(March 2020, before Covid-19 lockdown)
I spent about 30 minutes choosing my angle, without the camera to my
eye, before quickly grabbing the shot when the time was right.
I liked the overall balance of the scene, the shapes, lines and reflections
splitting the frame into distinct tonal areas. I tried to compose the
shot so they guided the eye around the frame towards the people, hopefully
settling for long enough on the central guy to discover on closer inspection
he is watching back.
As this is too small an image to properly see his eyes I have added
closer crops... please use the arrow under the image to see them. I
like the second image (crop 1), perhaps even more than the main image,
as it is more direct to the heart of the scene, so holds more initial
impact. I did wonder whether this should be my final version but decided
the wider view held more long term interest, growing on me the longer
I thought about it.
The closer crops also show the noise in the image, not at all unattractive
to my eyes.
Thanks for looking.
