The first round of the Digital Image League at Bracknell Camera Club in the 2021-22 season. During the week before the competition the number of entries allowed was opened up and an extra image was allowed. My second image was only a few days old as we were away in Cornwall and was shot using my iPhone and edited on the iPhone.
Careful where you sit!
At the end of the Streetsnappers workshop around the South Bank and the West End we were walking through Soho towards the Strand and I spotted this girl sitting under large adverts eating her lunch.
… I do like street photography
… I like this, it doesn’t have to be in black and white, it is in colour, but it is a very good picture of this young lady sitting down very much involved with her phone
… but you have actually seen something more into it which is the hanging down legs and the different colours
… so I think that is quite a good photograph, quite well seen and well produced
Engine houses of the Crown Mine
Our cottage was only a 10 minute walk away from the remains of the Crown Mine. As we explorer the weather turned and we were in the rain. I grabbed this image using my iPhone 12 Pro. I edited it using the apps on the phone and only used Photoshop on my laptop to size the image.
… if you see the winding tower the rocks go into the sea there, and there’s another set of rocks which are very black.
…I felt that, well it is only a third of the picture but it is slightly annoying, the rest is sea. I would have liked to have had a different rendition of this
… Ok, have it blackish, black or less black, I wanted to see a bit more sharpness in the buildings and in the rocks
… I wasn’t there so I do not know what the situation was with the sky, the sun or no sun but I just felt that it could have had a bit more with it
Well I’ve given it 8.5 so might say why have I given all that comment? !
