Very old piece of rope I found out in the garage. It was very dried out and spindly.

Clearly focused, meets challenge, too centered, a little dark. I like it though.

only two textures in contrast

Sorry I don't like it. I think it is too vague for my liking, I would like a very tight close up of part of this image say just the central knot. Did you try it in balck and white at all?

Pic quality here is a winner, but I'm not totally sold on the communication of the word "texture". 8

This is 'ok'. I think could be a little better. To me, the white balance needs to be fixed - the white is too grey. If the lighting is to stay somewhat dim, I think I would crop in closer. Something is amiss here - it's just not jumping out to me. The focus is good and of course meets the challenge. Still good work.

Good show of texture. For some reason it seems a little drab. Maybe a more colorful background would have livened it up.

Technical Aspects5
Meets Challenge6
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!

i'd change the lighting to make sure that the shadow is almost isn't there.

Like the composition, like the play of the shadows. Picture has a nice rhythm and hence feels alive. Perhaps I'm a little disappointed on the "texture" aspect.

I like this lots. A chaotic representation of texture.
07/23/2002 11:12:00 AM
background space doesn't help any here
07/23/2002 01:01:00 AM
cool, weird framing choice, what was your reason?
07/23/2002 12:34:00 AM
Good idea but it could use a different back color
