[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am busy lately so don't have much time for TL, but I want to keep in touch with it, so I am posting this snap taken at Donostia, calle Mayor where Basílica de Sta. María del Coro can be seen at the end.

I think the effect is quite cool, the blurry people in foreground and the facade at the end... sharp.

Hope that soon I will have more time to give feedback to other members and post more snaps. Since then, enjoy your shooting!

Quite a cool effect indeed, Galder-Jon.
Your DOF gives a sense of direction to the movement of the crowd. As they seem to be heading for the church, there also could be a symbolic dimension to that sense of direction.
If only it had been possible to get the church building entirely centered between the rows of houses, your image would have been perfect. But I doubt wether the material circumstances (axis of the street) allowed you to obtain that completely centered composition.
Interesting "snap" ;o).
TFS & kind regards,

Olá Galder,
Bom retorno com esta interessantíssima foto que nos direciona para apreciar as belezas da Basilica de Sta Maria del Coro.
Muito boa composição, bonitas cores e nitidez.


I really like this atmosphere of street, which is an excellent pov foreground hints at the sound of the crowd.
There is a very strong contrast with the beauty of this architecture, the modern and the history.
Excellent colors and sharpness, Unusual mood.
Very well done !

P.S : I understand you, I did not have much time either and when I pass on TL is with pleasure that I criticize the photos I like.

Have a great sunday of spring

I like this Galder ... Yes, the facade of the church at the end is nice and sharp and shows nice detail ... and also in the street leading to the end. The blurred people ... yes, it shows us the hustle and bustle that is going on there - makes us feel a part of the action.
Great capture.
Take care .. hope you get less busy soon :)

Hi Galder...nice shot...I like the focus on the church and the short depth of field..interesting and artistic.

Beautiful detail in the background and on the sides but the OOF figures in the FG spoil the image. Pity. Maybe some cropping can save it.
