[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Marrakech's main square, Djemma el Fna, there is a line of stalls selling freshly cooked snails. I never had any idea that there was such demand!

I rather enjoyed this photo. I too was not aware of such demand... and I missed this when I was in Morocco. A good photo for National Geographic. :)

WOW, a beautiful shot! Sharp were it has to be sharp. Good point of vieuw! It gives a good realistic picture of the Marrakechh's main square!!

Well done!

Hello Steve!
Wonderful night composition with great colours and clarity!
Excellent done!

Wonderful photo Steve...You really brought back super memories for me in this place. The escargot is probably the most thing I crave the most from my visit there. (please see my photos, I have one of the escargot) Your image is really so crisp and clear, very nice work, thank you for the memories!!


I can only repat what I say in my comment for this photo on TE. This is really good well presented detail from life in Marrakech.
But I think you should read rules on TE and TL carefully. Same photos on both sides are not allowed.

Hey I might be going to Morocco later this year. Scenes like this are really intriguing as I imagine the food to be. Great photo here, very well composed and the exposure is spot on, which is tricky for this kind of situation.

Excellent photo. Great POV. Very well captured. Main line of stalls is placed diagonally on the photo - I think it's perfect - it's eye catching. Very sharp. Good light and colours.
