Fun, filling and bored

By oldgreyheron      
Another observation of people enjoying the spring weather and the local produce on Redcar front. I liked the different attitudes and of course wanted to try and compete with George's smiling female faces... lol.

Beautifully balanced - two older static figures, two young dynamic figures. Love the range of expressions.
As you have found, public seats are a very good target.
Now which bits shall I suggest you manipulate... ?
Only joking!

Seems to have been fine weather for them (and you). There's more sun bouncing off that car than I've seen all day!

Just an idle thought - is this the real final frame in your Fisherman series?

Well observed - well done!

Ah well Bill that remains to be seen - I had a very enjoyable hour on that day and took around 140 shots (of which at least a third were of the turnstones). Maybe one or two more might creep in - it depends on new opportunities as they crop up! M.

Hi Mike
Nice image. I'm glad that my works inspire you to like portraiture more.
Thanks for your attention to my humble efforts of taking pictures of smiling ladies.
Now, to your question: " For me there is something a little wrong with the colour - there are greenish patches in her face - I wonder if you have been playing with saturation or something else"
Mike, I take pictures where my characters are, not where the lighting conditions are ideal, which means that I have a chance to take a photo only once. At times I don't guess the right camera settings for the shot.
Then in the software try to save the situation. It doesn't always end well :-(
Cheers
