Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

Well done Daniel for your use of an explorative technique to create something unique as you have done here. This spinning technique is good for drawing the viewer in to the centred item of interest, this quite similar to altering the focal length of a zoom lens during a long exposure except there the radiating lens radiate towards the centre. The pattern of bright coloured lights also help to contain the centred attention. The choice of subject leaves the lower half of the frame less interesting so I think choice of subject is quite critical but nevertheless still an interesting image.

Comment by PennyClick:
For this challenge I am making a point of commenting on a few images which fall in different places on my scoring. This fell in a broad middle range. I enjoy the delicate feel of the grey branches against the sky and the shapes of the branches in the center reaching towards the water and their reflection. However, the overall image feels too busy and I find my eye keeps jumping around, pulled from one place to another, from the top to the bottom and from side to side, never finding a place where it can come to rest.

Greetings from the Critique Club, Daniel!

Very glad that you have joined a local photography club and are working on improving your skills. I can tell you used a tripod here...what a difference a simple piece of equipment makes eh? The composition is fairly straightforward, I like it overall but would have preferred to see one of the roses a little lower than the others, to help create a leading line up from the apples. (Personally I would have used just one red rose, but that's me, and still lifes aren't my strong point). I do agree with the comment re the oof apples and highlights...your photo club can help you learn how to control highlights, but in the meantime most still lifes are front-to-back in focus....f2 is extremely shallow, try going a bit deeper next time, longer exposure and keep the ISO low.

All in all very nice work and a good showing in a Free Study, which are always tough to do well in. Keep up the good work and definitely continue to work with your photo club!

Susan

Nice concept, but I would have liked to see the apples in focus here, and the reflections on the vase slightly better controlled.

Greeting from the critique club.

I appreciate the impressionistic look of your photo. However I don't believe that is what you intended. A big blown up photo like this is a serious technical challenge, and I think that your camera just wasn't quite up to it. It looks like you struggled with noise that you were trying your darndest to elliminate. It was a good effort, which works when small, though looks poor when blown up on a big screen. Otherwise, I would have loved some creativity here in some way. Something to make it unique.

I hope you gathered a bit of insight from this critique, cheers.

Something like this needs to be tack sharp on the eye to work. This isn't, and the artifact in the reflection just takes away some more. Great eye color, but not a great photo.

Comment by Lydia:
I love the composition.

BUT... in my opinion, there needs to be something very sharply in focus in an image like this.

That eye needs to COMMAND my attention... not get it when my eye finally gets there.

But... that's just an opinion. All voters have an equal one.
