    I like the wider second shot over the cropped version. I think that the cropped person in the background is too close to the edge and draws the eye. Also I think you are cropping out some of the story. The line of sight of the little boy up top is to the second group of people in your background. In the cropped version you don’t know what he is looking at. Also you cropped out the clothing that the woman in your background is looking at. I think it is a great picture and I want to see the whole story. 🙂

      Hi Beth, many thanks for your detailed comments! I also prefer the version that provides for more context. Initially, I only wanted to post the wider second version, but then decided to post the cropped one as well, so readers could make the comparison. It is interesting to see how different persons view the different shots.

    Street theatre at its best. Love the little head peeping over the wall in the background. (I also prefer the crop on the left, as it suggests a tighter narrative with all the action centred around the woman with the bandana.) This shot would be a great entry for a photo caption contest!

    I like the busy feel of the wider second shot over the cropped version.

    I like the head above the fence. It makes the picture special!

      Yeah, it’s a funny sight, isn’t it? Personally, I think the photograph somewhat resembles a scene on a stage of a theater… because of the background (the wall, the wiring and the roof which functions as a frame) and – of course – the ‘dramatic’ action in the foreground. But maybe that’s just me and my effervescent phantasy 😉
