You were lucky that there seemed to be something more to their "taste" further on.
Wonderful shot.

A really good and well timed shot. Real trouble coming for something!

It has to be difficult to work with such harsh light. I havent yet been to the continent, but we see many shots here that indicate the light is mainly harsh, and often from straight above.

Nothing wrong with the shot, I would simply suggest to get a little more contrast, - and its only a post processing this; sharpen slightly more, and enhance the existing eye catch lights by brightening them a little.

Thanks everyone, this was mid-day to be honest so the light was harsh, also have this on a lovely BW conversion on conversion. In sayin the light is harsh, the early morning & late afternoon light is generally brilliant...come see for yourself, the opportunities are endless!Grin

I don't think it needs more contrast because the light is already so very contrasty. Increasing contrast will increase blacks and brighten highlights. A fine shot of opportunist nature. I think it is just a tiny bit over exposed. Less exposure will darken blacks, but also whites thus, in effect, reducing contrast.
