Tired Egg Seller
I see this girls everyday on my walk to work. Today either tiredness or the boringness of what she was reading overcame her.

That does look like egg-austing work!  Sorry.  Great place to sell with a nice rooted tree next to her to do eggactly what she is doing...sorry again.   Great depiction of the area and their colorful clothes...especially with the smiley skirt.  My thought on this would be maybe to crop this so you lose about 20-25% on top, about 20-25% on the right and a smudge on the left.   I would like to see her brought in closer and see all the details.   Just my 2 cents.  I hope you are enjoying your stay.  

Thanks for ypour comments Richard. I can see your point about the crop, in fact my first version of this was in portrait format and zoomed in on the girl a bit more. When I saw this composition I liked it better because it shows the whole tree trunk with the roots structure and the bucket on the right.

I like working in Lusaka. The IT in the office is a mess, mainly because of lack of funds, but small improvements can be made by changing some ways of working. I am thinking of ways to raise a bit of money and might come back to badger TPN members...

I see what you were trying for keeping the whole root system in, but I think I agree with Richard's cropping suggestion. Now, his puns are a different matter all together!
