I like the reflection and how you placed the 3 men at the corner and the white patch on the pond makes a good background for them.Although they are captured from the back ,the image doesn’t look boring ,their figures are well defined.But I think the landscape orientation would be a better choice.The sky in such cases is not needed.I tried viewing your photo to the top of the trees and no sky and I liked it a lot!
Hello Caterina!Congratulations on your bravery and taking this wonderful portrait!Great character ,well posed and captured!I like the close up approach,the good texture on his beared and hand!He looks really relaxed in front of your camera.Excellent processing of the image!Did you take the photo at a park and did you think of giving a sense of the place?
As of the other image of the kiosk I like how the face of that lady is framed and she’s smiling.I think you had a great opportunity to try Dutch Angle composition in that situation.A little tilt of the camera and avoiding straight squares would create more dynamic and interest in the image.Or it’s just me being obsessed with DA this days 🙂
especially like your second photo. Maybe the photo would have worked better in color – could have provided a better separation of the lady in the kiosk from the stuff around the kiosk – also the lady seems to be a little bit out of focus.
Thanks for your comments. Next time I will try with the DA!
The kiosk is in a park, and the portrait I took it in front of a public toilet in a kind of little “plaza”. I did not want to incorporate more of the place because it was not so nice and he was sat in a wheeled chair, so I thought it would be stronger just with his face.
**Update: Eric and I are a bit swamped this week (Eric is teaching a workshop in Singapore and I have a conference, so we will extend the Week 3 challenge one additional week and post the Week 2 video review up soon!
