Base Camp
Camera: K-x 
Posted By: nate_b, 12-16-2009, 03:05 AM

A shot looking up at Invesco Field in Denver, CO - home of the Broncos. I was fortunate enough to attend the Thanksgiving game versus the NY Giants to watch a friend play. The K-x was in tow, and I took a number of shots to commemorate the event. I'll likely post a series later, but wanted to share this one image for now. Thanks for looking.

I hope I don't offend you here, but I think the stadium doesn't really add much to the picture. It would be much more dramatic if had focussed (composition-wise) on the three men on the foreground.

No offense taken, Kevin. I value and welcome honest feedback, so thanks for sharing it. I have to agree that the foreground holds more interest than the rest of the image - the stadium suffering by comparison. Thanks again for the C&C.

An excellent B&W conversion, but I do find, as Kevin has, that the subject is not all that clear - is it the stadium or the people? In answering this there would be guidance to how to frame the shot next time.

One thing going for it, though, is the use of perspective and scale.

Thanks for the reply, Ash. You're right - no clear subject. I planned on the stadium being the subject at the time I took the shot, but the more dramatic lighting on the people in the foreground competes for interest and makes the subject unclear. Thanks for the kind words about the B&W conversion - I like how it turned out as well. Unfortunately, that does seem to be the most compelling aspect of the photo.
