The subject here is a bit confusing. Is it the girl? If so, the issue here is the rider in front of you is too distracting and the girl is looking away and framed very akwardly. The frame is dominated by the other rider and the wall. Also, I'm not sure B&W worked well here - it's a very 'flat' image with little contrast.

It's a difficult jump to go from taking snaps to making photographs. You have to ask what is it about a subject that is compelling and capture that 'thing'. And, as mentioned in the other post, making a good photograph is as much about what you leave out as what you bring in.

I would highly recommend grabbing a book from the library or book store that talks about composition. Some people have a natural artistic concept of composition. Others, like me, have to learn it and work at it since it doesn't come naturally.

thank you,again.


it is actually from a video i did, ella fitzgerald and 'angel eyes'.

a frame grabbed.

i personally like this set up.

but then tastes run this way and that. i must admit, it would have been nice, if the wall suppports weren't in the way.
