Real nice set, 5th and last stand out for me.
I'm only 4fut3, but I look a lot bigger from a distance

Nikon D600, 18-55, 50 F1.8, Sigma 70-200 HSM,180macro.
MZ-7, K-10,K-7, all gripped.
Pentax 35 28-80
Sigma 50 EX Macro.
A sexy little Q with 8.5mm Prime.
And a cup with a gorrila on it, it's also chipped a little, but holds tea perfectly well.

Looks like a brilliant place for photography. An alluring set.
Best wishes,

#5 seems to be the winner. In fact, as I usually tend to take a couple of frames, just in case, it was a toss-up between these two versions :







I liked the first one better

You selected the right version IMHO! I agree with the rest, a standout shot among some nice images. Makes me want to jet off for some winter sun, colour and culture...

Really good 'environmental portraits' - nice to see life carrying on around you without you intruding in any obvious way.

No 2 is very strong with its inside / outside views - this would have been a classic shot to apply some manual flash, lowering the exposure for the outdoors but lighting the inside with some fill flash, but this would have taken valuable time I'm sure and you may have missed your man there

And I could set up a tripod and pay the cart man to be just where the composition requires

All except #4 and #5 are sneaky 'from the hip' shots, the DA21 is unbeatable for these. Who needs a viewfinder ...

Lovely set.
I thought the Nuts Man was outstanding - so much wonderful detail.
The last two gave a wonderful sense of actually being there.

The first few I was thinking aw why didn't you focus more specifically on the key people and crop in a little closer then you near enough nailed it on number 5 which I think could do with a very little cropping around the edges.

Number 1 I think would have been a great shop of the guy stood in the door way with the door way itself framing the image.

The guy pushing the barrow could have easily been cropped to square frame and the other surplus people ignored all together.

The shot of the two guys chatting I so want to see the expression of the guy facing away from us, can't help but think we are missing out something special here.

Good set, with a few tweaks could be a super set and definitely make me want to go to Morocco

Thanks for the constructive comments. These are just a few of the better ones from the first day - I've got many more RAWs to go through and might even get round to re-tweaking the good ones
