Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Compaq...

Let's talk about the photo in general.... this is a strong composition and I really enjoy the perspective you chose. I also like the grain in the photo. I'm a fan of great black and white images because they completely change the perspective from which I view the image. I think the tonal range of this image is slightly flat... It could be a bit stronger possibly with some more contrast.

As for the challenge theme of 'color', I am in the group that was unable to draw your intention from this photo. Maybe your life is 'colorless'? Maybe you feel bound to the computer... Maybe you are an introvert who is captive in the prison of your own home... Maybe you are yearning for more color in your own existence? Maybe 'color' is a desire that you have. I'm not sure... the title makes me believe this to be the case.

If my assumptions are true, then I think that you have still missed the challenge topic. The theme of 'color' may be a strong part of this image, but lack of color is probably against the main theme of this challenge. This challenge, in my interpretation, was about showing the presence of color and making it stand out in your photograph.

Don't get discouraged with the score you received on this image. Keep up the effort and keep trying. The voters at DPC are quite diverse and you will do well if I have interpreted your image with any amount of accuracy :)

Cheers :)

No colors here, boring photo!

Unless I've missed anything... a pun, something... How does this photo meet the challenge topic?
04/12/2003 12:01:34 PM
Does not meet the challenge. Focus is blurry. Picture is grainy.

I\'m having a hard time coming up with a true positive thing to say about this pic. First, the challenge aspect - although black, white and gray are all colors, the photo does not enhanse or draw attention to any of these \"colors\". Focus seems a bit soft on the hand (esp. the fingers). Contrast - nearly non-existant. Finally, your title - Life - I\'m dense, so how does a hand on a mouse say \"life\"? Really, I curious now. Upon further review, score lowered from 5 to 4. Rob the Swash

I'm sorry, but I don't see what this has to do with colour.

thinking out of the box. topic is color, you went for lack of.. nice shot and your desk is much cleaner than mine!!!!!!!!!!

not much color
04/10/2003 04:00:54 PM
how is this color at all? Im confused...
04/10/2003 01:51:59 PM
this is a beutiful picture that is full of color
04/10/2003 07:39:59 AM
I quite like the perspective and the soft focus here but don't see what relevance this has to the challenge theme.
04/09/2003 06:35:57 PM
I'm sorry but this doesn't meet the challenge at all.
04/09/2003 02:05:29 PM
is it the lack of colour in "life" that is the message? Interesting concept!
04/09/2003 11:18:57 AM
Obscure
04/09/2003 10:18:20 AM
I get it. You're saying this life is devoid of color, yes? Cool idea!
04/08/2003 10:26:58 PM
color is key in this challenge.
04/08/2003 06:28:05 PM
where's the color???
04/08/2003 01:00:17 PM
so, do you really think that this is all there is to life and color? i hope not... besides it's gloomy message, the picture itself doesn't even look like "black and white" just grayish, murky and grainy... altogether, not terribly exciting, i am sorry to say... 1.

I don't think a black and white photo fits into the color challenge so well.
04/07/2003 11:08:59 PM
where is the color?
04/07/2003 03:32:13 PM
How colorful!
04/07/2003 03:15:49 PM
I think I'm missing the message. Is it supposed to be representing a colorless(boring) life in front of a computer.
04/07/2003 10:47:39 AM
Unfortunately, I don't understand your interpretation of color :( - setzler
