art n life: struggle for existence

By Sandipan
Title tells everything. the potter works hard to keep alive the art and earn money to get food. I try to capture his work,art along with his expression.

Its a very nice variation on the other shot. Mono works well.

Still a crop off the right can work to place the potter off centre.

Mod uploaded with minor tweaks as well as a crop.

Nice but my comments are as before. You have a series of highlights at the edge of the image and these should be burnt in or cropped as necessary. The actual potter is excellent.

This is a cleaner looking image as regards composition, after the crop.
Not all images need to stay with the same aspect ratio as taken, sometimes a less oblong, or even square, final image looks better.

Central composition is always a slight problem, at the least: one looks at it twice, to see if there's a reason.

Therefore, I always try to avoid it, if i can, and often this means cropping.

I'm trying to convey that it is OK to use central composition, but I feel it should never be by accident - the result of a very positive choice. Quite often, with low light or action, I compose centrally in the viewfinder for speed, knowing I will crop later.
