Received idea from on commentary questions.

Nezih Bey, you have a great eye for form and composition. As someone whose profession requires the frequent use of the mind's eye, you approach photography for the same desire to compose and discover something beautiful in the moment. For this photo you combine harmony of line with capturing a moment in history, from the location that in the cultural mind hints to long, interesting journeys, and family, and new vistas.

The camera height and angle are nice--it frames the material well.

The subject matter, the man who could be an official in the station or a traveler himself, helps me to form questions in my mind as to his destination or his daily responsibilities.--What is going on in his mind?, I am thinking as I view your photo.

The visual motion in the photo links itself to the implied motion always present with travelers from such a station, and the stresses and joys of such travel.

And it's a pretty picture, too. Great job!
