About the Image(s)

I took this photo last year in late November. This was at a post election protest in downtown Sacramento California. Protestors were attempting to fight counter protestors. A police line separated both sides and I got a shot of a Sacramento Police Officer addressing one of the protestors on why he wasn't allowed to cross the line. I remember the phrase "this won't happen today" being said by the officer. The shot does focus more on the officer. I did a lot of editing and through some Youtube videos on cinematic photography, I edited the photo with the intent to make it look like it came from a movie. It did require a lot of adjustments in Adobe lightroom.

Sony A7r3, ISO 125, 64mm, f/5.6, 1/100 of a sec.

Great image, would be even better if policeman stood out more from the back ground. I have brushed behind him in Lightroom, to lighten the background a little to separate him more. Also sharped a little more and toned down the noise. What do you think?
