Thanks all, it's only just gone up, but two is only just below my average so it's doing well so far Smile

Martyn, the cigarette, yes I pondered over that in ps, this was a quick job in post but had already removed a wall leaner, carrier bag and 'no parking' cone, these all smarted in my opinion, but the fag butt seemed to fit the 'taking a break' concept. So the street 'sweeper left' it. Glad you noticed and commented, I may take it out later.

Cheers again.

Lovely natural candid shot, agree that vibrant color red against the grey makes this a stunning visual image.

cripes, thanks again!

Anyone want to vote for or against the fag butt? Maybe just de-colourise it? or just plane clone it?

Cloning it would clean the picture up, into more of a candid portrait; leaving it in leaves the shot more 'true to life' as you saw it - albeit you've already cloned some things out - I say try desaturating it, as the whole background is pretty grey. Leaving it in means it still carries its message/ suggestion, desaturating it may concentrate more attention onto the subject
