This photo approaches what I want to see from you. You've taken an athletic scene and turned it into performing art. Poetry in motion. BW was definitely the way to go. I wish the cityscape wasn't interrupted by the poles and beams. But the 'dancer' herself... wonderful!

I think you could go back there and do some more...

There's such a rich potential in this shot. If this thoughtful girl could be taken out of the shadows. I hope you won't mind... but I couldn't resist trying. (hard to work on such a small jpeg). Apologies in advance if you don't appreciate the attempt.

Thanks, David

Yes, I'd like to go back.   I don't know what can be done about the structural elements in the composition, but it's worth exploring.   It might also help if I had access to my raws in LR, but there is not a good profile for the D810 yet, so I'm processing jpg's for now.

I was really surprised when I took an editing class a few years ago that so many of my best shots then showed the expression of the human form, male and female.  I never think about it.

Re: Selfie accessory

A Monopod, if you have one, serves the purpose of extending a camera out there. I use one to get height, or a difficult angle.

Sorry Sal, I should have added a smiley. I was suggesting that "selfie sticks" may become available from upmarket accessory manufacturers, at their customary upmarket prices.

I do have a very sturdy monopd, but might struggle to get a QR plate to fit my phone.  

Cheers

Re: Beach volleyball in Brooklyn

would liked to have seen the ball against the building window. that would have been a more decisive moment imo. nice though none the less.

Re: Writing down her thoughts

the blurry b&w does help some, but unfortunately without being told exactly what to look at, the woman gets lost in the mulch as does her notebook.

Ondines in Brooklyn

As they kiss, the third Ondine calls. Hans dies. Ondine looks around in puzzlement. She asks, "Who is this handsome young man lying here, can you bring him back to life, Old One?" He replies, "Impossible." As the curtain falls Ondine says, "What a pity! How I should have loved him!" [Ondine - a play by Jean Giraudoux]

I've taken, and seen, a lot of failures with this kind of fountain.   I think this is the first good one I've seen.   I'd quibble a little over the angle/pose, especially the head, but overall it works well.  The basketball is a pleasant surprise and well placed.

Thanks for your comments. I did get some with his head better positioned. But I liked this one where he was trying to sit on the jet. The key point with this kind of shot is to use a high shutter speed.

I like the effect of the netting. Especially for what it does for the sky. There's an interesting symmetry here as well. 3 on the left sitting. 3 on the right interacting. 1 on the ground who separates them all.

Mending his bike...

I took this one at about 10pm local time.

No time to sleep, I need to fix my bike

Re: Ondines in Brooklyn

This is so perfect...and the Ondine parallel is such a treat....I can't help harboring a tiny wish that there was a tiny space between the dancers' heads and the causeway/viaduct/bridge/traintracks - whatever it is.
