This has an impact. It tells me that the long hallway leads to a dead end with no way to exit. I find that disturbing, so it is effective. Technically it could be clearer, but the out of focus adds to the discomfort. What seems to be missing here is the textural element. Sure the walls are smooth, etc, but that doesn't really get the spotlight here. Not bad though.

I would have loved it in B/W

need to crop the wall

Texture is revealed mostly implied by the color differences in the tiles but not that well seen (similar to my entry!). Interesting lighting effects.

Needed to use a tripod for this shot, or shoot consecutive shots so you can pick the best from the shots.

I dont see much of a representation of texture here.
07/24/2002 05:05:00 PM
My eye is drawn more to the visual perception/distortion rather than the focus of the representation of texture.

Technical Aspects4
Meets Challenge4
Total Score5

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!

I'm not sure that I like the sighs cut on the left and right edges... I think this particular view would also work much better in focus... = 5 - jmsetzler

This is an interesting photo with stong lines that draw my focus to the center. but once my eyes get there, they hit a blank wall... literially... The soft focus also washes away any texture that might be there. But that's just me :)

the motion blur hides the biggest textural areas.
07/23/2002 01:56:00 AM
Very cool, but not the best texture-wise.
07/23/2002 12:52:00 AM
The walls are interesting enough alone to make a texture shot out of, I don't really get this shot, but the linear perspective is nice!
07/22/2002 10:10:00 PM
Need to hold the camera still for clear images. Might need a tripod in low-light situations.
07/22/2002 09:33:00 PM
the blur seems to give it that eerie "what will come down the hall next" feeling. Good symmetry.
07/22/2002 07:35:00 PM
Neat effect, I like the mysteriousness of it.
07/22/2002 05:51:00 PM
How did you get the closest picture frames steady, but the rest blurred? I would suggest trying a single wall and maybe a tripod. 4 Swash
07/22/2002 05:50:00 PM
have I missed the point here, where are the textures and why is the image blurred by camera shake
07/22/2002 03:36:00 PM
nice perspective
07/22/2002 01:07:00 PM
I don't see the correlation to the challenge.
07/22/2002 10:42:00 AM
very trippy
07/22/2002 10:37:00 AM
Love the light, reflection and of course the perspective. Kee.
07/22/2002 03:23:00 AM
I like how it makes me feel like I'm walking through the hall. nice converging lines. if you held the camera still, it would help bring out the texture (though you probably ignored that on purpose).
07/22/2002 01:11:00 AM
too blury/shake, get a tripod and use it. the abundance of reflections is distracting
07/22/2002 12:47:00 AM
Perhaps it's the blue that does it, but the thematic connection is not as strong as I'd like.
