[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Despair's the path of life I walk,
The shadows in which dwell
A goal I seek with all my heart -
Escape from any hell.

Fear and terror bar my way,
And darkness blinds my sight,
But all these things will flee before
The shadow of a light.

The journey's rife with sorrow... pain...
At times it's hard to cope...
But I'll endure... search deeper still...
Where burns the flame of hope.

The note tells us nothing about the image or the pp work involved and the signature is both pointless and distracting - but aside from that there is a lovely atmosphere here, nice tones, nice amount of noise and just has a lovely overall feel...i like this a lot. Maybe just one bright dot in the bottom left to clone out?

Hello HArout

This a great image with your writing. Very scary times we are in. I liek the mood for sure.


selam my brother
Aleppo bazaar, the perfect shot in less light
could have been a little clearer
have a nice weekend

Ciao Harout

Lovely contrast picture,
I see these picture more as a artwork.
Excellent captured and good composed.
You play excellent with light and reflections.
Very well done,

Have a nice weekend,


The atmosphere expressed by your photo is truly remarkable.The use of B/W very intelligent and useful to understand the meaning of your photo and your note.Good the play of light and shadows.

well I agree with kilted about the sign, which is really distracting and "rough". About the shot you caught a nice atmosphere and the grain fits with it.

Hi Harout!
Beautiful, suggestive scene. There is great misterious atmosphere! Nice light and reflections.
Is it the Bazar?
Ciao! vanda

Bonjour Harout,
J'aime bien l'ambiance que vous avez réussi à faire ressortir de votre composition. L'utilisation du sépia est fort judicieux.
Merci et bonne journée.
