Thread: should i give up? or fight on?

    Default should i give up? or fight on?



    would like feedback on this picture, composition wise, processing and whether if i had achieved the mood.


    a little background info,
    shot on rockmaster men opens finals
    this guy failed two+ tries on his route
    he's trying to figure out what went wrong and whether he should give up or fight on
    at the same time the crowd had already shifted their attention to the other competitor

    If your intend is to show the emotions of the climber, it didn't show.

    Get a closer shot, is there a reason why you give so much space to the mattresses?

    To me, the mattresses speak more words than the subject u choose to focus on...

    I agree with ah bian. More close-up to his complexion. Hopefully if you are able to capture the image of sweat dripping will be more emotional and captivating.

    Cheers!

    In terms of PP, here's my try.. crop the pic so that subject is in the thirds.. add blur and vignetting to the surrounding people.. darken the surrounding more and lighten the subject..
    Not sure if this works..

    i think i landscape version would be nicer? no need to have so much mattress in the shot.

    Either way, great capture.

    I think that a closer shot would be good
    THe crowd are all facing away from him
    By going in closer, it would probably have a bigger impact imho

    Think the vignetting is overdone; there is now a lack of environment.

    Probably like some of us, myself included, reason for the matresses are the lack of "reach". Not enough dough for longer lenses...

    Maybe a shot of the subject when he lifts his head up will have a better effect. Although, the title should then be "fight on" 1st, followed by "give up"... Just my 2 cents
    The DIFFERENCE is not in the "Cue", it is in the SKILLS...
