It seems to me that so many people have a mobile phone surgically attached to their ears these days. Or to the finger ends. How did they manage without them. I had getting bumped in the supermarket by someone busy texting.

Should I have cropped even closer here?

Hi Paul. I like the way you have framed the girl between her friends, leaving an escape point in the left upper corner.
All the best,
George

Not noticed the pink fingers. Can't be lighting. My guess is recent hair dye and that her fingers are actually dyed that colour.

Paul,
I like this image very much, when I first saw it this morning. You captured the emotion perfectly. Your comment and title about phone sound a bit old fashioned, but I do agree with you. The phone becomes the 'king', people are lost in the trivial matters, talking, typing all the time.... The wonderful part of this photo is that you show us the consequence of this modern behaviour, I especially like the presentation of her friends here, a great atmosphere is created, like a drama, seems they don't know what to do... they can't walk off and they can't talk to each other either.. they have to listen to her and pretend they do not...She doesn't care much, she is in Business.. on and on... I remembered a news from BBC a few months ago, one supermarket's assistant refused to serve a customer who was on the phone at the check out, eventually the supermarket had to apologise...
One thing about coat's pink colour on the right.. I wonder if the colour could be "turned down" a bit, I remember sometimes I get the comments of 'destruction', I don't really know what it is but I wonder if this very bright colour could be seen as destruction.. I'm really not sure, I'll let you to decide, you know more than I do... I'll see if I can try a quick MOD. I'm on laptop, not a good MOD.. with colour layer, it turned grey... better or worse?

I would refuse to deal with someone who talked on the mobile when they should be talking to me.

OK Paul, the way I see it, in terms you might find close to heart.

Miss Sheffield in between Mr Nottingham and Mrs Leeds.

You ask what to do. I'd say Get rid of Mr Nottingham.

Keep in the frame the most relevant parts which happen to be in a diagonal position, aka, the pink!

I know Mr Nottimgham and Miss Sheffield look to teh same direction as too these cities look upwards to see Leeds.
I also see a triangle of black -jacket, phone, jacket- . Then disaster, Mrs Leeds' black hair spoil the pattern.
