Well isn't this the truth! Only thing missing is the roll of toilet paper for the trees! The angle is good. The photo isn't cluttered, the objects are spaced out engough that we can tell exactly what they are. The angle on each item is good. Focus and lighting are ok. I might have tried to cut the bottom wooden thing out of the photo. There is a bit of a glare on it, and it's not straight with the frame of the photo. Great depiction of childhood. Good luck in the challenge.

Great idea, good shot (I hope) ... Pun intended :o)

Reminiscent of country life - what fun! Careful - don't shoot your eye out! Nice composition and detail, but try different lighting?

Nice lighting but the arrangement seems a little loose. 7 - floyd

You conveyed your idea very well, but from what I am learning of "artistic" value here on dpc, you might have done better by eliminating some of the props. One possible alternative would have been to have merely the slingshot sticking out of the back of a pair of jeans draped over a blue chair. The stones could have been on the seat of the chair.
Please understand I am not telling you how take pictures, merely suggesting an alternative.

Interesting layout. Front foreground should have either more or none of the wooden beam there. Angle seems funny, maybe it needs rotating slightly?

This is interesting :) As I look at this photo, I wonder what could have been done simply with the box of matches and the firecracker? :) Good shot... - jmsetzler

great toys...if the slingshot wasn't facing the same way as the air rifle I think the composition would be better.

Yikes... please tell me your kids don't live in our neighborhood!
08/26/2002 08:33:00 PM
this scares me!

Love it! Did you make the sling shot or did you have it. I will guess make, unless you are a lot younger, we never had cable ties. 7

Like the composition of the various stuff. I would have put the white cloth all the way up front so no edge of wood was shown, for the rest: excellent picture!

i could only have a bb gun until i was old enough for a shotgun and rifle i bought both my sons pellet guns

this photo really represents me when I was young. I had all the above items and got into mischief with all of them
08/26/2002 03:36:00 PM
Yep, I remember all those, but I find the picture too ... pre-arranged. I don^t think I would have done better, so I tend to limit the number of objects.

You're not going to tell my mom are you? 5. liltool

+ soap and TP. :P LOL Good visual but could of been presented better. The sheet is wrong for this. Over all I like the idea. Score 6 Justine

this picture was thought provoking, wasn't sure if there's an activist message here due to the randomness of the display of articles
