Hi! Here’s a comment from the Critique Club.

First Impression:
Oh Oh! Nothing in focus…not a pleasant photo to look at….

Could have been cropped a little tighter. Left wall and ceiling lights are distracting.
Subject was good. Had lots of potential.

Meets the challenge

Unfortunately you didn’t include any notes or information so I don’t know what you intended. I don’t know if you intended for the picture to be as grainy and out of focus. If so, you got lots of feedback already. Too bad you didn’t have the D70. It could have provided the hardware to address the feedback given.

Voters on DPC love to see detail and crispness. Fuzzy and soft only work if the impact is achieved. It’s all about the “Wow” factor to get higher scores.

the focus, or lack there of, is very distracting, as well as the white strip on the left (crop), seems very pix-elated or over processed or something - not sure, but you're sure to get better - especially if this is the class you are in! Certainly meets the challenge - good job :)

I think the focusing might have made this one better.

bit blurry could use more focus????

Too blurry and grainy - try a tripod and autofocus? It is a good idea - but the distractions are too much

blurred, wrongly exposed, terrible crop

Looks oversharpened on the foreground, and far too blurry on the background.

Way too blurry. -3

Very poor focus. Should have croped the left side.

I think the concept or idea is great, but I can't find anything for my eye to focus on. You may have meant it that way or didn't have enough lighting (I've never personally been in a darkroom that large) but it just isn't appealing enough.
The wall on the left seems to distract, as well.

Hope this helps.

Looks too soft.

not sure if the "out of focus" style was intentional????

I would have cropped out the track lights. I like the texture...nice work!

Is this out of focus on purpose?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Exposure on this is not too bad and composition is even OK but focus is off.

Nice idea of a photography class for an entry in a photography contest. Appears to suffer from camera shake - try techniques for holding the camera steady, like propping the camera agains the pillar on the left.

it's blurry and poorly done...you need to take the class ;-)
03/15/2006 05:50:58 AM

03/15/2006 02:52:50 AM
the room seems a bit out of focus but it seems intentional....was it?
