Very colorful and well composed. The woman on the left of the frame looks like she doesn't know where to start. Grin

You already have some good pictures in your portfolio, Mina, and I like your "Fruits of the season 1" where you focused on one part of the fruit display, concentrating on colours, shapes and composition. The market is obviously a favourite place of yours, and the stallholders are very creative with their arrangements of their wares. It would be difficult to photograph any part of the stall without including a sticky label or price tag, but if you wanted, you could clone them out later. There is only one in your last picture, and that was an achievement.
You have obiously decided, for this image, to show more context, including some stallholders and background of the market. Personally, I find the lights, bars, etc. at the top distracting from the beautiful arrangement of fruits, and would suggest a crop to the top, down to below the hanging bananas, to eliminate those distractions. However, to maintain your aspect ratio, you'd have to take some off the right side as well (not the left because the fruit belongs to the lady on the left - or maybe I'm wrong?). Then, that lady on the right would be a bit too close to the right frame, so I think I am coming down to the idea of a more drastic crop that just includes the lady on the left with her fruit display to her right (see my modification).
I think that if you wanted to convey more of the atmosphere of the market, it would be good to see one of the ladies interacting with a customer, wrapping fruit or taking money, and another idea would be to include some of the people walking down the market on the right.

She is the stall holder, haha, I guessed that because she is sitting...

I think there is too much on this pic to take in , I would have probably focused on the fruits only. Nothing wrong though wiyj including the people.

It's a very busy image, and in that, it's hard to see a main subject standing out. The stall holder seems completely indifferent, and as so, has no real connection to the stall.

Pamela has gone for a crop, so I added one that took a slightly different one, and pushed the colours/contrast a little. With shots like these, you need to get a link with the stallholder, such as them standing in front, shouting, selling stuff etc. and in this light, it's hard to do the vibrant colours justice.
Lots of potential here.

I think that Nick's moving along the right lines here.
As has been said, the stall holder doesn't add much to the shot.
Perhaps if you'd stepped to the left before you shot it, you'd have a slightly better composition . . .
. . . and no stallholder!
Just a thought.

Thank you so much for your constructive comments and crtiqueSmile! As you said Pamela I decided for this image to show more context and I would like to show the whole picture of the market. However I should have included people interacting, customer paying to convey more the atmosphere of the market.
I took another shot without a distruction of the stallSmile that I will post tomorrow. Once again thank you so much I really learn from you feedback very much appreciated!! /Mina
