Interesting way to photograph the staff, but the people in the back aren't visible and those along the edges are stretched. When shooting wide angle, people should never be placed near the edges of the image.

this kind of layout provides extremely low detail on the people standing in the rear of the room, even worse with just natural window light.

The two people closest to the camera seem a little distorted (wide angle?) but other than that, very nice shot.

Nice to see someone has gone beyond having more than 3 or 4 people in the shot. Using the wide angle lens has slightly distorted the people closest the camera. good corporate shot.. 7

There's got to be a better way of composing the subjects here. It looks like a line of people waiting for a movie to get out. You can only make out a few people and the ones you can make out have distorted heads from the wide angle lens.

Try again.

I love this shot, everyone's posing just for you.

This is a nice group photo. Dubai I am assuming?

good job

Wow! What a company to agree to such a portrait :)

This is a weird picture and I'm still wondering whether I like it. At least you got me wondering, that's cool. I think I do like the concept, but it might have worked better with a slightly smaller group, let's say two thirds of this one. ALso, I think that the backlight does not wotk out too wel, blowing out the 2nd guy on my right, and leaving the dark suites so dark that they loose detail. (7)

Interesting perspective portrait.

Lots of wide angle distortion here. Not flattering for a portrait.

The wideangle distorts the men in the front. It distracts from the image. you may be able to fix that on the computer.

Wow, I love the line of people
10/04/2007 01:01:21 PM
foreground faces are distorted

nicely done

wide angle distortion is hurting this one. Interesting subject matter though

This is a great photo. I love the way you mananged to capture everyone. There is some slight distortion with guy on the right (closest to the camera).
10/03/2007 03:51:51 AM
Well done.

Very interesting. The distortion from the wide angle lens is mildly disturbing, however.
