He is the dude, who speaks things out loud, when someone is buried in the cemetery. I just don't know the word in english. Many are used to see the priest doing that. Aaaaanyhooo. For a magazine. This time specifically asked for BW, style and "movie crop".

Hey, Olafs!

I like the general composition of the image, with him looking "out of the image" instead of "into the image". The way you place your subjects off-center and have them face the short side of the composition has become a style of yours, and I think that for most purposes it is very effective. . Who wants to see the same old boring "rules" followed all the time, anyway?

Anyway, something comes to mind when I see this image, and that is something I heard years ago that went, "the brightest part of your image will stand out, and tend to be the thing that draws people's attention."

In this image, the brightest thing, by far, is the officiant's white shirt and collar. . I mean, it appears to be several stops brighter than anything else in the entire frame.

Is the shirt really the thing that your image is all about? . I mean, are you trying to showcase the person, or this one article of clothing that they are wearing?

When something is so much brighter than everything else around it, it becomes the focal point of the image - that one thing that viewer's eyes will continually be drawn to. . This is a fact that we, as photographers, can use to our advantage. . But, in this case, it seems to be working against you instead of for you.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

So you say the shirt eats up too much... I see. Will try to do something with it, you're right.
