The Easy Way to get about? Perhaps not.

By Smithy19
Taken at Whitby on a busy afternoon in August. The traffic along the street had ground to halt which contrasted with the advert on the front of the bus.

The slogan on the bus and that woman's face make the photograph for me!

You'd have fared a bit better where composition's concerned if you'd stood back a little (if you were able to, of course) and got the whole of the pick-up in the frame; you'd also have got all of the guy on the left and the top of the bus as well. As it is, it's all a bit crowded.

I fact, thinking about it, I might crop the whole of the top off to just above the 'easy way slogan. I think that that's the best part of the image.

Hope this helps.

Bren.

As a street capture I like this, it tells a story. Its funny or ironic without needing an explanation. I think the composition is ok for this type photo.
I'm not sure why the left hand side looks so light and over exposed and the right less so. You can get away with less technical perfection with this type of image but something is a bit wrong here. There is no data showing for the camera.
Hope some one can work it out.

Well spotted but needs a wider angle to tell the story. I know exactly where this is and more of the queue would tell the story better. Possibly a little sharpening needed.

An interesting humerous image. A little 'burning in' needed on LHS and a small anti-clockwise (See building on right) rotation to square it up. For some reason the monochrome enhances the story. Nice image.
