Great iainsp 2016-11-20 1:48

Greetings Gert,

I have a fabulous book on the History of African Photography - and this shot would fit perfectly in to that book as part of a line of itinerant and studio based West-African photographers. I can see why you might be a little unhappy with the colours - the sky did not come out particularly well and the greenery on the rooftops could be better - but the colour and detail on the people and their clothing is fantastic. Maybe a much tighter crop and larger ratio of width:length on the frame? By the way, an alternate title (depending on the impression you are trying to convey) might be 'Big Men and Little Boys'. The phrase Big Man tends to have a well-understood, political connotation throughout much of the continent, referring to someone who wields influence from title and position.

Anyway, a great shot which I really like,
