Not that I know a lot about these things you understand but it looks to me like that stuff you chew - is it khat or something like that?

Anyway agree with Frank's (Focus_Man) comments and good mod.

Best wishes

I would hazard its some version of a green leafy vegetable Smile its an interesting scene, i would probably look for a different point of view to make it more interesting Smile. For the image here i feel the photo is more the two men selling the stuff since the other elements are at the edges they would add as a distraction. Have uploaded a mod to illustrate my point. Also agree with the other points made above.

cheers and hope this helps

Thanks for the critiques and mods everyone. I myself was in two minds about cropping the figure on the right. But as a street scene I thought ihe inclusion of the bystanders may be more representative . From the compositional point of view I agree the cropping down is better. I have been sharpening pics in "high pass" recently Frank, perhaps I need to increase the percentage a bit more.

Thanks and kind regards everyone.
