GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Marcus Miller

October 2019 - GIRL ON THE TRAIN

About the Image(s)

How do you idle away 2 hours on a train? We were sitting in the back of the coach and randomly the sun lit up passengers' faces. So lots of shots but few keepers. ISO was at 1000 and a crop at the top to eliminate a bright spot. This is a reflection from the underside of the luggage rack.

This is an interesting technique. Suggest rotating 180 degrees, as below.
Also, see my shot this month in Group 32. I shot into a mirror on an airport shuttle, then flipped left for right so my camera name would be readable.   Posted: 10/08/2019 14:50:17

Thanks Stephen, you're a genius. Rotating the image add so much to the image while keeping the viewer wondering. Marcus   Posted: 10/08/2019 18:16:08

The rotation suggested by Stephen works well. Also as another option, maybe worth cropping to isolate the girl in the middle with a bit of the adjacent window.   Posted: 10/21/2019 13:09:07

I agree with the rotated image .....and Maybe crop out the red head in the foreground   Posted: 10/21/2019 13:17:05

Marcus.. I also agree with the suggestions of others to rotate and crop the image so its readable to the viewer. I like the diagonals created which frames the girl and provides an interesting camera position. Next time I'm on a train I'll have to remember to look up!   Posted: 10/23/2019 05:24:39

This is an excellent creative idea well executed; the rotation angle was very effective. Overall a rare and interesting perspective. My eyes tend to focus on the large empty seat that dominates the foreground with a redhead abruptly cut-off and the shining metal back of the seat. What if you crop off most of the empty seat and faceless redhead in the foreground?   Posted: 10/24/2019 20:27:43

As you know, when you sent the image, I wondered whether you intended to post it as it or flipped. Seeing both images together, I must say that I prefer your original image, although both work. But I would crop off the head of hair at the top of the image.   Posted: 10/26/2019 13:23:07
