Hello Jose,
whatr an impressing image, it takes some time to find the small pesrion in all those pajones and after looking ath the image a few minutes I can understand an total agree to have the person in the middle. Thats the place, where it shoud be and where you can find it.   Posted: 04/13/2021 06:53:37

Fun shot Jose. took awhile for me to notice the person the middle. Maybe if she was wearing all black or all white it would make a bigger splash. Love the idea of this though. Nice texture.   Posted: 04/15/2021 20:36:17

This is a really neat composition! Took a while until I saw our model. How high were you flying the drone above her?   Posted: 04/16/2021 15:32:52

Actually, the portrait of the owner of the land was this, but once it was done and for my private collection, the drone went up to about 15 meters high to lose it in the greatness of the land   Posted: 04/16/2021 15:56:53

Jose, Wow. Very fun image and interesting composition. It's like one of those visual word games on Facebook. My eye found her right away because her arms do not continue the repeating pattern and texture of the pajones. I prefer the way her arms are arranged in the closer color image though. I like the color image a lot and I'm sure the landowner was also pleased. Back to the B&W image. The whole image is fascinating. Again, like a visual game that needs to be solved. The repeating texture of the beautiful pajones are a wonderful background for this long-distance aerial portrait.   Posted: 04/18/2021 16:53:01

Hi Jose, really nice shot, very artistic. By going up 15 more meter from the height the color photograph was taken, a portion of the land with no pajones is included. It is bit distracting to me. Also I thought the subject, because of the color of her cloths, stood out better in the color version. May be taken 10 meter instead of 15 meter would be better.   Posted: 04/18/2021 18:41:29

Good points....I too, wish our model had a bit more prominence in this composition, and not via cropping, but as suggested, taking the shot at a lower height.   Posted: 04/19/2021 06:06:26
