I took this yesterday whilst strolling around the old town of Nice, a fascinating maze of narrow streets. This colourful artwork was on display and caught my eye... The use of a polariser helps make the colour more vivid.

No PP other than add a frame and resize. A RAW image captured at 1/10 second, f6.3 and ISO 100.

Love the colors in this shot presenting street artwork, DAvid!

As usual, the picture is razor-sharp and quality of work is high.
The light is nicely managed and exposure is well kept.

I have been to Nice about 8 years ago and I love the flair in this French city.

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,

Good Morning David,
You've beautifully drawn an aspect of the street life of France. The figures are not very different from the graffiti found in the cromagnon's caves. How human brain functions and praises and produces art is pretty sustainable. A wonderful image, well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best Wishes,

Hi David

A nice diffused light, vibrant colour, excellent sharpness & well composed. I'm wondering if a crop to the top would work for a wide angled, panoramic format, without the curved yellow ledge at the top? Tfs!

Hi David
a cheerful street art scene. the colors eye catching and arouse curiosity. a very simple and unformd composition yet interesting.

Hi David,
Colorful paintings exhibited on this street vendor stall adorned with superb lighting. I like the modest structure of the wall and the colorful surroundings that compliment the paintings.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi David..nice shot...interesting composition with nice colors and tones. Good work.


Hello David,there is so much colour and detail I don`t know where to look first! Even the iron grill is useful,if only to rest my eyes on.
Nice imaginative capture.
