About the Image(s)

The photo was taken in Stone Town, several years ago. It was taken with Nikon D5, 80-200mm lens at 150mm f6.3 640iso. The image was opened in Lightroom, after basic adjustment, it was converted to B/W.
The appealing part of the the image was the shadows, and the texture of the wall behind them.

Another of your super people shots.

The shadows are great and the action is very well captured.   Posted: 07/09/2021 01:34:03

HI Paul: It's easy to tell these youngsters were having fun... playing in the water wearing their street cloths... The white wall seems to take up a lot of real-estate in the image... just thinking out loud and wondering if a slight vignette might help to tone that down a bit? The lads seem to be running up hill and perhaps some straightening might help?   Posted: 07/10/2021 17:57:31

Paul- another super people image caught at exactly the right moment. I love the interplay between the boys and their shadows on the textured white wall. I don't have an issue with the amount of white wall - the balance is about right   Posted: 07/13/2021 07:29:02

Hello Paul. The shadows on the textured wall make the image in my mind. Good timing. Wonderful job in seeing this composition and choosing the right moment.   Posted: 07/15/2021 12:46:55

Thank you for your comment Stephen. I don't mind your interpretation. I guess, most of us feel movements should go from left to right, similar to how we read most languages? U   Posted: 07/21/2021 19:22:02
