This should be a powerful piece of work and it is for sure. But it has the feel of being stage managed (I am sure it wasn't) which sort of works against it, for my anyway.

I don't know the answer but I think perhaps the couple form an almost seperate image to that of the unfortunate homeless guy. A couple of steps more to close the gap and bingo - problem solved or you could have moved you position to the left - maybe

I think also I would lose some of the fg pavement.

On a completely different tack - why not give the homless guy a go with the camera - so he can take a picture of the people walking by - now you have me thinking.

Thankyou for your comment Ketch.

I see where you coming from. unfortunately there is nothing could be done this was far from stage managed it was just a couple coming off the Millennium bridge, walking by the homeless guy.

As for giving the homeless guy a camera, I could just not wash for a couple of days where some dirty cloths with old runners and take the photos my self. Now there's an idea!

A powerful image, and there are elements at work if you look close that make it more so.

Look at the standing mans left foot, and then his right. They were walking straight past, but decided to veer to the right to avoid getting close to him. The expression of the woman seems to be empathetic, asking "should we give him something", but hes leading them away. For this reason I thing the distance works, - its to to maneuver that makes it strong. This is something that weve all done at some point in time, and putting it as youve done makes it seem so shameful.


BTW, - whats that over the homeless guys head, - at first I thought it might be a halo!


On the techie side, a little sharper, perhaps brighter, - and if it is a halo, throw in a few angels.

Powerful social comment. Well spotted and taken.

I have to agree with Ketch if the couple had been closer it would have tightened up the image.
