what a beautiful scene! lovely light and interesting buildings.

You ask for crit so here goes Smile
Quite important to get the verticals straight in this kind of shot, but a little rotation can sort that out.
About the composition, perhaps you didn't want too much of the rubbish bin in, but nevertheless, shooting a little more to the left would have made the empty bench a much better lead in, I know you would have lost that lovely window, still, the man is the subject and the eye would have been better led.
The highlights are a little blown perhaps they can be brought back in shadow/highlights, worth a try.

Still it's a pleasing candid shot and tells a good story; two old guys relaxing in a bit of shade on a hot afternoon, nice!

Very beautiful and atmospheric. The two old man are great subjects against the beautiful stone wall.
Patricia might be right I would have taken out the bin.

Great street shot, very nice composition detail, texture, light and shade etc but I agree with Patricia above. I would have shot more to the left, and edited OUT the rubbish bin with cloning or cut and paste from other parts of the picture to have similar colours and elements. Leman

Have enjoyed reading the above comments, and learning a thing or two. Bins always seem to be in the wrong place so sometimes I think you've got to bite the bullet and put the whole thing in. It then become a very candid shot. I love these kind of shots showing how life drifts by for some guys. Think the light/shade and texture of the building is excellent.

I have enjoyed a look at this city in a way which I'll never see in person. This is an interesting street shot, and the critique by Patricia has some good advice. I'm sorry this series is ending. Have you started your photo course yet?
