Hey there from the Critique Club

First of all, welcome to DPC. I'm always glad to offer critiques and opinions, especially when it's a first entry. Again, welcome.

Camera Work/Technical: One of the biggest voter peeves is image size. Looking through, I see that no one mentioned it, but always try to use the full size parameters that DPC allows. Other than that, there does seem to be a focus issue. It could also be the grain of ISO 1600, but voters like crisp focus and vivid colors.

Lighting: Your lighting is a strength. There are no overexposed areas, and your shadows work well to contrast your subject nicely.

Composition/Content: Your use of empty space also adds strength to the image. You captured very nice detail on the hanger and the wall.

My Opinion: I do get a feeling of emptiness, but I think it could have been amplified by including a bit more of the empty wall. Don't be discouraged, amandalore is right. Voters are sometime hard to figure out. Keep shooting and keep entering. That's the nest way to figure them out.

Wow, I gave this a 7. it made me think empty room immediately. dpc voters are weird that way though. good luck in other challenges... the only thing I would have suggested is a little bit sharper and better focus and maybe more wall around the hook would've made people think empty room a bit more

Original, but more macro and wall than room ,to me.

I like this. It symbolizes the empty room very nicely!

I like the idea....well done.

Where is the empty room?
06/06/2006 09:19:48 PM
I do not feel the emptiness of the room because such a small part of it is shown.
06/06/2006 08:19:49 PM
Just a bit too much of a close up and not enough the to hold my attention.
06/06/2006 07:54:15 PM
I don't see an empty room here.

I don't get a sense of an empty room. this is more of a close up if anything.
06/05/2006 09:48:49 PM
I like the idea, but seeing a little more of an empty room would really help to score this image higher. 6 from me and good luck.
