Thread: Drifter

  1. #1

    Default Drifter what area is critique to be sought?
    I will like feedback on the composition and post processing techniques. For this picture, I deliberately left the car a bit smaller than usual as I think the surroundings also play a part in enhancing the car better than if it was cropped away.

    I also boosted the color contrast and sharpness of the picture in photoshop.

    2.what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    This being a drifting performance, I wanted to give a sense of motion.

    3.under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    I was part of a crowd and only had a handheld compact camera with me. In order to achieve the "motion" effect, i set the shutter to 1/30 and used freehand panning.

    4.what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    I think the picture is nice. In some way, the freehand technique made the picture a bit more artsy. Also, the surroundings seem to converge towards the car thus helping to bring the car to be the centre of attention. Still, I would love to hear opinions from fellow members what they think of this picture.

    the panning is well done.

    while this is a central composition, there are leading lines in the way of lights at the top leading to the car.

    how i would improve this, is perhaps to consider a 16:9 crop or something more panoramic to elminate that bottom barrier.

    Thank you night86mare for your comments. Coming from you, it is an honour.

    With no comments for so long, I thought this picture SUCKED!

    Night86mare is smack on -- A 16:9 crop would cut out the top and bottom, which right now, are taking attention away from the car.

    Agree with the bottom barrier comment - it seems to put a stop on the motion.

    A tighter crop might make things more dramatic. And if the car is moving towards you, the motion might be more engaging - just a hunch.

    nah.. it's just that the critique corner is hardly frequented.

    rarely are there bosoms to be reaped here.

    Thanks to all for their comments especially Night86mare who still takes time and effort to visit Critque corner to give advice.

    I also agree that a tighter crop will be better.

    So sorry for making Nysheng giddy.

    wondering, you said you were part of a crowd because this was a drifting demo... maybe if you switched angle to show more of the crowd, then you wouldnt need to crop? Plus the motion-blurred crowed would add to the atmosphere of this being a demo event
