Developed upon a vague idea! I switched on my flourescent candle light for sufficiently long time and then when I switched it off, it emitted a dull light, which I've captured in this images.

I have no clue what I'm looking at and it's not attractive or interesting to me.

Too dark subject is lost in it.

Difficult to tell what this is and the title does not help. Images where it is not easy to tell what they are and where the viewer does not immediately make a connection with generally will not score high. That is true with this image.

On the technical side this image is very dark but appears to be out of focus with a lot of electronic noise associated with what can be seen. It does not have a full range of tonality. It is very low contrast and needs a true white point.

too dark on my screen....I can not tell what the image is supposed to be....could be my screen

Well.. I'm not exactly sure what it is I'm seeing here. Is it a part of wall that is being highlighted by a flashlight? Or a figure of some sort? I can see the darkness connection, without it there is no light and light helps accentuate darkness but if this is what you're trying to portray (which I could be mistaken in assuming!) the manner it was done was a bit uninspiring and flat. Going with my assumption, I might suggest a different composition, particularly with the title you've used. Maybe a globe that is bathed mostly in darkness with a small bit of light being shone upon it, thus giving an impression of a heavenly light? Again, I could be way off base with what you're trying to convey so my comments may be quite unhelpful. With the my limited ability to understand what you were going for I can only go by what I see and I'm not sure what it is, so I gave a 2.

Excuse me?

I can't tell what this is?? is it an energy saving lightbulb that's off?

i'm not quite sure what i'm looking at...
06/15/2005 12:48:14 PM
What is this? I can't quite make it out. Even after looking at the title, I still can't make out what this it.

But apparently he whispered and said, "but only a tiny, tiny bit."

Sorry, I just can't figure out what it is. Excellent darkness, though. But that's not really enough ... I'm supposed to see what darkness means to you, and I'm afraid I have no idea. I'll come back & try again later.

Maybe taken earlier but with a dark filter to avid grain and increase detail???
