Thanks for your advice, Mike. You guys are my photo education! Which of these two would you choose?I really like the second image mostly because of the framing of the subject by the window behind her and because of the tiny but important detail of the similarity of aspect ratio between that window and the cell phone. In fact, if the image was mine I would crop to eliminate the horizontal windows.
As always, a very effective monochrome conversion.
I'm not quite sure what you are envisioning, but I tried another version accordingly..... (it's good to be retired!)I prefer the additional height of the first revision.
To try something cute that I don't know whether it will work, use a crop that places the subject relative to the frame as close as possible to her position relative to the window. If it works, it will be a cute frame within a frame.
Thanks so much, Alan!I like the first one better. The vertical crop goes along with the vertical lines of the door.
I was imagining cropping on the left and bottom to place the subject in the very bottom left corner of the frame, just as she is in the bottom left corner of the window. I tried that crop and didn't like it, so I won't even bother showing it to you.I'm not quite sure what you are envisioning
Thanks so much, Bart!I really like this "Quiet moment", Dossy!
The overall view in #1 definitely works for me as it shows the environment, also in the reflections. The environment is a perfect setting for this quiet moment.
#2 is a great image of the person experiencing the "Quiet moment"
Of the original and the alternative versions of this image, I like the #1 below best.
Thank you for experimenting, Mike. I really appreciate your time and advice!I was imagining cropping on the left and bottom to place the subject in the very bottom left corner of the frame, just as she is in the bottom left corner of the window.
