    Very good shot, but why B/W? No green? It's St. Patrick day!

    Charles Rushton said (18 Nov 2011):

    Black and white places more emphasis on the geometry of the image.

    Got it. It is indeed a very good composition relying on the relation between parts.

    Charles Rushton said (20 Nov 2011):

    This is first of all a formal study. The geometry is very important in making the photograph work as a composition. There are several diagonals starting with the back of the woman (closest to the camera) in the leather coat, then the two arms with coupled hands, the flag over the shoulder (two more diagonals suggesting a triangle), the raised hand, etc. Then there are the retangular screen with the round banjo playing against the circles of the hat and the clock. Next, the image is about subject matter, capturing a moment.

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. I wouldn't mind reading a good book about composition/formal study. Any suggestion?
