Open - I like the levitating glue, I agree it is a shame you chopped the end off but good focus on the leaked glue.
Distant - I like the last one best too, the sky is a great colour and I like the foot prints
Cold - I love the colour of the sky, can't decide if I prefer the original or the the crop better, I like both

Cold
It looks cold and sort of warm with the warm colours in sky. I think the cropped version works it bit better.
Thank you!
I like the cropped version, even the sky has a cold look to it, composition works really well for the theme.
Thanks Susie!
Hi Daniel,

The crop for Cold is the one for me. No distracting lines and lovely colours.
Cheers Lee!

Week 6 - Waiting


This was a bit of a gun and run this week, as it was by the off chance I was walking near the station and there is a bridge over the road at a level crossing, a train had just gone actually so I was expecting no-one to be stood at the platforms edge however I caught this lady standing there in a red jacket and took a few shots.

I wanted this image where the platform edge would lead you into the photo and fortunately there were quite a few leading lines to her which helped greatly!

I really like this one. Maybe the sky and even the bridge are not necessary(?) as for me all the interest is in the bottom half. At first I thought it was an example of selective colouring as the red jacket really stands out, but then I saw the yellow line and the green weeds. Perfect for the theme.

Like it, i like the tones and mood of the image. The lady's jacket really stands out. I agree about perhaps cropping the sky out, but that'ts only as my web browser wasn't at full size and initially didn't see the sky. Great work!

Thanks Bob, I did think about a good old selective colour but in the end I don't think it needed it!
Great image, the colour really sets it off and I like the candid style, but i'd agree that a crop to take the sky out may work better (just my opinion).
Cheers Jim!

I like the sky, it provides mood, the red coat and yellow line really make this pop.
Thanks Ian!
I agree with Ian, the sky adds to the pic with the colours below
Cheers Chris (y)

Quite a lot of train / station shots this week ;)
Don't be afraid to crop. I don't think you need the full portrait version of the shot and whilst you have an angry sky, it doesn't really add much.
I would crop half way into the bridge (so you can still see the head of the person walking across - hmm actually maybe a little higher) and up a little from the bottom. Almost a square crop in-fact.

Agreed here too, the inclusion of the sky and the bridge help the image as does the tall crop....draws the eye nicely.
The colour treatment here is top notch too, the red is brilliant!
And she is standing in a little patch of well lit platform....almost a spotlight....perfect framing.
Very nice work Daniel!(y)
Cheers Gareth! The fact this was all a bit of a rush job actually turned out ok, right time, right place as they say!
Very nice shot, the red coat sets it off nicely. :)
Thanks Rick (y)
Gotta love a red jacket - and a nice pool of light to draw the eye in - works for me!
Cheers Dave (y)

I know, I was afraid of this!! Thanks Tim, I might go back and take a look at a square crop!
Waiting. Nice image, i like the darkness to it and the woman in the red coat really draws the eye.
Cheers Rob!

Tested out the square crop, I'm not sure about it personally, I still think the sky adds something to the image!

What a great image this is for the theme, it reminds me a bit of the little girl in red from Schindler`s List if you just had the ladies coat in colour.
Thanks Dave! Yes you're right, probably one of those rare times you can get away with selective colour!

It is a great sky, Daniel, but I'm not sure you need it. My first thought was that it might suit a square crop and I see that had been discussed and tried. I think you could take even more off the top as all the interest is in the woman in the red coat, the yellow lines and the other leading lines in the frame, but it's your image. If it was mine I'd probably crop at about the halfway level in the white panels and a little off the bottom too :) All of that aside, it's a great spot and a perfect fit for the theme (y)
