From Generation to Generation

By patrickfarrell
This is my Grandad and me. I just handed my folio in for assesment at school last friday, and this was one of my potential solutions. this is a smaller version as the original is as a large A3 format. alot of the detail is lost but i have placed both photos seperately on ephotozine. COmments welcome i really need feedback so that i can improve and continue with the thinking process. the eyes were the only thing i modified in this shot.

I like what you have done. I like the way the you are looking directly at the camera while Grandad is focussing somewhere else.

Perhaps there's a bit too much space to the left of your face.

I like this one. The composition is very good and the gesture of both subjects fits the theme perfectly, I agree with mrcal about the space, but besides that is a well presented, well lit, well worked and most important an interesting and meaningful image.

I saw this picture a while ago and neglected to comment, but I found it again and I still love it.
