About the Image(s)

A grab shot seen at Greenfield Village in Michigan this summer. Nikon D7100, ISO 400, minor color editing and cropping in Picasa. The glaring white of the banner bothers me but stark white is always a problem. Initially, the colorful banner caught my attention and its contrast with the grey siding of the house. This, by itself, makes an OK image but the person in the room sets the image apart.

A good grab shot; you suddenly see something and you go for it. The white does not bother me as it is what it is, it is part of the "red, white and blue", our national colors.   Posted: 11/02/2019 10:29:13

A nice clean and simple shot. The whites look a little blown out. Maybe decreasing the highlight slider in Lightroom can bring back some detail. I'm not familiar with Picasa, but maybe you can do something similar there. It would have been nice if one could see the person's eyes though.   Posted: 11/03/2019 06:20:22

I like the red, white and blue against the dark charcoal of the building. I would try to darken the bright white, if possible. The green leaf reflection in the window is so very nice. It's too bad that the window goes across her eyes though.   Posted: 11/03/2019 12:19:09

An interesting image, got some nice elements in there. Nice pleasing face, too bad her eyes blocked, green leaf reflection in the window added extra color and elements. good grab.   Posted: 11/03/2019 20:27:07

Too bad about her eyes. I should have waited a moment or moved myself. But, she may have seen me and ducked away.   Posted: 11/04/2019 16:59:30

I think this is overall a good composition. The colors of the banner I think adds a strong accent to the image.
I agree it would be good to see the persons eyes. I feel the reflection of the leaves is a distraction for my eye.   Posted: 11/08/2019 14:03:23

It is interesting in seeing the reflection on the window. It also can be a lightened background inside the room. The reflection is nicely framed by the colorful banner.   Posted: 11/15/2019 01:03:22
