Nothing, just a man with his traditional Moroccan djellaba, passing by the pink walls of Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakech.
What attracted me here and motivated for a shot: Light, shade and how they change colors and give volume to even most planar shapes.
I kept the wide angle distorted perspective of the walls on purpose, as for me the distortion adds to the surreality of the atmosphere.

Love the simplicity of this one, Deniz. The shapes, the sharp silhouette, the ochre hues, the touch of mystery (what's his mission?) A touch of Cartier-Bresson. My kind of photo.

Well observed Deniz, a photograph of shapes and shades punctuated with the contrasting dark figure.Well composed.

an example of how difficult it is to photograph people in morocco? i guess so...
i like the way you cropped the whole "story" here with the lines crossing in the bottom right creating some kind of the cage here...

Asymmetrical composition but very interesting... Fascinating is better.
Beautiful contrast between the background and the sihouettes.

I like that kind of picture with someone as a mere black silhouette, in contrast with a strongly lit colorful BG, here the wall
The 3 black openings of course add an artistic dimension to the compo
well spotted and realized
have a nice WE, best
