are we doing CC?
cc=critque and comments... do you want people to tell you how to improve your image basically
I am just a beginner but I want to comment on your photo anyway...It is plain out wonderful..I love it!
I think this image has overall beauty but is missing an object. I know its called Sunrise Runner, but the runner is such a small object, it seems more like its the sunrise.
More of the use of "rule of thirds" would make this picture more visually pleasing.
Another thing with the runner is, the glare from the sun overcasts him. Even if he was closer, the runner would be too dark to see because of the placement of the sun.
No no no. Sheesh you guys. "Rule" this, "Rule" that. All that creates is geometrically pleasing images with no variation in composition and all "subjects" aligned on some arbitrary grid. The rule of thirds is nothing more than a "guide" for photographers, and like any guide those who TRULY appreciate and understand the art will begin to see their own "Rules" instead of following the herd and obsessing that their ARTISTIC work adheres to some TECHNICAL standard.
Having said that, if you crop the hell out of the right side of the photo (essentially gutting all of the buildings, your runner gets more of a POP! - and that sense of isolated running becomes a bit more evident.
improve my images basically would be nice. As far as giving a name for any of my photos i think i'll wait to do that for now So next time i upload a pic i'll not name it i'll just posted it for now. Thanks all for your opinons.
I'm just a beginner as well
honestly i think I would like it better you cut the runner out completely....make the sunrise the far left part of the frame...so cut just to the right of the runner...and make it just a sunrise pic....i dunno though it says u dont want your photos edited so i will not....try it out and see if you like it....
I like this photo but I agree that it kind of lacks a subject, the runner is so small in the photo... the sunset is beautiful though!
