Comment by cghubbell:
I think the angled image is a creative technique and makes you want to look twice. The shadow in the background is a little distracting, and the dirt on the floor as well.

Comment by whagerbaumer:
The rust on the base of the oldest object is the most interesting part of this picture for me, although it is not where the spotlight lights. These objects lack harmony in color and do not really appear to be stages of the same disintegration. I would also favor a change in both setting and composition.

A 3.

Comment by photom:
* Greetings from the Critique Club *

This image has a lot going for it - I'm surprised it didn't finish higher. But as you know, there were a great many excellent entries to compete with.

One of the common weaknesses of many entries is the lack of impact - but your image does not suffer from that. It reaches right out to the viewer and shouts "proportion" quite loudly. I don't necessarily agree with the comment that it "barely" shows proportion as the left eye is about 1.5 times the size of the right eye.

Your presentation is well done - placing the subject on a diagonal line adds some tension.

Techically, the exposure looks to be right on and the "printing" shows good black and white qualities - good clean crisp whites and some black blacks with a nice tonal range between.

I'm a bit confused by the tech data shown on the image - an f-stop of 2.8 and a shutter speed of 1/10th. I would not have thought the focus on the right ear would have remained sharp at 2.8 - given the focus is most likely centered on the eyes. And a shutter speed of 1/10 most lkely required a very still model and a tripod.

The lighting is a bit "troublesome" as well - with two catchlights in the larger eye - but just one in the smaller one.

The only minor improvement I would suggest is the removal of the bright spots just to the right of the eyelid and in the upper right corner of the image.

Overall - a great effort all the way.
