About the Image(s)

Similar to what was posted last month, this was taken in Philadelphia a few years back, was walking with family and suddenly from a corner of my eye I saw this kid, his red jacket in evening light caught my attention and took 3 pictures quickly.

Post processing, not much as the original file was good, I tried to recover blown highlights on pillars, but could not do much, I normally take RAW but this was not, otherwise I could have made some improvements.

Camera : FUJI XE-1 Lens:18-55 Kit lens

Exposure: 1/50Sec; f/20; ISO 400

Post process: Photo Shop, Light room.

Hi Sunil, I like the picture. Perfect composition. I like the post-processed color, and the mood of the red kid. The clean up is well done too. Nothing else I can comment.

If really picky, I might clean up the two little red spot on the right hand side, and might be will further clean up the people too. But that doesn't really help much, so can just leave them as is.

The pillars are really over exposed.

Cheers.   Posted: 10/01/2019 22:49:12

I love the addition of the little boy, he makes the image work. As well as Richard's comments I would crop it a bit tighter to bring him towards the third, and try to remove the people on the left as they are a distraction. Here is a quick and dirty edit to show.   Posted: 10/06/2019 11:26:25

I love how you find kids in bright clothing! Compositionally, its lovely and you have a real winner here. I agree with the comments above. A very sweet moment and different from many other photos we see like this.   Posted: 10/06/2019 20:05:47

You've perfectly captured the essence of childhood curiosity. Nice image Sunil.

I also like the way we the viewer are looking through the branches, as if coming upon this moment ourselves.   Posted: 10/08/2019 12:45:54
