Good erthmuffin 2006-05-08 13:13

i liked this from the thumbnail and when i opened it i was a little disappointed with the composition. i really like the idea and especially the lines from the floor. would you mind if i played with it in a workshop?

some people absolutely hate this, but i think it'd look good to cut the top of the picture at shoulder level so you can't see any faces, it'd focus more on the floor and make you wonder what is going on and what they're waiting for. just my thought, since the floor is so interesting and nobody is doing anything particularly interesting.

i actually played around with it but i didn't post it to a workshop cause i wasn't totally pleased with it. i can post what i have, but i feel something is missing. at least you can see what i sort of had in mind.

I can see what you are trying, and I like the radical crop but I agree that it looses much in that kind of crop. it has to have something really dynamic to sustain that kind of crop i think.

The people doing nothing and talking on the phone is what i was going for in this shot. I don't know that I am overly happy with it, but I think as a part of the series it works better. I dont think it works alone that well.

I appreciate your workshop. thanks for taking the time with it. talk to you soon
