Just a simple observation from the balcony of my hotel room in Kerkyra (Corfu) town. I watched people passing by the yellow and white parts and tried to make a composition.

A great example of how by using just a few simple features you can produce an excellent composition. The right of frame is strong in graphical shapes - curves, squares and zigzags. This is perfectly balanced by the positioning of the lady to the left.

sometimes curious things are just right before us!
this makes me think that I should look more attentively around me when I am outside:))
I'm not quite sure if I would prefer to see this lady just one step closer to the bottom of the image... but anyway, I like the original idea:)

Hi Gert. Lines, shapes, colors - and a woman. Your photo is a small fine and graphic art. The composition is really absoute perfect. Well done. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Successfuul composition. The pattern of the pavement is a good theme for photographers. Here it is quite simple bot with this cut looks very attractive. Pity that a girl has no red teeshirt :).

Interesting POV over a piece of the square. Nice graphical effect, well catch scene.
Have a good day.

You have not just tried to make a composition, you have succeeded! And very well too.
The curving yellow and white shapes at the right are strong but nicely balance the lady who otherwise might appear "lost" in a vast sea of grey. She is perfectly placed in the frame as are the curving lines, judiciously exiting the frame exactly at the top right corner.

The composition is very creative and it works very fine with the sector of the circle with yellow color. The composition is minimal but strong enough to attract.
Have nice times

A fine decoration around the pavement here and also well positioned in your picture. The lady walking by seems to be unaware of the artistry of the street painters.

well spotted and quick reactions on your part.I'm going to give this a special genre all of its own, Street Graphism".

Your image emphasises the lines and curves so well, its just the perfect graphical effect leaving so much to the imagination. Good stronger compostion with the person timely placed off-centre though. Envy this experiment from this high view point, good pattern shot, the angle and the colours are great. Overall though, a very pleasing image and you have done this most excellently. Congrats

i think this composiotion is very fine with the woman in a good positioned in the frame. Perhaps longer shadows would have been better but the interesting curves are a good compensation for that. Good idea to take photos from this birds-eye pov with a result of simplicity, something I appreciate very much. Good shot !
chawax (20756) 2011-08-23 12:51
A simple shot but it has a very strong graphical impact. Very well done !
PS : I just saw the list of countries you visited, a really impressive one !

Original, creative and efficience composition with a mixt well balalnced between element of human life and graphic effect. Good idea and nice image!
Have a nice day,
agjika (3177) 2011-08-25 10:51
Great composition. You have caught the pedestrian on the right spot. And the curves always help.
kato (11630) 2011-08-25 19:14
You're capturing well this street scenery by an interesting angle, so it's impressive to see the ground with three layers. And, it's impressive in curved yellow mark as well as the shadow of waman projected to the road, too.

your effort to find the best composition is evident and succesful. I like the disposition of elements and compare this shot with the similar from Hotel Moscow in Belgrade that I like so much also. Have the best summer, friend!
Angshu (56750) 2011-08-26 9:08
The high POV works well. A fine balance in the composition with the design on the right & the passing woman. Good graphic effect!

You wrote that this a simple observation from the
balcony from your hotel, but I think that you have
a great eye for detail: I can learn from this picture.
Also the composition and light management are great..
Friendly regards and have a nice Sunday,

As I've done a number of times myself...simply look out from the hotel window or off the balcony, and you'd be surprised what shows itself. This popped up on your random profile page and was too good to resist, what a wonderfully minimal and graphic realization.
Of course, this ladies presence is a key factor to draw further interest and keep the composition from becoming static, while the overhead perspective tops it off nicely. And the best part is, you can sit right back down and relax in the comfort of the room after an accomplished photo...it just doesn't get much better. :) You say a simple observation, I'd call it smart and creative...not everyone can see these types of opportunities. Well thought out and executed! Enjoy the new day.
