The Catcher in the Rye

By Sigita
I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy.

Mono would be a good idea, don't you think?
The missing fingers and the crop in the eye must have been deliberate so I can't comment on that.
I can't decide if Segelfoss or Catcher in the Rye are the most boring books I've ever read...
I should have taken up photography earlier, haha.

Hi Pablophotographer, regarding mono, no I don't think it would be good idea, in fact I think it would be terrible idea.
This image intentionally been made in cinematic style and colours, by making it in mono it would loose all its intentions and would look boring.
Cinematic style images also intentionally are framed as naturally possible, not as neat possible ( they not wedding photographs).
Images are not only perfectly framed shots, you need to judge further than that, because there are many more factors to look at, as: photographic style, intention, story (if there is one), colours, frame, size etc.
J.D. Salinger is one of my favorite writers....I think The Cather in the Rye is the book full of wisdom ...if you can understand what is written between the lines Wink.

I like the colours - they are very mood enhancing.
I like the depth of field used and the incorporation of foreground blur.
Personally I would have liked to have seen both eyes clearly rather than have a one partially obscured by foreground but that's a small point to me Smile
I don't read books so I can't comment on them Smile
brings the whole thing back - first read in 1959......
