About the Image(s)

I took this with my Mavic DJI Pro, it is a frame capture from a short video. The final version has been cropped quite a bit from the original. Once I cropped the original, the version I attached, I made a few more modifications. There is a light post and lights obscuring the first vendor which I removed in Photoshop. I also did away with the yellow sign in the lower right because I thought it was distracting.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

Nice composition and story in the image. Colors work good. Nicely done.   Posted: 11/03/2021 14:09:58

There is a lot to look at in this image. If you are trying to tell the story about the vendors, I would have cropped in even tighter. I suspect you are running out of pixels, but maybe Photoshop's new Supersize might mitigate that. I am impressed with how well you were able to remove the lap post.   Posted: 11/17/2021 22:12:48

Thanks Don, I agree with your comments. Truthfully, I am not sure what story I was trying to tell, I think I just thought the image looked good. I have some other views, perhaps I will take your advice and submit another view in the future.   Posted: 11/19/2021 06:28:03

I am afraid that my images often do not tell a "story" either. I just like the colors or some other aspect. As they say, art is in the eyes of the beholder. :-)   Posted: 11/19/2021 09:34:52

True. Some times just pleasing or interesting is enough.   Posted: 11/20/2021 08:58:33

I like this image, it has a lot of shapes, lines and angles that are interesting. But since it is vendor booths, I feel like I need to see the people who are going to frequent this area. And of course, I would love to see it all squared off in my style of shooting.   Posted: 11/21/2021 16:24:12

I have some images in a more square format, I just liked the angles here. I said vendors but I am not sure what is going on, it was early in the morning and after the baseball season. I think the people may have just been moving stuff from point A to point B. The blue tents are covering picnic tables way in the outfield at the Mud Hens ball park.   Posted: 11/22/2021 07:06:34
