I spotted this shot a couple of days ago and have been sitting looking at it for a while.

I think I like it, in an "abstracty" sort of way and will probably print it off but I wondered what others would make of it, so am offering it for critique.

I liked the juxtaposition of the bright, summery colours of the hut acting as a frame for the slighly soft and distorted image of the horse chestnut tree seen through the old glass on the hut window.

So, feedback please - keep or reject?

I like it - unusual with a 'double window' visible and I enjoy the idea that someone was bold enough to put those colors together! A

Thanks Arthur, the colour combination is quite subdued for us Seaside Dwellers, you should see the colours of some of the huts around our local beaches! Smile

I had to look at this for a while but I do sort of get it I do think the eye is distracted from looking through the window at first by the expanse of 'noisy' colours shouting at you.

I have centred the window in a square image to and added a small border. This helps to draw the eye through the window. The border effect left by the wooden panels adds interest and a different dimension to the shot.

hello Brian
its full of colour etc and technically its ok but im sure it will dissapoint as a large print.

for an abstract type image, i dont think there is enough of the coloured walls and so the window frame will look too large and overpowering in the final print and perhaps more importantly im wanting to see another element (for instance a head of someone sitting reading) or similar to maintain some interest.

nothing wrong but not enough to light any fires i feel,

best regards,
Phil

thanks for the added thoughts Frank & Phil.

I agre that its never going to "light any fires" but I think that Paul called it right, "wall art for the graphic designer".

I've got it printed at 15"x10" and mounted and I think its a saleable image, I'll try it out at my next craft market as I have one or two customers I think would want it.
