Nf,

'Here is a 28/3.5 at F/16 using hyper focal distance',  -- You can shoot like a Kodakā„¢ Instamatic as long as they are farther than 2.5 feet from the camera to infinity.  Its called street photography you can actually shoot from the hip, we did that in 1967.

That image IS NOT a portrait its a snap shot, you know the kind that you just take never intending to enter a contest, probably never print and may use as a personal wallpaper; not worrying about rule of thirds.

Ciao,

Sorry that I offended you in way, apology accepted.

Has nothing to do with composition.  You shouldn't be shooting f/16 for that kind of shot, ever, for several reasons. Read up on "diffraction".  This is not 1967, you're not shooting film, and "shooting from the hip" is just plain dumb.
