Wonderful composition; I love the diagonals. This definitely sets itself in a specific period.
Great shot. The composition is really nice, I like the shadows too.
This photo got my vote in the photo contest :thumbup:
Thanks guys, I do still have some bugs to work out on lighting and what not but, I was pleased with it.
Great lighting. A little too staged, though in my opinion.
You are not the only one who shares that oppinion, Some Crit work offered via PM said the same. Only exception being the reflection of light on the glass being of no value, and now that I see it, it has got to go.
LOL I kind of figured this was your shot in the contest.. lol Very Film Noir!
Yeah, I suspected some people would figure it out but never the less, I had to go with it.
Ah, your Challenge Entry. I recognised this must have been yours right away. It reads "Battou" all over .
Oh, and I'm just realising that I am not the first to say so... :roll:
Yeah I corrected a lot of compositional errors from the last one of these, but despite this I knew the overall layout would be familiar. In fact I think it was my added thought to composition that caused the contrived look.
I now have collected five of the six props for the shot like this I have been planning for quite some time, I can't wait for the sixth one to turn up.
