I like the composition which I spotted from the thumb. however, when opening the pic, although I like the idea, I find the actual setting depressing and the expression on the man in the picture rather hostile. as a contrast to surroundings, the innocence of the little girl and the brightness of the coat make a social comment, if you like, however I find it depressing overall. this however does not alter the fact it is still a good shot!
Interesting. I like your composition, I think this was well spotted but I also find it depressing somehow. Still I can not fault it technically or aesthetically it is just a personal observation.
Thank you all for your comments. I see what you mean about the depressing landscape cos it WAS bloody wet and depressing -this is a summer resort in the north of India during monsoon. Hence my choice to keep the colour of the raincoat. Paul, do you think you could stick a smile on the man's face:)
Although I have to say that you are right that the weather did not help and made the photo a bit depressing, It did a good job making the girl with the pink coat stand out, good effect. I really like this photo. You should try these kind of effects on diffrent backgrounds.
I like the effect Isabelle. Two people walking through a cold damp street, a feeling of having walked a way and still waiting to arrive home, maybe something on his mind. Life isn't always sunny and cheery and I think you captured the mood of this very well.
