The second line of the initial post of that thread reads: "Then creating a small thumbnail with a link to the big image is what You should do."

Nope, you should provide a LINK to the larger photo, not post the photo itself;) I have a larger screen, and open shouldn't have to scroll to see the entire image,

It's a good capture IMO. You got her nicely within the DOF.

The colour and contract is nice too.

I find myself with mixed feelings about this shot. Technically, I agree with Dan in that it has nice colour; I really like the overall tones, and I like the DOF that you achieved, but, compositionally it starts to fail for me. If it was just a picture of a woman walking her dog, then the woman with the coffee in front ruins it; also, I would have liked either more of the guy on the left by the bicycle, or none of him at all.

However, since it is supposed to be a "paparazzi" image, I think that you did capture that quick, intrusive, snapshot look that most of them have, but with better results than they generally obtain.

Overall, I'd have to say it was a successful image.

I am a Lucy Liu fan, my first thought was...that isn't Lucy Liu...wait a minute, that's her in the background, slightly OOF and obscured by the OOF women in the foreground.

Maybe there's a method to Ms. Liu's madness in walking so close to people in front of her. So that any cad with a camera who wants to intrude on her private life won't get a very good shot, which is what we see here.

Good shot...too bad she is not the center of focus.
