Quietly Caught Bathing

By Disee      
This is "Pensive's" Father, now his turn to wash himself from same tap. Composition is not perfect but I wanted to show his shoes etc in the corner. The struts hold a large water tank.
Your comments and modifications will be appreciated.
Why can't I find the option buttons anymore?

You have captured the man well, Dinah, going about his business. However if you had not told me he is having a wash I am not sure I would have worked it out. I think it needs more to tell us the story. Perhaps having the shoes a bit more in the frame would help.

But it's a well taken shot.

Best wishes

I agree that the story is not really capured to the extent where i understand what is going on.
As to the buttons - could your e2 membership have ran out - it is not possible to view large and that is often a sign Smile

Ive added a mod that you might consider.

Theres a lot going on around this man, - and as you say, com positionally its not great. The mod moves the shoes further back into the shot, and removes the struts to allow better focus on the man (I know Ive probably caused the water tank to collapse!)

In addition, Ive sharpened, cropped tighter, and increased contrast a little.

What would be nice would be to have some water drops falling from his hands or face to make it work better.

Which options buttons do you mean, - and from a previous shout you mentioned you cant find the C and M buttons, - can you explain more so we can help?

I hope you find this useful,


Regards

I like all the mods you have done, thank you very much and have since played more with photoshop (all very new to me) The C and M button I meant was requesting critiques and modification but I also found my way around that as well, so thanks again for all help.
