Incredibly nice, all in light, capture of the geometric patterns of this staircase. I appreciate the decision to show the person descending at that very instant because the final composition is rather dramatic in that the staircase animated by the convergent lines looks as if it is about to swallow the person. That's what I see in your incredible shot at the Tate. Regards,
Quick snap, yes, but what a plendid result! You have captured the dog's determination, or perhaps indiference to danger while crossing the street. The combined motion of the car and dog is perfectly shown at 1/30sec, yet it is the seemingly still dog's head that captures the drama of this impetuous crossing. Nicely done. Regards,
Well done! Why? Because your colorful capture, while focused on the tram and its singular appearance, maintains all the elements of a live shot. There is movement everywhere, people about to board the tram, people on the sidewalk, a car on the street. Even looking beyond, within the white space opened by the street in the background, we have an animated view of daily life in Honk Kong. Great stuff. Regards,
Rather inspiring photograph because of the subject matter. I like the wetness of the stones, the tree reflections, the various geometric lines. Yet, in my opinion, we have more than one shot here, depending on how you crop: below or above the tree reflections. In either way, the central focus places the accent on the tree, but the shot with the reflection below places the accent on the geometric pattern of the paving stones and the parallel lines that emerge from it. With the reflection below, the accent is placed on the white parallel lines and the colour of the stone. A second reflection occupies the quadrant below. Either way, you have a great eye for geometric patterns and the ensuing natural images that appeared to be stamped in it. Lovely! Regards,
This is an interesting shot, certainly from the point of view of its composition. A seated woman may not be original, but something else happens here as the centre of attention shifts along the image's several axes. The model's head sets the one direction that eventually connects with the hand and feet mass while her knees emerge in another and connect with the chair's roundness. Yes, it is a chair set in a corner, if you want to be realistic about it, but, and this is the interesting part, the whole is metamorphosed into corolla, pistils, and stigma (all female parts, of course). The model's expressiveness becoming the central point acting as the motor of this transfiguration. In short, and rather fundamentally, your shot reminds me of a painting by modigliani, Portrait of Paulette Jourdain. Here is the link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Amedeo_Modigliani_033.jpg
Nicely caught! I just love your composition mixing all kinds of geometric lines that set the ensemble against the water and sky in the background. Furthermore, another rather interesting element appears to be the background light that falls through the openings which, oddly enough, adds motion to the structure. Impressive! Regards,
Rather excellent shot because you have managed to do a number of things, the sunset, of course, but you have kept the visibility of the background, which appears in sharp contrast with the stairway's vertical lines. Unless I can't see more on my monitor, there is an awful lot of darkness at the forefront. The bright stop does not help either. If this were to be taken again, I think the camera should be aimed a little higher to eliminate some of this background and show a bit more of what appears to be another landing at the top. Regardless, I think the geometry of this shot rather good. One can even play with its several triangular shapes. Nice! Regards,
Your line of palm trees and the linear path contribute very nicely to the depth of your composition. The subjects at the front are indeed indispensable to convey a story. Yet, I must be missing the point. Are they looking at something, I can't tell because they are "hidden." Is the gem this walkway that seems to hide the subjects. No, this can't be! Yet the colour, the absolute sharpness of your shot speak of a rather good shot. Regards,
This is an excellent shot of your subject because of the intensity of her gaze. Would you consider cropping just below the cartilage point. As it stands, the horizontal line at the very bottom distracts, whereas cropping as suggested reinforces the direction of her gaze with the slight angle so produced. Otherwise, I can only compliment you on this very forceful portrait. Regards,
At first sight, one would say what's the interest! Well no, this masterful because it is all about light, the way it etches the background, then illuminates the tiniest leaves. The dark trunk at the front is just right, acting as a curtain to reveal the scene. This is not to mention the perpendicular lines that give depth to your composition. Very well done. Regards,
Well done! Your shot justifies the often mentioned triangular composition. Here, it doesn't matter if the white dog is right in the middle of your comp. The eye is taken to the second dog, and then to the master in the background. The walkway neatly frames the sot. I wont mention the B & W treatment, it is all full of interest. Regards,
What an interesting compilation. The subject vanishes, yet the right hand remains on the job. It is as if you wanted to say, metaphorically that is, I do not want to clean windows, perhaps more so as a bit of foliage is reflected on the subject's back. All this in the enclosed setting offered by the bricks. Nice work,
I'm not bothered by the lack of definition in the right upper corner, at all. Overall, I think this photo offers a number of possibilities, and I'd go along with Phil's view. As I see it, it the bottom of the staircase offers a dynamic first focal point that takes the eye right up to its point of arrival. Thus a crop, enough to show the bottom of the lift would make one interesting shot. The other one would work around the vertical parallel lines. But to give it life, it would be necessary to let the lift come down a bit more in order to see the standing figure. You do have a great eye for architectural shapes, working on focal points is always a challenge. All the best,
Well done! We do indeed obtain a multitude of arches as the eye is literally invited to step into this admirable entrance. If it were possible, I'd suggest showing a little more detail above the inside window, and eliminating the curious bright spot to the left of it. On the whole, however, this is the kind of shot one would want to discover everyday. Bravo!
