Bringing kinja into focus, one frame at a time

For him to critique. He is a film photographer. He has been taking and developing his own photos for more than 40 years, but only as a hobby. Here is what he had to say about them:

Nice symmetry. Could use a bit more sidewalk on the bottom edge to undergird and support the building. Clouds on the top add a great deal. A clear sky is seldom interesting.

You caught the car at a nice angle to those parked, and to the patterns of the building windows and the stripes on the pedestrian crosswalk. However, the bottom line here is that this is but a photo of an undistinguished white car.

The juxtaposition of the two cars was caught just right. The red one really dominates the photo. But again — just a picture of two cars — not of particular interest to many people.

The reflection on the trunk top steals the show here. The fact that the car is a Jaguar is irrelevant photographically. I've taken several shots of the rear ends of cars, but that was because I found interest in their unusual bumper stickers.

Here, for me, the tilted stop sign steals the show rather than an undistinguished black car. Why have you limited your photos to cars driving by?

Now, here is a very interesting shot! The circle, the curve, the relationship of the two, the reflections, and the unusual, and certainly beautiful, coloration throughout, make this an outstanding photo There is nothing static about this still image, as there often is with a frozen shot of a car in motion. This is my favorite of the eight.

Great capture of the clouded sky Also, the slanted perspective on the motel sign works just right. For me, the black and white version appears a bit more dynamic than the colored one. Well composed photo!
