Hi from the Critique Club!

This certainly an intriguing image. I just wish I could see more of it. Entering images of this size will always generate lower scores, but I get the feeling that you don't mind that;)

From an artistic point of view it is very impressionistic and abstract, which I quite like. The brain tries to search for shapes and patterns in the make-up like an psychological ink blot test.

The vibrancy of the blue is in contrast to the other colours, but it is not enough to meet the challenge.

The effect of the mirror blurs the make-up in an interesting way, but that it is a mirror is only apparent after the challenge with your notes explaining. A bigger image would have totally altered the viewer's perception.

Conrgratulations on doing your own thing;)

Way to small... The voters here usally crash photos in that size like you are probably expiriencing now:/

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what this abstract photo is. There is some contrast, but it's such a busy photo, it doesn't work well for me.

What is it?

Interesting, nice coloring.

It may quell the artistic spirit but identifiable subjects seem to score better here.

Like a painting. A little too distracting (IMO) wish there was something to keep me focused on the image. Love the title

Dawww - Look @ this little photographer!

Nice color, but this abstract is too small and blurry for my liking. Would like to see more texture.

Not sure what this is. Picture seems kind of flat.

Interesting, but way too small for me.

Unless you make the image bigger, I can't appreciate the detail in the photo.
09/05/2005 12:45:41 AM
You get a 10 just cause!
