Thank you for your esteemed feedback, my friend!

Ithink I owe the colour and clarity to shooting RAW.Oh, Icouldhave bungled without these strong and faithful colours:-)

Actually, the ghosting side effect of the motion blurr alsoconcerned me here somehow. However, I wanted to readthe opinions first. Probably I'dnot have applied anything if the the limited 1/180'' range of the sync. flash had allowed me some shallallower DOF than f/8! But then you'dperhaps dislikeconcrete blocks and artifacts at the background even more, imo, without 'the lesser of two evils' motion blurr:?

I think #1 has to be my favorite, but they are all absolutely beautiful. I am amazed by the detail and vibrant color on all of them. Well Done!

I see... thewarrior's costume - if that's the phrase-in folklore varies greatly in Anatolia from region to region. So, I gather that'Τσολια' isthemenifestation in theadjacentGreek peninsula.

Ah,about how time flies,you're ightarkadaş! ...was it not inTimon ofAthens by Shakespeare saying '...time is a trap' ??!!

Yes it does vary my friend,, a Τσολιας costume was a modern military outfit from the 19th century, every year Greek boys in school dress up in this for Greek Independence Day.

Thanks for the elaboration to prevent confusion, my friend!

Oh, as for the 19th century, such a confusing and'turbulent' century in which the Balkan nations won their independence oneafter one, signaling to the inevitable downfall of the third and the last 'Roman Empire': the Ottoman Empire!It seemsTurkeywas the lastto win its independence : ) Actually, the Children's Day is one of our independence day(s) on which children of the world are invited to perform their folkloric games in their traditional costumes. As a matter of fact, though I'm not usually a great fan of folklore games honestly, I quite enjoy watching them as I contemplate the meanings, backgrounds beyond their garments and figures...eh, and meanwhile take a few picturesif I can :-)
