Always difficult shots ,one small sound and an ear twitches or head turns,but you must be very satisfied with this.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
Many thanks to you all for your kind comments, advice and ratings, it's always a good start to the day when you see one of your images appreciated by so many excellent photographers in their own right.
RL tried the sharpening on the 3rd image of the series and yes it certainly worked, thank you.
DP I did add the black background afterwards as the original was up against a shop window.
Thank you all again!
