I love the perspective and composition on this one Andrea pretty good you'v got the bike at the right place, taken with the right perspective, all in all a pretty good shot, there;s some barrel distortion but easily corrected in post . I just have two minor observations here :-
1) The sky towards the end is blown out since the camera exposed for the (in comparison) darker area between the buildings, usually when you have such two contrasting light conditions you want to try and expose for the brighter area, underexposed can always be fixed in post processing but overexposed highlights are difficult to correct
2) The color saturation is a bit heavy for me i would tone it down a bit.
Have uploaded a mod with the saturation reduced a bit, and i have tried to bring out more detail on the pavement, i think this would also make a nice mono so have done one and uploaded as well.
Hope this helps
Thank you, Matt!
And thank you again, Prabh. This is very helpful critiquing. I like your modifications, too! It is amazing me how strangers are so keen to volunteer their time to help others.
I am going to have to learn how to cope with different exposures, though!
Cheers Andrea we are all here to help....i learned most of what i know from the Critique Gallery, Critique team and other people who contribute their time and effort on here
I was looking at your shot again and felt that there is another alternative composition here by offering a tighter crop of the pic, have loaded another mod ....hope it conveys the point...
I like this picture too.
I've done another mod based on Prabh's.
Well seen and composed, but the sky is blown and that is a pity. A bit more tone in that area and you have a nice shot. May be a little over saturated but the warm stone colour fits.
Another excellent shot of another Italian alleyway!
The bike and that bit of damage to the wall above it make the shot for me.
As has been said, the sky's blown to allow the rest of the image to be correctly exposed, which is a shame but difficult, sometimes impossible, to avoid.
I'm wondering if a little fill in flash might have helped here?
thank you all, again, for critiqung and kind comments. am taking it all in and will play with the image again soon.
Ian, like your mod, too. nice touch reintroducing the street sign!!! otherwise, i'd have to find a new name for it...!
