It's Friday around midday in Cairo and people come together in mosques and on the street to pray to Allah. There are loudspeakers here to broadcast the sermon - and I was told that this street by the fruit market would be one of the public places people would come to for this. I found a balcony in a building to stand on to look down and watch the event.

Excellent moment capture, and the POV from the top is absolutely great, giving you the view without disrupting the daily prayer routine. Technically excellent, and very nice composition. thanks

Hello David. An interesting picture of full contrasts. At first sight the praying men and the vegetable market are a contradiction. But if one regards the picture longer, everything fits in the best way. The view from above results in a fantastic perspective. Regards, Wolfgang.

Good perspective again, soft colours, good composition too.
Very well done, TFS.

Excellent shot of daily life, you really found the vintage point to take this shot from above and the colors are simply great and vibrant. Sharpness is great. Well done I like your picture a lot

Very interesting shot! very well framed. It seems you have very carefully retouched, halo is seen around each prayer, and with supreme fine sharpness and definition.
Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes, Hisashi

Very interesting photo ! I particularly like the POV.
I think sharpness may be improved but it's a photo very colored and pleasant.
Thank you to share it.

Wow! it's an amazing scene with less seen POV which makes it an attractive shot. I love colors, light and details of this shot.
