lay it on me....
did I post this at a bad time or is this photo junk?
I really like the ideas in this shot -- the shadows and the strong diagonal line made by the human shadow. But I wish the sand didn't have all of those distracting rocks, and I wish there wasn't that pole shadow almost merging with the leg shadow on the right.
Still, it's an interesting shot, not junk.
This shot is kind of hard to critique. I'm not sure why... I guess I'm just not sure what to say about it. Anyway, I like this shot. Very good exposure for the sand. Although it is a little hard to tell what the subject's doing without the title. But overall it's a good shot.
Thanks for the feedback. Maybe there is just nothing to say about it? it's not incredible, but maybe there isn't anything necessarly "wrong" with it composition wise?
As for "what the subject is doing" it doesn't really matter (IMO). Let your imagination flow and the photo will speak YOUR language, or, it won't. hehe.
In any case, I appreciate your input! thanks again.
