Taken this picture from a well chosen POV, the stsue placed well against the beautiful facade.
Combination of mulrti-colors in fine harmony and contrast, bright light upon.
Maybe a wider scope would show more of the interesting building.
Have a nice Friday,

Bonjour, cher ami Pedro,
Outre la belle mise en image de cette composition, je découvre cette statue représentant un joueur de pelote basque (j'ai donc appris quelque chose grâce à votre photo).
Merci pour ces informations.

A nice and colourful photo with many attractive details. The colours and light are excellent and the low angle is well chosen.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Cette statue nous invite presque à danser sous cette belle lumière. La contre plongée utilise bien ce ciel comme arrière plan.

Hola Pedro ,
Attractive low POV and perspective on this white pelotari and this white building . Superb contrast with the blue elements and the blue of the sky .

A good upward pov on the statue adorning the center of the fountain, with excellent sharpness and vibrant color with punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

what would make this scene better is if it was a waterfall or water fountain, spraying water down into the blue portion...maybe it is but its not working today? in any case, its not your fault haha
I like the angle you chose, and how the man is mostly up in the blue sky so we can see him more clearly. love the globe and how its put together with the mini tiles like that. even the base is excellent. neat shot
