self portait in practice for practice

By Baycan
since I ve started hypertropie there are big breaks in between my workout sets. so I decided why not practicising the stuff all by my self. so I set my camera on a tripod and have more than enough time to reposition the angle, tricky part was to get to the spot in 10 secs. and start doing the workout. I also have tighter crop I ll load to the mod.s
(donīt mind about my expression, I am not angry Grin)

I much prefer the closer crop. It resolves the missing foot problem thats in the original upload.

The slightly zoomed in focal length is working well to give a good proportion to your body.

The dark and low colour saturation effect work very well and suit this gym environment.

I was thinking about removing the person behind you, but in a way it works with leaving him where he is. I will try it just to compare.

Very well done.

In the mod, I noticed that the verticals are diverging as we look from bottom to top, - its just that the camera was tilted a little.
So in addition to removing the guy behind, I correct the perspective. Looks good either way.

good day willie, I will add the missing foot to the mods. and you will see why I cropped it out (well its pretty dispositioned and doesnt seem right) and that person to our left bothered me too at the first look but then I saw the expression of frustration on his face and tought it gives more to the frame as it was.
thank you for your appreciation.

I'll try to be constructive Smile The crop is better - I think a square or as it is (almost square crop) gives an intensity to the image adding to the mood. The person works for me as there is a juxtaposition between the 2 - black v white, expressions (as you mention), plus he is part of the setting and adds to the atmosphere and the story.
If I had to be picky - there're 2 spotlights in the way - one at the top of the frame and one to the left of your head. And yes, I suppose the verticals can do with being straightened.
Otherwise love the moodiness of the processing. A great image!
