    • Thank you. Mike was concentrating on getting that plane to fly and not crash. It did that with a loop or two. It was going too fast to capture it in flight. Thanks for your comment.


  1. Hi Tim. Reporting for duty…..
    Very good exposure that balance the light, particularly on the face, against the sky. Interesting use of depth of field, leaving the arm slightly out of focus. I might have given a fraction more on the left hand side to express the potential of the implied flight of the paper plane. Alternately you could have cropped off half of the space on the right and and fraction off the top to maintain the proportion (or even a little more to create some spacial tension for the implicit movement). This is a very nice mono and the patterned shirt gives animation. I might have experimented with a little more blur on the trees just to see if it worked….it might not. Sometimes…..no that’s not true, …. often, I will use a vignette to very slightly darken the edges, though in this image it might only be useful in the top right sky area, so a vignette on a new layer then remove it from the other corners…..possibly.
    The viewpoint certainly helps to make this an uncluttered scene…….a pretty girl next time, Tim?
    …..so do I get the job, or was this ramble a step too far?


    • Thank you so much. Your explanation is not too long. I agree on the placement of image. That is definitely an at the time shooting decision. It’s good to be reminded of that. So much to think about but should become a habit when shooting. I’ll look at the vignette issue. It makes a lot of sense.

      I’ll be pleased to return the critic of your work, if you like. It is good practice for me as well. Let me know if there is a particular image you would like for me to look at.

      Thanks again, John.


    • Thank you. My brother-in-law seems to enjoy designing such things. It may have something to do with his mathamatical training or a rebellion against it. Creativity creeping in.
