Hi all!

This is my first post here on LuLa.
The attached photo was taken last November in Niagara Falls.
Please share your thoughts.

Thank you, Joseph

Welcome, Joseph. My thoughts are that it's a nice, clear, tourist snapshot. Looks as if you've mastered the technical side of photography. What are your photographic objectives for the future?

Russ, thank you for your comment.

Photography is just a hobby of mine. Fortunately, I am in the situation where the objective is to have fun taking (making?) pictures, and hopefully pleasing myself with the results… at least once in a while.

I kind of dig the contrast of the massing gulls with the massing people, but that's a little thin as a theme. It feels more like a simple record shot - I was here - than anything deeper.

That said, there's nothing wrong with record shots. And, I do get a little tickle of something deeper, as I suggested in my first sentence.

There is too much going on in this image for it to be more than a record shot but I think it could be made "deeper" by cropping. To me, the main event in this image is the swirling birds and the response/engagement of the four tourists to the left of the middle of the image.

I would crop it to just include the right shoulder of the woman with the red hat and everything across to the right edge of the image. I would also crop away the area below the two birds flying low just above the river with a crop that just excludes all of the river.

This would approximately place the red boy and the biggest bird at opposing rule of thirds intersections!

I would then see what could be done to recover detail in the water flowing over the dam or tone it down if possible.

I think the blurred birds add to what the tourists are reacting to so they do not worry me.
