I don't really care for Martin Parr, I find a lot of his work painful to look at, with his series Bored Couples showing some of the very worst. I recently went through a book with all his series in and found only 3 I liked.

However this is a bit like his subjects so I thought I should mention him first before others did.

Part of my A Level Street photography.

Comments appreciated, thanks!

This is a cracker of a candid. However if it was mine I would crop it from the top of the bridge. I feel that it would make it an even stronger image . However that is only my opinion. You captured it and you decided to compose it in this way. It still is a great image.
