Arab Lady by Atiqahidayu Majid



Atiqah's Original Post


Imagemaker's Cropping


Bazuki's Cropping

Atiqah said `I've came along to this blog from fidfathir's acknowledgment. he said that chap ayam is a good platform for me to improve my foto. *Minta tunjuk ajar* :)
i have not got much good fotos for now but i will work hard to produce more! so, allow to be in the "reban" plss =)

this foto of an arab lady was shot at genting highlands theme park, waiting in q..
photojournalism is very new to me. the experience is too enthusiasm, if i could closely describe it..'

Welcome Atiqah. I was about to delete this photo while screening through so many submissions from so many photographers. In my opinion, I think this photo is nice due to the eye contact. The eyes saved this photo from being rejected by me. Unfortunately, I don't quite agree with your cropping. I find the left part ( the back of the head of a girl and the space in between) is a bit distracting. Since I really like the Arab lady's eyes, I decided to crop it vertically. Imagemaker

Thanks for your input Bazuki!.. I was thinking of the similar cropping, but it was too small.

actually my message was "SHOOT it that way", not not "crop it that way".
