Love the tone of this picture. However the composition is weak. Looks kind of like a snapshot with the rule of thirds applied.

What would you change? I considered going further towards the stairs but there was a big flashy sign from a shop upstairs. Going back was also not really an option. "Not taking the pictures" is always an option, but I liked the atmosphere. Portrait orientation is out of the scope, I was shooting with the waist level finder. Interested to hear your ideas.

There really isn't much I can do given this picture in terms of PP. But maybe cut of the window at the left.

The gradient of light at the top bit of the picture should be the focal point of the picture but the window on the left is taking some attention away.

It also helps that the stairs are leading the eyes to that part of the picture. So you might want to work with the stairs.

Best I could squeeze out of my first roll of Portra 160:

I usually shoot Portra 400, which is far more flexible.

To be clear, that's not me and that's not my baby. It's my brother holding my cousin's baby. I took the photo.

Ed I like the first and last. What are you shooting with?

I'm no expert or authority, but the portrait is a bit washed out for my taste. You could play with your tone curve to add some contrast.

mafoofan, nice moments and the focus and DOF seem ideal, especially in the last photo. Colors look great on the portra

Thanks--still learning. Seems the Portra 160 is much more finicky than the 400. Tends to underexpose in my hands.

This was shot using Portra 160 Foo. If you follow the link to Flickr I talk about the film a bit in the shot description.
