interesting texture, nice color with yellow and blue/gray; perspective adds to drama of photo

That road in the corner is a little distracting, but I still give it a 9. I think this would do even better in a "pattern" challenge

great subject and composition. would love it if the yellow was a little more vivid, more in contrast with the grey.

Good symmetry. I wish the yellows were a little brighter, and if it had some more contrast, I think the texture would show even better. karmat

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge7
Total Score7

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 love the perpective. It looks like a part of a road.

More contrast - more light!
07/23/2002 11:24:00 AM
Brightness/contrast could make this less flat
07/23/2002 10:54:00 AM
good perspective
07/23/2002 09:18:00 AM
Neat perspective

Intriquing shot, took me a little while to figure out what it was, nice use of symmetry to frame from.

I had a very similar idea but went with something else. I thinking cleaning the the grit before taking the picture would have helped it a lot

What a wonderful subject, too bad it isn't wider so that it covered the whole frame. Good job on exposure and great DOF. I think it would be betterthough if the small stones were removed from the foreground (nitpick), but it does work. It might also have worked using the 640x427 aspect ratio and set it up framing as a portrait.

lol what a strange looking area on this road...Nice texture. Kee

I think this photo would have more impact if the horizon was visible... = 5 - jmsetzler
