So I haven't been on ePHOTOzine for a while because I have been working on some new images. Here is one of my new photographs for the series. I am now working on choosing my final 7 images to display. Let me know what you think, advice will be highly appreciated Smile

Hi Natasha,I like the image per se, but am not able to relate it to the title of the image Smile but that could just be me Wink far as the image is concerned i think it works at a certain level its been composed well and if i leave the title out of the equation it leaves a lot to imagination on the interpretation of the story Smile. I think this would work very well in mono though and couldnt resist attempting a mod. V1 is the mono and v2 is just a slight adjustment in contrast of the color version

Cheers

This is perfect, enough detail to hold interest, though very subtle, well executed, totally love this Smile

Ive loved the series, however this is the one thats least voyeuristic for me. The fact that the hands are on the glass totally change the image to one from a scene from Psycho (an old scary movie, if they had glass showers at that time!) It looks as though the person is in a panic, afraid of something, and if thats the intent, it works.


The image itself has too much light behind for me, brighter than the others, if I look at it as part of a series, so for me its not blending in. Its the dark aspect of the rest that make them special. The hands in this, for me, could also belong to either a man or a woman

Looking at the image on its own merits, I would suggest addressing the very bright area where the light is; make black = black; perhaps level with the black area of the shower.


I will load a mod shortly.


regards

Much as I like this, I have to agree with the above that it doesn't quite fit in with the others. Here there is a strong sense of panic: the character has realised that she is being observed. The earlier images were much more introverted, and I think the introversion is what made them stronger. I think Willie is right about the bright light; I would even refer to the overall brighter tones, while your best images so far have been much more sombre. This might almost come from a different series.

I agree with Devlin that if the image didnt have the title it would make you think a bit more about what it is and means. Also I would like to see this in Mono. Good imageSmile

Dont know with this one. If you take this as a stand alone image, I really like it. Its superb. Makes you think, has an element of the tittilating to it, could be almost seedy....which in turn DOES lend itself to the "Voyeur" title in that context. But if you are putting this into the previous series of images, then it doesn't quite fit, ESPECIALLY with that title. This should be the beginning of a "new" series with a different theme, rather than going in with the last set, which, as a stand alone concept was quite brilliant and clever. This is just a little bit different to merit that title......I would give this a lack of title and maybe get the rest of the images to go along the lines of this, expand the idea etc etc.

I really like it. Could be a touch darker, but its a photo on its own, not with the previous set. Good work though....superb!
