Hi Posthmous, we meet again in the Critique Zone!

Hmmm. Normally I am a fan, but this one doesn't grab me. I like the dog although I am a little mystified by the barcode through the nose. I am just not sure what the blur adds to this, it doesn't seem to me to need a sense of movement or dynamism. The flat, desert beige colours tell me that everything there should be still, beaten down by the heat. Perhaps I am wrong and it is heat haze not motion blur?

I think what really leaves me cold is just the overall balance of the composition. The tilted angle, the extra space at the top. I guess I just don't get it! Having seen plenty of your work, I'm sure you had something in mind here but this time, I'm not sure what it is.

I'm going to head back to predictability and over-sharpening now!

Happy hunting,

Frank.

A bold entry. Thanks for the reminder that I should not be so freaking timid.

I know what the photographer was going for here, but just didn't pull it off. Too bad - it would have been very effective.

Won't be long and we'll all have barcodes on us somewhere, i'm sure.

It probably won't work and they'll have to read the bar code, love the green reindeer.
