    I took this photo of my partner, taking a photo. This one appealed to me because of the shadow and the way it falls. Any feedback is appreciated :)

    Crop a little?

    It needs something else but I just can't put my finger on it.

    Its just a pretty basic picture of someone taking a picture, but I actually think the open space works well.

    Jus tmy opinion, but I wouldn't crop it. If you want to crop it , try leaving the horizontal the same and just crop off the top and bottom. It says " isolation" to me, in a good way. There's a good bit of tension there for me because of the fact that it's just the photographer on a "blank slate" as it were.

    I love it. have you tried it in B&W?

    Thank you all for your comments. I will have a go at cropping it, and maybe try black and white too. The original had some background but I cropped it so that there was nothing.

    He was taking a picture of his car. I was just caught by the way his shadow fell on the ground.

    This is just my opinion and it may be my monitor, but i darkened it some with the burn tool in photoshop. Just alittle to much sunlight. I hope I post this picture correctly.[​IMG]

    I like what you have done here - I must learn how to use these particular tools in Photoshop :)
