Great Wandering_Dan 2008-12-06 10:09

Hi, Kristaps -

A lot of action in this shot, and I don't think it's distracting. It's quite an intriguing portrait of daily life, and the expression on the old guy in the middle of it all is really something else. After seeing similar expressions on your other shots, I'm starting to think Guatemalans just age that way! I do think it's slightly overbalanced to the left, though the diagonals extending there do counter it somewhat. I don't see that you could have done anything about it, though.

Best,
Dan

Default To Wandering_Dan: mixed feelings

hi Dan
thanks for the kind comment, friend. you're right, the balance is tilted to the left; at the same time 1) i felt i could not do too much about it given the conditions (my subject was clear; and I liked the scene around him too); 2) i felt the lady staring directly at me mischeviously: i felt she added a bit to the ambience.

regards,
kristaps
