1.in what area is critique to be sought?
I would like feedback on the composition, exposure and the overall feeling of this picture.
I have composed the picture this way because I thought it would be nice to place the sun in the middle of the camel and the man
I will like feedback on photography techniques.
The following is the camera settings used to photograph this picture:
Canon 600D 18-55mm lens on Av mode.
iso 100 at 43mm f5.0 shutter 1/640s
On Av mode I focused on the sun so that i can create shadow of the objects in front.
I will like feedback on post processing techniques.
I added black to this picture in Light Room, just to get rid of the unnecessary details of the foreground.
Would like to ask if this is enough, or what else do you suggest?
2.what I hope to achieve with the piece of work?
I want to show the life of camel man.
They depend on their camels for living as tourists pay to ride on the camels.
3.under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I took this picture at about 5.30pm in India, was feeling quite high as I was excited, about everything around me.
4.what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I think the composition of this picture should be okay, maybe the sun is not very well centralised, will be better if it is placed a bit more towards the man.
And water bottle which the rider is holding, I find it a bit distracting as well.
I'm not a professional photographer, photography is more of a hobby and passion for me as I'm still a student. Any comments and feedback are welcomed
