What was the impact you wanted to create with this image? Was it the boy's excitement at being surrounded with cars? If so, I think the composition needs some tweaking - at the very least you should have switched things around a bit - I'm guessing this picture is composed of more than one shot pasted together, right? I'd at least make the picture of the boy horizontally mirrored - looking AT the car. Secondly, crop out his legs a bit as they seem to give the impression that he's levitating. Also, slightly blur the edges around the kid's face as the editing looks low-quality in that respect. This isn't helped by the fact that the lighting on the kid is reversed to what it should be given that huge see-through wall behind the car - visualise the light coming from that direction and you'll immediately realise that the shadows on the kids face cannot possibly be going in that direction. One final thing - even the scale seems a bit off - it looks like either the kid is too large next to the car or the car is a miniature version.
Hope this helps!
An attempt at something different but it immediatelly didn't look right. I think the image of the boy is too large and appears to be floating off the ground. He also doesn't really appear interested in the car.
Move him diagonally back so he's obscuring the yellow car, reduce his size so the scale looks right with his surroundings, flip him horizontally through 180 degrees so he's looking toward the front car and the light on his face looks correct considering the size of the window on the right, and create a subtle and consistent shadow to ground him into the scene.
Where was this taken if you don't mind me asking .... looks like a fab building
Welcome to EPZ. Not a bad first upload but as has been mentioned it is very unnatural. The lad looks particularly false and is looking out of the frame, which, compositionally makes him stand out immediately. Being on the RHS would at least make for a natural picture with the car swopped over to the LHS.
I like the corrected verticals and that circular section stanchion fits incely on a 'third'.
I would have been tempted to use a smaller aperture to ensure a nice DoF front to back.
Welcome. You did quite a decent job cutting out the boy. You can scale him using the edit>transform tool.
Agree with all of the above, and you need to sharpen re sized images before uploading.
Ive uploaded a mod based on the suggestion ti give you an idea.
That's a good mod and rather clever too ..... positioning the lad behind the lead car gives the image depth and solves your problem regarding his shadow and or reflection in the shiny floor. Sneaky
Thank You to all the critique`s, very valuable and constructive. I uploaded this image to get the comments I have received as I was having trouble with it, now you guys have given me the some wonderful instruction I can put to use. Thank You All.
I have been known to be sneaky!
