Direction - I definitely like number 2, and I think the way that Dawn has tweaked it is pretty good too. Number 1 for me, brings my eye to the post in the middle of the shot.
Fear - Again I'm reminded of the wife's expression when there's a horror / thriller on the tv. Love it.
Nice start Bob, I really like the edited Direction with the contrast boosted and a nice take on the theme of Fear. I too can't see much of the mouth but I can really see the fear in his eyes which to me works better. Keep it up
Hi Bob....hope you're recover from the dreaded manflu
Fear....like the series of images...conveys the theme well Have viewed them all bigger on flickr & struggle with the focus on most except A or B ? The B&W image you posted large works better...can just make out the mouth but again the slight oofness detracts ( for me anyway) can imagine that if all was nice n sharp it'd be a belting & dramatic image . That said I do like the catch light in the eye
Sigh....this has been possibly the hardest theme I've come across....a difficult emotion to portray in an image ( least I think so )....like your take on it & B&W works well Slight oofness again , more focus to the eye/eyelash & it'd be spot on
I apologise if I sound a tad negative....just saying as I see it...onwards & upwards & look forward to seeing your next 48 weeks
First visit here it's really hard getting around the 50 or-so 52s theres not enough hours in the day. Both Fear and Sigh are very nice indeed and in reading yours (and others) comments I bet you can't wait to crack on with the Leica. Good luck with the rest of your 52.
