One / 42 Revisited

Having commented on the fact that this image was too busy, I had a rethink and cropped the image to pare it down more, and in the process add a bit of tension…. I also had a comment from Jude, who would have cropped differently.

This crop suits my vision….

Contrast & Tension

Contrast & Tension



  1. It’s good, Sue, but then I had no problem with the original. I quite liked the heavy shadows in the wider view, but that’s just me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Sue

      I just thought it needed stripping down….but it’s always interesting to get other views….whether or not we choose to act on them!

  2. That’s what I would have done as well.

  3. Yes. I like this. Better than the way I imagined it. I like the fact you have removed the heavy shadow over the window on the right. He now appears to be walking into the darkness. Much more atmospheric.

  4. For me Sue the stairs in the first photo created a sense of expectation and perhaps distracted from the figure, but as an overall composition, I think I prefer it. I think it’s amazing how a crop can alter not only the image, but also the story. It was a great capture in the first place.

  5. I like this one too, but think the original has more drama going on. 🙂

  6. You’re right about the tension. It works well. Tension isn’t something I consciously think about. I should.

  7. Checked the other one Sue and yes this is a much tighter composition. I like it

  8. Much prefer this one – the clean forms make a very strong composition. Very nice!

  9. Lovely. Great work you’re doing. Well done
