I took this years ago in Prague with a 35 SLR
Scanned it and cleaned it up a little.

I would like some opinions about this photo, whether its lacking, what you would change or how you would have composed it, even if it was worth posting in the first place.

Thanks for your advice.

Definately worth posting.

I can't make up my mind if it is posed or a candid - but that doesn't matter because I think that question is part of its charm.

It looks slightly washed out but that is probably due to the age of the shot and the scanning process.

I have added a modification for you - but feel free to ignore it if you don't like it (I have a tendancy to overprocess).

I think composition-wise this shot works well. The contrast between the two women looking at the photographer and the other little groups in the background doing their own thing is good. There is a clear focus to the shot but at the same time plenty of interest to let the eye wander around.

Technically it comes up a bit short. The exposure isn't quite right. The light was working against you, I think. The sun looks pretty harsh and at a guess from the shadows the shot was taken around the middle of the day. This has given you overexposure particularly on the blue shirt of the girl on the right and in the central part of the building behind the statue. Later in the day and you may have got that lovely golden light which casts really long shadows.
