What our JUDGE Laurence J. McMahon said about Clémence’s Photo


Michael Friedman’s image grabbed my attention.

I would have loved to have seen more of the man’s profile.

Just a slight turn of his head to the right.

Silhouettes can be tricky but I like the colours and the man’s pose as he carries his footwear.

Placing the subject more or less in the center works as does the placement of the horizon.

The reflection of the silhouette and that beautiful sky finishes off the image nicely.


Laurence J. McMahson is a professional editorial and commercial photographer (and former lawyer!) based in Dublin. 


What Michael said about his photo


 Hi Colin,

I took a photo of my son at Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota Florida.

I am a litigation attorney from New York.
