Re: trying on 1 (metamorphosis)

I love #3. Just precious... the expression of this woman under her elf hat! Nice series.

Ghosts of the Winter Garden

Another poem/photo combination, a little more ambitious perhaps.

I don't think the layout would work very well as a dpr post, so I am linking my blog.  You can enlarge the picture there by clicking on it.

while i like the proportions of sky/sea/land in the frame, it is a bit infelicitous for silhouette--the human figures get kind of lost amid the rocks to the right, and water with/without detail. otoh, i like the shadows against the fg. so, in this case, i would agree either that you could try lifting the shadows a bit more (the near side of the figures, not the shadows they cast on the ground), or else maybe tried getting a bit closer and lower to really silhouette their outlines against the sun, rather than against the horizon below the sun.

i do generally think that this scene has an interesting potential, partly because of the way the ground looks like the back of a whale...

xtoph thank you for taking the time to comment on my pics, it's really helpful for a noob like me and the reason i decided to post in this forum. i agree with what you said, wish i have experimented a little more but its not easy when i think i might be disturbing someone's moment.

that's the sort of character we all love to encounter, and you have him in an excellent phase of his stride. i really wish either you were standing two steps to your right, or had snapped a moment sooner, as he kind of looks like he's smacking into the traffic light pole behind him, which interrupts the energy he brings to the frame. but, you have a good clean bg for him to be outlined against, and the guy at the left kind of works, so perhaps i am being too picky.

one does get a sense of bygone times looking at what is also clearly a contemporary shot, which is always interesting.

again you make very valid points but it's so hard for me to decide in just a couple of seconds how to shoot the subject.

Re: The wheel

It's always hard. SP is incredibly difficult. It is so hard to anticipate, and catch the split second moment. Sometimes we're lucky….and the experts here are 'lucky' more often than the rest of us.

great expressions here specially from the two subjects on the right, i wonder at what are most of them looking at.

Re: >>> Street Photography eXchange #85 <<<

I enjoy images where the viewer has to wonder something, and maybe make up his own story. I'd tell you, but I think that maybe questions are more fun than answers.
