a couple shots i took while moseying around on the waterfront the other day.
tell me what yah think!
I really like the last one. The jogger really makes the shot. I think it would also work if most or all of the watter was cropped out. Leaving just the horizon, people, sky & clouds. But it's pretty good as is.
yeah, I thought so too. I tried it though, and didn't like it.
This is one of the few times where a split horizon actually works for me. It draws my attention to the horizon line, which is normally a distraction, but here it leads me to the runner.
I'd probably take out that second figure, just so the jogger could be alone.
Damn cool pic!
I like it cropped right at the water line, the standing figure removed, and burning in the stuff at the left so it blends in with the black.
mmm, that is kinda nice.
kinda feels like there's something missing tho. i think (for me) this crop needs a more spectacular sky, or something else. i'll go try this again when the mountains are clear...
here's another like that. do you think the lensflare detracts from it?
Yes, I love the cropped version. Maybe it could use something to liven up the open sky area...like a NIKE swoosh. I could see this as a full page ad in Sports Illustrated.
The new one, ya, the lens flare bothers me as well as the curved horizon (probably from barrel distortion).
actually, that one's from a slightly different angle... i think that COULD be the shape of the breakwater you're seeing there...
thanks all for the useful and encouraging replies!
Guess I'm the odd one out but I really like the first one.
I like the uncropped version. It fills your eyes, and the jogger is so striking!!
My fave is the 1st one, cropped to just above the bottom stone to make it kinda square. Getting the "clutter" out of the foreground really makes this a nice shot.
I like the cropped version of the last one also.
