This is taken inside Masjid Jamee (Grand mosque) in my hometown Esfahan. The two men were chatting after they had their noon prayer. the pattern of the wall in the background is an example of islamic architecture. only the little girl noticed me.

I like this shot a lot, Koroush. The background is fantastic and I love that the little girl is facing you. I also love that the girl is dressed in red, which is the only color in the whole shot. I just wish the shot had a bit more "punch" -- maybe a little more brightness and a bit more sharpness.
BTW, I posted a shot called After Prayers (from Sarajevo) last week. Did you see it?

Wonderful composition. So graphical, this repetitive pattern and the position of the the men and the child is so impressive.

Very well composed. The special wall is well shown and the little group is fine to give it some life. Just one thing is a bit odd - the men are turned away from the girl as if they donīt want to see her.

Nice composition. And the light is perfect to the scene.

Very original picture with a good play with the shadows and a good use of these patterns on the wall. Folks seem to stare at this scene. Only the young girl is attracted by the photograph. Well done !

Now that's a special photograph; the regularity of the patterned wall is broken nicely by the shadowy triangle and that highlight. And of course the girl in the red nicely breaks the regularity of the greys, browns and blacks. Well done

A very nice repetition of patterns here (the background, the walls underneath, the stripes and blocks on the shirts, the dotted robe of the girl). It is indeed striking that only the girl wears colours, probably because of social rules whereby children are allowed more because of their innocense.
You have a nice portfolio !

Excellent shot. I like the the graphical form of the wall pattern. Also I like how the shot is almost monotone, except for the little girl in her red dress.

What a simple and magnificent shot! I really love the pattern on the wall and the intimacy created as the men are looking in the other direction while the girl is looking at you. I really adore the space you have left and the angle you have chosen on the whole. My only little point is that the white spot really pulls my eye in over and over again... I wish it wasn't there... but then again, it is simply perfect with it as well! :D

Loved the brilliant composition. Everything here is in black and white except the little girl in red, who is shining like a guiding light of hope.
Very inspiring. Thank for sharing this.

Very interesting and nicely balanced daily life composition. I love the juxtaposition of the two men looking in one direction and the child looking this way. I also like that almost all the shot lacks color except for the bright eye-catching red shirt or dress of the child. Well seen
