taken by a large monument and used its shadow as the frame, originally intended to use the actual monument as the frame but this seemed more interesting

Descriptions says 'forground should be framing background'. I can't really find that in your photo. She's kinda popping out of the frame. 6

Interesting framing! good work!

very cute idea. would crop the background concrete out though?

Great picture but I'd have cropped into the shadow area more to get rid of the wall and grass in the background - its a bit distracting

Cute concept, well done.

very good composition and idea, but maybe cut the background would have been better...

The woman is overexposed, it would have been better to move in close to the subject and get an exposure lock, then move back to get the composition you wanted. As it is the camera has made an average exposure for the shadowed area and the sun light area resulting in an exposure that is correct for neither.

Nice idea to use the sunlight as a spotlight frame, but too much extraneous stuff, especially in the back.

Nice use of sunlight and shadow for framing :)

i am sure you will hear this a lot but a tighter crop keeping the full outline of the shadow and elimnating the building and the wall wouuld have worked much better. Beautiful model and interesting idea- shame there weren't more dandilions but the one in the cement really had potenial of standing out in a less busy shot.

crop the rest out and have just the shadow and its a winner.

Very creative, although i think it wouldve benifited if you cropped out all the sun lighted area behind the spot light by taking the photo up higher.

I think the background is distracting. There are fugue lines that deviate attetion from main subject. Anyway, I think shadow is an original frame.

Very cool idea :) If you had her little closer, and little bit more contrast... I think it would be a lot better ;)

the crop should have been much tighter...the grass growing through the concrete and the background spoil this otherwise nice shot

Clever idea. Could've simplified the composition by tighter cropping though (the rest of the yard is unnecessary), and it seems that there might be bit of camera shake - maybe a faster shutter speed was necessary?

nice shot but the spotlight isn't really a foreground frame.
06/14/2006 12:24:33 AM
Very cite idea! I wish you had cropped the top third off- the background is distracting
