    Daily life in the suk

    When I came into this alley I was charmed by the chaos of goods and colors.
    Lightning conditions were very hard: the quite dark street and the strong back sunlight filtering from the ceiling forced me to push up the ISO and at the same time to wash out the highlights.
    Despite that, I still like the composition.
    C&C welcome.

    Hi Giacomo,
    The image seems a tad overexposed, even though you say the street was dark. Maybe if you tune down a bit on the brightness it will render more of the atmosphere in the street. See the man on the right hand side looking up at whatever. It is better to avoid a situation of having people looking at something the viewer cannot see. You can crop him out.
    The image seems to be leaning a bit to the left. Look at the lines of the building in the centre of the image, if you get that upright the rest of the image will be fine.

    It is a good composition with lots of colour. Just play a bit with it and it will be great.

    Andre,
    thank you for your feedback, this is something that I didn't know.

    Well, in the previous image I bumped up the brightness... maybe too much
    I followed your suggestions and actually this one looks better.
    Thanks

    100% better. Sometimes it is just a little attention to detail that helps a lot.

    Great shot.

    Thanks Andre,
    you've been very helpful.

    This is what I like more of these forums: posting pics and receiving different, independent and disinterested judgements, suggestions and tips is a great way to learn and improve
