Irony is a hard one to photograph. Seeing these abstract pigs at the Mexican Market just hit me as colorful and ironic. It is shot hand held with natural light.

Oh no! It's happened! Now all that's left is for hell to freeze! Nice choice. They're very colorful and the crosses in the background can send loads of messages.

I would have probably tried an angle that didn't block the smaller pig's face, but I really like the symmetry.

too much going on in this shot, in my opinion it would have been better if one or both of the flying pigs had been placed in front of a solid background.

Funny and colorful. It is a bit busy - my eyes ahve aq hard time picking out the central subject. Perhaps different lighting could help draw attention to the fron pig, or a smaller DOF

Very busy background. I feel that even with the depth of field it is hard to seperate the pigs from the background.
