Thread: Dreamy Tunnel

  1. #1

    Default Dreamy Tunnel

    Hi All.

    I was @ New York - Central Park this summer, and while I rest behind The Met, I saw the (I think) lovely patterns.
    It was taken on sunny-summer-day, and put the camera at the closest stable surface (the bench).....

    I want to picture what looks like a dreamy - endless tunnel here.

    Does it work for you guys ?
    Please C&C on color & composition (or on everything, which I need to improve here).

    Taken with 50mm, Aperture priority @ f/2.8, focus at second "circle" from front to give foreground and background blur.



    Cheers.

    I like the idea. But your "endless tunnel" doesn't sit well with me, because I can actually tell where the bench ends. Maybe can try a slightly a different angle so that the viewer really cannot see where it ends...

    Hi all, thanks for c&c. (I am open for inputs to improve).

    Hi Yatlapball, thanks for the tips, will note next time, or PP it to make the end of bench "invisible".

    I bet this would look fantastic in b/w too.

    nice use of leading lines.
    But would prefer a tighter frame as the greens on the right is very distracting.

    except the background is rather unflattering (you can't do much though) and abit underexpose to me personally, i like your concept.. good job!!

    Nice job. Certainly is a new way of looking at benches. Very creative idea.

    A tighter crop would probably take care of the end in sight as well as the brighter right side of the picture...

    Hi All, thanks for the tips, critiques and comments.

    I hope the PS'ed versions of the picture are allowed by the moderators. If they're not, just let me know and I'll take 'em down.

    Hi all, kindly C&C on the adjustment below. TIA.

    Black & White version, with cropped right section to cut away the green and end of bench.

    I'd prefer the coloured version.

    I prefer the one without the crop. The green grass balances the colours and composition.
    good shot!
