  #220 Trash Street Photography
Entry 11 of 15
   
 
One Man's Trash, Another Man's Treasure       ©2019 mrsawyer
Panasonic DMC-GH3       11th place, 27 points
1/125s, f5.3, ISO 250, 82mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Set black, grey, and white points. Applied unsharpmask. Increased saturation. Cropped.       Extra Info: I was walking on a sidewalk beneath an urban interstate highway that passes through our city and happened past, what city officials see as trash. It actually is a collection of items one or more homeless people have stored against a pillar of the highway overpass (where they live). Once or twice a year the city sends out crews to collect the cardboard box "bedrooms" and other "trash" the homeless have accumulated for survival. A few people were sitting a few columns beyond this collection, so I just shot in burst mode as I was walking, as not to disturb them.

    I really liked your approach and used a similar composition in the Open image. I thought this would have scored better.

    The diagonal is effective in taking one to the trash. Well composed and illuminated.

    To have so little and to have it taken away - sad story.

    A good find for the theme. Consider cropping out much of the plain grey pillar and, if possible show more of the environment on the right to add interest and improve composition. In any case, some brightening of the shadows is in order.

    Shooting as one walks is certainly in the spirit of street photography. The idea of shooting something like trash was intended to allow for more deliberate composition of the image.The image has a light half and a dark half. The nominal subject is in the dark half. Right off the bat, light areas naturally draw the eye. The shadows of the image are so dark that detail is lost. You could either expose more for the shadows to retain detail or recover the shadow details in post.
