Thanks John.
(Acrually, that 1/2 person on the left is annoying me now - must do something to it - just an example of my desire to get done in PP as quickly as possible, then I spot things afterwards!)

I have no problem with that person, they are too far away, out of focus and lacking in contrast to detract from the main subject. I think you're being a bit harsh on your own picture here.

Re: Bear is essential

No problem here, either, probably would not have notice if you had not pointed it out.

Re: Bear is essential

Thanks for all the feedback.

As soon as I read John's comment I shut the laptop, done, no more editing! He's the boss when it comes to expert analysis. I'm sure all here would agree with me on that.

Re: Bear is essential

I agree with John. The half figure is unobtrusive, almost always there'll be half a figure somewhere in a street background.

What John said. Actually the half figure reminded me of Harry Worth. The weird thing is, that's all I remember about him.

YORK is a fantastic place to photograph, but living here you tend to forget how lucky we are :-)

Oh dear, that sounds like an awful burden of responsibility to bear! Actually my opinions are probably worth reading, simply because of my years of experience in photography, but they are just opinions with nothing particularly expert about them. The opinions of a complete beginner are just as valid, because what they might lack in experience is often compensated for by the ability to look at something with fresh eyes and new ideas. The opinions of others are always useful to the photographer who's work is being analysed but in the end it's his or her own opinions that really matter. The fact that it is mostly just opinion, with no magic formula for success, is what makes photography so fascinating, challenging and rewarding.

You don't really believe that load of codswallop do you, John!
I think you were just being modest

I do believe it, Mark. Beginners lack the technical knowledge and experience that an old hand may possess, but often have a natural eye for good composition. My wife and daughter are prime examples and that is why I say when you are looking beyond the science to the art and aesthetics of a picture, everyone's opinion is equally valid. That doesn't mean a beginner cannot benefit from the opinion of someone more experienced, but sometimes the experienced can benefit from the opinion of a beginner. Photography is a lifelong learning experience and we often learn better together than we do alone.
