I received the following positive comment from Josh R http://evilphotoeye.wordpress.com/
For the second shot, I would encourage you to focus more on the two faces and crop/frame out the extra space (especially on top). The faces and expressions are wonderful, that’s what you want the focal point of the image to be
For day three, we want to see your interpretation of water — how might your image reveal more about you?
Tip: Ever wonder whether a photograph will work better horizontally or vertically? It’s a great question to ask when looking through your viewfinder! Humans have binocular vision — which means we have two eyes, adjacent to one another — and naturally scan a scene along a horizontal, rather than vertical, plane.
After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a second shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa. If you’re aiming for an establishing shot, what orientation works better? How does a vertical shot affect your scene? Which version do you prefer?
“…focus on a street. It can be a quiet road in a small town, an alley near your apartment, or a busy street where pedestrians weave between cars and motorbikes, like this scene…” from my neighborhood where people love to walk their dogs every day. My car is parked on the other side of the road, in front of my son’s place!
