Again, another shot that allegedly breaks the rules of composition...Never place your subject in the middle of the frame. I have to ask you. Why not?
Does this composition work for you? Would it have worked if they were over to the left....or right. Higher or lower? Probably. Obviously would have looked completely different but what's wrong with any of it? Sod the rules....

This was taken with my Nikon D5000 and 35mm lens open at full aperture ISO 1600.
One of the few nights it stopped raining and it gave me a chance to go walkabout without getting soaked!!
I know that the D5000 is classed as an 'entry level' but, to be honest, I find that quite insulting. I know a few photographers who perhaps have an 'entry level eye' but in terms of technology most entry level cameras sport a shed load of quality in terms of image processing and features.
I know it's a marketing ploy by all the companies but it's a shame that the newbies to the game fall for it and part up with more cash than they need to in the belief they will automatically take better pictures.

I saw this down in Rochester not so long ago. I think it was during the Dickens Festival. I was struck by the contrast between the modern dress of the boy and the olden day dress of the father.

This was taken in the Chinatown area of NY. It felt very 'rough' and for me, coming from SE London, that's saying something! We didn't hang around here too long.
