Antigua is a quaint little city with so much character. You can wander the streets for days, and still wish you had time for more.

This was on a Sunday ... they closed some streets to traffic, and this cart of plants for sale, for one thing, were pulled out onto the street. There were also artists selling their pieces, other artisans, musicians, etc.

Levels boosted a little.

This was in the shade, so yes, maybe it's a little dark .. but I liked the sharp contrasts.

Hi Trudy,
A beautiful documentation shot of this street hawker selling plants. A nice action shot taken candidly with the car at the BG in such a wonderful movement while freezing the action of the man pulling the cart. Good exposue management and quite a neat pesentation.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Like the joyful scene, like the huge wooden wheels !
Wonderful street life


Agree with everything you say Trudy , Antigua has a lot of character , a colorful affair as street scenes go in this place when everyone is out bartering something !
A very peculiar lighting situation here my friend , some darker areas where nothing much can be done , the thing is that you did not overdo the highlights , good point , you deal perfectly with that here , of course that makes for a contrasty scene but it's still a well exposed scene nevertheless , i like how motion is expressed by the man pulling the wagon , my type of shot amiga ,tfs ,
Snowing today but not much will fall , 2 or 3 over my place , as for the remainder of the month nothing in the forecast , wow , maybe the end of winter , oh hope all is well with you amiga .
