I think it's a good idea to try for something different like this, Muhamad. In fact, I like it more that the other pictures of the demonstration that are in your portfolio. The colour red always brings an image alive and captures the attention.
I think you could crop a little off the left side so that the man's back is a little nearer to the frame edge, so that we then follow his arm and look towards the red flags.
It's a shame that the man's face is against a tree in the background, especially against the edge of that tree, because his features are getting lost and integrated with it. Also, his dark hair is getting lost against the same tree.
His shirt is a little bright due to the strong sun, but I'm not sure if you are able to use exposure compensation.
Part of me wants to see a bit more of the demonstration on the right, the subject of the cameraman's shooting, but you would have needed to step back a bit to get more of it in the frame, and this might not have been possible because of the crowds.

(I would be interested to know the purpose of the demonstration, Muhamad. I've tried translating one of the signs from a picture of yours, but the translation didn't make much sense, something about the DPR being stupid, a dog, and being selected???? Is this anything to do with the House of Representatives, which has been constantly under public outcry due to high level of fraud and corruption?)

Hi Pam, thankyou for your suggestion. I'm not sure too about the exposure compensation. But in camera setting, i can raise it up or down. I tried on other image, when i took picture on day light by raise up the exposure, but i feel the colour became strange to me. I tried to raise down the brightness using photoscape but all side of image become more dark.

The purpose of demonstration is to push the house of representatives to disagree with province separated. Since in other distict the house of representatives agree with province separated but the people of district not agree.

Oh you did translated the words. WinkIf i am you, i better to did not know or see the words. but you did it Pam... Smile
