fantastic play on shpes and form in this shot. b&w matches this shot perfectly. Love it. Ony thing i could possibly suggest is maybe try a sharper angle so that the table and chair arrangement fall on the 1st 3rd mark, maybe even use ps to straighten the umbrella and if your really into it maybe a more organised arrangement at that table. I think it will play up the symmetry in the foreground.

great shot

Hi Madda,

I think the advice and comments made by Ken are good (as per usual). I think it's a very interesting and "catchy" shot! Well done!

The most important things I would change (to be picky) would be to move the table and chairs (and straightened umbrella) to the LEFT a bit, so they would fall in the left third of the photo, leaving some blank space between them and the sun-chairs / lounge chairs.

The shadows and patterns work very well for this type of photo in Black and White! But I would be interested (as always) to see a colour version too (did you convert it in black and white FROM colour?)

Good work... nice shot.

Paul

The original....it is in color....but the effect is completely different.



In my opinion the B/W change a normal shot into a beautiful shot...

Thanks for posting the original colour shot Madda.

I agree the b&w photo is better in this instance. I actually find the blue sky especially distracting to the patterns / composition. But in the b&w the sky is ok.

Thanks for being helpful. Still a great shot!

Paul

I agreewith paul here, the B&w was a great choice for this shot. Couldnt resist a quick play to strraighten tht umbrella just to see how it looks, Hope you dont mind
