    I like the candid nature of your shot...the dynamic framing of the turban gives a sense of movement through the frame or if he was still a sense of pre-occupation beyond it. A nicely rendered situational portrait!

    Deep composition with wonderful light and nice distorted reflections. The composition is structured by the lines.

    Best,

    Beautifully rendered - the angle and the drama of the sky re-kindle the sense of the Winds of War. I am perhaps not so in favour of the cut off of the jeep to the left - I think it's full inclusion would have added another dimension. Not sure if this was deliberate on your part to create a dynamic image which leads the eye away - maybe I would like to see two versions - the passive frame - where all the elements are contained and this one to look at the relative effects on the eye and the imagination.

    Love it J - the 'treatment' works well for the subject - I like the framing very much - the focus of the child...the textures...... wonderful!

    Fantastic....even in one so young such character - a fantastic expression and a wonderful relationship to you as the photographer! An image which is both traditional and contemporary at the same time.

    The little vignette within the vignette at the top left of the photograph is delightful....I like the tight crop and sense of intimacy provided by the square format Ally and the light and contrast provide a unique visual impression....it is as if the candles are squeezing the children into a smaller and smaller space but their fascination and involvement as they are drawn closer together is entirely on the bewitching beauty of the flames. Thanks for the comprehensive notes too. bw Kev

    p.s. I use vignette in the literary sense - Vignette (literature), short, impressionistic scenes that focus on one moment or give a particular insight into a character, idea, or setting. A opposed to: Vignetting in photography, any process by which there is loss in clarity towards the corners and sides of an image. Your image does the opposite! ;-)

    A very beautiful, tranquil and painterly image - I can smell the air and delight in the atmosphere - beautiful rendition and I love your composition - the dynamic elements of the image leaving left and right connect to the wider life around the image which the lens cannot see yet the power of the framing between the trees constantly catches the eye and the imagination drawing both in to the depth of the picture...lovely!

    I really like your framing here - the deeper colours further into the shop integrate him into the scene, his business, so well he becomes inseparable. His character comes through so well, lovely!

    Love it!! Maybe could do with more of ....or maybe better, not at all the tube light at the top but everything else rings with the textual reality of this place....I can touch it and really feel the presence of these guys.

    hi J - I think too the cut off might have been better on the woman if at all - it is as if she is 'outside' of and 'moved away' but it's relatively minor because I really like this image and the strength of its message a lot - the little black doll adds such an interesting element too.....

    I like this - something so natural about the image - both mundane but also filmic in its way - I like the composition - the divergent near vertical lines, the car coming in top left and all the converging lines moving in that direction.....it could be a frozen moment but for me it is the beginning of a narrative.....
