    Very unique shot; nicely done.

    I like that a lot

    Looks like it could be a wristwatch advertisement

    Thanks for the feedback so far guys - much appreciated. Here is a local vendor in Cairo that I struck up a conversation with. As far as I could tell he is known to locals only as 'chestnut guy'. I can't decide which pic I prefer. Any opinions??

    definately #2 for me. gives the subject some context and the viewer gets a feel for the market place. and i prefer the pose, ie: smile.

    Thanks for the comment Rooz. I always have the tendency to get in really tight to the subject and in doing so I think that I often remove the subject from the context. I've beet trying to remain conscious of this but it still gets away from me at times. Nice observation.

    nq, i saw a great shot done in a market like this somewhere, may be in petersons book. he asked the subject to remain perfectly still, then used a really slow shutter speed to make the background peoples movements a blur but the subject nice and sharp. it really added to the atmosphere of the shot and i've thought about it alot since then but havent had an opportunity to do it. something to consider for next time.

    I prefer #1, as it gives a better view of the vendor, the bundle on the top of his head is not cut off, more context

    I agree with Drama, I prefer number 1. I find the people in the background distracting in the second one and like the apples in his hand in the first. I guess it's what you prefer that really matters though.
