I didn't try for faces; this was artists working on their pieces and the typical way you see the artist in this environment is face down over their art.Would be nice to see the artists' faces. Nice balance of the exposure with the broken shade.
Interesting and sensible comment.Nice shots Lew. I find the cutoff point of the artist's feet in the first shot a little distracting. His posture makes it look like they are actually cut.
Thank you for these comments and for the look.My favorite here is the last. The dichotomy of the asphalt on the left and the artwork on the right make this a striking photo and call to mind a Mondrian work. Perhaps an effort to make this photo precisely symmetrical would improve the final product.
Lew, I wasn't suggesting any "fixing" in PP. I actually like the stray bits of chalk, etc... I was merely suggesting that a crop which formed symmetrical squares would make the image more powerful.Thank you for these comments and for the look.
The last is clearly in a different track than the first three. I thought about 'fixing' it in PP but that would have meant a good amount of PPing to move the chalk, etc. and that seemed, imo, to go too far to create a picture that I should have captured in the camera. So I left it alone.
I think you're right.Lew, I wasn't suggesting any "fixing" in PP. I actually like the stray bits of chalk, etc... I was merely suggesting that a crop which formed symmetrical squares would make the image more powerful.
