Jardin Majorelle is like an oasis of colors and weird plants in Marrakech. It is a small garden, housing a small pond and a villa of indigo color, first built for the French painter Majorelle who was struck by the light and life in this city of Orientalism. It was then purchased by the famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and renovated, also a museum and bookshop was added. Fantastic bright colors everywhere and interesting cacti as well as palmtrees, ocalyptus and lots of other fauna.

5 dakika once merdivene kosup muz kabugu mu koydun ve sonra pusuya yattin kim kayacak ben cekeyim diye mi bekledin!
Ayrica merdivenler nereye cikiyor? Ekranimin sol tarafi karanlik kaliyor cozemedim
sonuc: golgeler, maviler, kirmizi dikenli kaktusler, guzel olmus
bu arada hala develerdeyim ne kadar senkronize yurumusler! aferim onlara

A very eyecatching and surreal shot, I especially like how you have composed this so that the cactus in the foreground looks gigantic, and the woman on the stairs looks more like a scene from a painting than real life. A real combination of colours and shapes, thanks for sharing.
All the best

this is one of the places that I love the most. These colors are impossible to forget. Very beautiful composition, a bit theatrical. The quality is top notch.
Thanks and best regards

excellent idea to take in the woman even doubled by her shadow! Carefully selected perspective, brilliant colours and intelligent use of extreme wide angle lens. Welldone!

Görüyorum "kıdem tazminatını" iyi etmekle meşgulsün !!
Şaka bir yana, izliyorum son kareleri; içlerinde bu kare bambaşka !
Selam ve sevgiler
PS. Ön plandaki kaktüslere bayıldım ! Kaynana dilini bilirim ama soldakini ilk defa görüyorum : "Damat şeyi" !

Hello Deniz - I love this shot for its creative composition which together with the strong light and brilliant colours make it an inspiration. The cacti in the FG are so sharp and detailed and the woman and her strong shadow bring an element of surprise and surrealism to the work. Really top class and one of the most fascinating shots I have seen here in a long while. Warm regards Rosemary

Excellent picture full of interesting details, tones and textures. Like the way you built the composition and cropping in vertical format. Perfectly done. Awesome work.

I like this Jardin Majorelle, with the many saturated colors and this pretty green cactus. I like the woman there in this position like a part of the Jardin.

Great composition. Line, colour, shape, light, shade,texture and a nice young woman too! What more can you ask for! Good use of wide angle to create depth FG and BG interest. This shot has it all!

again - lovely game of colours and shapes.... but - "who's that girl?" there so nicely "posing" for the camera....?

superb composition and timing, you've constructed a very dynamic, intricate and colourful image, with marvellous interaction among elements, colours and shadows. The light is as intriguing as the shadows and the colours are beautiful and have a mesmerising impact. The dynamic presence of the lady offers attractive vividness, her shadow makes a fascinating contribution too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

geniş açı...evet ama ne öncekinde ne de bunda beni heyecana gark eden pek bişey bulamadım ...desem kızar mısın?

A new things in your shot exist that it bother me,it is not bad feature,it bother me with my stereotyped think.
it is a new format of move and static that it exist in cactus.
or may be present of a woman in your shot with opposite of powerful violence of cactus.
the woman`s movement and violent reality of cactus make a contrast with impression colors.
