I don't care too much about the Merc losing part of its trunk, because the rest of the composition is very strong! I like the different levels created by the telephoto. Funny that between the businessman and the city, there is a farmer with his sheep! Great jobb, Per!
I like this one a lot. It's not everyday one sees a business man up on a hill with his cell phone and expensive car doing business. I like it too because he is alone with no other people to 'clutter' the scene. One small nit-pik though; the lamp post is tilted.
As for not being able to get the whole of the car in the composition; when this happens sometimes it's a good idea to crop even more of the car off to balance it out. I did a workshop to explain my suggestions. The percentage of grain looks good here Per.

I don't agree with Diana, or only partially: the lamppost is tilted a bit, indeed, but the buildings in the back are level. So, it is the lamppost that is mounted crooked, not the picture. A good way of prooving this is looking at both men: they stand upright and are not tilted.
Nice PP work as usual, Per. I think Diana is right about cropping more from the left, but I would do it less strict than she did, just on the half of the back wheel or so. TFS.

You addict ;)
Don't close the series, it such a nice observation of life! The fact that you've shot 'Urban Landscapes' in different locations says how universal it is.
Keep it up, it's nice!
By the way - the man with the sheep is a great detail ;) I just saw it now

Like the concept here Per,the modern buisinesman in focus with the sheep herd in the background and a country view ..the contradiction here captured is very good ,however about the technincal quality could be better..due to the telezoom I think , it created a reddish hollow around the merc....

Well, I am glad that we can't trust you when it comes to saying that a series is going to end!!
I didn't notice that a little of the car wasn't showing, because I've only looked at the man and the fantastic background behind him, that by itself makes the photo work!!

Great background scenery here Per, and an interesting foreground too. Such a difference between the modern businessman with his cell phone and the shepherd in the field with his sheep. The green shades of the hills is beautiful. Very good capture.
