MY COMMENTS:
I started this piece right after high-school. I worked on it for a month before I shipped off for in the Marine Corp. I worked of a slide that was taken in 1995 Israel. I believe the simulated light from the projector makes is the closed thing possible to being their on location. It's far better to a photograph.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Should I leave it as it is? I believe the colors are right on. It has a 3D effect. Finishing it may have some advantages buts it's a piece I stopped doing along time ago. I'm not sure if the pros outweigh the cons. What do you think?

I think the right 2/3 is strongest
no need to change anything though
finding good compositions is an art
in itself.
moving on is important too

which arab market is this?

I'd guess you're coming from a far different place now, so you might want to do it again altogether. For personal preference I'd like to see the hot country suggested by warm colours as well as contrast.

WOW! I LOVE this as is. It feels so hot--I think it's great.

It would be nice to see another version of it just because it's such an interesting composition/location. Really incredible work.

i like the placement of shapes
which abstractly, playfully make the image real

The white is really powerful, contrasting with all the dark colors.
It feels finished or just nearly there.

If I was allowed to change anything, I think I would change color of the left
