I think if you're going to shoot from this angle, you need to get some kind of symmetry to make the shot work

Cheers Ade, but it works fine for me as it is, I didn't want it straight on, thanks for the comment. Smile

fair enough Wink

doesn't really work as is, just a gaping imbalance between the left and right in the foreground. the right side has a decorative pew end right on the edge of the frame, whereas the left has one 1/3 of the way into the shot. it gives a feeling of accidental imbalance.

Now if you'd got right up to the left and used that as a lead line, it'd work - so the right would be small to the eye. But as it is, they're both pretty similarly sized but not balanced - hence it not looking "right".

but if that's how you wanted it, then well done

Yep, not saying you're wrong but I decided not to go for the obvious "follow on like sheep" composition, and people will either like or not, as a first attempt at interior shooting I thought it was worth an upload, good of you to take the time to crit & your comment is welcome Smile

16 Jan 2009 10:32PM
no probs - thought I'd just expand a little as I was just "passing though" before Smile

not really got any examples of the "useing one side as a lead" in a church, but it's a bit like using a fence in a landscape, just have it leading from one corner into the shot

just uploaded a more central comp Ade and I can see what you mean, but to be honest I prefer the off centre one, but it's all subjective at the end of the day Wink

Looks good to me Tony.

ade_mcfade 12 15.2k 216 England
17 Jan 2009 12:21AM
it's the imbalance of the pew ends that's not working for me, rather than the centrality of the aisle - the left and right have different optical "weight" as a result, the right looks higher than the left, it loks heavier than the left, it looks nearer than the left - that kind of thing.

it's something to bear in mind when looking through the viewfinder next time you're in a church Smile

nice one, did you get your cuppa at the church, do they still leave the tray with the kettle and the tea there for you to have a nice hot cuppa...

Hi Tony
Your creativity impresses very much.
Excellent performance in your new area of photography.

A cracking image, Tony, all the verticals are vertical, not leaning as can easily happen! It doesn't bother me that you've taken it slightly off centre, it works for me.
Like the colour version best.

For a first Tony you have done a cracking job, love the deep colours, can see what Ade means but its your shot and if your happy, its all the matters.
