    Wow! What a scene. Congratulations on your quick reflexes, I would still be there gaping at the empty street pondering whether I should have taken a photo.
    To answer your question... Judging from the composition, with the man and the boy seemingly relegated to the right I think you did make a conscious decision at the time of taking the photo to include the flowers. :-)
    Have a nice day

    Hi Gert
    Superb series of documentary images from Cochin. The image showing the canal makes it look like a quiet and sleepy place rather than, as you say in the note, a major city. But the other two clearly show that there is a lot of activity happening, everyone busy trying to earn some money. All three are beautiful photographs and I think I like the overloaded truck one the most.
    All in subtle colours of Kodachrome slides.

    Hi Ike
    Amazing colours! Great composition showing the cliffs and also autumnal hues. This is my favourite place in Scotland, thank you for bringing those memories back.

    Hi Benny
    Perfect timing to capture this ritual which looks like synchronised walking. The costumes are marvellous and the "writing on the wall" adds even more sense of place and context.

    Hi Bulent
    Lovely photograph of late autumn in New England. Almost all leaves have fallen except those pink few still hold on to their branches. The two lines of boulders add interst and make for dynamic composition by criss crossing the vertical columns of pine trunks.

    Hi Rob
    Excellent photograph of this intriguing piece of art. Winter sunshine brings out colours and side lighting emphasises the shape of the subject. Low pov allows to show it with a lot of sky included in the photo so the plane trails add extra lines to the composition.

    Fabulously observed and captured scene of a woman attending to domestic chores. The cat adds something special to the scene too and it matches the colour of the carpet and autumn leaves.

    Hi Gyorgy
    Great shot showing this landsape in context. Also a reminder that Europe was once divided and that it can happen soon again.
    How did you manage to insert letters from another alphabet? I bet it's easy but I'm just so useless when it comes to "TE technology"... ;)

    Hi Abmdsudi
    This image has all the qualities of a great portrait. The poses of your "models", one looking at you, one gazing in the distance thus leaving it to the viewer's imagination what she is looking at. Masterful composition and exposure with the frame and dark background. Strong sense of place and cultural connotations with tanaka on their faces.

    Play of light and shadow beautifully photographed. The mixture of golden and red colours is trully autumnal. Backlighting works really well in this image, I espacially like the halos around the walking people.

    Very impressive night image, with all the lights looking their best on the elegant dark background. Great use of complementary colours and the tiny silhouttes of people give a sense of scale.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    The moment masterfully captured, the way the novice monk is looking in your director, his adult gaze, is quite amazing. His eyes speak volumes. Congrats on your timing.
    I also really like the crop and the green and red colour palette.
