Not to be critical of the image (as it displays the technique well) but why the circular 'light' area on the lower part of the picture? (light hitting the lense area?) Any way to post process that out? I'm pretty green regarding both photography and PP, just curious.

I don't know what circular light you see as I can't see any on my monitor?
This photo was taken on a very sunny day and it is a 12x zoom if recall coreectly. I took about thirty photos from the same spot of people just walking through the Nakamisen shoppin area in front of Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo. There seemed to be a lot of school trips there so I got a lot of students photos...most of which were not so clear as this one.
You can P&P anything I guess but I can't on this one as i can't see the circle of light you mention
Must be my monitor?

Actually, it is a half circle (but only 'roughly' a half circle), starting just above the 4th button and taking much of the lower portion of that area. Perhaps my monitor is showing too much contrast (it's NOT professionally calibrated.) but it shows in all the images here and does move with scrolling (ie 'stays' with the pics so it's not the monitor itself.) Anyone else ? Perhaps I need to adjust my contrast down ?

It isn't your contrast, the semicircle on the bottom of the photo is plain as day. Perhaps it's just the way the light is hitting the person..
