A well-taken candid opportunity, Ann. What about cropping out the left hand door completely? A better balance, your attention isn't split by the TWO doors and the lady's line of sight pushes you into the frame.

Dave's comments are always so pertinent: I would probably not thought of that but it does seem a good idea, tightening up the composition as he says.

The Battle Camera Club. It all sounds somewhat hush hush and say no more to me.

Whilst this very well observed and captured candid image taken in Cuba brings back many mixed memories.

Gives an insight into Life in Cuba - not much sign of wealth there.
I think Dave's idea of a crop would work - don't know how he always sees
a better picture!

Ann - do Dave's suggestion, then resize the image to the lhs by say, 200 pixels, and fill the white canvas with the column.
Would look great. Good spot by Dave.

I did try it without resizing the lhs and actually wasn't sure whether I liked it or not as the lady was too near the edge (aren't we all?Tongue) - I agree it needs something; I'll try your suggestion Malc. Thanks!
