New York City During the Holidays #2

New York City During the Holidays #2 by handlerstudio


V2 seems better for me.

The guy in the middle is still there with his expression (and under the superficial bridge made by the guitars; nice framing).
But V2 stands out because I get to notice the sat man with the yellow jacket on the right, dived in this thoughts.
Music doesn't seem to affect him... what does that may mean?

I also like the faces of the musicians better in V2. The the right Singer's face is seen clearer than V1 and we know he is singing. The Singer on the left seems as he participates in singing but he also looks as if he is checking if they need to get off(?) - quite appropriate for musicians on the go.

What I would have excluded from V2 is the left part that contains a headless person with a shopping bag. The vertical crop would have left just one wagon door visible but no harm, it actually increases the suspense... for the glance to the left, out of the frame ''let's keep an eye .... if the conductor's coming?''


Ian the Potter

Ian the Potter by JordanJackson

I shall agree with Drummer above. I would crop just from the right though leaving a tiny part of the lapel of his jacket in the frame. I would also have asked him to exhale the smoke from his nose at the time I'd shoot him....he'd look mean and even more mysterious I think.

Not that it is a bad portrait, on the contrary; therefore I'll cast a vote.

Casting your first vote, excellent candid and black and white treatment, bravo.


Lou by markst33


Excellent for a first attempt. Dudler is in his element, good advice.

My issue has to do with the styling and the balance of the picture; I shall start from the far end part. The leopard stilettos. They not only seem bright, or too bright to be honest compared to the dark background but they also introduce a colour too far and too deep in the picture which fails to be in accordance with anything else on the foreground where the face is, hence it distracts from the face. Would a yellow rose help? I doubt it, as red is the colour mostly associated with love and femininity. Red shoes would balance this red symphony (and they have their own implying meaning) while black shoes would do even more good, blending with the background and the underwear, while allowing the viewer to focus on the red colour and her superbly lit face. Ermmm, lipsticks is not my forte, lol.

Bravo Abby, you have balanced the darkness and the light in a lovely way. It does look bright as the fire!

White Knight

White Knight by ChrisBanks

It is a very good observation. An elevated point of view can reap triumphs! The inclusion of the person convinces us of the space true dimensions, well done.
I like that you have decided to present this in black and white,
but I think the effect would have been stronger if a black dressed man was walking towards the left as if attacking the white knight.


Ballet Pose 2

Ballet Pose 2 by SteveBaz

What an elegant pose, from an athletic body, nicely presented in Black and white.

I would commit a horizontal crop that eliminates the top 3 window panels, as light causes distraction from the main subject. As I was deducting them from the image I noticed that there is a slight leaning to the left, so I would adjust it to the level.


The metro..(shoot on film)

The metro..(shoot on film) by PaulPhotography

Love it!

I think you can crop the Ikea advert on the top part and have a square frame that starts on top at the height of the destination sign and crops a bit of the pink feature on the right bottom corner.


Checking the flowers !

Checking the flowers ! by salopian

Hi, it looks good and it is well combined with the portrait of your late wife.

I like the slight asymmetric placing of the portrait inside the mirror, despite the fact that the top part of the painting, where the face is, it is dark and from far away this looks as a weak pint of the picture. Probably , if the weather and house orientation to the sun's movement permitted you could take the picture when the opposite wall , rather than the wall we face now, is lit.

Another two notable modifications I would suggest is the withdrawal of the item which casts a shadow on the bottom right corner and a slightly trimming on the bottom, horizontally so as the door panerl disappears from the frame altogether.

The flowers are Beautifully arranged and I can sense this is a shot taken with lots of affection. Bravo.

The Sheep cloud & Sheep bell....

The Sheep cloud & Sheep bell.... by SvetAriadne

hello Svetlana.

I have not gone into the details of your camera, but as I have noticed on your portfolio, all the frames you have shot are horizontal. I think the subject you decided to shoot seems to be fitting better into a different framing or orientation, to my humble opinion. My modification has produced something that resembles a square but your real subjects, the sheep, the bell and the cloud could fit as well in a vertical framing.

Therefore I would suggest you to be daring with the way you hold your camera and compose your images. A new world waiting to be found and photographed awaits. Leap into the adventure!

Impressive shooting angle and result. Bravo.
May I suggest you crop the trees on the left corner?
Let the horse and the sky do their magic alone.

I love the pose the expression and the colours!




Camper by shadow_photo


I like what you have shot; for a moment it looked like being shot with a toy lens.

I do not know how much empty space was on the left of the frame but I would suggest you

to crop the frame so as the car on the right and the big lamp-post are not parts of the picture.

kind regards,

it looks as peaceful as on a Sunday morning Smile

May I suggest to crop the bottom part a bit and exclude the metal cap of the draining water facility there?

Stern observers

Stern observers by CPO1944

Hello Jack.

It is a shot of an unidentifiable vessel, no markings with serial numbers, no flag (in the picture). I think your zoom is quite good for showing the boat, I could not see the crew clearly so, since they did not fire back at you, I take this could be marked as you scoring one Wink
I have reframed this in a way to follow the contour of the vessel, like a dagger in the water; excess sky and water have been reduced to an acceptable minimum I hope.
I applaud the timing which froze teh action and I like the choice of aperture used, as it gives a hint of background, in a nice position. These two round white objects on the right remind me of water tanks but they might not be actually, good thing is that the remind something of a naval operation.
As for the lack of flag, I hope they were not Pirates. I think all sailing boats have to identify themselves in the sea, isn't that obligatory for everybody?
