I'm mystified - this is a picture that's available for sale in an exhibition, and it's very competent.

It doesn't end there - I'd never heard of a Pentacon 6000, and looking it up, it's a scanner, so I think it's a digital scan from a picture taken with a Nikon, probably on film...

A very competent image, in any case - there's little I would want to suggest in the way of options or changes.

to Dudler. Thanks for Your comment. The Pentacon 5000/6000 is a unique high resolution scanner-camera.The image is not a scanned print but a original digital photography. Sadly, this camera, produced in Dresden,Germany, is not available anymore since 2016.

Welcome to the Critique Gallery.
You arrived here because you checked the "Critique Wanted" option when uploading, but I don't think this was your intention. You are obviously a professional photographer and the images in your portfolio are of exceptional quality. Also, they are being exhibited, and you are therefore unlikely to benefit from anything that critiquers are likely to say in regard to improving or altering them.
Here we try to give advice that will help people to improve their photography, people who are keen to learn.

In the main gallery, reached by NOT checking that "Critique Wanted" option, you can receive votes and even awards, and I think your images would be best uploaded to that gallery, where they are likely to reach a much wider audience.

I would be interested to know how you set up your subjects to make these images. They are quite unique and interesting to view.

Dear Pamela, thanks for Your info. Even in my professional life I take critics for granted.My visual interpretations are surely subjective. But to me is a different understanding , point of view or even rejection a trigger momentum to spend another thought.
In my lectures and workshops, I encourage the participants, on the way to their own photography, to question themselves first of all and foremost, to become lesser epigones than the author of originality. .
I ask for your understanding that I do not share all details of my artwork in public , But should we meet somewhere and someday,......more about technology and construction.A promise!

with compliments from Berlin

Interesting and effective. However, not a god idea to put an image in the critique section if you are not prepared to discuss all aspects of it. The idea of this section is to learn from analysis of your own images and for others to learn by reading the discussion.

Dear Paul, thanks for Your comment...always ready to react on critique. But the meaning of critique is certainly not a manual to explain how to build a house, but to describe Idea and sense to understand the intension of a sujÚt....Technique is just an additive.

best wishes from Berlin

have a good weekend

P.S. a hint for You..I work with glass layers Smile
