You’re Nicked! – by Keith Mulliner

This week’s Picture of the Week is Keith Mulliner’s delightful photograph of a rogue being caught in the act. I like the way Keith has caught the action and the expression of the rogue. The environment matches the characters as does the black and white conversion.
Keith’s picture was part of our entry for our competition with Alsager. Images that scored over 16 can he seen here
