A lively shot which gives a good feeling for the event, and you have dealt well with the lighting which must have been quite dark in this area. The colours are quite saturated - maybe a little OTT and you camera may have different settings for processing jpegs, but this is a matter of preference and you may have chosen this, in which case, it cetainly adds to the liveliness. The woman looking into the shot is a definite plus but the woman looking out in the centre is not such a good thing. As you say, you had to take your chance, but maybe another chance would have come along. Or maybe you could have asked someone? Some people are okay with that. I would be, for instance! Cropping it to get rid of the bit of hazard tape on the bin would be helpful as it does draw the eye to the edge of the frame. Where was your focus point? It is difficult to know how sharp the picture is (I think it may have lost sharpness when you downsized). I think I would have picked the woman's face to focus on if I had a choice. Sue

Well Mike a good candid here of a popular subject - street markets. I do find the aspect ratio just a bit too long and would sugegst that a crop is made to eliminate the extreme RHS just after the painting of the carousel.

The lady to the left is rather good as an inclusion but the central one is not so I would like to suggest getting rid of her - No not a contract - photographic removal, that is cheaper than the first thought.

Those two things done I quite like the result apart from the blown sky about which I guess there was very little you could do. EXIF is fine so no suggestion there, I have uploaded a mod to show you my idea.

For me, its really not good form to take shots of artists work in an area like this unless you ask permission. Most artists wont mind a wide shot, but will object to close shots that can be replicated and printed, so be sensitive if they are originals. Might be more flexibility if you are looking at widely available prints.

Anyway, back to the shot. For me, its not sharp here on the site. It could be that the original is sharp, but when re sizing, you need to open your re sized image after you save it, and then check and adjust sharpness, save again, and then upload.

The saturation is very high, and this can be due to the fact that the contrast is also high.. Toning down the blown highlights on the left, lifting shadows elsewhere, reducing sat, and sharpening can make a difference. Ive uploaded a mod to show what I mean.


regards

Quite like the format bur the centre figure would be better not there and, even on my tabket, I think the sharpness is a touch off. However, good street photography.
