I like the addition of the balloon in the scene. The colour contrasts nicely with the muted colours in the scene and because it seems so out of place in its surroundings it really grabs the viewer's attention.

Regards

@ MarceloLI : Thank you for your kind interest...

@ bluenose : I appreciate your good observation and insightful words. Sometimes selective color against a monochromatic background could be used in a composition in such a way as to create a center of interest about the subject.

Good to see you back after two and a half years, but who's counting?? Powerful photograph and the use of selective color does draw the eye to the subject. Glad to see you posting again, Bahadir.

Warrior,

Some words/sentenses forming themselves when viewing this picture:

Agora as entertainment center

Invitation to a pas de deux

Peripatetic's galore

Piranesi (Alberti)

Rather the opposite to the artists mentioned above: all the openings on the right side. Freedom

6000 years ago - the ground was laid

You're a lucky man, Bahadir
