Is this shot too cluttered or not enough action, give me you thoughts.
This is a non-photographers view....
Its not 2 cluttered... My eye focuses on the open door and the 3 unfocused people in the front. There's also a stick to my right.. I don't know what that is.. but it bothers me. Your DOF is different.. I don't know if I like the picture. This is just my humble opinion....
The out of focus heads in the foreground are distracting.
There is no fire..........
I am expecting one when I read the title Fire Shot and open the thread.
It might be too cluttered and not enough action. The out-of-focus stick is where my eye wants to go. And even though there are at least seven people in the photo, there is not a single face.
I think I would want to see a wider shot: this is someone's home. A facial expression or at least some posture or body language that suggests some kind of emotion would be a big improvement.
I hope you took more than one photo.
The stick is a pike pole and I thank you all for your thoughts.
I'm with black magic. Too cluttered and not enough going on.
