Like your 'Lost job !!!!!' in the Land/City-scapes and Travel section, this picture again is rather messy.
Perhaps you can put your emphasis on the black mask rather than taking everything, hoping for people to understand your actual intention of this photo. If this is your style, than I suggest you title this picture 'Search for the Mask', than this picture would make sense. You may also try to take at a different angle.
IMHO, there are quite a number of interesting objects that you can place an emphasis on, e.g. the round candles, the heart-shape candles etc.
And this would be a very difficult post, considering the above points to use as self defense.
Clever play of depth of field would have eliminated the distraction. Asking for permission before shooting would cancel out the shop owner from starring at you while taking the pic. Kneeling down or squatting would had discarded the point of the objects were place at the height of your knees.
Its how much effort you want to make this pic a successful one. Not how much the restriction stops you from doing it. :thumbsd:
My intenton was just to make aware everyone the situation i was in while taking the shot...
I welcome all comments , to be frank i like more if someone finds flaw in shot rather than appreciating it bec thats the way i learn more......
Without your thread title, i wouldn't even know i need to look out for a mask. let alone a black mask. i see candles, wine bottles, glasses, balloons even before i set sight on the mask. What you trying to show us with this picture? That you're able to squeeze that many details into one shot?
How useful was that? I'm amazed by what had you just said, as you brought forth another load of excuse.:thumbsd: Look, there is no need of you to shoot just the mask. There is always another way. Play with DOF is one of them.
I know u can do better than this. YOur exif is blocked and i cannot view it to better advice you.
