharpnss the details of this turist market. A good perspective and clear details make it very interesting.
Um abraço

So this is the famous Marrakech market for tourists. Nicely captured with good pov and dof with nice details. Good lighting control and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
