Hi Pradyoth, this is well executed concept with the generational contrast coming through nicely. Technically though this could have been better like Frank says above a little fill in flash would have helped here a bit, personally i dont mind the pan over the kids head its an essential part of the image. I have uploaded two mods the first one is been lightened by adding some fill in light to lighten the old ladies face and bring forth some detail, i have also cloned out some distractions from the RHS side of the frame. Mod 2 is a mono conversion as an alternative treatment, though it looks quite good in color too.

Cheers and hope this helps

Thanks to Focus man and devlin Sir, I will alway remember your advice. Actually , I wanted to keep the light and shade as it is to emphasize the enveronment of my scene. The shades on the face of the old lady, as for her days that passed quitely in poverty and blank future.

Its a very nice candid Pradyoth, and does capture the essence of human suffering, and the disparity between the fortunate and unfortunate.

I do like the interplay of shadows and light, however the brighter areas where the sun is shining are a little dull, making the overall image a little flat and lacking in contrast, and a small adjustment in lifting the bright areas makes a difference, as in the mod.



Hope you find this helpful,


Regards


Willie

i love the juxtaposition of the two subjects and small technical issues apart, which has been stated above, its a super image particualry with the character in the elderly subject.

having grabbed that shot with which i would have been delighted, i would have been quick to try and manipulate the second shot to bring the child in nearer to try and avoid the distracting items behind its head and move slightly to the left attempting a clean uncluttered composition. probably it wouldnt have worked losing the spontinaity but a scene like this deserves a whole series of images and individual studies too.

well seen
