I dont see any sorrow here ? I see a woman who is yawning because she's apparently tired.
I also see some very burned out places where there is no detail left, may i assume this was somewhat overexposed ?
Sorry, for me the image conveys no sorrow but indeed a yawn. There are a few burnt areas but this can sometimes be overlooked in images of this genre. The car bonnet just coming into view is very damaging to the feel of the image and the roofline just popping into view is annoying/distracting. I wonder if this image has been supplied with obvious points just to get us started ;0)
Hmm, this one doesn't really work for me. Sorry, Dirk...
I don't see the story in it, too many elements without clear connection that we can't really see what the situation is. It might work as a part of a serie, but not as "standalone"...
Dirk, that car is a bloody niusance! I would have changed the perspective, got closer to the woman and shorten the DoF on the man in the background... that's all this pic needs but, as it stands, it's a wasted opportunity;-)
To get the true feeling of this shot, we would need another clue; like the paw of an animal coming out from under the cover for instance. I don't mind all the other elements in the shot as they describe the social status of the couple. The overexposure hurts my eyes. Close, but no silver dollar for this one.
I agree the roof line needs to go...It also needs something to give it a little more depth. Seems a little flat. Not sure about the lady and the emotion...it does look like sadness to me and the gentleman in the background seems to be looking at her with her concern...or is he looking at Dirk and his camera with concern. Not one of your best shots after looking at your others..but does make one think of stories that could go with it.
how can you really tell she is yawning 100%? you cant tell........
in my opinion this photo tells me that she is either yawning yes maybee.....but also crying or worried or thinking? how can i say really whats she is feeling.
i can see a man tieing something down, maybee a storm is coming? maybee life is just hard, looking at the old concrete house and the run down car in the foreground, i like the overexposed bits, it gives it rawness.
great texture and reality
i see the sorrow but it can be also a cough or a sneeze ... :) indeed the surroundings makes you think she s complaining or crying..
it s an interesting picture otherwise, makes you think what was happening to that woman at the time the picture was made...
technically seen this a near to perfect picture, all clearly to be seen and in focus. what i asking me whether it's interesting or attractive enough in an aspect that i feel it's worth to show it here. i am not so sure about this. somehow i miss a connection between the two people to make a story out of it. quite attractive looks the man in front of the window. if he would stand more to the left and still more distant to the window i would see a possible interesting picture just of him with the window out of focus and naturally without all this disturbing unattractive garbage to the right.
in my opinion the best in this situation to get an impressive picture would be a strong portrait of the interesting looking face of the man including all or a good part of his sombrero, background just the out of focus simple wall. another good portrait also could be possible of the woman after she finished yawning :-).
To get an acceptable picture including both persons i support the suggestions of frank cecconi and waiting for the right moment.
You have so many beautiful and constructive comments to this shot... I have to agree with most of thea and to tell you that I love the composition,the moment and the espression on that woman's face... very sugestive. Great b/w.
Best regards, Antonia
C'mmon guys. She's not yawning. She's sneezing! :)))))Just kidding.
My monitor must be really an old technology - I can't see any overexposed areas mentioned above. To me the picture is not bad - but seems to lack a focus. These two : the woman and the man are somehow incompatible in their emotional states. The guy is clearly looking -straight into the camera... and the woman... is...whatever she's doing. I think, I would make 2 shots out of this one. Woman and the car - 1 editing cut (the broken car will add drama to her otherwise "yawning" gesture) - and the guy with his curious look - the other.
