Thread: Kid at Fountain

  1. #1

    Default Kid at Fountain

    Newbie trying out new DSLR.

    1. In what area is critique to be sought?
    - Color
    - Composition
    - "feel"?

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    - to show sense of helplessness, on how the kid attempts to block the flow of the water, but the blocking itself is only a temporary measure. Once he removes his hands, the water will flow regardless.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    - 4-5pm cloudy afternoon/ early evening

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    - I like the feel of the photo but would prefer the kid to be the main subject, without the other kids around him.

    Thanks for your time.

    to TS...
    I think its a case of trying to overexplain the picture... ??
    its quite cute, but needs to show the face...
    and lose the extra ear by the side...
    keep shooting !!
    I probably collect lenses more than I take pictures

    Ha ha ha, I didn't even notice that ear thing but now that it's mentioned, it's indeed creepy.

    Thanks for the comments. My initial intention was to not show the face, but to use the kid's act of suppressing the water to display some sort of pent-up frustration. Guess I wasn't successful in this aspect. Will take about the facial expression thing.

    Once again, thanks.
