Covent Garden Morning

By maggieh
One of my London walkabouts earlier this year.

V1 Big Issue seller outside Covent Garden tube
station.

V2 This little boy wanted to give the "statue" some
money but he was very apprehensive and
kept looking back to his parents for
reassurance.

V3 I loved the way the ascending line of people
climbed the stairs totally ignoring the
musicians below.

Interesting shot . The motion blur of the people walking does not distract my focal point of the seller , i also like the clean shine from the brickwork , nice shot , i take it there was two other shots , shame i cant see them . well done

I can now see the other images great work , the kid and the statue very good , nice contrast ,would have liked a shallow depth of view to blur out the people at the rear , still a great shot , yes definitely apprehension there .cool

I liked the image in the thumb, tho when I opened it up i feel its a little soft. I'm not talking about the motion blur which I like - a lot. But it appears the image is suffering from a touch of camera shake.

I think you may have tried some aggresive sharpening to parts of the image as a few things don't quite look right. The "Garden" is sharper than the "Covent" Yet the "No Entry" below "covent" is much sharper than the "No Entry" below the "Garden"

Good set of street images - the statue and boy is a great capture.

Super set Magge, people watching again! I love the interaction in V2 and the spacing of the people going up the stairs in V3. Don't know if it was, but I get the feeling it was raining in V1. Perhaps it's the mono, which I think gives it good atmosphere.

Covent garden, a rich source of images Maggie. No doubt will see some of these in comps. Ron ( in Florida )
