interesting texture but the overall visual impact of this photo is not very compelling for me. = 5 - jmsetzler

Great choice of subject.

The green grass and stuff frames the subject well. I think a lower perspective might have given this picture a little more depth. karmat

This does not grab my attention - sorry. The cropping needs to be fixed (not sure how), the lighting seems off--Oh I just can't put my finger on it, but not the best to me. Definately has texture.

although this does represent texture it is lacking interest. maybe a different angle or getting closer might have helped.

Technical Aspects5
Meets Challenge4
Total Score6

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

Perhaps a different crop so the limestone is out of the center?

to me, this is not the most interesting subject matter. but, it does show texture, so that's good. have you tried not having the rock in the middle, but maybe following the ROT? that way, the viewer's eyes are allowed to wonder around your shot a little more. the shot also seems a little pixelated, not sure if that's just your camera though, because you have a decent file size. -- gr8photos (3)

the cracked dirt makes for a nice texture. you might try to include a stronger center of interest and avoid placing it smack dab in the middle.

Not sure what is damp here. It all looks parched dry. The object in the center is obviously the focal point but I can't figure out what it is and what it is supposed to do there.

ARgghh. reminds me of the weather we've been having. HOT!
07/22/2002 03:49:00 PM
the idea is good but to me the dry slab would look better off center
07/22/2002 01:26:00 PM
sure have texture on this one....
07/22/2002 11:50:00 AM
closer please
07/22/2002 11:42:00 AM
Needs composure work and maybe a tighter crop.
