This to me feels like one of those "almost" photos. I don't particularly care for the way the photographer shot this image. I don't quite understand why the only thing in focus in this image is the building and flag in the background. I completely understand that certain situations might be dull to photograph, believe me I have been there, but in this situation I see no value in the composition of this photo. It just bothers me. Anyone have any thoughts?
