Default Is there a picture here ?

I almost never take photos of people but I was walking down the street in Vienna and saw these 2 guys playing this game on the street and thought it was interesting. Worth keeping or not ?




And then I saw this politician sitting on a bench so I took his photo too!

Looks like they are playing backgammon.
I think it needs some post process but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've had people tell me photos looked great and I thought they looked like they were ready for the cut list.
What do you think?

First pick: you can't cut people's heads! Don't like it.
Second pick: first time i see a Pinocchia. Love it. Very nice.

the first one, i think its too soft and too cut-off to get much out of.
#2 works though, not sure why that is there or anything, but it works.

JustinThyme- Cut it !! defininetly. When I first framed it, there was a 3rd guy in it. But he waved to me to wait and stepped out of the picture and I moved in a little and ended up cutting off the other two. Bad move.

Ordo-Agree with you.

Hards80- #1 agree
#2 just a silly shot.

Thanks for the comments !

DonP.
I do like the second one, but if I were to say anything it would be maybe crop off some of the right side (maybe just right of the leaf on the ground), as it is really bland and unintresting with nothing to look at compared with all the things going on on the left side. The puppet is cool and a good find but I find the store front just as intresting. Thanks for the shot.
