Too much light

Low key is characterized by few highlights. There is lots of highlight here.

I've scored this low as it doesn't shout 'Low key' to me, also as a landscape shot its a little flat and un-interesting. I'd have tried making this black and white and bumped up the contrast a little.

"Low key describes a mostly dark image, with few highlights" I think this may be stretching the "Mostly Dark" part of the challenge ...

This doesn't feel "low key" to me...

In my opinion, this photograph does not address the low key element of this challenge. Maybe I'm missing something. If I am, PM me and I would consider raising my vote.

Not even close to low key...this is just a regular landscape shot.
03/23/2006 12:04:57 PM
though it is a good pic i dont see how it fits the challenge
03/23/2006 04:29:55 AM
this is a low key lighting challenge...????????????????
03/22/2006 08:29:48 PM
This doesn't look low key
03/22/2006 03:28:00 PM
I am sorry, but if you can explain to me how this is low-key I may mark you higher than a 3...

This does not meet the challenge to me.

A place of my childhood(now I live in New York City, a far cry from Sussex). I like the painterly aspect.

This really doesn't qualify as low-key. It's a bit dim but not "mostly dark." There are certainly many more mid- and light-tones than dark-tones. Composition is a little boring as well.

hmm this is acutally high key high key vs low key
