Frustration All Round

Photobucket
I'm feeling a little frustrated, I need to get out and look at something different to inspire me I think. Mind you the freezing weather is not encouraging me to do so!

Frustration of a different kind is this shot. I shot this (along with a few more) from the hip. I find this kind of thing rewarding and frustrating. For me this could have been a great shot but the moment is gone in a split second. No time for adjusting aperture, metering, focus points etc. Probably only one or two in ten is actually ok. So I posted this more because it isn't quite right than I thought it was spot on. I hope that makes sense?

Oh and the guy sitting down sure clocked me, nothing unusual really but he doesn't half look like Michael Shumacher-I wonder........;O)

Agreed. This is a good shot. It feels well composed, love the red and yellow framing, and the look on their faces. What is the guy standing on the left thinking about?

Love this shot - the two men mirroring the two windows and framed by red and their posture. A rewarding shot! :}
