Didn't see the chap in the top hat at first which obviously makes the pic. I'd crop the tree limb or whatever that is image left.

Thanks for the suggestion. It has been cropped.

Initially, I was unhappy with the highlight/bright background. I wanted to have a wide space to make the man more isolated from the group. But you are right the palm tree was a bit of a distraction. I also made the sky a bit darker to balance the scene as well. It looks ok for now

Mongolian Eyes

Last year, I was fortunate enough to take part in the Mongol Rally (a 6 week drive from London to Mongolia). My team-mate took along his Canon camera and I think a portrait lens (?). This beautiful girl came up to us when we were lost and I couldn't resist taking a picture.

i do like the second version even better, minor though the edit is.

i wish there had been an opportunity to highlight the similarity between the pattern on the ceiling of the car, and the accordion's keys. as it stands, it is implicit, but not fully realized. i can't see how it would have worked out, though.

overall, i think the shot is quite nice.

Leaving aspect ratio aside for the moment, if you crop from the bottom all or part of the bottom two keys it ties together the parallel lines and makes them more the focus of the image.

It's already a tight shot, and an upshot, so the bottom of the photo does not add any context.

I know it's against your religion, but a vertical or square crop, preferably the latter.   Then the diagonal from the face on the left and the stripe and the dog make the photo.

Really? Looks like a spot color duatone to me. The B&W is sublime. That delicate umbrella. Nice.

It might look like a spot colour duotone but it 's not. I'm glad you like my b/w version though.

The OP doesn't seem to want his picture back.

Re: anatomy lesson 2

Like the charascuro lighting in this.

As a newcomer here, a month of making comments; I'm beginning to realize how hard it is to support every posted image with a reply. At least without getting too picky or repetitive.

Espionage

Same block.  Less than 5 minutes apart.

Don't forget to (always) view original size.

Re: Japanese Couple

I do love your B&W version, the lightness from the red's is much nicer.

Thanks for posting!
