Re: different version

Interesting photo: - great framing, nice tones/patterns on the wall, great capture of the guy reading next to that thing.

By the way, I agree with frank's suggestion to see it in BW.

While I understand your ideas after you explained them, they didn't work as expected in my eyes . You have a few equally interesting objects in the photo, however they interact with each other while telling unrelated stories. The bright blue cap also works as another eye catcher and destroys the mood.

BW could possible improve the photo by putting accent on the guy reading the book next to the statue. The wall patterns may create a pleasant non-intrusive background and the bright blue spot will be gone.

Please feel free to disagree. It's your creation after all
