Was originally taking just the guy in the bg, when the neighbouring butcher came dancing sideways in front of me. Singing "How..are..you?" over and over again.

Thanks for viewing large, all fb welcome

(How are the skintones?

I'm putting a more saturated bg as a version. Apparently my greens are weak (colourblind), so let me know which one works best for you)

Thanks Koen..even for me that a big part of the pic. Although it probably looks slightly different.

Should mention that his towel was actually white (and an eyesore), so I tried to blend it in by changing the colour

building a superb series there Tommy. The greens (both versions) are SO good as a background. Lovely face this man has and the meat hanging there, great. Bert

Excellent shot, the greens look great and I think that it was the right thing to change the cloth colour as it would be very distracting left white. Love the guy in the bg peering around the shoulder. Fabulous composition, loving this.

Sueprb image. I must be partly color-blind too, cause frankly I see very little difference in the two versions. Love the green background complementing the reds in the hanging meat. You picked a perfect color for that towel.

No no Lydia...that was the guy Smile. Although, obviously, he should have known that a white towel would give me trouble that ******* but still

Thanks everyone
