Hi Viv,....just got up in time to catch this one, before it was swept away.....I like the lines and light in this ...and the old and new......Looking at all your shots, rural and urban, I am impressed at how clean and tidy everything is in your neck of the woods...and as well, in this one how nicely dressed they all are.....and is there a glass roof over this square?...can't see any drainsSmile.....very nice Viv....SmileAlan

Ok, so starbucks IS taking over the world. They are even in your region. Lovely composition here. I am always impressed by your control of HDR. Smile

Lol Thanks Alan and Rob - I never even noticed the Starbucks there - I was just intent on taking a shot. And I have often come across Starbucks in novels and the like and wondered what it tasted like - I will have to go back! Viv

Thanks Bridget. I am a sort of plain person..Lol I like my images plain. The odd occasion I go mad and like the weird effect you can get with HDR. Viv

My favourite from this serie! Great perspective an angle. And yes, unfortunately Sturbucks is everywhere, there are just 3 in the main street of Sevilla, it's almost impossible to take a pic without a Starbucks at the background.

you are such a pleasant presence on the site and such a good sport about things.. I kept forgetting to comment on this... I think you succeeded with this photo from composition to HDR. I really like how the people were captured in this...

Thank you very much Oly and John. Ah Oly you embarress me - but - you have not seen me when I have a sense of humour failure...Lol! Viv

Viv, I missed this one, I love the HDR effects from this and the bikers convention one. I have tried it myself but I just cant get anywhere near the same effect as you. Also, I am suffering from Vab withdrawal and I have missed your posting the last several days.
