Nice one Jimmy,thought I was at an anti-Bush Demo in the USA for a sec !!!Smile.Keep on 'snapping'.

PS.I worked for a summer in the '80's at Ochtertyre House [bar/restaurant] when D**k Groot owned it,a lovely part of the country you live inWink.For some reason I'm not 'allowed' to spell Mr Groots name as the short version of Richard !!!!!

Great image, very well caught.

Perhaps leaning to the left a little, though it may be the angle of the placard that gives that impression.

I was sure I'd find a comment advising you to turn it into portrait format, by cropping out the sides, as someone would have found it distracting. I was preparing for a fight for the original shot; I think it's a much better shot for having the surroundings shown. It puts the shot into context, & explains his doleful expression.

Great shot, well seen & captured.
