    #1 The wrong parts of the photo are in focus. Why do you want me to see the sign so clearly, but you blur the people?

    #2 The textures of Elmo's fur look great. You have a good contrast between the sharp foreground and the semi-blurry background. However, the composition doesn't really work for me. The right hand, OOF, part of the image draws the eye away, but it's not really interesting enough to hold it. Elmo and the girl are in fairly static poses. The girl doesn't seem to have a purpose in this image. You don't really tell a story with this picture.

    I always thought Elmo was really cute (as I used to imagine him TINY), but this size!?!?!? I'd scream and run, I guess ;) ;) ;). It would have been interesting to see the child's reaction on that huge Elmo...

    Thanks for all the comments.

    The furry thing in photo #2

    The sign was my subject. I tried shots with focus on the people, but then I couldn't get the sign to be legible and it just blended too much into the rest of the background.

    It was a missed opportunity for sure. Something far more interesting was going on here that I wasn't able to capture. I seem to miss a lot of these moments having to focus manually :meh:

    I'll run into him again. Next time I'll try to focus more on people's reactions.

    I guess the image does have that look to it. Unfortunately, I framed the shot and squatted there for 20 minutes waiting for the right combination of people to pass through.

    Thanks for looking.
