I recently posted a photo of a man in a bright red turban and said that the picture worked because of the bold colours, which are in harmony with each other. Here’s another example. This gentleman’s turban matches the orange in the painted sign and the light is even helping by giving it a tinge of red to echo the writing on the sign. The strength of presence of the man who is staring straight at the camera, combined with the simple bold colours including that vivid blue backdrop all contribute towards a strong picture. It reminds me of another one I took in Belize a few years back that had a similar blue background. You can see it again here.

Although BLUE dominates the Belize photo, there is yellow in each of the three. I also like how the Belize photo is a graduated blue from lighter at the bottom to darker at the top. Nice combination. I can see these being exhibited together.
Interesting observation Tim about the yellow! Thanks as always for your thoughtful feedback.
