About the Image(s)

A friend and I were heading to the Holocaust Museum in Miami. When we were unable to get near it due to a Peruvian Election, we wound up on Lincoln Road just doing some street photography and I came across this fellow. I cropped it a bit and using Topaz filters, enhanced the coloring, contrast and saturation a bit.

A very nice street image, but I feel it could use some more cropping. I would crop the man out on the right side and the Stone on the left side. The image looks sharp and the colors look fine.   Posted: 07/04/2021 15:56:30

Bev, this is a really nice street shot. I like all the soft colors and the trees in the background. I agree that the man on the right should be cropped out, and maybe part of the ATM.

Great street shot although it looks like he's on a rim of a swimming pool. I agree with Stu about cropping it more but otherwise like it.   Posted: 07/05/2021 10:44:55

I like the storytelling nature of this image and agree re. the crop. Street Photography is always tricky because of the busy backgrounds but I think taking the guy on the right out of the image serves it well.   Posted: 07/05/2021 17:49:40

Nice shot. I agree about the crop to isolate the subject. Another thought might be to move to the right and shoot down a bit more.   Posted: 07/05/2021 21:58:36

I totally agree with everyone about the crop. It is a very interesting photo the color saturation was good. Think I liked Stuart's crop the best.   Posted: 07/06/2021 10:15:54

Hi Bev, probably, Miami is shattering heat records nowadays and he's napping peacefully under trees; but, aren't sun rays warming the stone bench?

Anyway, I did not prefer to crop the stone on the left side; but remove so I kept the roots of tree in frame.

What I re-edited in PS are; rotation, brightness, highlights, contrast, midtone contrast, tonal width.

Thanks for sharing.   Posted: 07/31/2021 03:56:58
