Too boring isn't it, the original does give me a headache, but I am committed to get a great photo out of those stairs really soon.
I like that one you just posted better, because the angle isnt as drastic and its white balanced. I think having that mind set of your going to get a great photo out of something is great and I respect that alot, but I think that stair well is cockeyed enough and it has enough weird @#%$ going on that you can shoot it straight portrait portion (maybe cropped square) people are all about golden rectangles and the square gets overlooked a lot it creates a beautiful tension.
Looking back at the your previous work I really like Subway Hall to Path Train to NYC
thats a great photo, once you get a great photo out something you should expand on that idea and build it in to something. Snap shots are great but series or bodies of work are even better.
And todays new ones, I'm not sold on. the last ones had some heat today I'm like eh.. the signage one, its a @#%$ ridiculous sign, and I've never seen anything like that in my life, but still, its got very little going on as far as depth of feild and its oldly composed and the manikins i would say basically the same..
I like the idea. similar to berlskee
latest photo. That being said I think its cropped oldly, you cut off alot of stuff. like both lamps and the two framed (what I'm guessing are prints). It's the same overt symmetry as berlskee
, but there is alot going on yours where as his kind of plays into it with more subtle details. Like I think if you composed the shot outside the two lamps and the frames it would be composed well but I think I would feel like there is too much going on. If I had to choose asymmetry vs symmetry it would be asymmetry in a heart beat and I think this photo exhibits why, I suppose if its about that overt symmetry then just zoom out or back up, but I think you it lessens it as portraiture when if you get all that stuff in not cropped off...
