[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A scene from the market square in Marrakech. It was mid day, the temperature was above 40C in the shade and we were out strolling in the market when I spotted this boy on his bike getting some oranges.

The background is extremely over exposed as you can see, but I still like the overall effect, the OE'ed background bringing out the colours of the orange seller's cart really nicely.

I guess some purists will not like this image, to them it is technically not perfect, but sometimes you have to throw technical perfection out of the window and go with what you like.

Ciao Sunil

Some judicious burning and dodging would improve this shot immensely. Good sharpness & a superb daily life scene with excellent colour & sharpness. Good shadow detail which could be enhanced still further. The people add scale & context. Nice repetition of the oranges. Tfs!
