    ..... so far.

    I participated in the Scott Kelby Photowalk again this year. Up to this point, this is my shot of the day.

    Wow.

    What's his story? He looks like a burn victim or something. Weird things going on in the half of his body closest to the camera.

    That said, the photo is not that good because of the street light behind him. The dark street light against his darker skin doesn't quite work for me.

    And it's a horizontal framing why,exactly? To include the base of the lamp post??

    And how would you get rid of that in a vertical crop?

    So it's not a framing problem...

    More like a move and reframe deal. And, of course, you are assuming that there is nothing worse to the left as the photog moves to the right. :)

    Dunno the story, twas a grab shot, but a burn victim nonetheless. You shudda seen his backside. Although it may not show as decsively here, the original has a clear separation between the subject a background (base of street light).
    Cause.

    I had the camera set to single shot. I was shooting something else entirely and this man happened upon the scene.

    Is this one any better?
