Nice pic but,

I think that you should have steped away from the wall and maybe got him in the sun, not sure about the sun.

Later

Yes, I could have done that. But I didnt get time to plan anything. Hardly got time to compose the shot, he was walking fast and I just had time to get it. Thanks for the suggestion.

I like the pic...has good overall appeal, the straight lines of the wall draw your attention to the direction where the man is. I would have just used the walking man for a focal point, and perhaps changed the aperture a bit to soften the focus of the near wall. The geometric lines are kinda cool, the way they channel your gaze to the subject. Best regards,

very nice crop digcamfan,

when i saw the first photo, i said, the man should be cropped to the top. I scrolled down and saw that you did it perfectly. Good catch jaseera. I find that some of the better photos i take are those taken impromptu.

I think this is a nice picture of a wall. As the viewer's eyes travel the wall, they find a man which makes it a bit more interesting.

Bump up the contrast of the original and crop out the sign and you have a visually effective image.
