Hi Layton,

As you know I'm a big fan of your work (as I love bands, concerts, pop culture etc) and I am always forthright in pointing out the things that niggle me.

This is another example of a great shot with again just one shortfall. The lighting once again is sheer pefection, something you really strive for but in concentrating so much on your lighting your composition suffers. The horizon cuts right through the neck of 2 of the band members, metaphorically decapitating them! Very painful indeed! I'm not too sure how important the waves are to you but lowering the camera say 6-8 inches would have dropped the horizon below their shoulders. Again just a small point but I feel an important one.

The expression and pose on the guy in the middle is just superb! I can imagine his girlfriend looking like a supermodel or something!

Andrew.

Wow - HC - who would have thougth it!! lol

Thanks for all the feedback, greatly appreciated.

@ Andrew - your observations are spot on - I did make a concious decision to see more of the horizon line rather than hide it behind the subjects, I was attempting to bring the boys more into context of there surroundings- but as your rightly point out I've also decapitated them. If you knew them maybe it wouldnt be a bad thing!! lol.

I have to laugh, because I took a picture of one of the Anthony Gormley Statues on Crosby beach (near Liverpool) and I placed the horizon right through his neck, it got 33 votes and is still my most successful image on ePHOTOzine! See Link! link
