Greetings from the Critique Club
By Inspzil

Composition - Well I think above and beyond everything, it was the composition part that dragged you down. There really isn't anything of interest here and you've done a great job portraying that. The one thing that I think you could've improved upon in this composition is having a little focal point. I find myself wanting to focus on the cigarette butt at the top of the frame. I think that could be an effective focal point for the viewers if placed in the right strategic spot, I'd go for the top right 3rd. But really the bigger problem is that there just isn't anything to see here of photographic interest.

Technical - I can't say the photo is poorly taken, it isn't. It isn't exceptionally well taken either though. The exposue is good, the DOF is right. It is pretty clear.

Overall - This photo is a bit lacking in subject matter. Maybe this photo is lacking in subject altogether. The voters were pretty harsh with this one and honestly I don't blame them. The best thing about this photo is definitely the clever title. The rest of it is pretty easy to come by. sorry I couldn't be of much assistance on this photo. Good luck in your future challenges. - Inspzil

great title!

Well composed, interesting light, and I love the shoes. Lines and angles add to the interest here.

Enter your comment here, and then cast your vote...Two small steps for. . . Great idea. Wished the landing site were more interesting.

Nice composition; I think the presence of the feet detract from your shot, though.

very nice, would be better with out the toes though.

At 5.58 feet, I'm sure there are a lot of better shots can be made from.

Great title, lol! Very simple but superb detail, good to see you caught your feet in there too, gives a real sense of scale.
03/17/2003 03:10:45 PM
Would have liked it better without the feet
03/17/2003 12:39:49 PM
