Pablo Picasso in training no doubt. I hope you continue to encourage this sort of training, you could possible retire early. This is Childhood, without question. I like the diagonals and the framing. The lighting is a little dark and/or contrasty for my tastes, but the overall look of this has an artsy feel. Good Luck - Gotcha

I think this would be more effective in horizontal with the eye leading down the wall and into the hallway a bit (or room?). A bit too dark. Good idea, and definately describes childhood.

I wish we could see this better! I really like the idea behind this. Definately portrays childhood nicely. I would say that I wish it were brighter, but I think that if it were brighter, it would be even harder to see. I like the angle on this very much. Great job and good luck in the challenge.

Give that kid some paper! My mother would have shot me for this. Angle and lighting makes this an interesting shot.

Good choice of subject - I almost did grafitti myself. Overall the shot it very dark but I like the doorframe in shot. - floyd

The lighting and angle are awful. I suspect there was an intersting shot to be had here. 2 Jak

I liked the idea, but may be you can find a better angle because the door is very distracting.

perhaps if you emphasized the scribbling to be low to the ground as a child would have it. it seems too high up

Nice idea. Unfortunatly for me, I have seen this in my own home. Focus looks good. The lighting seems a bit dark on the subject.

hehehe, Been there, done that... I like the strong linesof the door jam and the molding... The lighting bothered me at first, but it's grown on me...

Not quite clear enough, I'm afraid. It's a nice idea, but I would have tried to bring out a little more contrast.
08/26/2002 08:43:00 PM
good composition...I like the muted tones

Man I got in big trouble when I did that once. I wish there was a little more light used in this picture. Just seems a little too dark. 5.

Ewww, bad memory. It's a bit dark, artistry isn't very good (scribbles, after all)

I like the fact that it raises questions. Such as .. what hapened to the door ? .. Where is this ? In terms of photo, it is a bit too flat and the drawing fails to capture the attention (that's why I wonder about the door I guess)

I think if there was a little more even light, so that the scribble was more easily visible, it would be more effective. karmat

This definitely meets the challenge - I can picture so many parents' looks of horror as they see their "little monsters" work on the interior decor that they've just finished painting. However the photo itself doesn't grab me on a visual level. The lighting is a little too dark.

Very sweet ... this brings on a nostalgic smile.
08/26/2002 01:24:00 PM
Very dark, hard to tell what you're looking at. Some additional lighting might have helped. 6.

Childhood :) I believe that I got in trouble a few times myself for similar acts of childhood disregard :) This is an interesting view with the dim lighting... - jmsetzler

Good idea, interesting framing, but the exposure is just too dark.

VERY good concept. Considering your setup, angle and lighting would have driven the point home better.
