Direction like the last one you posted, i too can see a couple arguing over the sign thats no longer there.

Fear like the latest edit, you can see all his face now

Direction : It works, the mono treatment suits nicely... good details

Fear : That works really well... a clear sense of fear there

Hi Bob,

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 :)

A Sigh, of despair, added. I hope the downward eye conveys that emotion...bit late this week as had a dose of man flu:)

That works extremely well for me. Lovely image regardless of theme, and I think it is bang on too.

Focus is on the eyebrow whereas it might have been better on the eye(lash), but that's a very minor niggle.

Hi Bob....hope you're recover from the dreaded manflu :)

Fear....like the series of images...conveys the theme well (y) 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 :clap:

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 (y) 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 (y)

Thanks very much for the comments Lynne, must admit I am finding it hard to hit critical focus with the Fuji, can't wait to get the Leica back in that respect.

Hope I can b forgiven with a late one this week, have been away with work so a bit dificult for me...However here goes.......

Hi Bob,

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.

Nick
