Taken during a wonderful and very instructive photographic holiday in Menorca with Philip Dunn as we walked through the old city of Ciutadella which was once the capital city of Menorca.
Here Philip is approached by a reporter who, I think, wanted some details about his photographic courses for a local newspaper. The girls on the course all thought this young reporter was a rather dishy young fellow!
Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.

Hi John, sounds like you had a great trip and look forward to sharing your thoughts and ideas on the TE weekend... This is well captured and is very sharp.. well presented. Rich

I'm surprised to see that this image has attracted so little interest so far.
I was particularly impressed by the composition here – the interplay between the two subjects is very strong – I can see one of my favourite inverted triangles in the lines formed by the gaze from eye to eye of the two men and the journalist’s forearm holding the microphone. The black strap across the white shirt forms a neat parallel too.
I've done a Composition Analysis WS for illustration.
It seems that you had a very enjoyable week in Menorca.

Not my normal cup of tea, so to speak, and not yours either, but impressive image never-the-less. Difficult white clothing in bright light, Phillip was obviously tutoring well ! ( Possibly burnt out a bit on his T shirt, but who's counting ? )
A good bit of photoreportage, strong images, simple, tight, informative.
Good job !

As I have been away for some weeks now, I realise that there are some fine pictures that I have missed. I am trying to catch up, looking through older thumbprints.
This picture immediately caught my eyes, with the very good composition. Even before I read Peter´s excellent analysis, I had about the same idea with the obvious triangle. This is indeed a photo that should have collected far more "smileys", But I guess you have to give away many more yourself ;)
PS Thanks for mail about the WS:s, I´ll try to answer that later.
