Needs Improvement bostankorkulugu 2007-02-18 8:38

1. I don't like the framing, with the head and arm cutted...

2. I think that you have chosen a wrong shutter speed... He looks like a ghost!!! The transition from the head and the arms esp on the left to the wall has such a poor image quality... I'm sure the image would have been better with the right setting. I did this mistake before...

Bottom line: the picture doesn't suit me... I would have chosen either a wider picture, showing the whole party, or another title, so that we could believe that there was really a "party" going on there...

This was adopted from your critique on my "beauty and the beach" shot... i ve also realised that the below sentence of yours from another critique fits here (and on some of your other posts) as well:

"...Also, even if there was some purpouse on this photo, it would fit better in Treklens, as it provides nearly no knowledge on any place, which by the way is the idea of Trekearth: getting to know other places from photos..."

Default To bostankorkulugu: ;-P

First of all, thank you for you critique ;-P

1. I like the framing because it confines the photo to the DJ, showing only what needs to be shown.

2. The ghost like effect is intentional, adding movement to the otherwise static picture of the DJ. Action is the word.

3. When I took this picture I wanted to focus on the DJ only, hence the tight compo...

4. And yes :-D this picture would fit far better on TrekLens, I have to admit.

So, overall, I don't really think there are any major flaws on this picture but, as you (and I) said, TE ain't probably the best place for it...

Have Fun
Rui Seabra
