David, it was nice of the young man to wait for your shot, but I so wish he wasn't there at all.

She is so into her book and the setting is perfect.

Hi Mac, thanks for the comment! Shaun Wilson said something very similar but I actually waited for the man to appear in the right spot because I thought that he added something a bit sinister to the shot, maybe like a stalker or someone she doesn't want near her? I also processed this a little differently because of the man - it's a blend of a colour and BW version of the same shot, with less colour where the man is.

Regards
David

A very nice shot David and even better viewed large but I have to agree with Mac, I think it's the checked shorts, logo on the T shirt and shoulder bag that are a bit of a distraction.

Nice shot David - I think both would work well - one with and one without the man! For me as she is so engrossed in the book, this one would work better without him IMHO
