I find it quite difficult to put into words why I love this so much, but love it I do.

There's something about the way that the shadow in this frame plays off against the kite that made it that works so well here, and the birds near the top of the frame finish the composition off beautifully; I don't think it would work so well without it. I like the highly saturated colours as well which bring to mind Martin Parr.

My only bone of contention is the figure just walking out of the frame on the very edge of the image on the right - it would've been nice to have has more space around him, or to crop him out altogether ( though perhaps from a purist, photographic 'truth' perspective, this is not needed). Regardless, this image really works from me, and it's the kind of thing that wouldn't seem out of place in an art photography book.

Michael.
