caisii, i think this had all the potential of being a super shot, provided it was composed well , as it stands right now the child is 1) too central to the image, 2) there are distractions on the side and in the background. Ideally i would suggest go down to the childs level from a point of view perspective, this would 1) allow you to capture the whole scene without cutting the kid off, 2) try and get her a bit off center 3) would allow more context to the shot by bringing in her surroundings in a more impactfull manner. I have done a mod in an attempt to improve the composition, basically by 1) cropping from the left to bring the child onto a third and creating a diagonal line of sight between her and the kid in the background 2) cloned off the two half cut off figures in the background. mod 2 is a mono conversion.
Cheers and i hope this helps
What he said! But still a great shot, nothing a bit of cropping can't sort out and superb dof.
Well done. This is India...Ant
I have just looked at the photo and it really is super and a thought provoking shot. Well done. Regards Sue
I have to agree with Sue, this certainly is very thought provoking, well captured.
I also agree with Prabh that some cropping would possibly blance the image a bit better. In the mod I have cropped some off the left, removed the legs in the background and re-sized the image. I then made a copy which I lightened and then merged with the original and erased all the lightened areas but the two children. I also sharpened with a High Pass filter and then selectively re-sharpened the little lad.
We all look at photos with different eyes. I believe that you image contains a good simple statement. The youg girl with the baby is the only part of the image that to me is important. The eyes, face and body shape to me say it all. If the old saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" is right then surely this image proves it. I have put up a mod. I cropped out everything apart from the girl and baby. I then brought up her eyes a little and finally I sharpend the image. This is just my opinion, I think that you have a good eye for this type of photography.
I hope that this helps.
Potentially a great shot. I think a wider pic showing the girl in her entirety and the street would have been great contextual/environmental portrait, that would have meant getting lower too. Or you could have concentrated on just the girl as in Michael's mod.
I don't have a problem with her being central in a wider shot, but here it doesn't quite work, and on balance, I think a little off-centre is better. Exposure looks fine.
This image is very powerful, it brought tears to my eyes! I can't stop looking at it.
We are all different aren't we?
I'd go with Prabh when he says that getting down to the child's level would have improved the composition and would probably have brought the people in the background fully into the shot.
My views on the so-called RoT are well documented so the centrality doesn't bother me.
The crops work but personally, I'd leave it.
Very moving image - well done
