How much is too much?
Lens: Chinon Auto MC 28mm f2.8 Camera: K-500 Photo Location: Caracas ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/50s Aperture: F8 

Just a rhetorical question but I welcome any critique, opinion or suggestion.

All of us have different ways of processing our photos, thinking or feeling them.

Although I try to get the best from the moment of the capture, the other creative processes (like editing, developing, cropping, choosing a title or an order to a mini-serie) can be as or even more important than the photograph itself.

Here's one recent mini-serie; the kind of works I usually post on my Insta.

Technical info:
K-500 + Chinon Auto MC 28mm f2.8 + auto tele converter 2x (empty inside)
PP: Lightroom crop to 4:5 + film like presets + general developing (shadows, exposure, saturation, etc)

No title

#3 is my favorite of the set. I'm curious would it would like in B&W. Boost shadows to get a little more light, then drop black point to offset the shadow boost. I suppose the same thing could be done by boosting the white point + contrast.


#1 is IMO too busy behind the central sharp point of the wire.
