I think the background is interesting, and I can accept the effect you tried with the overexposure. I think it's pretty obvious it was intentional.

It's a decent photo, but think about it: your background effect draws attention to it. But does the moose? The lighting on the moose is pretty flat, and he's even positioned outside of the "glow". (Note if you put him in the glow, you would probably need to change the crop so its not the center.)

One other thing, the perspective distortion is obvious on the left because of the tile lines. It might also have been interesting to have a square perspective here.

Just a little comment: The overexposure of the background was intentional. Although I agree that perhaps it would have been better, if there were less.

hahah. it almost looks like he's in one of those cushy walled white rooms. he just needs one of those white straight jackets...hehe. the background feels a bit too overexposed. given that he sits in corner, seeing the lines leading in would have helped the composition a little.

Too bright in the middle?

great shot & composition. Parts of the tile to the immediate left of the moose is over exposed & somewhat distracting. Overall, very nice.

the corner in this is way too blown out....which interests me as the lighting on the moorse or dear or what ever the stuff animal is very good.

I like this - blown out background and near perfect exposure of moose. Slightly too dusty (moose) but good enough.

Very nice shot. Love the high key negative space and the simplicity of the subject! Two things I think could make this even better...One, move the lighting around to bring out the lines in the tiles to emphasize that he (mr. moose) is in a corner. Or, two move the lighting around (or use white poster board as a background) to remove the lines in the tiles to emphasize the negativity of the space! Nicely composed shot!

I bet he didn't! He's cute, I have a friend who loves Moose and he would make a great addition to her collection. Anyway, you met the challenge requirement but the shot leaves me wanting. The use of negative space is overdone for this one and the white blow-out in the middle is really distracting. A 4

I like the subject - the sitting moose -, anyway I would turn him in the other direction to have space where he looks and the background tiles seem a lot overexposed for me.

Looks lonley, the background is very overexpoced, but I like it anyway.
