Thanks,

I like this picture, Ihtisham, very much. It feels like a breakthrough picture to me in that its entire feel is so much more experienced and less sentimental. You must have read my mind because I have been thinking lately that you live, in population at least, in one of the world's great cities, and we always get a narrow candy-colored perspective on it.

I think the colors are quite effective in creating the mood of the picture - the dress and the iron fence and the pattern on the left wall work very well together. The poster could have the colors drawn down just a bit (except for the faces) so as to fit better with the palette of the ensemble.

We all have tons of shots of people looking anxious because they notice the camera. But this one is special. You have caught an emotional moment.
