A Golden Hope
Hi everyone, this is my first post in the Critique Corner. Please feel free to comment on anything.
1. In what area is critique to be sought?
I'd appreciate any C&Cs on composition, exposure, and anything on the overall picture. Seeking for any tips/suggestions that could make my shooting improve.
2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
My main subject is the silhoutte of the fisherman in the boat. When I look at him, I get this feeling that he's tired of his daily routine, hoping to someday that he could break out from this "hamster wheel" and have a prosperous life. The bright sun gives me a feeling that there's hope for him, hence the title "A Golden Hope".
3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
This was taken between 7-8am at a beach where fishing is a main source of income for most of the residents, everyone was up early to go about their daily routines. Everyone was busy and you can see different emotions on their faces. Sun was shining and some great clouds overhead. Sun backlits the subject, giving it a pretty solid silhoutte. Somehow, you could picture his emotions just by how his silhoutte looks like. On the other hand, he may just be reaching for something or anything haha
4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
Blown highlights on the sun. Composition too tight. Better without the two empty boats.
Thanks everyone for passing by!
