Re: street dancer Liverpool 2/6/09

I like it.

That giant woman in the back row is a bit off putting though.

It might be worth cropping some of the top away - about level with the bottom the sign next to the giants elbow.

Think I prefer the b&w version.

Re: street dancer Liverpool 2/6/09

Agree with Phil about the crop and I prefer the colour; did wonder about cropping one side of the other but tried with a piece of paper and it does not work. Realise it may have been a difficult shot to get but it could do with being a bit sharper.

A close up shot of the baby may have been worth a try

Nice one FB - maybe try a slightly slower shutter speed to get some motion?

Re: street dancer Liverpool 2/6/09

I like it - and I prefer colour. I also think the giant woman would work too tryst me to be different! But if she was more in focus, it could have made for a very interesting shot, as it does look like she's watching him!

Re: street dancer Liverpool 2/6/09

this is a great photo and i prefer colour too as the dancer in b&W doesnt stand out !

how about blurring the background just a little to bring the dancer more in focus .
