A fine shot, Nezih.

As an experiment I think I'd try a tighter crop on the the bottom letf, maybe even cloning the ball further along the wall. I'm not sure it would work and the empty space is appealing as it is, but I'd give it a go.

I love the interplay of light and shadows so perhaps a mono conversion would look good but then you'd lose the yellow ball...
Best wishes,

Andrew

Thank you for the suggestion, Andrew. You're right in every thing you say. I'll crop a part of the bottom out to eliminate the curve on the left. I tried mono, but it didn't work so well. I like to keep the distance of the ball for the reason you mentioned.

Nezih

I've looked again, Nezih and even a straightforward square crop might do it.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Love this. I like the gritty, desaturated urban colours and it really needs the girl to add the focal point for the shot.

This picture is fascinating, take the little girl out and there is nothing much to look at , with her everything else gains interest. Is there a lesson for life here? I am just musing but like this picture because it provokes thought about subjects. Well spotted.
Best wishes,
