[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I recently attended an "Art Crawl" in which a number of local artists set up at a local park to show their talents and maybe to sell a little of their artwork. This gentleman was talking with a customer while he painted.

Shot in manual mode and hand held. I cropped a little bit from the bottom of the photo.

Hello Bill, there is plenty of colour and human interest in this shot but there are also a distraction. Consequently the shot loses out. I have taken the liberty of preparing a workshop to show the positive change that can result from removal of the distraction. Computer programs have a lot to offer in terms of improving the shots that we take.

not easy to pass by a photo of an artist's passion; here we feel it speaks with passion and it was more fun to admire his work ...
However, we do not see in the foreground the back of his interlocutor then right patchworks of another exhibitor, I am allowed a WS; also can be a step at right to see a little more the interlocutor would have been better?
it remains that this colorful photo is very nice and makes us share the festive mood of the day

Hi Bill

Well focused and well exposed, but I'm unsure what you want the viewer to look at. There seems to be no focal point, I don't know whether you want me to look at the artist, the artwork, the customer...

Those artist fairs are very useful for art collectors as well as artists. We have them here in Las Vegas with some devoted to photography. Nice capture of this scene with good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

  • Great
