Quote: A pity about the chap on the right who is competing for attention but a very good conversion to mono.

I've mulled over this for a while. I composed it deliberately to include the book title easily visible bottom right (the Local History Society had asked me to take the pictures for their publicity), so I didn't want to crop Brian off. He was taking the cash, so quite important on the day! I decided that I quite like the balance. So Brian stays...
Thanks everyone, got to go out now.

I think I preferred the square crop, without the other man. The two children and the old man form the perfect group.

Yesterdays version was the 'crop' without Brian, so I can see why you would want to include him on this version, but the niggle for me is that his forehead and nose are resting on the frame.

Well Moira,I won't get out as much as I used too,so perhaps I should settle down and write my lifes work and get it published. No kids could read it however as it will need to be over 21's only !! They do say EVERYONE is capable of writing a book.I do not believe this.I am still waiting on JK Rowling to write one !!

I think I prefer the previous one where the girl was looking at her grandfather with interest here she seems not to! It's interesting reading the other comments how we all see things so differently, which is great!

A moment of introspection caught here Moira.

Coming late to comment. If you crop that gentle man on the right, you loose a wonderful lead with those books in the corner. You could use the darken edges soft maybe - anyway, sounds like you've already come up with a solution, so looking forward to seeing it.

Mick's memoirs would definitely be well worth a read, no doubt there'd be plenty of references to rust, the dockers club and Big Aggie in there!Wink
