First of all, I like the idea and know that it's difficult to make it perfect for everyone O:. But the blurr around the girl looks a bit strange to be just due to movement and the contrast with the black background is really harsh. Is that darkness real?
Hauntingly beautiful. Simple but fantastic! Find myself wondering where she's going or where she's been!
Frank Schultz, bhimaprasad maiti and pretentious Gregory baker, let's see your pictures and see if you are worth your criticism.
May I let my mind wonder to her leaving the covered roof to enter into the mild drizzle, Very nice stage! Very nice creation! Keep creating and having faith in your own way of visual art!
Its also very staged, very well. Because it´s not raining. Wouldn´t hire a spritzer only an umbrella.
Such magical moments occur only to the expert eyes; nobody knows this
lady and will never know her either. May be not even the photographer too!
Yet, the immortal touch of red in the grayish scene adds a touch of
surrealism to the entire photograph that transcends time and space!
love the visual effect, along with the contrast of colours, and animated/inanimated distinction - a fine choice
It is a cool shot, but to me it looks almost painted. The girl is not really in focus...kinda blurred...
You certainly did, with amazing results. The lady in red walking into the waiting darkness,leaving the lighted structure behind her, is framed so very well. An almost black and white shot, that catches the eye in its stark beauty. j.e.s..........
Very nice composition. It almost appears to be black and white with only the women in color. Even the curb to the left frames her. She is walking into blackness which makes her very much the center of interest. The wire frame of the umbrella repeats the triangular shapes of the beams. Her legs match the color of the beams. It is very modern and minimalistic. I think if anything was left out, it just wouldn't work
Thanks, I like critics. The darkness is real (worked on the contrast a bit) and the blur is due to my (evident) limits as a photographer. I'm not a pro, I'm just a passionate amateur.
@Diane Foucault What's the issue here? Anyone can express their own -even-if-divergent- opinions. By the way, where's your opinion?
Thank you for the feedback. I do what I can, I'm not a pro, I just like to shoot. And yes, it was raining.
@M. Clendenen "The girl is not really in focus...kinda blurred" it could be due to the shutter speed being slow. which is pretty normal for night shots.
@Alfred Wilmot It does not look really like that either,
