Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I would really appreciate any advice on creative ways which I can display and frame my work. I am torn between blowing the images up large or having them small, so the viewer needs to look closer, like a voyeur. I will really appreciate any feedback given, and would love to hear your individual interpretations of this piece. (This piece is part of a series of similar images)

I like your idea of peering at small prints given the artistic theme behind them. I find the orange blob in this one distracting though. It's a good idea and makes a change from full nudity! Are you shooting from inside a shower here?!

This is coming up on my screen as about 26cm tall, and that works for me - particularly when viewed at a distance of a couple of metres. It allows detail to emerge, but still draws the eye in. Personally I enjoy the random splashes of strong colour, this is good.

I am really pleased that this shot has made an impression on you both! It's always nerve wracking asking for opinions on work that you have worked so hard to achieve, so i really appreciate your time and advice. These shots were taken of my friend in the shower, I wanted them to have a slightly darker feel to them but still incorporate an element of colour. I am fairly happy with the overall outcome, but i still feel there is something missing which i can't quite put my finger on!

PS Re framing - I'm currently preparing for a small exhibition, my style is: black card mounts (the bevelled cut edge around the picture creates a narrow white border which works well with both colour and b&w), and a very narrow-edged discreet black frame. White or cream mounts in a black frame also look good. The important thing I think is to chose a style and be consistent with it.
There are some good ready-made frames easily and very affordably available, but it's worth having mounts professionally cut.

I too think that the orange and blue are distracting and too dominant in the picture. If you can desaturate them then the torso with the red sponge will become the dominant part of the picture and draw the viewers gaze. Then they will see the eye staring back and get a stronger impression of being the voyeur.

While not 'my style' - I do appericate your orignal thinking here, and I feel you have produced an interesting and thought proviking image here.

Regarding the orange blob (sponge?) - was wondering if instand of the sponge, you just had the hand pressed up against the glass?

Regarding printing - If you can afford it - nice an large!

I think this is a great piece of work, the eye peering through the gap in the steamed glass and the way she's holding her arms portrays a feeling of vulnerability. The colours and the dark areas work well together for me adding tension to the atmosphere.

Great stuff, looking forward to seeing more from this series.

Darren.

Thanks Darren,

It's nice to hear some positive feedback about my work, as I would say it's been about 50/50 in terms of people liking it! I will try and get some more images up soon. However, I am stuck with only being able to upload 1 a day which isn't great!

Very creative shot. I like the whole series. I think this is my favorite. The splash of bright color here and there add a real element of interest.

I think the orange, blue and red are fine, but that the eye needs strengthening - either by having it in really sharp focus (and you may have deliberately focussed on the shower glass), or by burning in to get it really dark so it stands out more.

A fraction more tone in the background, and maybe burning in at the edges to hold the eye in the frame... But this may be too traditional a take on things for an art school project!
