About the Image(s)

We were in Venice for their annual celebration of Carnival, this picture was taken a few hors before the Italian authorities issued the order of cancellation of all festivities given the web know problems with Corovid-29. It's a nice image taken with a Lumix G9, 12-60 mm Vario lens set at 46 mm. Apertire value was f./9.9; ISO 500. Post processing was done as usually do with PS/LR 20.

I like how the subject is giving me a look and I am not sure of his intentions and I think the diagonal adds to the uncertainty. You could try flipping it horizontally and toning down the highlights in the background and maybe a vignette.   Posted: 05/07/2020 10:56:00

Art I respectfully disagree with you on both the suggestions. And I'll explain why. Flipping the image it would add or take out any thing to the final image. If we follow the unwritten rules we should read the image like we read a book from left to right. Toning down the color makes an image rich of colors a dull one. I'll not arguing on the taste, that's strictly a matter of taste, beside the colors I remember were more lively than the toned down ones. If one think I regret is that in this image format I had the crop down a lot of details that they might add to a different image format. Fortunately I have the original files and I can go back and change format at any time. And beside, Carnival is a celebration of forms (costumes) and colors. I think that we should reasonably keep that in mind.   Posted: 05/19/2020 09:49:41

Gabriele I like the bright colors that certainly make me think of a Celebration of Carnival. The way he is leaning into the frames just makes it more interesting to me. It certainly is a FUN SHOT. Nice!
