    Hey mansi :D
    Well the crop is a little tight...mebbe that's what you're unsure of? Or perhaps you just needed to include a bit more of his surroundings to show exactly what is going on. I assume he's holding those candy sticks....mebbe if you'd included more of his body you'd have told more of a story?
    As is it is it's a beautiful portrait with soft glowing light and excellent colour contrast and sharpness happening...nice bokeh too that would not be as prominent had you taken a wider shot.
    guess it's all about give and take. In this case you went for up close and personal.
    Keep em coming! :thumbup: :D

    I really like the original mansi. :D Well balanced composition.
    It gives us a bit more context to work with. I see nothing wrong with it. Slap it in yer portfolio and carry on makin kikass street photog. :thumbup: :mrgreen: ;)

    Another cool shot. I think for me it is the brightness of the "pink" It keeps taking my eye away from the subject. The expression is great. There is nothing wrong with the photo at all. I think it is just the pink being so bright, that keeps taking my eye over there. The other eye usually stays where it is. :)
