This was taken in a Fijian Market where these gentlmen were selling or "minding" some vegetables, what kind I do not know as they were of a variety that I hadn't seen before..Their selling style was very laid back..Judith

Great image Judith, these characters are usually anything but laid back about sales, it is often very hard to escape from their sales patter.

I would be inclined to clone out the person's back on the lhs. You could then crop the lhs to just outside the white shirt of the man on that side of the image. It may just make for a stronger compostion.
Not sure where you got the laid back approach from, they look scary to me. Smile
