Revisited some of my B&W shots taken recently.
The original uncropped, scanned from neg is here.
The below is the cropped version.
IMO, the orig photo looks lifeless, it does not speaks nor sparks any interest except for his priceless smile (fyi, he seldom smiles when we were there shooting, only occasionally). Other reasons were the subject was placed at the center of the composition and has no eye contact. Therefore, I was trying to capture his priceless expression by doing a tighter crop.
Does it works? Appreciate yr comments.
