I wish the horizon was straight and a 50mm lens had been on the camera. This wide angle lens didn’t do much good for the photo.. anyway, nice catch and light situation.
Thanks for the critics, I tried shooting it with my fixed 35mm (which ends up being a 50 on the 7D) but could not find the right way of composing the shot by getting all the bank, the buildings, and the skaters silhouette in the sky, I’ll have too look harder next time. May bad with the horizon really.
I appreciate you gave your opinion.
I don’t see anthing wrong with the wide angle choice. You could have shot it a little bit tighter to get rid of the lightpost in the right hand corner and the building on the left side.
right now everything is a bit tilted/twisted by disortion. it’s kinda important to keep the camera level when you shoot wide angle and want background building/lightpoles/ etc. looking normal
I did a super fast edit just to show you what I mean. I hope that it doesn’t offend you
http://fragmentsfromlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/1247.jpg the disortion is still there but i rotated the picture 5,5 degrees to get it somewhat straight
I really like this, the straightening up and removal of the right/left sides take away from the shot IMO. Did you take any where you didn’t cut the top of the building out?
the buildings pretty tall, if I remeber correct.
Thanks for your feedback guys!
Lucas don’t know why but I’m not convinced by that rotation, I like how on the original the right limit of the building is straigt with the frame. About the crop getting rid of the lightpost from the right does do good.
Leej like antton said the building is quite tall, at least to frame it with out a fisheye I haven’t got.
I actually like the crooked angle. Even though it throws off the vertical lines, I think it gives a more dynamic composition than the straight one.
Thanks @jamesmorley :)
Nice available light..
