I really like the lines in this with the splash of dominant red. Have you tried cropping it to remove the orange brickwork? I've tried it with a paper on the iPad to come in on the right side to the white stone and take away the orange which I feel imbalances the image a little. Although the red is dominant and holds the eye I find the orange is there.

It makes for a thinner, tall image but the dimensions work quite well for me. Equally you can come up from the bottom a couple of steps to get a squatter rectangular composition.

Nonetheless an interesting scene

Great shot these regular guys are just dressed like that out to make money from unsuspecting tourists...they were all over Rome and Pompeii... Lucky he was busy snacking or he would have asked you for money for taking his photograph. I got caught by them, not only the one guy but his friend offered to take a pic of me with the friend and I stupidly did...landed up having to give them both money.

Snacking, these guys don't do any guarding, they just stand around getting photographed all day, not such an enjoyable
job when its baking hot. Nice capture Rob..i'm off to Rome again in a couple of weeks. Can't wait.
