      Pros-Wicked color and saturation for effect.
      Great trio portrait with a pleasing gently curving eye-line.
      A title that firmly places you in the- this wasn't a great or stimulating instruction for me., camp.
      Cons. Too many busy and distracting elements that do not service or compliment the central theme.
      Despite the tent roof in the background forming a triangle and pyramid shape, the visual playfulness grates rather than adds.
      Hope this doesn't offend as it 's hard to fail when you set a high standard for yourself and me.

      love the image . . . I think the problem is that there are three of them against one of you . . . . intrepid street photographer. Girl power . . . .

      Nicely done Chris.

      The positioning of the three of them is great although I agree with that there is a lot going on which is maybe a distraction. However, the vibrant colours and the fact that they are the only people facing you saves the day.
