Autumn Lawn

Autumn Lawn
by westford

Comment:
By no fault of your own, this is the third shot I've seen on the same theme. So my comments feel a bit recycled. That said, I do like this shot best of the three "Dying leaves/ Growing grass" shots I've seen so far.

What I like:
- the grass, it looks almost like a painting. Very abstract. I would have loved it if the man wasn't in the frame, lol. This is mainly because the pattern of the grass has so much great visual appeal and the man breaks that (which I think was your point by the title.)

What I didn't like:
- That the man's top half is chopped out of frame
- His placement in top right is unsettling (which I think was on purpose, so I guess this comment could be considered an overall positive.)

Overall: unsettling shot.

Jealous of my neighbors greenhouse
by josaa

Comment:
What I like:
- Nicely framed.

What I don't like:
- Wish f/stop had been higher for more DOF (foreground more in focus). This would have the added bonus of slowing shutter speed for more flow of the water.
- lighting is a bit low on the man's face (would have used a reflector- if he was posing for the shot...)

Overall: nice shot, wish flowers were in focus/ better lighting on face.

still snow in Canada
by fngood83

Comment:
What I like: the title made me laugh.

What I don't like:
- I'm having a hard time putting my finger on what seems off with this picture for me. I guess it comes down to the subject of the photo (the dead grass and snow) just aren't that visually interesting.
- I don't like how the tops of the trees were clipped out of the shot.

Overall: good exposure to capture both the lights and darks in this shot. Did you use HDR?

Weeds Rule

Comment:
What I like:
- Framing
- focus/ DOF

What I don't like:
- The color of the flowers seems off. Not sure if they are suppose to be yellow or white. As is, they match the background bokeh color a bit too closely and kind of fad into it.

Overall: perhaps this would have been a better shot with use of a reflector to bounce some more light onto the flowers... Although I've never used reflectors on something so close to the ground before... Perhaps a small hand mirror with a coating of hair spray or a thin sheet of wax paper over it would have done the trick.

lawn
by mrbig65

Comment:
What I like:
- The stillness of the trees
- That flog in the background
- I'd normally complain about the saturation of the color, but in this picture the over saturation works to add an other worldly feel to this lawn.

What I don't like
- If I'm picking, the train in the background (or whatever building that is?) Not sure if a change of angle would have been possible with this shot.

OVerall: my "don't like" was a super nit pick. This is a great shot.

Devil's Valley

Comment:
While the flares are very pretty, the back lighting of this shot hides a lot of the grasses detail

Comment:
What I like:
- The contrast between the theme (Lawn) and the truth this picture depicts.

What I don't like:
- If I wasn't aware of the theme, this picture would lose a lot of it's punch.

Overall:
- Great reminder of the state of things, but without context, this picture loses significants.

the green green grass of home!

What I like:
- Wow. It made me blink twice when the pic popped up on my screen.

What I don't like:
- I'm speechless still

Overall: super interesting bathroom/ lawn. Looks straight out of National Geographic.
