A few photos from the streets.
Some I see as quite sharp,ohers not so much.
If there is doubt regarding sharpness of the shots I see as sharp then please tell me and in that case I have to go for eye checkup and gear check up too.
Woor did mention that he finds the photos unsharp in the other post.
This time uploaded through Flickr.

#5 goat, god & man is a great shot.

Technically, the exposure is pretty much nailed, and you captured a sharp image with natural colours.

The composition is appealing with lots of interesting details. The man's bags, the photographer, and the goat all face towards the man which leads the viewer's eye directly to him. All this attention (including your camera) has created lots of tension in his posture which can sometimes look unnatural as he is acutely aware of your presence, but it works well here within the context of those other elements in the frame.

The fact that the goat looks to be happily sat on a sacrificial stone in front of an altar and haunted-looking tree is a bonus.

It's a pity the photographer is positioned too close to the left side of the frame and it unbalances the composition, but I'm I'd also be interest to see the corresponding shot he made.

Thank you for being lenient Woor. It is a relief that there is no issue with the gear :)

kimchi, nice to know that you liked #5. It is a favourite of mine too. But had to include the photographer in the frame to make a contrast with the rest of the subject to try and bring out the laid back world that is seen.
Some how I like #6 too. The setting sun casts a warmth on the 3 friends who too are moving towards the horizon. The central figure, it appears, having a puff of local cheroot before sharing some thing which has caught the attention of other 2.

Oh boy....the meat market shots in your Flickr was a bit too good for my palate :oops:
