Interestingly enough, aside from the shadow patterns, several other items surface. The structure isn't rusted, but paint is cracking (right lower quadrant). Then the state of the window speaks quite well for the missing rust. Also is it spider webs I detect? More interesting though, it is the reflected construction engine (?) and background that add a poignant touch to the image. regards,
Graphically, your first shot is superb. I can't tell if you have added the noise on purpose or left it as shot (215mm at f/4.6). Regardless, I think it works quite well because a usually cold architectural shot is warmed up and becomes dramatic (more like a painting) and consequently a pleasure to the eye. Love number two as well. Regards,
Lovely shot because the main subject's body language speaks as if we had heard the joke ourselves. Now, the person to the left saw the camera, but adds nothing to the scene. He should be cropped out at the soldier's elbow. To the right, there is a nurse laughing and a mass of crossed legs that seem to be part of the joke. Unfortunately, we see too little to add to the image. In conclusion, had you framed slightly more to the right, you would have caught the entire scene. You'll see, there is an invisible diagonal line running from the soldier's cap to the people slight below. It focusses the scene's interest in a rather nice way. Keep on looking at the world around you, you have a great eye for subjects. Regards,
Was there recently with similar questions on how to shoot the massive entrance. I ended up not taking the shot, my wide angle wasn't suitable. So thank you for your attempt. Your 12mm does the job, but it also reveals how difficult it is to shoot all these convergent lines. In addition, there is such a disparity between the lighter left and heavy right side. Add to this the glass reflections on the right. The young people clad in white, bottom right segment, create a distracting point because they are reflected in the window next to them. Cropping just above their heads seems to bring back some semblance of equilibrium to the whole as the wide grey band, now being cut by the bottom of the image, becomes less oppressive. You could also eliminate the skylight above. Altogether, I'd say it is the people who make the scene interesting, so placing less accent on the architecture might solve some of the problems (perhaps, shooting from the ground, as low as possible from the perspective of the young people might bring interesting results).
Well captured near grotesque image as the mannequin's articulation looks like an abdominal disease, and perhaps a remark on society's obsession with form. If I may suggest, a crop at mid-point on the neck to avoid to avoid the concentration of light above, thus making the mid-rib even more spectacular. Regards,
Your subjects are well captured, without a doubt, but I find the stone arches a bit overwhelming. An easy solution comes to mind: Reducing the foreground to a cm or more places the central focus resolutely on the subjects and lessens the heaviness of the arches. Try it! Regards,
Beyond the rather enticing contrast between subject and stone, this is a very effective shot in that the various shadows, the one to the left in particular, create a dynamic interaction giving vibrancy to the image. First, the size and important angle of the left-shadow impose themselves as against the subject whose position and pose to the right make her appear as being the observer-victim of a sunshine-shadow combat, thus she is seen as the subject-object of the image (her own shadow clearly points to this). Overall, the combination of vertical and horizontal geometric lines seem to match the subject's hands and feet effective symmetry. Naturally, this is street photography and my commentary may not match the original intention, yet the resulting image calls for a rather pleasant analysis. Isn't this one of the pleasures of photography! Regards,
I wouldn't touch it all. The particularity of your shot is the unexpected scene whereby the woman's face in the middle tends to substitute itself with the inflatable doll's. Furthermore, your fuzzy background adds to the oddity of the scene. The same can be said of the multiple legs seen below. No, this is worthy street photography, more so because the emphasis is on the rapidy of its capture. The subject's features amply speak of the moment. Very nice,
