In this edition of “photo critique” I received more photos by Eric Cheung. Let’s see them.
I like the composition of all these photos, the emotions and the motion captured, all except for one thing: image DSC_3113, the blurry runner. This runner does not balance the picture, but rather captures all the attention – and it is an unwanted attention because he is not in focus. The steady-motion balance is present by the simple fact that you have the police officer in the down-left part and the running crowd in the upper-right part.
Also, thinking about DSC_3113 & DSC-3118 together, I believe the idea of the police officer faceing the incoming crowd (3113) is better than facing the passing crowd (3118), given the angle of the person who looks at the photos and not the race itself. When we are on the field, we tend to see in 4D (4 Dimensions) and an 180 degrees eye-view, but in the pictures we take, we only got a 2D and a limited frame – this is why it’s so hard to determine the right angles all the time.
