Just wanted to share my updated version of the 50 things challenge after Will Terry's critique.
This is the original:
And these where the comments:
- Needs some more bigger objects - could make tank bigger and box at the front.
- Think about reducing the contrast at the edges away from the focal point
- Don't be afraid to cover what you have done and make big changes if something isn't working (I find this hard once I have the values laid down!)
- Think about the storytelling in every part of the image. Thinking about what the figure on the left is doing and can it be more interesting than walking.
These are all great points and things I will remember for next images.
Another thing I noticed is that because it was a complicated image I spent a long time on it and therefore got bored of the image. Anyone else get this issue and struggle to do the final push that makes the image work and really sort out the detail?
Think I might have to work on two images separately at different stages to try to help with this.
So I updated the image based on the feedback and it now looks like this:
I do like it a lot more now but want to force myself to take it a little bit further so will do some more tweeks.
