I think this is my fav of the 3 similar postings... interesting, Lannie...
Thank you, Sheryl. Thanks for visiting. --Lannie
Again, as with the other versions, here is the original, (after being brightened by about three stops, but that is a long story). The shot posted for review was a "discovered" shot found upon processing the original. It was not the shot that I went out to take. I made a lot of mistakes on this one. --Lannie

Thank you, Afshin. I was not originally trying to include him in the photo, but I decided to keep shooting as he passed. With the wide angle lens I had no idea what I was catching until I got home. That is one reason that I like lot of megapixels: one can blow up and crop almost beyond belief. I love your portrait work, by the way. --Lannie
Original The original is far superior to the crop. With the original photograph, it looks as if the man is part of the tableau. He's walking along with the rest of them, only he seems out of place. With the crop, it's not quite so clear.
"With the original photograph, it looks as if the man is part of the tableux." Nope, I don't think so. (Were you perchance reaching for "tableaux" or "tableau"?) --Lannie
Spelling Corrected But I still like the full version better.
Okay, Stan. Thanks for viewing and giving me your opinion. I might try something like that standing a bit closer to the wall next time--or perhaps with a different lens. --Lannie
The Mocking Mural IV This photo is perhaps a commentary on race relations, past and present, in Salisbury, North Carolina, where it was taken on April 2, 2008.
