Thanks for allowing me to edit this picture. You are surrounded by so much rich interest, but once your brain has made a selection, then prepared to be ruthless!

I feel that the flags on the right make a fabulous strong picture their own. They are so celebratory and are designed to draw all eyes for attention.


Vijay Mathew: “Political Campaign!”

However, your concept made the early worker your prime interest!

So, our job as photographers is to now decide what to include and what doesn’t support that to be mercilessly excluded.


Vijay Mathew: “Early to Work!”

I have added light to the face and changed the perspective by dropping the camera closer to the ground a little.
