    This is where Calvin stands all the time at Westbury Pharmacy Cafe. Except when he needs to ring someone up - at which time he moves a little bit to his right.

    D70, Nikon 12-24mm lens.

    All comments appreciated.

    OK - but I have to say that the guy in it is the last thing that gets me looking.

    What about a crop to portrait format and halve the image so he stands out more.

    But - nice shot - sell it to him.. or the shop!!!!

    Thanks for all the great comments.

    Spike, this image, to me, isn't really just a portrait of Calvin. Whenever I visit this place, this is what I see as I pay - the smallness of Calvin, further accentuated by the overbearing burden of his signs. That is what I had hoped to capture and I think many may see that. However your comment shows that I could be wrong...there could be a different direction I could take with the image. So here is a cropped version similar to what you mention for comparison. I think I still prefer the original, wider crop but I will let you guys decide which way to go.

    Stick with the first, no crop needed!!! All the signs everywhere are great, and the crop takes out a lot of them!!!

    I agree don't crop this one, it gives you more to look at, and is very interesting, great shot
