It's highly contrasting indoor architecture when red colour and the fig is effectively used as strong focal points grabbing the attention. It's a vibrant shot well observed, lots of details and superbly exposed in excellent tones, Well seen and taken.

Bonjour Jean Claude
Il y des belles example de l'ancienne architecture qui sont exposé ici. Le contraste avec la mur rouge et modern est intéressante.
Seul il aurais faire payer plus d'attention à l'horizon, il est un tout petit peu penché à droite.
