This photo is just not very applealing - possibly: lighting and/or cropping. To me - It's just a snapshot of a tree on the ground - not a lot of 'personality'per say.

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!

Nice picture, I love the feel of wood bark, and the contrast of cool grass is interesting

Knot really doing much 4 me!

The lighting needed to be balanced from the other side to give it more punch. Did you consider carrying a small piece of white foamcore with you. It will reflect the available light and allow you more leeway in your options, especially in the field, than a second, electric, lightsource.

Hmm... a little rotation of the image, a little levels and saturation (just a tad!), a little sharpening and despeckle, and POP! This is just what I would suggest.

Too dark.

Take a close up of the knot - grass is not interesting
07/22/2002 06:46:00 PM
Interesting find

your knot texture would be better named "not texture" or better yet, if it was not even submitted in the first place. please stop wasting our time and close your account. :)

Some cropping and working with contrasts a bit might help. Good subject.
