It really would have made more sense to enter the beach challenge. I mean, I live in Hawaii. Beaches and Hawaii are synonymous. But I don't like the beach.

I dunno how this will do. Maybe it's a bit too manipulated, too artistic (but I'm not an artist), and a bit too surreal. Sumfink. I like it, though.

I think that's it.

* Greetings from the Critique Club *

Hi Sandy.

Well, the main thing that bothers me with this photo is the rope of the clothes line. It just doesn't seem to sit right in the scheme of the photo. You came up with a great idea but maybe it just wasn't executed the right way to please all the voters. I guess it's a tricky one because you either base it on the lines of the rope or the lines of the wood in the background. Either way it meets the challenge.

I personally don't like the clothes line being blurred so much. I would of preferred to have seen the pegs brought more forward into the picture so they are a little more dominant. This may of helped getting the line working better in the foreground of the photo. I realise that your camera doesn't have any manual controls in regards to aperture settings but it was this which helped throw out the line in the foreground. Having those pegs moved forward and focussing on those would of focused the line more, blurred the background a bit and made those pegs pop out.

I think the lighting has worked well and is nicely balanced and the colours sit nicely. Some people may not of liked the border being so thick and could of marked you down a bit for that. I like borders but I find this one slightly too thick.

Not one of your best entries but a solid one none the less. Keep at it and best of luck with future challenges.

I think this shot works really well, the lighting is really nice... as are the colors. I think I'd have to disagree with you though, you look like an artist to me.

Nice abstract! You were an artist when you took this shot. I gave it a 7.

Nice colors. Not sure about the front part of the line being out of focus. I'd have preferred it sharper, but that's probably just me.

A good idea and I like the colours but perhaps too much lack of focus for the foreground of the photo, making this a bit distracting
