PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

First of all Thank you Frank for a great class and your great comments, support and enthusiasm!  It has been a wonderful learning experience.  Not only do I think differently when shooting, I also see my previous images in a whole new way.    I can only wish that you will have more classes!  (hopefully editing?  :)

And thank you all for your feedback - it is great to have your comments!   I have not had much time this past week but still want to reply to each of your comments individually, apply your suggestions and have a look at your last sets of images!  (I wish we continued having a regular group like this andthat all of you who have been mostly involved in this class had the chance to join us on the NY walk..)

Here is my last set, focusing on silhouettes, contrast, lines, balance.   As always, I greatly appreciate any comments/suggestions you may have - Many thanks!!

I often find myself having a hard time choosing "the best" image..  In this case which of the versions above works best? vertical vs horizontal and withing the horizontal, darker stripe on the left to balance the lamp (#2) color or all darker tripes (#1).

TREE LINES - horiz #2//

(slightly wider) - this one gives a better idea but the previous one seems to work better?

TREE LINES - vertical//

[(Re)com]posing - image 12 - student project

(better vertical?)

(I loved the delicate light at the "rim" but don't really know how to make it work without making the whole image too dark - any suggestions?.. thank you!)

Thank you very much!

(they are a few as I was trying slightly different variations to understand what works best..).

Cheers everyone!  I will miss this class..

GEOMETRY & LINES MODULE

I love this component of composition!..   Although it was at first hard to try to "fish" lines when intentionally looking for them, I realised it is something I have always been attracted to - also the illusion between 3D in 2D illusion.

Looking forward to keeping praticing!

And I look forward to checking everyone's images for this module and add (hopefully valuable) comments.

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions!

COMPOSITION MODULE

This was a great first class, Frank - Thanks!

I found it really useful the exercise of both starting to shoot keeping these concepts in mind, and also going back to other pictures and re-analyse/improve them.

Uploading a few where I tried to frame/place correctly the main subject of the photograph and would definitely welcme any feedback

- thank you! :)
