I took one photo of my neighbors
Wow! I like that. A lot! That's a really interesting and unique composition. Understanding you've not asked for C&C, I will take the liberty of posting my thoughts. There are two minor niggles I have; one is the blown out tray which, because it's so bright tends to grab the eye, and the other is the off-square grid of the tiles. I would suggest squaring/leveling the image based on the tile grid and perhaps a boost of the hue/saturation to bring out the colour.
the grid doesn't bother me so much... but i wouldn't mind if it was even more skewed so it didn't seem like it was inadvertent...
the textures are good... colors are good...
the clothesline bugs me a little bit... seems to cut off the corner... not sure what can be done about it though...
ditto the blown out tray... maybe recover a little in the raw converter...
Yes I did not notice it's little off square, I will straight it thanks
The clothesline doesn't bother me at all. The line mimics her leg. It is a wonderful area of repetition.
I would try burning the bowl so it isn't as bright, and level the picture.
Hey--great shot! I love the overhead angle of view....and all of the strong lines, on the ground,the clothesline, the round shapes of the pans, everything is just super! What a nice look at another culture...a real-life scene very well-shown!
I like it a lot. Nice creative angle. I agree with everything everyone said. I did a quick edit removing the clothesline, leveling the frame, and trying to bring down the levels of the guys outfit and the plate. Unfortunately I could only bring it down very slightly, because its not a RAW file so the plate is still pretty bright.
Thank you guys , you really helped , :thumbup:
