My first picture in the critique corner...come to think of it...my first picture to be posted on this forum.
Going on with the formalities :
1. in what area is critique to be sought?
I am going to say...in the photograph??? Critique in everything, from framing to exposure to suggestions on how to improve the image.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Uhh...a good shot, a nice grade perhaps. I took this picture as part of a street photography assignment. Its one of the 6 pictures I selected for my final submission. First I took an empty escalator while going down. Then I took pics from the ground up, gave a nice effect. Figured I am done, finally took the escalator back up. Saw this guy in front of me and decided to take a snap. It was a 'in the moment' shot. I didn't play with the settings. Just shot it at whatever my previous settings were.
Picture was taken with the fisheye lens.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Physical conditions? welllll..I was on the escalator...it was moving. Thus the zoom blur effect on the left side, which I really like.
Emotions? I was trying to take a good snap of him before we reach the top. Managed to get 5 shots...3 were blurry, 1 was horribly framed. This one seemed to be the best from the five.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I like the concept. And I love the zoom effect that was produced.
