This stone angel seems sadly neglected.

Greetings from the Critique Club :)

Hi Webster...

Meetin the Challenge:

Without a doubt... snow is definitely weather :)

Artistic/Emotional Impact:

I think this photo is a little lacking in this area. From this particular perspective, It's really difficult to tell what I am looking at, therefore, the image takes on an abstract meaning of nothing more than lines, shapes and color. The color is flat and not really an integral part of this image for me.


The composition seems to be ok, but maybe a different perspective would greatly enhance this image rather than a simple straight on view of the subject. Maybe a different time of day would also cast some shadows and bring out some detail with some different lighting across the image...


The image feels a little soft. When I think of cold and winter, I think that crisp focus works very well...

An interesting shape you have there. You've depicted winter weather well (don't worry Spring will come to you soon). I think you shouldn't have centered everything so exactly though but composed the image more using the rule of thirds.

Took me a second to figure it out. The angel is a little dark, probably cos the camera compensated for the brightness of the snow. I like its hat :-)

Is this in a cemetery? It would scare the living hell out of me if I saw it at night. Neat shot. For what it is worth, I probably would have less DoF so that the interst was mainly on the staue. . . almost portriat in effect.
