Taken in London. Went photographing a friend and his band rehearsing, and this is their singer.
The police had just fenced up a door.
I might have gone for a tighter crop.
The top of guitar bag is really distracting, come to think of it, but I can't imagine a single way I could have minimized that while keeping the police still in the shot.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

I love the freshness and spontaneity of this shot. The girl looks like she's having fun getting ready to whip off a snowball, and one of the cops is watching her. They may not even know it's a girl from the back with the hat/hair/guitarcase/leather jacket. But still watching that potential hooligan! Compositionally I don't see anything to complain about, though maybe you could have dodged her face a little and burned out the few highlights - the ring on her right hand, a few other teeny glints here and there. The b/w is a good choice, and I didn't really notice the guitar case til read your notes. I feel like I'm there watching this scene unfold. And even before I saw this in voting, I thought that she looked a lot like my sister-in-law...and yep she's a singer in a rock band! Pity that the voters don't see the beauty in pictures like this, but such is life. Keep shooting and entering!

Feel free to PM me,

Oh yes, you most definitely needed the police in the shot! Very fun!

A delightful Image, hope she don't throw that at the cops.
