1. In what area is critique to be sought?
- Composition and color tone

2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
- Trying to get the 'people behind the newspapers' kind of impression (I think fail leh)

3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
- I took this photo while accompanying a friend at work, from a level above the 'models'. Used a 5D Mark II with the 24-105mm f/4.0L

4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
- I find it lacking 'color' and maybe I should have gone down to the same level and gotten a better perspective.

Picture was cropped slightly and the levels were adjusted to brighten up the image.

C&C welcomed.:D

Thanks in advance!:)

Do not understand your title, that's why I take a look.

I support what you think, I think also fail leh.

didn't do justice to such a piece of equipment you have.

i think if you had taken on the same level as them it will take a great candid street shot.

one comment about your photo is you are taking against a brightly lit background hence your subjects are all underexposed.

Shoot at same level is correct, since there are 6 people holding up the tabloids, it would be an oblique angle, something like 30 degrees from the very first guy, landscape format wise composition, and a very long lens ( something like 300 mm ) to compress all the 6 papers headings together, an aperture of 8 ~ 11 to get enough depth of field, however have to compromise with slowest shutter speed in view of camera shake with such long lenses, with existing ( available ) light exposure.

All in all, it needs quick reflexes, combining the right hardware application.

Perhaps by the time you walk down one level, ( several seconds goneby ) all things have changed.
