Untitled #4

Apart from a little tweaking to the saturation in this image, this is simply a straight shot. One more from the archives as I've had no time to process all the stuff I have. I know more excuses from Jide Alakija, I'll try and put up something lovely tomorrow. I've had a little bit of an exhausting day.

My day: Today was relatively a good day, apart from the aches which were the result of a lot of running around during the wedding, I had a fun time a the Olympians vs Sun Devils game which was the semi final of the Britbowl. The Olympians unsurprisingly won the game and are on their way to this years final once again. Congrats, Os.

Interesting but would have liked to see alittle bit more of the hand and the flute.

In my commentary on Sat I posted a quote by Andre Kertesz, "I just walk around, observing the subject from various angles until the picture elements arrange themselves into a composition that pleases my eye." Interesting food for thought don't you think?

I love the flute! Perhaps because it's what I play smile. I like this shot.

I love the composition and the drop shadow works well. However, that little bit of shade on the end of his nose is really distracting.

I like the shadows in the background, they are a great addition to the shot were he seems wonderfully lost in his playing.

Hey...reading your notes, i can see that youre really busy so forget about the (camera) help i asked for in the text.

Not crazy about this picture..a bit dark for me and not enough expression.
You've put up some really good shots over the last coupleof weeks. Was swamped with work (dissertation) and stuff.

My absolute favourite was the 30th of august..the carnival one with the Wolf. That was really great. When i saw it I thought it looked like something id come across in those Nightingale pictures you showed me a while ago.
