    This is the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park. I am curious to get some opinions. I like the affect of the little bit of light that was leaking in.

    Let me know what you think.

    Also, do you like the sepia, b/w or lightly desaturated color. If you don't like any of them let me know but be kind please. :wink:

    I think the first is the strongest. I think they are very well done and set. The figure is in somewhat of an awkward pose it seems, in mid-step, and doesn't add to the picture for me. I feel that if the man weren't there and there wasn't a trash bin in the shot that it would be better. Possibly a wider angle could have brought more of the architecture into the frame as well and give more room for the light to reflect around. Good picture and mood :mrgreen:, welldone

    Thanks. I will have to see what I can do with it. This may have actually been cropped a bit.

    whilst all of the images i've seen from you are oddly monochromatic, this one is definitely the best. I like the first one with color the best, because although there is a uniformity of color, it has the boldest feel with the colors. the other images that have been desaturated or sepia tone wash that boldness out for me.

    i agree also that the man in the pic is in an odd point in his stride and overall detracts from the image in his current state.

    Thanks for the input. The two photos of the inside of the casino and theater are intentionally washed out a bit. I guess I am not sure if you like the first one or not. Is it simply the best of the 3 or should I go back to the raw image and do something different?

    I will see if I can clone out the guy walking.

    i do like the first image in color in this post. the colors defintely add to the feel of the image. it's hard to say what else to do, if this isn't the original shot.

    I think he looks great in there.

    Theatre with many people- easy

    Theatre with no people- same

    Theatre with one person, makes you wonder what is playing.

    The fairly awkward stance is very David Lynch.

    I also like the gentleman ... adds a spot of movement, a little flavor. Personally, I try to plumb up those vertical line a bit ... my first impression is that the walls are tilted. I do like the shot and how the light plays off the darkness. Good job.
