Re: Lone Passenger

Thank you all!

And a question: should I crop a bit off the bottom?

And Frank….I really like my parking lot person. I'm wondering if we differ on this because of the population density differences between where we live. I have lots of long views, vistas, open space. Your field of view is always occupied, populated. So that is where you are comfortable.

No,  the  slight tension in the composition that is cause by the elevated position of the subject in the frame gives in this case the extraordinary urge to look at it moreover and it is obvious that many here  like it that way.  Sometimes leaving the traditional paths delivers an effect that was maybe not planned but works out well as in this case.  When you crop from the bottom this "special effect" will disapear and make the pic mediocore.

Cheers

Alternate version

THis crop makes it a very different picture and I wonder which y'all prefer.

Who knows?  You may be right, Sal.  When we used to spend weekends in Fairfield county, I felt it was so empty, and I was by comparison so intense, I felt like I might explode --but that feeling is even worse in California, where I feel like anti-matter.

Sal, you're the artist and have to define your own intention.

The second one makes the picture about the woman.  It could be a still from a movie.  The first one is much more unexpected and a powerful evocation of artistic seeing.

This version of your photo reminds me of the train station scene from Goodbye, Mr. Chips, the 1939 movie directed by Sam Wood. Maybe for that reason I prefer it over the version originally posted.

goodbye at 3:15

Hi Mike.  I shoot downtown.  It's fun to see familiar places through your eye.

Terrific capture.  What is he holding in his right hand?  It really is hard to impress NY ladies.

An very good rolling metal gate shot.  I'm usually not a big fan of featuring wrinkled skin for its own sake, but here it goes very well with the texture of the gates.  I find the amount of vignetting a little distracting, it draws attention to itself and cuts off the lines of the gates unnaturally.

Giving the Frenchies with their shots of kids with baguettes a run for their money.  Go, home team!

This guy should be so easy to get a good shot off of, but I keep failing.  A black guy who wears dark clothing.   Dull canyon light.  very crowded, busy fast-moving street.  You made a clever decision to simplify the scene, but I don't think you nail it.  It still has that dark, busy complicated feeling that stumps me, and while the face and the tourist are good, the bubble mechanism is just confusing to look at.

Hard to go wrong with cute dogs.  Two nice mains of hair.

Shame about the white coat in the background, but the expressions are exceptional and more than make up for it, and the Astor Place background works well.

Thanks Frank! I don't remember, the ladies were def impressed and I think a little scared

yeah, I agree, over did in on the post vignetting

I wish the kid had two bottles of wine instead

agree, not perfect, the best one I could find in the series

couldn't help it, that dog -narcissistic personality disorder would barely describe it - he was king that day

absolutely agree, that coat, screws it up...

thanks for your feedback Frank, really liking your sidewalkshadows.com/blog
