Its just too dark to make out anything interesting for me. The stairs are so white they take center stage.

Nope.big ol Mac;) I can see the people's heads, the shadows etc, but the stairs are just so bright it takes the focus off anything( just Me)you were trying to capture with the people?

hmm well I can't complain there =p haha. I guess it was just a contrasty scene. I exposed for the concrete because I was trying to place the focus on the peoples shadows. Thought it was kind of interesting that the people had no form but their shadows did for once.

Also the one man laying on the stairs being the exception to that.

How about the edit above ^^^ just for you ;]

After looking at that reckless edit, I cant believe how bad I blew out the highlights. Critiques are always keeping me in line haha.

I can see what maybe you were trying to do. But the thing that bothers me the most is the lines are not straight. But there is also nothing that interesting in the photo. Good try though. Still better than anything I can do. I'm new to dslr.

Glad you like :]

The the framing is straight with all the horizontal lines. Though because of the angle of the shot and the lack of a tilt-shift lens, the vertical lines are inevitably going to be slanted. Though I admit that this shot, being straight out of the camera as far as crop, is ever so slightly skewed.

Once you understand the concept of human identity the image holds more value. Most of the time it is in the face of the subject, so when a subject is pictured without a face or their face is obscured we can say that the identity has been stripped from the subject (more-or-less)

The interest is there in the concept, I promise, but I'm sure every image can be better. Here the masses of people have no identity or shape, except what is seen in the shadows, though there is the one dark figure on the white staircase whose face is visible. The shadows should be the initial focal point until you find the one faced man, who should capture the rest of your attention as your mind finds an identity to scrutinize.

Great now I get it shadows are sharpening, now I like more. This is going to make you an interesting concept and I hope you come up with somemore.


Thanks :]
