Our Take on Your Take
Our picks of your pics
Your View contributer Elissa Bogos was on the scene in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, after a devastating suicide bombing on October 8 outside the Indian embassy that killed 17 people and wounded dozens more.
Despite the chaos, she managed to snap this well composed photograph of a uniformed man walking through the strewn wreckage. By framing this man between two sets of exposed girders, the composition creates a frame within a frame that quickly draws the viewer to the main subject at hand.
As many photojournalists can attest, it is their job to convey a message visually. A good composition helps convey that message faster.
Your View contributor Ellie Kealey sent in a series of pictures on a rally held by women to support Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah. Not only are the pictures well composed and dynamic but the event is unusual. Ellie explains that a rally by only women is a rare event in Afghanistan. This particular group of women are Hazaras, who’s support Abdullah is seeking in the upcoming election.
