[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caught this moment a while a go, I think this 3 piece composition is interesting, although the aperture is not the most appropriate.
What do you think?

On PP: Lightroom - tried a lot of color aproaches but did not like the result, so I settled for sepia; lighten up the three subjects a bit for them to stand out.

Hi, Lauro. A lovely composition in the sepia tone and the photo is divided into neatly in three compartments. In the foreground the sleeper looks interesting. In the background cross attract attention. It would be nice if you put the original in the workshop for comparision. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Lauro

I think the f/stop is fine, unless you only wanted to highlight the young sleeper only. But your image has plenty to study, such as the cross, the ferry, and it's direction of travel. interesting image as well as question. I will do a workshop to give you another POV.


Hello Lauro,
The aperture is not far off the mark either, if at all. This really is an unusual image and very interesting indeed. For me the composition is excellent and the image leaves a lot to the imagination, which is what art should be about. Perhaps cropping off a little of the sky would enhance its effectiveness even more. Very well seen and captured.

I thought I would have a go with your colour image Lauro. I find the sepia does add a bit of sharpness to the image, esp' on the sleeper, boat & statue, which I could not match in the coloured version. I thought your original colour image was just a tad flat, so did a few tweeks with levels, dodge tool & copy & pasting. It is not as good as your Sepia but I think it may compete well against your coloured version, fun trying things out.
