Geçen günkü kuşyemi satıcısından sonra bugün de aynı yerden bu kez kadın bir kuşyemi satıcısı !

You have used the red wooden frame on the left as a vertical frame against the dark dress of the woman. The clear and sharp expressions are well expressed.
The eyes - they say are a mirror to a persons soul. These eyes have seen so much ... The scarf wrapped around the head is also black and white - like the eyes...
A very emotive photograph, Mesut.
Thanks for sharing.

magnificent and very moody portrait!
The way you composed and close-up the scene as well as the perfect timing,which helps you to capture her feelings and emotions on her face make your composition outstanding!
Have a nice sunday

Hello dear Mesut,
this must have been a spontaneous shot but you've managed to capture a very eloquent and interesting portrait. There's wonderful rendering of textures and the chromatic contrasts are very appealing, playing a role in the creation of an atmosphere too. The lady's eyes are captivating, her hands and posture make an effective impact too. I wonder if she's immersed in a sort of silent prayer. A superb picture, congratulations and thank you! Is it so cold in Istanbul already!
All the best, have a lovely Sunday,

This is a terrific, yet moody portrait of this lady waiting for pigeons. There is obviously something else on her mind other than the pigeons. Image composition colour and technical details all excellent.

A beautiful street portrait, this woman has a fascinating face. I love that the bird food is served on individual plates too! The lady is placed against a perfect background too. Great candid photo, thanks for sharing.
All the best

This is a very fine portrait. Judging from the lady's clothes summer is now long gone in Istanbul. The red wall makes a perfect background. Light and sharpness are perfect.

Lep pogled na gospodju koja prodaje hranu za ptice ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Lepo pokazan gospodja u hladnom danu sa rukavicama i maramom na glavi.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the lady who sells food for the birds ...
A good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Nice lady shown in the cold day with gloves and a scarf on her head.
Good evening and a beautiful night, all the best.

Image touchante de cette femme que la vie n'a pas favorisée et qui essaye de survivre avec son tout petit commerce!

An excellent, perfectly arranged in vertical frame. I like the woman pose and that the face is not concentrating on your camera. Excellent light and very good POV choice. Well done.

An excellent portrait of this woman, so typically selling grains to feed the pigeons in Istambul
Bravo, have a nice evening

un ottimo ritratto, oltretutto ambientato molto bene per il rosso dello sfondo che mette in notevole risalto il soggetto creando nello stesso tempo una gradevole cornice di colore.
Eccellente la nitidezza e nello stesso tempo da evidenziare la particolare espressione della donna.
Ciao e buona notte

Das ist ein unglaublich intensives und beeindruckendes Foto. Diese Frau hatte mit Sicherheit kein leichtes Leben und ihr jetziger "Job" in der Kälte ist auch kein Highlight. Ein Bild, das wirklich "unter die Haut geht"...
Herzliche Wochenendgrüße aus Siegen!
