Heat, photographic competition

Sadly, i'm not hosting said competition if that's what you thought hah :P

 

 

 

I am entering the one put on by my school every year, and i really want to win it in this, my final year. The theme is heat, and i really wanted to stay away from anything to do with fires lol, because i can guarantee so many people will use it as their central idea. Went up to Blackheath today, in the mountains about 2 hrs out of sydney, we have a house there, and shot this on their train station. I've maniped it a bit, as you will see, as that's fine within the rules, and it needed to be done. That's what i particularly want c/c on. I took the cloudy sky from another photo, shot in the same spot, just earlier on when it wasn't blanket cloud cover, same thing with the middle boy's head. The right hand side pillar of clouds i had to paint in, because the clouds didn't extend that far. That's the bit i'm worried about the most, and where they fit around the boy on the right. Is it realistic? I don't want people to know i've maniped it.

 

 

 

So any c/c please, and be honest, brutally if necessary.

I agree with the replies above. Some c/c:

 

 

 

- Convert it to black and white. Not because black and white makes every photo look cool all of a sudden, but it will increase the contrast and it will give some more impact than it does right now. This scene asks for impact, which kind of lacks right now. Maybe you could only convert the letters 'heat' to red or something, leaving the rest black and white.

 

 

 

- The guy at the right seems to bend a bit too much to the left, but its easy to warp him some more to the right in Photoshop.

 

 

 

- The lamps and the safety camera keep on distracting me, try to remove just the big lamps and the camera. The curves on top of the post could stay.

 

 

 

I wonder how it will look after correcting it, keep it up :)

Thanks for the c/c. Yeah the composition does suck, i have some other shots, but none that block out the letters of the sign as much. We can't do another shoot, since we live like two and half hours from this place, and it was the only day we could go there. I'll fix it up later today and get back to you.
