About the Image(s)

I liked how people are distributed in the place in the presence of the sunlight and shadow. I have taken the advantage of having a slopped street to take this angle.
the settings were: 1/1000 sec. f/8 50mm Prime , ISO: 200

Hassan, it is an interesting image specially by the very low vantage point you used. Now, I am not sure about the focus point, it is in the foreground on the green grass and the canal on the left. The slop and the people (3-odd number) are out of focus. Was your intention to make this image sort of intriguing ?. Indeed the very steep street is a good daily exercise.   Posted: 06/10/2020 08:03:41

Hassan - interesting perspective and diagonals. The interplay of sunlight and shadows on the buildings make for interesting light. The young girl I believe is the subject, since she appears to be the largest figure and I like her placement on the thirds. She is soft but perhaps this was your intention?   Posted: 06/11/2020 14:28:11

I really like the perspective and how the drainage ditch acts to bring the viewer into the photo. I would however prefer to have seen the young girl also in focus with the line leading right to her.   Posted: 06/12/2020 20:11:15

An unusual point of view makes this photo very interesting and there is a focus of attention. Just as Isaac, I would have liked the girl sharpen.   Posted: 06/17/2020 12:36:24

I like the low angle view/perspective. Shooting down a hill from a low angle gives a different view-nice. The focus on the drainage tiles and the grass in the foreground certainly made me study the picture more than if the first person on the hill was in focus. The picture does feel soft but the focus on the objects in the foreground did make my eye travel.   Posted: 06/20/2020 05:54:41

Took me a while to figure out the girl's stance. It seems that she is not stepping over the ditch but stepping onto a ledge. Her left boot looks unnatural because it is half hidden by the top of a step. Keeping the foreground sharp and a low camera position adds a lot of depth to the photo and a 3D quality.   Posted: 06/28/2020 20:55:21
