Hi guys, I will like feedback on the composition.
To me, the waterdrops freezing in mid air and the child's expression are the subjects. Hence, I framed only half the face, as the viewer can tell the child's expression even though its a portion of the face. I always aim to be as minimalistic as possible in my photos, that means I only show what I think is vital in the photo, so a photo critique will never fault me for showing unecessary distraction whatsoever. However, sometimes, I might over-crop away photo elements that might be crucial...That's where I need feedback from.
I will also like to know if the shadow at the back of the kid is distracting in your opinion, because I used the flash to freeze the water droplets.
The child in the photo is actually my brother, and he's wearing a scapula...See that string. Should I photoshop it away? Though, personally I feel that a bare shoulder blade makes the lower right portion look "empty" and less interesting. Opinions?
Lastly, I will like opinions on the tone and colour of the photo. Should I make it more contrasty as in a typical BnW photo?
Does it evoke a mood or feeling when you view this photo?
And, Thanks for Viewing.
