Nikon D100       4th place, 184 points
1/125s, f5.6, ?, 315mm, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Image size to 800 ... variations and levels ... fine sharpen ...       Extra Info: So many choice i had around me when i was walking in the streets in ****** *******. But my choice came to that one, as more lively. This woman just have finish to clean her balcony and was looking if the dust didnt fall on the head of the people in the street. That make me smile.

    Thx for ur comments and voting. I like u appreciate the humour in this photo.
This is a typical scene in south of Europe. Right, could be in Italy, Spain, Basque Country or all others countries around Mediterranee. Nobody care to show their panties or part of their intimity clothing lol. That s also true that balconies are also a part of the apartement, that s why they are so lively and full of details. People use to spend a lot of time on it. But its always very hard to hide all cable passing as they are everywhere covering all walls. After working, when i m having free time, i spend my time my head up as its so much colors and life. Just miss the sounds and smells in the pic. Or u could have heard also the voices of kids or parents or forks whisking eggs for Tortillas -omelette-. Beside to be bathed by sun, streets are also invitation to enter into any houses just to share the good delicious dishes u can smell from the streets.

See ya next turn and good luck ...

    Good human interest shot. Very colorful. I'm sure if the person who own's the undies were to see it they would 'die'. In my TT.

    Good capture for theme. Composition is a bit haphazard but close enough for me. The flowers are a bit strong, appearing almost florescent.

    Great humor in this shot. I wonder if she just cleaned out her bird cage. :)
The hanging underwear is pretty classy. TT just 'cause it makes me smile.

    I like this shot but I think it could have done with some better light and the color of the flowers is a bit over saturated compared to the rest of the pic. In my TT.

    Hahaha...LOL, the best take on theme for this challenge. Balconies were a bit slight in this challenge but you found one with some almost cartoon humour. Great title and I can picture Wyle Coyotee getting hit by a flower pot while chasing the Road Runner below. My #1 good luck, dp.

    Nope thedoctor i ve not increased saturation in red channel. This is taken in a square, typically one u can find in Basque Country. All of it is surrounded but such kind of appartement full of windows and balconies over charged by colorful red flowers. It was very sunny and the rays of sun were bathing the site and the light was rebounding or 'ricochet' from one window to each other creating this kind of natural red effect. As i said to aprile, and as mentioned by rafin, cable are part of the scenery, and it s a lot of cases like this. So i just accept to integrate it ... what else can i do lol

    I really like the human element here. These are balconies that people live in. The washing the glimpse of the bird cage, the plants to add life and colour to an apartment, all fit the theme perfectly. I wish the tubes and cables were not running down the middle from an aesthetic perspective, but that is part of the reality too. A clear favourite

    Great - i would say 'italian' - street-scene and inclusion of the window subject to this scene. Did you increase saturation in the red channel? The flowers are really 'poppy'.

    I totally agree with u aprile but this is also a part of the environnement. I tried 2 differents angles but couldn t find a way to hide those distractive elements. Beside i had to be fast or woman could have disapeared of the picture. i also have a serie just taking the window with flowers and panties but the integration of a human being in this composition is much more lively.

    LOL Underware good, windows with flowers great, lady looking down is also a added element to this photo. But I would have tried to crop out or eliminate the center part where the wires make the photo too busy. Maybe it would have been best to crop just the right part of the frame >>>.
However I do like this~!
