  • Orange Is no Lemon

    The more I look at it then the more I feel it is unbalanced. All the focus is too near the bottom. A simple crop taking out the mid bowl and above, but making sure to leave all the bottom bowl in the picture so that you can see that it IS a bowl of oranges, is probably better.

    That's a nice touch, thanks.

    Thanks, that helps actually. Sometimes it's as good having people say they don't like something.

    Interesting. I have ones without an out of focus teasel but I felt it added to the depth of the picture. I need to go back through them and look again. Thanks for the feedback, it's making me think.

    This seems to be one of those photos that's "almost there". It caught my eye enough in the thumbnails view for me to want to look at it as an individual photo. But then I was oddly disappointed. The easiest thing to spot is that the horizon doesn't appear level, all the water is going to run out of the left side of the picture! I then find that the bottom half of the picture doesn't add anything, and in fact the tiny bit of bank on the righ bottom corner distracts the eye. This could be improved by going for a letterbox format, crop away the dead space. The photograph is called "Sunrise" but the sunrise itself is overexposed so that all the colours and glory of the sun in the right upper quadrant are lost - either a grey grad to tone down the sky or simply underexpose to rectify this (if it was shot in RAW then you might still be able to recover some of it).

    Firstly, I prefer the colour version at the moment but I believe that the mono should be better. What holds me back on the mono is that there is some clear marking around the top and bottom of the frame whcih shows that the brush hasn't been applied to the whole of the tryptic. The light grey at the top and bottom is distracting. In addition I find the entire contrast in the mono is overdone.
    Secondly, I love the concept and putting it into a tryptic. However, the distance closer between the first and second is not the same as the second and third. I think that what you have done is halve the distance and then halve it again (counting the pillars on the far side you have 6 before the first arch in picture one, 3 in pcture 2 and 1.5 in picture 3). I think it would have been better to have either moved or zoomed the same distance both times. I'm guessing it's zoom as I think you must be standing out on a beam.
