Open Day at the Community Allotment. I'll upload the colour version some time, but I'm in a b&w mood today.
Thanks for looking,
moving...might crop out the lh gate post?
A very telling shot, naturally framed, touchy and precarious. Great tonal range, nicely converted, Moira.
a goodun Moira.Crop it tighter on the left hand side and it will be even better...go on you know you want to....
A good view point and mono conversion, do agree about the LH side crop.
Thanks folks. Three people want a crop on the left - interesting, because I cropped this a little but very carefully, to balance the dark strips left and right. Sorry, I'm not changing that!
I like the post as it is Moira as it does balance and frame it for me.
I'm happy with your crop, Moira, but it might look better if the post was lightened slightly to balance the wood on the right.
Are the ladies twins or do they just look alike? The crop is just right for me and the left is darker because it's in shade the right is in the light.
Care in the community Moira, caring image.
Thanks for noticing what's in between the two edges, Dougie, I was beginning to worry!
The two ladies were members of a group from a local care home, I don't think they are related. John, in the middle is an old friend of mine. I would add that he's an outrageous flirt. The ladies may be aware of that...
I like the way the young man is gently steadying the elderly man. And the two identical ladies. This has a feel-good factor to it.
And the crop looks just fine to me.
As far as the composition and crop are concerned I shall sit on the fence Moira. And I shall just sit back and admire the image for what it is. A great insight into this extremely worthwhile Community Project, which certainly embraces every aspect of community life. It is particularly nice to see the inclusion of the less able members of the community being part of something quite special.
P.S. If you require any seeds etc please let me know.
Reminds me of a scene from Waiting for God. This is an image that is most respectfully handled.
Well, I think it's fine as it is - the gatepost on the left balances the one on the right. Great photo journalistic capture, Moira
The image frames itself, no more cropping necessary!
How did you loose the win/loose thing?
An interesting slice of English life!
It is nice that they have the ground capable for wheelchairs to get around. A good image of the community Moira and what they do for their seniors........Sandy

Jennn, there's now an opt-out, it's under My Settings > Website Options > Gallery Options. If they had included it from the outset they would have had a lot less flak, it's the compulsory bit that grated. I hated compulsory games at school...
Meanwhile thanks everyone, and the gatepost stays!
very well done....
thanks a lot 4 the UA..a big suprise
What great work these carers do, Moira, full marks to them, and to you for capturing the moment. Carol
Well done you Moira standing up for what you like is the most important thing, everyones opinion has some good points and I agree with some but the main thing is you like it the way it is and that's good. Now can we remove the post........just joking....good tones works well in B/W.
Moira, i like the crop very much, i think it is rhubarb. .
Nice one and well done.
I think mono adds to a more ''serious'' mood here Moira.
Colour would be a bit more ''cheerful'' I think.
Depends on which mood you want to see here !!
It's an image which needs to be b&w imho. A thought provoking scene of every day people. I wonder what cake that lady is eating..
Ann, it's a cream scone with strawberries. I remember details like that...
Cheers everyone, I have spent far too much time in the badlands of the site (ie the forums), that's against all my principles and I need a return to sanity.
Smashing shot Moira, good view point. I like the old Lady in the Wheel Chair noshing a Biscuit
I think it's better in B & W it shows more.
Sue, thanks so much for the UA! A very pleasant surprise to round off the day.
Mono suits this so well, as I am getting older I appreciate the tender way you have shown this image
The dark strips laft and right mirror the constrains of the client's world, Moira. He is restricted and is only allowed a certain amount of freedom before reaching his borders.
Nice mono shot Moira, if i'm that old i going to try be a flirt, will be past chasing women, Peter..
Very carefully presented, suits mono and at 76 I know that feeling, and it's nice they are getting involved, without a Hobby after retirement some just give up! like your photo it says a lot. not enough hours in the day for me, regards Leon.
I think this works only in bnw, Moira.
the absence of color concentrates the attention on the subjects, on the meaning of the moment.
love the slightly low point of view, it shows empathy with the two ladies.

I thought the same Moira . I can't see a chair for this Gentleman ? Wonder if he will sit on one of the Ladies kneexx
Chairs are out of sight to the right, Mavis. But your story is much more appealing...
Excellent photojournalism Moira, you do these so well
What more can i say every one has said it for me well done.
