Hi, happy to see another Minolta user here.

I see you made the most of the situation and the moment, that shows good skill Smile
I may be mistaken, it seems to me that it leans a bit to the left,
but the girl is making an effort to balance it, lol.

I have to ask you about the detail of the partially missing fingertips of the girl on the right. Did you see them in the pentaprism? (my MInoltas don't offer 100% field of view) Did you check if they appear in the negative but not on your image on paper? Some of these lab/machines -which supermarkets have- don't depict the whole of the 35mm negative frame, so we better avoid taking things to the edges. A minor backward step amy had helped, but it does not affect the quality of the picture.

There was a woman clambering into the fountain and her cycle helmet covered her fingers so I cropped that out as it distracted from the shot
