Shopping With Mum by Jill Edwards

May 2020 - Shopping With Mum

About the Image(s)

Shopping with Mum - small town in the hill country of Sri Lanka, amongst the tea plantations. Taken with Fuji XT-20 20mm, f 9, ISO 250, 1/180 sec. Busy back ground, but that is reality in a market town. I loved the big eyes and mum’s love and pride in her daughter.

I think this is an amazing image. I like that you can see all the faces and none of them are blocked. The lighting on the faces of the child and mother is wonderful. I find the background a little busy but not at all distracting, it gives a sense of place. I think you have a beautiful image.   Posted: 05/05/2020 17:55:57

The black and white makes this image by displaying what I see as a timeless moment. I love the composition as well. Very beautiful.   Posted: 05/07/2020 19:36:45

Lovely capture of the woman and child, but I think the image would be stronger with a less distracting background. I had a quick play in PS using the lens blur filter - just a very quick selection and blur of the background (would need a more careful selection/mask to do it properly). What do you think?   Posted: 05/09/2020 18:35:13

Thanks Geoff I only have LR. I darkened off the back ground and brightened the woman and child to try and address that issue. I am unsure whether the blurring helps, interested to hear what others think.   Posted: 05/10/2020 08:52:09

Wow! Those eyes just pop and drag you into the picture! The clarity is awesome. and the background does a great job of setting the stage. Here face is strong enough to override any distractions in the image. Very nice capture!
