Composition works for me, but the focus seems a tad soft. Maybe from web compression? I would just expect a sharper image from a 5DIII any of those lenses you have listed.

1/60 second at f5 it will be little soft from motion blur, but the front of the first trolley looks pretty good but the people below it look a tad blurry


So if God made Man & Woman....whats his excuse for Nikon...

I like the composition. Color looks good but it gives the impression of being under exposed to me. Perhaps all those dark trees.

You were at 63mm so 1/60 should be doable - if the subject wasn't moving which I suspect was a big part of the scene.

Overall a pretty nice shot.

I shot this with my old XTi and a Sigma 18-200 ISO 400

Thanks, I will try applying lighting to the trees

Composition looks balanced. Even with the shadows boosted it still looks a bit flat in the background to me. Bit more contrast, may be?

Your second edit looks much better in IMO by the way.

Agree, your second edit looks much better. Much more depth and the light looks good. Nice job.

I like the overall composition.

This is one of those shots that should probably be shot with more DOF and a smaller aperture (f/11 or so?). The only thing that distracted me was the softness in the background. I would've preferred the street to be sharp all the way to infinity.

But that's just my 2 cents.


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.
