Boy, these must really be bad. 81 views and not a soul to give any C&C even to say they're not right for this forum.
Are you Kidding ?? :wow
I just saw this for the 1st time and been staring at the 1st one ever since
I'm trying to think of what I can come up with that even comes close.
Hardly. Weekends are slow on Dgrin--don't fret.
They're both very good shots. I prefer the first. I think you should try to increase the contrast inside the buggy--I'd like to see the guy with the beard and the kid stand out more.
Thanks for the C&C Richard. I really appreciate it. I've upped the contrast inside the buggy. What do you think? More? It doesn't look as contrasty here as it does in LR2
The kid looks great, but I would still try to do more with the bearded guy.
I was one of the original 81 views, but I had put it in my head that we were holding off on comments until the exercise was over --don't know where I got that.
I really like the one with the kid in the buggie--I like the little kid looking directly at you from inside--this normally doesn't work, but it does here. I also like the older man, I find the cool aviator style sun glasses so out of place for this shot.
In the second shot, I'm surprised they are not all turning to look at you, the place looks so desolate. I guess they are used to being photographed, all but the little guy that is.
Who needs a crowded urban environment for great street shots!
Aren't those sunglasses a contrast to their way of life? The buggy shot was a real thrill to get. I was in my friend's car and shot through the window in a terrible rush.
The photos were taken at a wildlife conservation area just south east of me thus the desolate looking area.
Thanks for your feedback. I'd be interested to know if you prefer the cropped or the original frame of the boy glancing back.
With the sunglasses he reminds me of a member of ZZ top--probably not the look he was going for--not that he knows who they are.
I much prefer your cropped version.
What sadist thought up this exercise...oh, wait, I remember now.
I went out on Sunday planning on doing it, but I ran into a political demonstration against bullfighting, and thought, the hell if I'm only going to take 10 shots. You'll probably get to see some of those pics within the next week. In the meantime, I finally went out this morning, and these are my two favorites
sadist??? *perk!* :curtsey
I think you may have joined Dgrin just a little late, Dee. The Refinery used to be called The Whipping Post.
Rainbow: I like the composition of #1 a lot, but wish that you had caught her just a fraction of a second sooner. I know how that goes . What's especially nice is that there are several mannequins receding in the background. Maybe bump the contrast a hair? #2 is sort of interesting, but the reflections are not clear enough to be recognizable, so to me they distract.
Patti, Ben and Dee: Thanks.
