    Nice portrait. I think the sleepy dude, the brick wall and the bench are pleanty of story - I would crop the foliage out. But that's just one opinion (and I am most often wrong).

    With all due respect to Mr. Wollenhaupt's observation; I think, (from a compostitional viewpoint), that the aforementioned foliage does an excellent job of "balancing" this image. The "dragon" in Emanuela's title, me thinks, is implied by said foliage as teeth, the benches as lower teeth, the red brick wall as the inside of the dragons mouth...
    ...whew! that was exhausting!!
    I sure hope I'm right!!
    ...Emanuela---------HELP!! :)

    Suzette and Gigi! Thank you so much dear friends!!
    Jon, thanks! There was even more foliage in the original shot so some has been trimmed anyway. Not sure about removing it all, I love green....! :-)
    Daniel, I love your interpretation!! :-) But I admit that I have to thank cristina cause she came up with the title!! And I'm sure she thought of a big green dragon.... ;-)

    thanks sweet heart to mention my contribute (with the title only!) to your picture... well you know how much i love every single shot you do (your imagination is inspiring mine all the time!)... in this one for me you've got the perfect framing and saturation... no CROPPING, is needed at all (but this is only my point of view!)!!! this is another great picture darling! ;-)))
