    Default Great Kindness and Compassion


    Sony A350 + Minolta 24-85mm RS @ F/4.5, 1/10s, ISO800, 28mm, Flash Off.

    Hello all, this is my first contribution here!

    Aim
    To portray a sense of solemness, tranquility and solace, as if in consultation with the Goddess herself.

    Personal Thoughts
    To achieve my aim, I decided to stop down a little so as to create a darker photo with the lighting emphasised more strongly on just both the Goddess and the subject.

    Critique Objectives
    I would like some inputs in the following areas:
    - Exposure (Is the background and the surroundings too dark?)
    - Depth of Field (Should I have blurred the background more? Should the lady be sharper?)
    - Composition (Should I have cropped away the empty space on the left side?)

    Appreciate all comments! Btw, this was a candid shot taken at the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.

    i do not see any solace or tranquility.a better way to potray this is not have any words ing the picture.this make the place look more like a museum.the woman in the photo makes the photo even worse.for example,if you were indeed searching for peace and solace,would you be carrying a bag?would your eyes be open?Should'nt you be kneeling?Also,my idea of tranquility does not include harsh artificial lighting.I would also feel more tranquility if i were in a natural surrounding.
