Great graffer 2010-08-16 4:13

Hello Bev,

What an amazing couple! It must have been a very hot day to call for a pith helmet. The other remarkable thing about them is their disparity in height. Her red coat and blue skirt and top stand out in a mostly monochrome image.

The balance of the composition is excellent:

To the right: the pair - he drinking from a bottle of water, she on a mobile phone – are the embodiment of a modern couple on the move.

To the left: six figures in various attitudes, some stationary, some walking.

To be techy: The pith-helmeted figure is close to one vertical line of thirds, the walking figure with the rucksack is on the other. A horizontal thirds line passes close to the lady's sunglasses.

There are good leads into the image provided by the tiled floor and by the curving beam at the top right. The giant heads at the left look on impassively – they've seen it all before!

The whole picture hangs together marvellously.

Kind regards,

Default To graffer: pith helmet

Thanks peter,
of course! pith helmet. I racked my brains but couldn't think of the name. But that happens more and more these days. Thanks once agian for your clever critique. As always you tell me what I have done right. This was definately I shoot from the hip, but not awith a big six shooter but a little pistol - a pont and shoot. I had to pretend to ne snapping something over their heads.
