This is fantastic....the poster, the bicycle, the buildings, the crowds turned their back to us, every detail (even the word PARK at roof of the building). It makes you think about the cities, the people, the ralationships in our society. I like the BW photography, so to me it is more than great! Well done!8 April 2015
I've watched this image since you posted it - waiting, waiting, waiting for someone else to reply... BUT, several days later? There is no reply, so I'll take this one on....Helpful 1 22 March 2015
You eye for composition is simply outstanding! And that you dared to do this in monochrome/B&W makes it even better. When I first saw the thumbnail image - I was instantly brought into inspecting your image a bit closer - which is exactly what make a great image, isn't it?
The centerpiece is the person with the monocul (whether really on the poster, or "dropped in") is in excellent definition and focus, who is surrounded by blurred figures passing by. I understand what your message is in your image - and it is well executed - especially with the bicycle rider - just off the subject, but leading my eye into it.
Again - my opinion is simply "superb" execution...
A couple of things for your consideration...
Left side. What would happen if you cropped a bit from the left? Lose the dark building and curb to the turn in of the curb. Watch what happens. See it? Yes - the poster moves directly into the left 1/3rd - and we lose visual distractions on the left side of the frame... BUT - we didn't lose any impact of the visual queues nor the subject...
I will also say that the top, bottom and right crops - are outstanding as they are... Some might say that the right could be a bit tighter, but? I don't think so. The "half-person" at the right crop line is a "throw-away", and that it blends in tone - and is just fine.
This is a wonderful image at several levels.
Nicely done, Jan...
