This is one cool shot! I really like it. The title is perfect, and the presentation is just right for this photo. At least in my opinion :) I am not sure if it fits the "minimalist" concept, especially since the tracks are a big part of the story told. 9 from me.

I would leave some beer cans around the chair, not just because it adds to the photo's story, but also because I am lazy like that.

i like it, reminds me of early color photographs, it makes me wonder who would be sitting in that chair
05/03/2005 03:37:21 PM
i absolutely love the coloring on this shot.
05/02/2005 02:23:52 PM
very interesting = good depth of field.
05/02/2005 04:53:37 AM
The contrast seems a bit high
05/01/2005 06:00:09 PM
nicely done.
05/01/2005 03:56:12 PM
the detials in many parts of your darks are lost...
05/01/2005 03:05:26 AM
Would have been way cooler if a person was actually sitting in the chair. The image is a lot on the darker side too..

Thanks for giving me something different to look at...nic etake on the challenge. I like the feeling I get..tones work well here. Nice dramatic context.

Great shot. very artistic. one of my favorites so far.
04/30/2005 08:05:52 PM
I like this kinda stuff, and this photo is definatly well done. It casts a mood over me, great picture
04/30/2005 07:57:10 PM
This has a "memory" feeling to it. I like this photo for that reason. Nice job.
04/30/2005 07:18:56 PM
I like the contrasty feel of the shot. 6
04/30/2005 05:22:16 PM
Love the theme. Good composition. Excellent DOF; I like the foreground out of focus and the chair in sharp focus. Good work 7
04/30/2005 02:26:57 AM
like the colors, chair really stands out
04/29/2005 11:56:23 PM
Love it! Fun setup and really nice, dark processing that works perfectly for this scene and for the challenge.

This isn't minimalism in my mind. I am sorry that I can't point anything out to make this better it is my limitations only. Maybe not as disturbing surroundings and the chair standing better out would make it good.
04/29/2005 06:22:08 PM
Moving back some would help.
04/28/2005 09:07:48 PM
I really like this image and I can't pinpoint why....which is better than knowing. Hope that makes sense. 10
04/28/2005 05:11:23 PM
I get a very old worn feeling from this. Makes me wonder "why is there a chair there?".
04/28/2005 04:28:12 PM
Maybe there should be someone sitting in the chair? except for the chair and rails, the rest of the image lacks visual interest, and the monochamaticy of it loses points, in this case, i just don';t think it works, and the image is too sharpenned too, 4
04/28/2005 08:27:56 AM
I love the textures and colors. Seem like a bit of fuzziness at the top but I still gave it an 8.
04/28/2005 04:26:08 AM
I like this photograph's tone. Interesting pov used. Strange focus, blurred foreground and blurred background, focus on the chair, kind of. It works for me. Tells a story. I am a real push-over for "chair" photos.
04/27/2005 01:05:18 PM
Very original and creative concept. Love the colors. I only feel that, if you eliminated the sky area, which is a little distracting, the photo would greatly improve.

Really creepy. Well done!
04/27/2005 11:02:57 AM
I like the harsh contrast, and it feels to me that more grain would be effective. 8
04/27/2005 06:16:16 AM
more surrealism than minimalism, IMHO
04/27/2005 03:26:01 AM
very interesting shot and colors
04/27/2005 01:02:40 AM
Interesting saturation effect. Nice composition. The chair almost looks artificially imposed because of the post processing, though. I might try blending it in a little more, if I were the one doing it. But I'm not, so never mind me. Nice work.
