Your Photo: Our Critique

James Korn submitted this image taken with a Canon 5D, at 1/1600 sec, f/8, ISO 400. James added a touch of humor with this shot by including a stop sign in the foreground. This is really a nice wide-angle shot that shows the whole scene of bikers on a country road.

This is really a nice wide-angle shot that shows the whole scene of bikers on a country road. The stop sign itself on its wooden post says a lot about this area. James was concerned that including the stop sign was too much but it helps to frame the winding road, which works as a great leading line into the photo. The sky looks a little processed but has a nice painterly feel to it and the blue in the sky works beautifully with the red in the sign.
