About the Image(s)

At a shopping center I was looking at the curves and lines when these two ladies walked into view. The red worked for me so I took a few with them at different locations on the stairs. Some cropping, vignetting and other fine tuning adjustments in Snapseed was all this needed.

There are so many things that make this a wonderful photo; the various shades of gray to black, sharp focus, the curving staircase, the two ladies walking together in step, there is place ahead for the ladies to walk, and of course the red coat. Sol, you spotted a good scene once again. Keep it up.   Posted: 05/06/2022 10:32:18

The shadows of the women show that you took this image in harsh,nearly mid-day light. Although it is a color image it has the full B&W range from black to white including on the left hand backpack and that bright red to grab the eye. Nice capture!   Posted: 05/06/2022 11:07:41

Sol, great catch. Love the curved staircase, the one girl wearing red and the super light and shadows. Really sharp focus and notice the girls were in step (left/right) like I tried to teach my marching band students to do as a High School Band Director.

Your keen eye and fast reaction was in perfect sink. Bravo Sol! Jerry   Posted: 05/06/2022 14:29:12

This is a nice shot. The curve of the stairs and railings leads the viewer into and through the shot. The inclusion of the humans adds scale, and as Dave mentioned they seem to be synchronized. You probably tried it, but I think I'd be tempted to do a BW version to reduce the impact of the clothing and maybe crop in a little from the left. Either way, nicely seen and captured!

Right place at the right time with phone in hand. Great reaction to capture the action. My first thought was all the leading lines. A simple but impactful image. Well done.   Posted: 05/09/2022 21:56:23

This is an award winning photo. It has all the ingredients for a top prize. You captured the photograph in right moment and bless the teen for her bright red clothing. You should enter it in a contest.   Posted: 05/14/2022 10:38:36
