    I like the clarity and tone from this film Miguel.
    Excellent candid and I like the subject against the background of the sea.
    Have a nice day!

    Mohd Ridzuan Ahmad I like your proposed framing, and thought about why I didn't do it (as the photo is unedited and uncropped) but I prefer to look at the way the old man's presence is diminished by the immense ocean.
    Jusni Nasirun Thanks, I enjoyed taking this candid.. The old man didn't notice; he was just having a good time doing some light reading.

    excelente, gosto muito do enquadramento.
  • Kees Van Mansom PRO 4y

    Great scene, I don't like to crop in photos so I would leave it as it is. You can avoid these kind of discussions about cropping by putting the subject next time a bit out of the center, for instance on 1/3th. Love the overall atmosphere and colours.

    I've been framing this with my hands a bit, and also imaging it as a square, I'd say the central position is best here. It'd be 'the sea and the old man' otherwise, already from the title that wouldn't make sense anymore. :)
  • Miguel Pires da Rosa 4y

    Kees Van Mansom I must say I usually do that placing of the subject to the corner of the frame, and although I admit this time the centering was unintentional, I liked the result as it makes it seem like the man is being engulfed by that blue sky and sea.

    pim (pimbert) rdwrt My thoughts exactly, the sea would gain a lot more "presence" if the man was to the side. One way or the other, I'm already happy that people have an opinion on this photo :)

    a foto tem muito mais força com este enquadramento, do que com os terços. é assim, quando existem vários elementos a compor (paisagem), os terços conferem mais força à imagem. esta situação exige o que foi feito. explora mais este enquadrar no meio. ;)
  • Miguel Pires da Rosa 4y

    Frederico Malaca Confesso que não sabia pôr o dedo no que difere em uma situação pedir um enquadramento central e a regra dos terços, era mais inconsciente para mim, mas o que dizes faz sentido e concordo em absoluto que havendo um número maior de elementos pede a lei dos terços e aqui sendo mais minimalista o enquadramento central é melhor:) Estou a gostar deste conceito de enquadramento, vou investir mais nisto! Obrigado pelos comentários:)
