    I like the post-processing style that renders the entire image similar to the sculpture. However, the vignette doesn't work for me.

    Neat shot! That's what I looked like when I had a mustache - and hair!

    Very nicely composed. I like it. And as a matter of personal taste the vignette works for me. Draws my eye into the central main theme. So Richard, are you telling us that with a belly like that you were 'preggars' as well? LOL

    I think this is a great shot and a great example of a photographer finding a great image even in an unlikely setting. As is so often the case in street photography timing is essential. It wouldn't work nearly as well with just the butcher sign/sculpture - the old couple add a human interest twist.

    I also love the processing, including the vignette. I tend to use them on almost all my street shots as I find they help to focus on the subject.

    One of the bosses at a local Dairy looked like that and always employed staff from the local agency who were 100% female; he used to be chasing them around the office most days. So yes I can believe he did. It looks tonemapped and I think that is brilliant in this image, intentional or not.

    I am glad it has given you all a bit of a smile....my stuff has been a bit 'dark' of late.

    Most interesting to hear that the vignette seems to work for most. Really appreciate the feedback.

    Re: I tell you Mabel.....he winked at me!

    Vignette works for me, that's about all I can say on technique as I'm a total beginner. I don't even know what tone-mapping is yet so enough of that. I just think it's a real fun image and a great title, I wouldn't have thought of that scenario without the title and it made me laugh when the penny dropped.
