I tried to do a B&W due to lack of sky. I guess it is waaay to dark, no? C&C?
what is the subject of the photo?
For some reason, the crane throws the whole thing off for me. It makes the horizon seem like its tilted to the left.
:blushing: I just liked the transition from more open space to very loaded background from right to left diagonally - where the crane actually pointing
And yep, the crane does make the horizon tilted - this what I really like about it :blushing:
From noob to noob I thinks it's ok. It doesn't make me think wow but it does remind me of a time when our econmy was booming in the 40's and 50's. Also I might add I'm looking at it on a phone lol. Like always.
funny you say that...i was going to say it looks like a period piece to me too. it has that industrial revolution look to it.
the problem is... you needed to explain the photo... know what i mean?
also... it's pretty tough to pick out the crane against its background...
To answer your original question... Yes "I think" it is a but dark...
Thanks for your comments. Will try to improve it. BTW, I guess the crane was standing out fair more on the original photo in color, but I hear what you're saying.
Thanks again for your time.
I like the basis of the shot, its an interesting subject. As with any subject, you need to try and build a photo from it. What I mean is that personally, I often shoot something from wider out and then look at the scene and try to CC myself and find something wrong...or something I can do different, bits I can pick out and try to focus on.
With this shot, I like the BW and the crane, I just dont like the composition. Anyway you can get a bit lower down and try and isolate the crane against a sky? Would make a decent line / angular photo, with a good industrial feel to it.
Keep building a shot as you are taking photos. I still try and take 10 photos of everything I decide to stop and photograph, from different angles, different lenses, ...
Thank you for your comment. You are absolutely right. Apparently I took the shot during the commercial shoot in Riga from my hotel room window (18th floor) which doesn't open. I don't have any filters besides the UV so I was really limited in angles and due to the reflections :blushing: but of course I wouldn't post the photo if I didn't like it. Will try to improve my framing and shoot more and often.
