In Sync!

By iMation  
This was taken in Dubai at one of the malls,

I found this fascinating but wanted to capture enough to make a good picture.

I have edited the support stems out but there is a so much noise in the shot.

Thanks you for any C & C

A nice image, love the synchronicity of the image!!! Indeed it is rather noisy, so i have uploaded a MOD for you. I use PSE and it gives you the option to reduce noise!!! So i have done so for you and increased the sharpness!

I hope this is ok x x

Lianna, thank you it looks so much better Grin

Frank, in one of the Dubai malls, there are water features with loads of these statues attached! i didn't want to use flash due to the reflection on the water/statue itself, in hindsight, flash may have been better with a low ISO or higher F.

Thanks for your comments

What a great statue. I think though once you have removed the support stems you have changed the focus of your picture from a record shot into something more akin to digital art. Having made that step I think you need to follow it through. The noise and the lack of over all sharpeness are then irrelevant as blur become the most obvious tool to employ. I think you need to emphasize movement with the blur. I would also give the first diver something to dive into and agree that three is better compositionally than four. I would also boost the colour and contrast for greater impact - as demonstrated in my mod (having relooked at it - I might also put some additional room above the top diver). Steve.
