Montego Bay #7 - Beauty Queen

Post by minniev »

Trying Jamaica's streets in black and white. In case you're wondering what I took a picture of, I liked the shadow...

Maybe featuring it a bit more loses to much ambiance.....

Thanks Frank. I actually cropped one similarly to this before going back to the kitchen sink. I agree it is probably a better image this way.
(But you know me, I liked the motorcycle, I liked the sign advising me not to leave my boys or dogs or whatever it is overnight, etc etc )

But I think it is. The image is too contrasty to provide the detail I'd want in street images that are about the people individually, so it has to rest on the structure and form of things more. I probably will want to crop more than I did originally to hone in on that main figure/shadow, but find a way to keep the Beauty sign, or enough of it, in there, because its irony is part of what caught my attention.

I'm inclined to prefer your original image, kitchen sink and all.

Why?

Because of the partial car in the crop, it does nothing for the picture and tends to draw the eye out of the frame. In your original, the motorcycle and the car frame the subject thus taking the eye to the person. It's more balanced.

Thanks Graham, I see your point. Wisdom from the Master of Street!

The shadow and surrounding elements make for a fine street shot, Minnie. I know you have more.

I wish I'd been able to spend more time wandering but cruises don't offer much time on the shore, my biggest beef with them.

It's amazing how quickly the crop changes the story. S-
