the green grass is pulling my eye away from the subject.
04/21/2002 12:21:00 AM
I'm not sure I get it.
04/20/2002 04:09:00 PM
Some thought to composition may have helped.
04/19/2002 03:19:00 PM
Motion is stopped in this shot but the shot itself is not grabbing attention to the man's motion. Perhaps if he was walking further away from the cars and you were zoomed in more it would of conveyed the stop motion concept.

More excitement needed.
04/19/2002 02:58:00 AM
not very stop-action and subject could be more emphasised?
04/19/2002 01:28:00 AM
i'd try to get his feet off the bottom edge of the picture, and is that the reflection of a tripod I see? :)
04/18/2002 01:34:00 PM
composition could be better, those cars are really distracting
04/18/2002 01:26:00 PM
Nothing about this picture does it for me, sure he's walking but thats only because of a motion trail, other wise I would have thought maybe you told him to put his foot up to give the appearance that he was walking the cars on bottom are upsetting. next time get closer and have both feet in the air that would make a believable stop motion

I *know* you could have found a more interesting subject than this! don't just accept what's outside your apartment window, actually go out into the world!
04/18/2002 07:42:00 AM
The cars at the bottom of the picture are distracting, this looks just like a quick shot out of the window to me, sorry. A different angle, and maybe the person more close-up would have helped me.

A setting is crucial for any photograph -- but this one has too many competing elements.
04/17/2002 04:05:00 PM
I'd prefer this if it was either centred on the walker, or with him just about the leave the frame. Pity the cars are in shot.
04/17/2002 03:36:00 PM
IMO, there is too much stuff in this picture. Maybe focusing on just the man would've been mire effective. Are the diagonal lines on the road, or are they relflections or glare?
04/17/2002 10:02:00 AM
Good focus, not well centered.
04/17/2002 08:16:00 AM
motion needs to be faster for my vote. Also a rather uninteresting scene
04/16/2002 06:32:00 PM
The angle of the shot and the backs of the two parked cars detract from the shot.
04/16/2002 02:56:00 PM
not much effort gone into this one.
04/16/2002 01:25:00 PM
Kind of boring picture. Feet are a bit blurry. ??motion not stopped??
04/16/2002 06:03:00 AM
Yep, you can tell he's moving. Just not real interesting. Placement of subject lacks also.
04/15/2002 08:36:00 PM
Not too much stopped motion here.
04/15/2002 05:39:00 PM
lacks imagination
04/15/2002 03:11:00 PM
this is brilliant. if those cars weren't there, i'd give you a 10. this guy is the epitome of all that is good and right in this world.
04/15/2002 10:47:00 AM
The surroudings are too cluttered for this to really stand out. You've cropped his feet a bit too.
04/15/2002 10:08:00 AM
Looks like slow motion to me :) The cars are rather distracting.
04/15/2002 09:50:00 AM
looks like you were nearly as desparate as I was to capture something moving
04/15/2002 09:38:00 AM
not much action here, cropping is off as well
04/15/2002 09:35:00 AM
He's moving alright... It's ashame that his left foot appears to have a little motion blur. Since the man walking is the subject of your photo, I would like to have seen him taking up much more of the frame. These cars need to be gone or be more dominant in the photo as well. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but are you shooting this photo through a window? I see two lines moving from the bottom top of this photo... The first one is in front of the man passing under his chin and the second is leaving from the rear corner of the SUV... both carry over into the grass. Are these possibly refelctions from inside the window?
04/15/2002 08:50:00 AM
i really don't like this. there is almost no motion, and the lack of a central focal point or symettry really takes away from the picture.
04/15/2002 07:31:00 AM
The main subject isn't the main focus of your picture. Maybe a close up with not so many other objects in your picture would make this a much better capture:)
04/15/2002 03:32:00 AM
a bit dull.
