The posure of the kid is allright, the surrounding is overcluttered. You could pay some more attention to let away distracting details.
Of course I sympathize with your stride against PhotoShop, but always keep the viewer in mind. Cutting away the superfluous isn’t exactly photoshopping, is it?
Go on with your good work!
Heya C. – Thanks for your comment. I really like the messy-ness around the child…you’ll find it in many images of mine. The details make the eye wander around, the viewer takes a stroll through the image and come back here and than to the bright yellow spark in the middle. check out the Archive and you might find out what I mean. Some of the things have been carefully put there by the way (plates on the bottom of the frame, guitar, postcards, stack of wood in the background…) I always try to find the right mix of adding detail and still giving each shot a snapshot – out-of-life feel. Like in 50ies to 80ies US street photography, which I admire a lot. Painters did this cluttering often to add symbol and story to their works. I like it a lot. But I love to hear other opinions and see the exchange flow…so: thanks for adding your voice!
haha! I love this pic! And the light flow on yellow! and guitar and postcards on the walls
