The Outsider-6x6-SOLD


Playing with really zooming in, cropping tight, on this one. pushed the color a little, while keeping the values right. trying to keep the shadow side of the slice in the shadows (but illuminated from within) as the light comes thru, thats the challenge. Composition-wise the slice on the bottom left points diagonally up to the group in the right corner, making a dynamic compositon (versus being static). the one on the bottom left counter-balances the section of the grouping, since it has prominance. really like the way this one came out.
I named it "The Outsider" because the one slice looks like he wants to get over with the group, but because theyre all huddled up, they dont really like that idea!
