Cycling Race Street Comptroller by Daniel De Cort

February 2021 - Cycling Race Street Comptroller

About the Image(s)

The photo was taken in my village where I live during a summer cycling race. The man who warns the people that the riders are arriving and closes the street is waiting for the first riders.
I used: ISO 100; 1/640; f5; 31mm.

Daniel, The man is looking towards the direction that the riders are supposed to come, and from his face he looks very alert, however the rest of the bystanders are looking into the opposite direction. The time of the day creates long shadows including the face of the man caused by his hat. The other side of the street is pretty dark for the same reason and is not providing any additional interest in the image. The standing street signs behind the man, also create some degree of distraction.   Posted: 02/09/2021 19:57:23

Daniel, this image reminds me of a crossing guard who helps school children and other pedestrians cross the street. A well defined subject with an uncluttered background and placed in his element. The image is sharp and in focus; his face is revealed. He is seated because I imagine that he will be there for quite some time; the fact that he has a mask gives me the idea that the picture was taken within the last year. He's looking for the riders so he has to be alert. The long shadows gives an indication that must be near noon time. A suggestion would be to clean the right edge of the frame by cropping and excluding the back red & blue signage. I would keep the sign in the foreground because it adds to the street envronment.

Daniel, we see a volunteer road guard helping to keep the event safe and something has his attention. For me street photography and lighting is a battle. From the main subject we look down a street and find a dark background. I find the bright white car and even the bright white socks to be a distraction. Perhaps a lower camera angle/position would help capture more of the subjects face and what stories he might tell.   Posted: 02/17/2021 20:53:01

Before I even read the title I could see that the people on the street were all waiting for something (but what?? --- the title explained it). Yes, a mid-day capture (we take photos when we can) but I also like how the street moves across the frame at an angle from left to right into the dark area of the photo.

Leading lines are taking you from one guy to another. Nice street event and people interaction. The signs are adding a different dimension to the photo.   Posted: 02/21/2021 10:25:05
