Hey Mister!

I'm not sure I'm too happy with this one. I think there are too many textures and distractions in the shot. I find that the shirt stripes and the floor texture clash. Also I'm not sure I like the toning. Anyway now I've told you why I don't like it, what I do like is the way the little girl is looking at Deji. What do you think?

On another note. I was invited to a poetry evening at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden (for those of you into that sort of thing I strongly suggest you check it out) and on discussion with some poets I found that the problem I have with titling my images is very common amongst many artists. For that reason I'm not going to be titling my work unless I feel led to. I'll just number them. If you can think of an appropriate title for this one please send it in as a suggestion.

NY tommorrow!

lol, such a great street capture...i dont think you should be so self-critical, my attention was immediately drawn to the girl and the man....the footpath came in far later...
I absolutely adore this shot, truly a keeper for the wedding album :d

Fantastic bit of observation here Jide. I'm so glad that Deji has his shirt tucked in wink maybe you could get him to wear a plain one next time!

Your title is fine.

excellent shot! We may just be able to 'slide' this photo into the album afterall smile Deji, lap it up... it's your week!
It is a funny shot and I would love to see it hanging in a gallery. No, my personal cup of tea but it is something that I can see growing on me with time.
