Typical airport arrival hall scene, but could it be improved by reversing the image so that the person goes left to right?

I have tried it the other way and prefer as is.
Great image, I like this a lot.

Welcome to EPZ Derek.

Its a well observed image with good timong. The toning suits it also.

Flipping it wont make a difference, but I think I can guess why you suggest this. Images such as this, in general look better when the person is walking into the frame rather than out, howere flipping just makes the person walk out of the frame on the other side.

The image "reads" left to right anyway due to the print on the wall, and in general it works as the man in the print is walking in the opposite direction to the person walking.

What it does need however is a slight clockwise tilt to level it, which Ive uploaded in a mod, - scroll p to the modifications tab and click.


Enjoy the site,



regards

Many thanks Folks for the swift response. I agree with the need for a tilt and in fact when I mounted the print I did correct it. Cheers DeeGee

I agree it works just as well this way round, but I would like to see a version with the passer-by sharper. Leaning back to mirror the figure in the picture would be just too much to ask for!

A rather inspirational and certainly cleverly worked image, which really appeals to me.

I'd leave it alone but then my views on these things are well documented!

I think the motion blur is spot on and don't think it needs flipping.

I don't think it needs as much (if any) toning, or the border though.. The only other thing I'd change would be just a little more room on the LHS of the image - there's a lot of symmetry in the image and it'd be nice if either edge was symmetrical As well.

Welcome to EPZ from me too Derek.
I think it can only be improved by taking the picture with both walkers entering the frame rather than walking out of it. You have two problems then of course, the guy to the rear is on a canvas (whoever did that needed also to have the man walking in for you to achive this, but we are not here to critique his picture) and cannot be changed although you could have slid down to the right until he was and secondly one blurred figure and one sharp, although that possible will be OK.
