Shots like these are all about impact, Walid.
You're trying to capture action, the pace and buzz of the atmosphere, the vibrant colours, the whole idea of being there.

What I see here is an over-exposed foreground, a complete mess and clutter of rubbish in the centre left of the shot, and a completely blown out sky and background. This makes me glad I'm not there.

What I also see though, are beautifully contrasting reds, greens and vibrant fiery oranges of the tomatoes, water melons and vegetables in the right of the shot.

Had you made an effort, changed your position and viewpoint, you could have removed all of those horrible things I've mentioned and captured all of the lovely things I've pointed out, and that would have made me want to be there.

Think composition, think what you'd like to see in a photograph, think about harsh differences in light, think colour, impact, excitement.
Thinking like this will help you in every shot you take :-)

Keep on shooting Walid, you're on learning curve.



Hi Walid,
I agree there is a lot in the image that is clustered and distracted from what should have been colorful focal points. The washed out BG creates no bokeh or preferred depth.
Your question - it is due to the excessive crime rate.
