I am ınterrupting again my China series, and posting a picture taken at EDFU, near the great Temple of Horus near the NILE river. We are in 1997, and that time ( Probably today too ) they were taking visitors to the temple by horse carriages after disembarking at the pier. After the visit we were asked to walk back. And that was a road full of colors and activity. This is where I found this yellow house, with a painting of Mecca, a sign that it's owner had been to the Haj. But taking a picture of the painting itself would be a mere reproduction so I decided to wait until people passed. There was a market nearby and I didn't have to wait long. I was able to catch at least three decent images in 15 minutes.

superb colors. What a wall! What yellow and blue! The artwork is fantastic and the mysterious figure fits so beautifully into this environment.

So nice! The wall is lightening...nice graphism and a marvelous blue on wall and shawl.
Have a good day.

Une image haute en couleur et bien cadrée. Je ne lis pas l'Arabe. Dommage ! (pour moi).

Really amazing compo full of colours. Well done, indeed. Regards.

Very nice pic'. I like the idea and the overall composition, so as the excellent details on the wall. But I am really disturb by the fact that the woman is that much out of focus. In this case I'd rather see tha whole pic sharp. Only my opinion ;o)

Merhaba İzzet Bey,
Duvar dokusu, rengi ve desenleriyle harika yansımış... Sol taraftaki kadının aldığı yanal ışık sayesinde oluşan gölgeler ise nefis...
Sevgiler - Coşkun

Merhaba Sayın Hocam,
Kadının başındaki örtünün rengi ile duvardaki mavi tonlar ve başın cizdiği yayın devamındaki kubbelerle uyum içerisinde olan harika bir kompozisyon. Ellerinize ve gözlerinize sağlık.
Selam ve saygılarımla...

Striking colors, Izzet, and a good placement of the woman in front of the richly textured and painted wall. Ideally the woman would be a bit sharper, but the overall ensemble and arrangement of details still makes for a beautiful photo. Greetings from Austria.

I like the combination of the woman and the wall painting, and it's a real bonus that the colour of her clothes matches the blue on the painting. Well done!
celinaconroy (717) 2006-10-02 14:43
I must admit that patience isn't my greatest virtues and so have missed opportunities. The image of the blue shawled woman against the painted and textured wall ...and in that particular position was worth the waiting. Her inclusion adds balance and a depth of extra meaning to the whole.

Bonjour, Izzet. Ce qui me plaît avant tout dans cette imatge, c'est l'harmonie de couleurs entre le voile de la dame, les inscriptions en haut ŕ droite et les coupoles. Le dessin et la dame, par ailleurs trčs bien placée dans l'image, ressortent trčs bien sur le mur jaune. Une composition simple, mais efficace. Comme d'autres l'ont déjŕ signalé, j'aurais cependant aimé un peu plus de netteté au niveau du pesonnage.

Merhaba Izzet Bey,
bu fotograf cok etkileyici olmus. Kadin o kadar cok sey ifade ediyor ki. Ilk dikkati ceken resmin fotografa dönüştüğü noktada kadın var. Ayni zamanda inancın günlük hayata yansıması da yine kadın olmuş. Her zamanki gibi kadın bütünü bozmakla hayatı tamamlamak arasında katalizör görevini hakkıyla yerine getirmiş. Tebrikler.

Çok çok güzel.
AnimeshRay (9087) 2006-10-02 23:09
What a fantastic vision! Just stunning capture. Light on the graffiti cannot be better, the color is just extraordinary. The slightly blurred person in blue adds that touch of ambiguity that succeeds really well in contrast to the pin sharp background.
Deka_ (102) 2006-10-03 2:43
Five blue domes.. It is very good moment that you captured.
vincz (19113) 2006-10-03 3:54
Very beautiful colours that you were able to catch here. There is a lot of harmony within this compositon, the four blue domes and the woman's blue cloth on the head. Very well done, a pleasure to look at.
partha (14020) 2006-10-03 5:13
Excellent background, good positioning of the woman, strong colour representation.

Beautiful painting of Mecca with bright colors and good light. Was worth it to wait for that woman passing in front of the wall, with her blue scarf, which adds the final touch of your compo.
All the best,

J'aime beaucoup cette photo. D'abord pour ce motif paint sur le mur qui doit je suppose etre une grande source de fierte pour le proprietaire de la maison, et le motif combine au cote un peu mysterieux de la femme voilee ca me transporte tout de suite dans l'univers des 1001 nuits, enfin les couleurs dominantes jaunes et bleue sont agreables et tres complementaires, une reussite !

Merhaba Izzet, an excellent composition. A very artistic photo. Ilike the cmposition and colors. Very impressive picture!

Hi Izzet. The color contrast is great and the colors of the cloths of the lady are a perfect match to the blue on the wall. Perfect crop and perfect sharpness of the wall. The woman is a bit out of focus, but the picture still great. Regards, Yvonne
Luko (13998) 2006-11-03 13:10
Good decision... and the luck factor which makes good photos too. That incredible she was in blue, her head now looks like the fifth dome going out from the mosque drawing.
Top notch blue/yellow color opposition.
Furachan (0) 2006-11-03 18:41
Tres reussi celle-ci, Izet - Luko a bien remarque comment la femme forme "un dome de plus". J'aime aussi l'aspect textural de cette image, comme quoi le tout form une espece de murale, une oeuvre entiere sur la pelerinage lointain du Haj...
Super bien vu,
marietom (34607) 2006-11-05 4:51
Comment ai-je pu manquer cette photo ? Superbe, colorée, avec des tons magnifiques... tout ce que j'aime !

Great vibrant colors. What a wall. Very sharp and a good scan. Really well sceen and capture. Nice work.
daddo (23817) 2008-09-25 23:19
Merhaba izzet Bey. One phrase that has made an impact on my photography is "I decided to wait." I too now wait a little and often remember Izzet's modus operandi. Great light and superb colours and of course the matching vibrant blue. Selamlar. Klaudio.

Excellent color balance, beautilful composition. This is a superb photograph.
Thank you for sharing it with us...
travel-mirko (250) 2011-03-01 8:52
This is very good photography. The wall painting and their colors are simply great. What makes this picture stunning is the woman looking at them - she might get more sharpness, but this really doesn't matter here.
Thanks for sharing
