I like this candid, with its different textures of nature and one texture of pocketbook, with the strange awed look of the men, and I think I found the right composition for it, to give it a cinematic or at least dramatic feeling.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An interesting image that contributes to the open challenge.

Mediating or meditating? One texture of pocketbook? I like the mono presentation it works well. I think as far as composition is concerned I would have waited a fraction later when the men would not have the stalks of the foreground plants dissecting them. The expression of awe applies more to the front man rather than second as we cannot see his eyes. The ladies very colourful handbag is quite a dominant feature but we see nothing of her. When I first looked at this I though they were carrying the wooden structure in the background. The bright highlight on his arm is the one flaw in terms of overall exposure and tones it is really quite appealing in this respect.

Thank you for your submission, Sid
