For your criticism, please.
I took this shot because of the challenge of getting everything open at the same time. The monster man on the far left moves up and then disappears down, out of sight, and the lid of the spiked casket with the woman inside opens and shuts. But I was also interested in the attendants and the casualness of their attitude in the face of so much going on and so much "horror".
The image was taken in colour but I just sensed it would look good in B+W. I will post a colour version at some stage.
The moving objects are a little unsharp because I had to use 1/30 sec as the whole scene is in shadow and I did not want to go above ISO 100.
I almost missed this fantastic photograph. There is a lot of story telling in here and that makes it interesting. It is also beautifully framed, and has all the right technical characteristics such that one ignores that and moves into the story. Any time you have two people interacting, you have tension, and this is loaded with it. You got the moment and the truth here.
Actually, there is one technical quibble I have about the photo. It exhibits an effect particularly on the whites, which I often see when photos have been over-sharpened. I find it a bit distracting, whatever it is. The white pieces do not look right on my monitor.
Otherwise, I really enjoy it.
