We took a trip to Cramond, cut off from the mainland by a tidal causeway. It was quite windy. In case you're wondering what my friend is holding, they are Greek Bagpipes.

This will probably get shouted down for being to random! But, I liked the shot so I thought I'd throw something in at the last minute again :)

I thought this was a cool shot the moment I saw it. It's a shame to see it place so low and I would have expected it to score much higher.

Wow what a great photo, It just has such a great atmosphere to it, you can almost feel the wind and cold. I would love to know what the instrument is that he is holding, looks a bit like another version of bagpipes. Good luck 10

This is a great picture but what is he carrying?

I like these type of shots. Even though the bloke in the background is OOF he is engaging the photographer. The foreground fellow is nice and sharp. As far as placement in the frame I think the space on the left puts the image a little off balance. Cropping to a square I think would work well here.
