    Nothing to do, no one to play with.

    Out for a walk with my daughter. Here is my attempt to capture emotion of loneliness.
    C&C always welcome.

    I would so much like if you were able to post this at a much larger size, say 1200 pixels on the long side. It is only at 500 pixels and is, I think, too small for us to properly appreciate.

    Hi Donald,

    I look forward to your comments.
    I've linked to flickr. If the image is still not large enough, I will save here at CiC.

    Oh, that's so much better. And I think you have achieved your objective. The pour soul looks lost and forlorn.

    One question to consider - I don't know if this is cropped or if this is the full frame. I wondered if all the graffiti is actually competing for attention with your daughter and whether a fairly significant crop from the bottom and right hand side would not focus more attention onto her without losing the mood of the image. Maybe something to experiment with.

    Hi,

    Yes, the graffiti is pretty bold. The image has also been cropped eliminating the majority of the sky.
    I will play with the image, trying to reduce the intensity of the blue graffiti and another image with the cropping you are suggesting.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Below are the implemented suggestions by Donald.
    In the first image, I've muted the graffiti slightly.
    The second image is a much tighter crop.

    Thanks for viewing.
