    i love how the eye runs along that wall. it would have a complete new feel if you cropped off the tree at the left. more concentration on the persons.

  • Thanks for that suggestion, moyo. I opted to leave that part in to show more of the context, but you have a point there, I may try the cropped version out! :)
