Ah, oui! Provence....le nom de la region me fait sourire, me fait rever des plaines, des fleurs, de la lavande!

@Japanalia: Even if it is not a real scene ? Because this shot has been taken in a santon museum next to Arles…

We have some of the very same traditional santon figures in our collection.

@john: Really ? You are collecting santons ? But where do you find them ? Do you come to France ?

vu@granby - Wolfgang from Granby, Quebec, Canada

Avant de lire les commentaires je me demandais si c'était des santons, maintenant c'est confirmé.... Très belle scène!

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: Je suis tombé par hasard sur un musée qui expose des centaines de santons mis en scène dans un village provençal.

An intersting scene, I presume from a model. I agree with lots of the previous comments it's a very nice photo.

Laurent from Lyon, France

Un must cette photo!
Le sujet est très intéressant mais tu as su en plus la magnifier avec une exellente profondeur de champs.
L'éclairage est également très bon.
Une vraie réussite

@Laurent: Le 50 f1.8 m'étonne à chaque fois. On arrive à des choses étonnantes avec ce caillou en plastique qui ne paie pas de mine.

Gromitch from Moscow, Russian Federation

Very nice colours! Good deepness!
