Election night victory..

Post by Onslow » Mon Dec 15, 2014 7:36 pm

A few months ago, I attended the local election night party for one of our local candidates in our State elections. Eddie Hughes eventually won the election by a substantial margin. Watching the count though on the screen was a bit nailbiting for all concerned.

Nice coverage. You captured the emotions quite well.

Nice documentary series - I like number 4 and the spontaneous celebration of victory.

Yes, I agree, overall a nice series. Well exposed and great capture of the expressions. There is one thing that stands out for me though and I'll illustrate it with your first two images. The issue can be summed up like this, "what is the subject reacting too?"

In the first image you can see the full story within your frame (sort of). There is an action and a reaction. Looking at it we see the subjects intently reacting to whatever is occurring on the laptop. The second image is clearly very similar to the first. We see a group of people reacting to something however, that something is missing from the frame. Journalisticly we are only presented with half the story. Image four and five are similar, the story lacks completion, however the signs and balloons hanging above give better context to what the event is, giving the viewer a better clue of why people are cheering. A stronger composition would have been to show the TV screen (I assume) they are looking at as well as the reaction and the decorations. That way when the viewer gets to the final image, we understand the logical conclusion of the story, "he won."

Hope this helps.

It certainly does Duck. :) Thanks for that. The only problem was the TV they were watching the announcement on was in a recess. I simply was unable to get them and the tv at once. The images were actually supplied to Eddy for him to use on his fb wall and website...
