    Well done cookie jar!!. It is a great photon you were very alert to see it as a "strange" shot especially when I guess there were a few "arty" things around. Many congrats!

    Thanks everyone. I couldn't believe my luck when Debris and my paths crossed at the start of this challenge. The yellow is the colour of the wall in the background and I wasn't unhappy with the way it almost matched their shirt. The pronoun 'they' is this individuals' preferred form of address by they way. Only had the phone on me at the time. (I rather liked the skateboarding squirrel in the background.)

    My #1! Love the coordination of the background and the shirt.
Nice portrait.

    Definitely not a look I'm going for, but it certainly is unique. It's a great photo - lots of colour and detail. Could have removed the skateboard in back, but a minor distraction.

    Great shot, bold and powerful, a definite favourite.
I'm in two minds about the yellow background - part of me wonders if a darker background would have helped - as well as cloning out the item on the wall?

    Well done portrait of a segment of modern youth. Well focused and composed. Why the yellow background? IMHO it distracts a bit from the person. Nonetheless, high in my favs.

    Strange? Beautiful? As stated earlier, my sister is an artist and their urge to express themselves is something a simple person like me cannot understand. I don't understand, but but I admire it and appreciate it.

    Yep, strange, but great image.

    I found your notes confusing in the transition from 'the artists name is', to 'they' and also that the artists name is 'Debris Facility' but that the exhibition is by Sally Walker.
I googled Debris Facility and found the same sort of confusion. Anyway, I found out enough to satisfy me that you photographed an actual person and not a photo of him, so go to the top of the class.
Strange indeed, although I suppose a lot of art is.
