Was at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple to do IR on it, but the sky was so moody, and didn't get the effect I intended so I just gave up and sat on the pavement, hoping the sky would clear. So while I was there, this ang moh couple just sat underneath the temple as well (at the side); after a while this old man came by.
This scene caught my eye because of a few things - the fact that one is a tourist, one is a local; one is young, one is old; the difference in postures, actions; yet the similarity in concentration and perceived mood.
I had nothing to do, so well, I just snapped a few pictures, kept this one. Because the old man was moving, and I had not much experience in taking people, I er, opened up the aperture more. Resulting in the ang moh woman in the background being slightly soft when you blow it up - not sure if you can see it here.
All C&C is welcome, but in particular C&C in these areas would be much appreciated:
1) Can you see the point I am trying to make without reading any writeup?
2) Is the softness (of the background) perceivable at this size or am I just being overtly critical of the sharpness?
3) Processing - whether it works for you to set a "mood"
Many thanks to whoever takes the time to reply, and cheers!
