As regards your photo it doesn't appear to have a subject. You could have photographed the two workmen in their bright coats, and use a small DOF to show that. Most places, including big cities can be boring, what you need to do is walk around around until you see something interesting. Open your eyes and you will be surprised what you can see. Like people standing outside offices smoking, people sitting on benches watching others walking by, people running to catch a bus or birds picking up crumbs that people have dropped. There is lots going on, you just have to see it.
Thanks for your comments
the whole point of the picture is that it hasn't got a subject except two workmen mending the pavement and no one is interested in that if I cropped it to just the work men I would think it was a portrait
its just the way I see it
