Bit of street photography in London.. Thanks for looking
A great shot Jarod, you've captured a great mood here, lovely lighting and composition. You've done a good job to frame him against the darker background as the light is hitting him and mono suits the mood perfectly. I'm in two minds about the phone though, not sure if I like it or not. I might have tried to remove it to make it look like he's asleep or just briefly closing his eyes and chilling possibly. It's just a thought though but by no means does it spoil the image, it's still relaxed and an easy viewing with plenty to take in and study. Great work.
Ah, good idea with the phone - it does detract from the mood a little and I hadn't even thought of editing it out. I imagine it would improve the photo though. Thanks for all the advice, I am learning a lot here already!
I actually wouldn't change it although that's more personal preference. I like to keep street photography images unchanged like that to keep the true record of events and time period. The only thing I'd change here is to crop a little tighter to take out the shadow on the left, but apart from that it's a great image.
It would be a fascinating shot even without him - so much to see in the buildings - but the figure of course makes it, plus the fact that the dark background sets off his face and really makes him a focus in the shot
A ally nice photo well done.
